Have you browsed through our ready-made apparel designs and found nothing that suits you?


Do you already have a custom design for your Corporate T-Shirts/Apparel and just want to proceed with customising your own t-shirts/apparels from scratch?


Then sure! We, at Newsy Prints, can produce factory-made apparels which is specially and custom-made for you or your company based on your individual requirements. Majority of our customers opt for custom-made apparels which offers them the flexibility of their own unique corporate apparel.


For the order process, such as quotation, placing order, payment terms, delivery and etc., refer to our walkthrough on the Newsy Prints ordering process!

Custom-made VS Ready-made


You can always refer to our ready-made catalogue to obtain a rough idea of what you require and let us know you want custom-made apparels out of those.


      • The difference is that ready-made apparels are usually already produced and in stock locally whereas custom-made apparels are produced on-demand by our factories offshore
      • The pros of ready-made apparel is that lead-time is much shorter and additional effort of designing t-shirt is not required. Customers opt for this usually when they need it urgently or do not have a specific requirement in mind or quantity is low.
      • The cons of ready-made apparel is that apart from printing designs, there isn’t much left for customization hence the apparel is much less unique.

Some points to take note of:


A few factors of consideration for factory custom-made apparels with us:


1. Order Quantity:

As custom-made apparels are usually made-to-order with our factories, we would usually require at least a minimum order quantity of 50-100, depending on the desired designs of the apparel. We usually support quantities ranging from 50, all the way to 20,000 or more!


However, if required, we can also do a lower quantity order, although the unit prices will be higher. Otherwise, you may also consider ready-made apparels that are sourced locally.



2. Order Lead Time:

The lead-time of the custom-made apparel projects can range from 2-8 weeks upon confirmation of order, depending on the quantity and complexity.


For larger quantity orders (>1500), another factor to consider, apart from our factories’ own manufacturing lead-time, would be the delivery time-frame. We would have to split the deliveries by different batches (one batch would roughly be about 500 quantities) and this might sometimes lead to slightly longer overall lead-time. We perform the deliveries ourselves! But fret not, this is something we have been doing for decades and we’ll put in our best to meet your time-frame. In the event we can’t, we would be sure to inform you timely.


If you require apparels more urgently, we would suggest going for ready-made ones.

3. Fabric Materials & Colors:

In the apparel, garment and textile manufacturing industry, there are numerous types of fabrics, weaving types, colors, and etc. Each manufacturer have their own available materials, colors and etc. We would usually find the best suited ones for you from our available choices.


For a list of our available fabric materials and colors for custom-made apparels, kindly refer to Fabric Materials and Colors


It is also perfectly fine for you if you do not need to go down to that level of details. Just simply tell us your intended material in general (e.g. Dri-fit, Cotton, Blended) and intended use (e.g. for employees mostly outdoors, or indoor air-conditioned use, etc.) and we can recommend the material for you.



4. Apparel Style:


Apparel Style essentially includes more information on the desired apparel including:

    • Apparel Type (e.g. Round-neck T-Shirt, Polo T-Shirt, Uniform, Singlet, etc.)
    • Collar Type (e.g. Standard Polo Flat Collar, Stand Collar, Mandarin Collar, Crew-neck/Round-neck, V-neck, etc.)
    • Sleeve Type (e.g. Short Sleeve, Long Sleeve, 3/4 Sleeve, Sleeveless)
    • Button/Zip (e.g. number of buttons, colored buttons / clear buttons, zip, etc.)
    • Pocket (e.g. Front outer pocket, Front inner pocket, sleeve pen-pocket, etc.)



5. Apparel Design:

If you have a desired t-shirt design, feel free to specify! It would be better if you could provide us an artwork/virtual design on the apparel so we can visualise better. 


Some common addition apparel designs:

Piping: Piping is an additional fabric strip trimmed into the garment to define edges or style lines of the apparel. In our cases, it is mainly used for additional style or design look.
