T-Shirt Blanks Manufacturer Spotlight: Spectra USA Apparel

T-shirt blanks are pretty popular in the screen printing business.

Blanks are simply t-shirts without any branding, many times manufactured with tear-out care labels, so they can be used by other companies looking to either resell them as t-shirts under their own brand name or with graphic designs on them.

This week I’m featuring a t-shirt blanks apparel manufacturer who is based out of Southern California.

We are the manufacturer offer blank tees.  Spectra USA Apparel is all about beautiful quality at a great value.

99% of our tees are all constructed from USA materials, knitted and dyed in California. The tees are cut and sewn at our factories in Baja.  Since our entire manufacturing process occurs within a 150 mile radius we implement a very proactive quality control process that gives us the quality and consistency we’re known for, minimizes our carbon footprint and utilizes a 100% North American work force.

We’re the blank of choice by most marquee brands, screen printers and merchandise companies.

Our inventory model is very simple, we keep large quantities of prevalent colors and prepared material on hand, enabling us to fill orders fast.

  1. Hey TUG

    Thanks for remaining such a great resource for the t-shirt community. We really dig your work. (hat tip)

    I’m sad to see Printerp had a customer who was so disappointed with a shirt of ours.

    We work hard to have a solid relationship with all of our customers and, I was really surprised to read such a negative review without hearing anything about it directly from Printerp at the office. It’s the very rare occasion when folks are disappointed with our work, but when they are we jump right on that kind of thing and set about fixing it for them.

    I’m not aware of any customers of ours who don’t already know this about how Spectra works. Seems strange to me that Printerp doesn’t know that actually. Seems like he missed an opportunity to let us help him/her out, which really is a pity. :(

    Keep up the great work TUG! See you on T-shirt forum sometime :)



  2. I have used Spectra tees in the past and I must say they are soft but the complaints I have received were:boxy and tight. We have since switched to Next Level and everyone seems to be happy.
