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.

SpectraSpun Softness

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.

Custom Runs

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.

An Artist's Canvas

Spectratees makes the deepest black and the brightest white t-shirts in the industry. Our vast spectrum of fabric colors is the finest blank textile canvas a garment printer can use to showcase their creativity on.

Excellence is Standard

The incredible effort and attention that we put into all our products reflects a distinctive quality you can see and touch. This excellence follows everything we do from our designs, to our service, to our connoisseur-class t-shirts.

We are a one-stop fashion resource for all your t-shirt and garment printing needs. Our website is packed with news, technical assistance, and apparel knowledge to help you build your brand better, quicker, and smarter.
