Vector About

About Vector Distribution

Vector is known for expert garment screenprinting and fulfillment. We manage high-volume programs—printing tees, hoodies, and more for brands that are mainly found in high end boutiques, and surf, skate and board shops around the world.

We’re meticulous about our work. Our customers say that side-by-side, our prints are crisper, more vibrant and higher quality than others. And when your brand is on the move, that assurance of quality is everything.

Printing

We specialize in high-volume screenprinting. Our automatic textile presses handle 1-14 color prints. We excel in a wide range of techniques including plastisol, waterbase, discharge, metallic, gel, puff, reflective, high density, foil, flocking and embroidery.

Fulfillment

We also handle many aspects of fulfillment including inner labeling, outer labeling, hang-tagging, folding, polybagging and even drop shipping.

Choose from tagless inner labels (printed) or traditional woven labels (sewn inside, outside, or both).  We’ll hang your hangtags—wherever and however you like.

Our automated folding and bagging system speeds up our work and keeps garments neat and clean in transit or in your store. Want us to add an item sticker or a UPC code to the bag? Just ask.

Let us know where you’d like your shirts to go, and we’ll prepare any required documentation – packing lists, bills of lading, certificates of origin, etc. — and we’ll ship and bill according to your preferences. Once your shipment is on its way, we’ll forward copies of all the packing lists for your records.

FAQs

How should we submit artwork?

art filesWe prefer digital files created in Illustrator or Photoshop, preferably with a separate layer for each color. We can also accept PDF, JPG, TIFF, and BMP files. If your artwork doesn’t include separations, we’ll provide an estimate to separate the colors as needed. If you don’t have digital files, we can accept original, camera-ready artwork and once received, we’ll follow up with an estimate to digitize and separate the art as needed.

Which garments are best for my project?

It depends on your market. Younger people have dramatically different fit and comfort preferences than older buyers. And sizes can vary widely– a large in one brand might be the equivalent of a small in another. If you’re unsure which brand, style or size is best for you, talk to us and we’ll recommend the best garments for your market.

What’s your turn-around time?

What about pricing?

It’s easy. Just contact us with some key information about your project, and we’ll provide a quote within one or two business days. If low price is among your needs, talk to us, we’ll help you identify options that can minimize your costs.
