Our Company

Printed locally, worn globally.

We’re a tight-knit group of people who are driven to make quality custom t-shirts that feature the compelling messages and beautiful designs of our treasured customers. We love putting new things out into the world.

Shirts are what we make. People are our passion.

We operate as both a B2B (business-to-business) and B2C (business-to-consumer) company, but we prefer to think of ourselves as H2H (human-to-human).
The exceptional experiences we create for both our team and our customers is a fundamental part of what we do and who we are. It both motivates us and inspires us to do great work.

More than
just shirts

When we started Real Thread in a dorm room 12 years ago, we realized that a t-shirt, believe it or not, can be an extraordinarily powerful messaging medium.
The message, whether it’s friendly, funny, emotionally moving or anything in between, is one that matters. The shirts we made then, and continue to make now, serve as vehicles to connect, challenge and inspire, no matter what the message might be.

Our Values

The “real thread” is the connective fiber that runs through everything we do, giving our people a place we want to work to produce something of which we all can be truly proud. These values are at the heart of who we are as an organization and how we operate each day.

01 Results matter

We take results seriously and always look to improve the outcome.

02Create wow

We aren’t satisfied with simply meeting our customer’s expectations—we go above and beyond to exceed them.

03Love your neighbor

We do unto each other as each would do unto themself.

04Press onward

We know that when the going gets tough, the tough get going.

05Team together

We put team over self because we know greatness is a collective effort.
