- Royal Handles It All With Expertise & Efficiency.

Royal Apparel offers custom orders and options for your private label needs. If you cannot find what you need in our online catalog, we can custom make it for you. We are experts at producing private label and custom apparel. You are able to custom make your apparel based on our existing products or we can design something specifically for you.

Let's take you through the Royal process your order will receive.


We will make an approval sample for you on all custom orders. Production will not commence until you approve your sample. Samples will be charged at 2.5 X the garment cost. If we have to make a pattern for you, there will also be pattern and grading charges. These charges will depend on the complexity of the style ordered. You can expect your sample within 1 to 2 weeks from date order is placed.

The Production Process
1. Customer provides Royal Apparel with a detailed tech pack or a sample of a garment they want us to duplicate. Customer also picks colors from Royal’s swatch card or sends fabric samples to match. If there is a special fabric that is not in our catalog, we will need a yard of fabric to duplicate.
2. Royal creates a pattern and makes a sample.
3. Royal submits fit sample, lab-dips and fabric.
4. Customer approves and/or gives comments on all of the above.
5. If necessary, we will submit revised fit sample, lab-dips and fabric.
6. Your order goes into production and is delivered according to the lead-times below.
