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

We require you order at least 100 garments (150 for toques) for custom orders. If you’re ordering different styles or colours, the requirement is at least 50 of each style/colour.
Just shipping! Your garment costs include the costs of custom design, production, logistics and even a basic marketing campaign, including email, blog, social media and podcast features. You only pay for the costs of garments, shipping and taxes!
If you want to collaborate with our in-house designer or an artist we contract from the local community, we’ll require a $500, non-refundable deposit to cover their costs. The good news? Once your order goes into production, we’ll deduct the deposit from your final invoice.
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 manufacturers. There’s the design we print on the garments, plus you can opt to add a woven or leather patch 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 3 to 5 days 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 haven’t gathered by now, we’re proudly Canadian, and we don’t want the artwork we design for you to find a home on any garment that isn’t 100% Canadian-made, which is why we retain the rights to any designs we create together.
