The Production Process

Minimum Order Quantities (MOQs)

Indie Source has a minimum order quantity (MOQ) of 300 units for each style. This can be broken down in a number of ways. For example, you may produce one shirt design in three colors, so 100 units of one design in three colors make a total of 300. You may also break down each color tee into sizes, so you get 25 pieces of small, 25 medium, 25 large, and 25 extra-large. Talk to us about how you’d like to divvy up the colors and sizes, so it totals 300.

Production Lead Times


The standard production lead time is from six to eight weeks, depending on the availability of the material or complexity of the design. If you use an in-stock item, your lead time may be lower. The lead time increases if you use a custom fabric or trim. If you use custom milled fabric or trim, for example, an additional three to six weeks may be needed; any other send outs such as custom screen printing and embroidery, garment dyed, specialty wash, etc., will also increase the lead time, which will vary.
