Made in Canada, made to last
Forget the cheap, throwaway t-shirts that end up in a landfill. We tailor high-quality garments your employees, players, volunteers or [insert humans here] will actually want to wear again and again. Garments that are 100% customizable, ridiculously comfortable, socially and environmentally responsible, and stand up to years of wearing, washing and drying. Garments that feel good on your body and for your community. They’re made in Canada and they’re made to last, just like you.
WHY LOCAL LAUNDRY
When we say 100% custom, we mean 100%. We can customize any garment to your needs, whether it's the fabric, fit, colour or design. Even the neck tags can be changed. Yeah, that custom.
YOUR MARKETING PARTNER
We don’t stop at printing. We’ll leverage our platform to tell your story and hit your targets, whether it’s a quick shout-out on Instagram or a full-scale marketing campaign. You choose.
WE GIVE BACK
We’re all about giving back to our local community. If you’re game, we’ll make your custom collaboration a charitable one by donating back to local charities and raising awareness for your cause.

Custom Garment Testimonials
We worked with Local Laundry to create a custom t-shirt for our employees and could not be happier!! I especially love that these t-shirts are made in Canada and that we were also able to support a local small business in the process while reducing our carbon footprint. The t-shirts are SO soft, and everyone loved them! Can’t wait to order more in the future!BrittanyIntuit

Our team was so happy with the beautiful, great fitting, extremely soft crew necks we ordered from Local Laundry. The whole process from beginning to end was smooth sailing and the whole team at Local Laundry was very responsive. So happy to have found a company that makes 100% made in Canada products and will be recommending them in the future!KateNutrichem
Local Laundry offers exceptional, high-quality and sustainable garments that provided the perfect touch to ARC’s 25th anniversary celebrations. Working closely with Local Laundry staff, we created a custom hoodie and t-shirt to commemorate this important milestone. The garments were expertly crafted, with extra seam finishing for durability. The Local Laundry team also coordinated gift boxes, shipping logistics and included special touches to make our staff’s unboxing experience epic for our 900 employees. We couldn’t be happier with the service, communication and willingness to think outside the box and go the extra mile. Highly recommended - we’re looking forward to our next collaboration!JulieLos Angeles, CA
How it works
Working with our in-house designer or partnering with a talented local artist, we'll illustrate a concept for your custom garments that tells the story behind your organization, event or initiative. If you already have a logo or design created, we'll print it for you.
Making your garments isn’t just slapping a design on a t-shirt. We work with you to select and customize the perfect fit and fabric, whether it’s for performance or everyday comfort.
We don’t stop at your garments: We’re your marketing partners. Whether you’re handing the garments out to volunteers or selling them to your following, we can help get your story into your community.
We aren’t your basic printer—we’re a hands-on marketing partner. Whether it’s a simple shout-out across our social platforms or a full-scale campaign, we’ll partner with you on a marketing plan that leverages our soapbox to help you get your message out. Here’s a shortlist of how we’ve supported past clients:

Frequently Asked Questions
We offer a range of garments, from t-shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies to accessories like hats, and toques. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to see all your options.
You can email us at email@example.com for—ahem—a laundry list of options.
Our minimum order for something custom is 100 units per style and colour and we need about 4-5 weeks to produce them. If you'd like to print on our existing inventory we can do orders of 20-100 pieces.
Depending on the design and number of printing locations, there may be additional costs. Send us an email about your project and we can discuss what this looks like.
If you want to collaborate with our in-house designer or an artist, we require the full price of the custom design up front. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on our different levels of custom design.
That depends on you! Most custom clients select the garment cut and colour of their choice— but even those can be modified with the help of our production team. There’s the design we print on the garments, plus you can opt to add a woven label with your branding, custom neck tags, hang tags—you name it, we’re here to help you create it.
Because we cut, sew, knit and print all of our garments from scratch, they take time. The design phase takes 1 to 3 weeks, depending on your level of involvement, and production takes an additional 4 to 6 weeks, plus approximately one week for shipping. If you’re supplying your own design, we can shave time off these estimates.
As you can probably guess, customized garments can’t be sold to anyone but you because they’re designed and made for you! So, we don’t offer returns or exchanges, BUT if your garments arrive with any imperfections, we want to know so we can make it right.
If you purchase a custom design through us using our designer, you are free to use the design as you wish on any internal/external documentation, social platforms, etc. However, Local Laundry retains the rights to printing the design on any clothing or other garments, to protect our brand and ensure utilization of socially conscious garments.
