Successful Delivery Rate

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

4-6 WEEKS STANDARD PRODUCTION LEAD TIME

The standard production lead time is from four to six 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 significantly lower. The lead time increases if you use a custom fabric or trim. If you use custom milled fabric, for example, an additional three to six weeks may be needed; for fabric dying, one more week would be necessary.
