Artwork and Design
uwärē brands is known for having some of the best artwork in the printed apparel industry. Our artists have a long history in printed apparel design and in addition to our current licensors, they have worked with such major brands as Panama Jack, Ocean Pacific, and Disney to name just a few.
We subscribe to leading research and trend services to keep up-to-date on changes in fashion that may impact our business and the business of our licensor partners.
Artwork and design for all apparel programs are created and developed in-house. The company employs five full-time artists who work exclusively on uwärē brands programs from our Concord, NC office. When necessary, the company engages outside freelance artists on a work-for-hire basis.
Manufacturing and Sourcing
By choice, we print the majority of our apparel programs in our Rockwell, NC facility where we employ local people who operate eight automatic presses with a single shift capacity of 125,000 pieces a week. The Rockwell facility also folds, bags, and tags jobs to customer specifications.
We also have global sourcing capabilities as well as large production networks and when necessary, we take advantage of these resources. However, our preference is to produce product within the United States whenever we can.
Warehousing and Fulfillment
We operate 55,00 square foot warehouse in Salisbury, NC with full pick, pack, and ship capabilities using state-of-the-art systems, including EDI capabilities.
