Transparent Supply Chain

There is nothing on the market like the Cotton of the Carolinas t-shirt brand. TS Designs is leading the industry by bringing the entire process, from dirt to shirt, back within arm’s reach – or at least, a day’s drive. Everything happens within 600 miles. It’s not just USA made; it’s Carolina made.

These shirts are made from conventionally grown North Carolina cotton and you can track them through the entire supply chain back to the farmer. You can even meet the farmer yourself during our annual Cotton Harvest Tour. Try one on for size! They’re made from a super soft, medium-weight (5.4oz) ringspun fabric.

Certified by You

Cotton of the Carolinas offers a level of transparency you won’t find anywhere else. Every shirt can be tracked from the farm to the finished product using a combination of unique color threads found on the inside of each t-shirt. If you’re tired of buying clothing with nothing but a meaningless country of origin on the tag, then this is the shirt for you! Know what you’re buying and who it impacts!

Styles Available

CAR1200

The CAR1200 is your nowhere-close-to-basic, basic tee. Made from super-comfortable ringspun, Carolina-grown cotton, this t-shirt will be your go-to choice for every day that ends in “y.” It’s a medium weight (5.4 oz) fabric that’s constructed for durability, so that you can actually wear it every day of the week without it showing signs of wear.

Shirt Attributes:

  • 100% Carolina-grown cotton, 5.4 oz ring-spun jersey
  • Double needle stitching on critical seams
  • Shoulder-to-shoulder interior neck taping for added durability
  • Small, inconspicuous size tab in the neck
These are before-shrinkage measurements, and can vary by +/- 1″. All REHANCE printed and dyed shirts will come fully pre-shrunk and lose about 5% of their length and width as a result.

Think about everything that’s great about the CAR1200. Now add a feminine touch. Violà! There you have it: the CAR2302. With a slightly more fitted and flared cut, not to mention the capped sleeves, these tees are a perfect go-to for the ladies. Same medium weight (5.4oz) fabric that’s constructed for durability, and looks super wear after wear.

Color Options

Cotton of the Carolinas shirts are printed and dyed using our own REHANCE process. Since we dye the shirts after we print them, we can offer a large array of colors to choose from.

You can check out our standard colors to the right and order color samples below. If you’re in the market for a large order (1,000 shirts or more) and are looking from something a little different, talk with your account rep about our extended color library.

How to Buy

Standard Orders

minimum 100-200pc orders

REHANCE

Our simplest order method with the lowest minimum order, a standard REHANCE order is just what you need if you have good artwork and want us to take care of the rest. You’ll receive a great quality shirt printed and dyed with our REHANCE technology.

Minimum Order 200 (100 for certain colors)
Print Type no-feel REHANCE inks
Colors Available all 20 shown in the colors section
Typical Price Range $11.00 – $13.00 Low end of price range is based on a 1-color front print at 500 shirts. High end price is based on a 2-color front, 2-color back at 200 shirts.
Standard Turn Time 2-3 weeks from order submission

Fabric-Dyed

A standard fabric-dyed order is your best bet for a low price at low volume. Your color options are limited, but it’s a great way to get your hands on a Cotton of the Carolinas t-shirt on a limited budget.

Minimum Order 100
Print Type planet-friendly tactile inks
Colors Available white and black

High Volume Orders

minimum 1000-4000pc orders

REHANCE

If you want REHANCE-printed Cotton of the Carolinas t-shirts but need a lower price point, we’ve got what you need as long as you’ve got the volume! All you have to do is pre-purchase 1,000 Cotton of the Carolinas t-shirts – which we will inventory for you here at TS Designs – and then you can call out print and dye orders as you need them. All at a substantially lower price than our standard REHANCE orders.

Minimum Order 1000 initial blanks purchase, 200 for print/dye orders
Print Type no-feel REHANCE inks
Colors Available all 20 shown in the colors section
Typical Price Range $10.00 – $12.00 Low end of price range is based on a 1-color front print at 500 shirts. High end price is based on a 2-color front, 2-color back at 200 shirts.
Standard Turn Time 2 months for blanks to be made, 2-3 weeks for print/dye orders

Fabric-Dyed

This option is for those looking for Cotton of the Carolinas at the lowest price possible. If the no-feel print of REHANCE isn’t important to you, we can dye the fabric for your shirts during the finishing process rather than dyeing the shirts themselves, saving you a lot of money. Minimums are higher, but if you can commit to the volume, there’s no way to get Cotton of the Carolinas for less!

Minimum Order 1000 or 4000 initial blanks purchase (see colors available), 200 for print orders
Print Type planet-friendly tactile inks
Colors Available 1000 shirts: white and black
4000 shirts: custom match
Typical Price Range $9.00 – $11.00 Low end of price range is based on a 1-color front print at 500 shirts. High end price is based on a 2-color front, 2-color back at 200 shirts.
Standard Turn Time 2 months for blanks to be made, 2 weeks for print

Blanks

Have your own printer that you trust? We also sell blanks! Just like our fabric-dyed orders, we will dye the fabric for your shirts during the finishing process rather than dyeing the shirts after they’re made. If you can commit to the volume, this is a great way to offer Cotton of the Carolinas while maintaining your existing relationship with your current printer

Minimum Order 1000
Colors Available white and black
Typical Price Range $7.00 – $8.00
Standard Turn Time 2 months

We also have the ability to produce completely custom knit products at very high volume (10,000+ units). For more information, contact Eric Henry at eric@tsdesigns.com.
