Developing great products starts with great people. 289c Apparel has more than 350 employees focused on designing, producing and shipping college products that meet the highest standards in the industry. This individualized brand focus from our entire staff is what makes 289c unique in the business.

289c Apparel’s first class creative team includes both apparel and headwear designers with knowledge of the latest trends in fashion and art. Retail and omni-commerce divisions are also available for additional help in bringing your brand to your customer in a first-class methodology.

The evolution of 289c took a major step forward with the 2010 opening of our new headquarters.

Located in the heart of the Dallas-Fort Worth Airport’s main extended freeport, the 289c Apparel headquarters is second to none in the design, manufacturing and shipping of branded clothing. The 400,000 square-foot, state-of-the-art facility boasts advanced technological systems including full RF scanning capabilities. Our experienced team can easily handle thousands of SKUs through our advanced fulfillment warehouse management system, so our customers receive the right products, at the right time, in perfect condition.

The fulfillment center also houses a state-of-the-art screen-printing area with six Mer presses industrial printing machines that can generate millions of impressions. We also have compliance and value added services areas to customize your branded materials. Protecting the environment is also important to everyone at 289c Apparel which is why we are continually looking for ways to reduce our environmental impact. This philosophy has helped us develop a recycling program for paper, cardboard and plastic packaging materials and other items that pass through the facility.
