The Spectra Difference
North American Made
We are working hard to keep jobs in America and we strive to make garments with as few imported elements as possible. We use yarns made in the USA and our products are locally made in Los Angeles or in Baja, Ensenada
Quality is King
We pride ourselves on producing the finest quality garments in the industry. Spectratees makes the best fitting t-shirts money can buy by making luxurious, fashionable and long-lasting closet favorites.
Our super-soft SpectraSpun cottons are ringspun, for the softest touch, great fit and long-lasting finish. The higher quality of our garments means they feel slightly denser to touch, softer on the skin, and last over time.
Tear Out Labels
We've designed all of our garments to carry the Spectra easy-tear label for effortless removal and re-branding. This allows our printers to rebrand quickly with the peace of mind you only get from Spectra apparel.
We can create custom runs to suit all your t-shirt and action-wear needs. Our vertically integrated production line means true production agility you can leverage, and we have the fastest turnaround times in the industry.
