Unfortunately, the apparel business has a bad reputation for their links to sweatshops. Our t-shirt printing company, Inkthreadable, also have a stern stance about sweatshops and are proud to say that their employees are paid above the national living wage regardless of the position they hold within their business.
We believe that it's important to be aware of the ways in which garments are supplied and manufactured, and in turn, ensure that the brands we offer comply with the laws and regulations in the countries in which they operate. Inkthreadable will not knowingly trade with any brand or supplier that does not comply with these laws and regulations.
Inkthreadable uses Kornit DTG printers. All Kornit machines use water based eco-friendly inks that are vegan friendly and not tested on animals (which is very important to us!). In fact their Kornits sustainability process is big on eco.
"We are committed to maintaining and upholding responsible workplace and environmental standards. All US production and office facilities have received Platinum accreditation from WRAP.

"We are proud to produce responsibily made garments, manufatured in a humane, sustainable, eco-conscious way. 100% NO SWEATSHOPS.
"Our sewing floor is 100% solar powered and creates almost no landfill, everything we can't turn into a tee is either recycled or repurposed."
