Wholesale T shirts – The Ultimate Purchasing Guide For Your Clothing Business


Hi guys I’m Carissa with BELLA+CANVAS
and today I’m going to break down all the things you need to know about
purchasing wholesale blanks we get a ton of questions about where you can
purchase bella canvas where we ship to etc which I’ll cover in this video where
do you guys purchase ball canvas from what’s your experience like please let
us know in the comments section below now let’s get started one of the most
common questions we get is how do i purchase Bella canvas the main method we
recommend is to purchase Bella Canvas through one of our wholesale partners a
wholesaler is basically a distributor of our BELLA+CANVAS product along with
other apparel brands plus bags accessories etc the great thing about
ordering through a wholesaler is that they have warehouses all over the
country that are deeply stocked in inventory this can reduce shipping times
and costs also most of these wholesalers offer freight incentives not to mention
these companies have great sales support and can help you with recommendations
and other information we’ll link to the list of who carries Bella canvas in the
description below you can also purchase certain products through bellacanvas.com in particular this gives you exclusive access to all our fast fashion
styles where we’re launching something new every single month so having an
account with us will keep you up to date it’s also great for those of you who are
in the LA area we offer free pickups right at our headquarters we also have
no minimum requirements when shipping within the U.S the third way to order
is through a decorator meaning either an on-demand print service like printful or
custom ink or a full package screen printer or embroidery shop these are all
great options especially for anyone who isn’t a printer and just wants a
one-stop shop just make sure to ask for Bella canvas to view our products that
they offer we commonly get asked what’s the best
place to buy Bella Canvas for qualified retailers is it better to buy from a
wholesaler or through bellacanvas.com as we touched on earlier if you qualify
we highly recommend going through one of our wholesale partners they are
generally your best bet because of freight incentives and have a national
reach through multiple warehouses across the country if you are looking to access
or fast fashion collection you’ll want to set up a direct account with us as
well but what if you are no qualified retailer for those of you who are on the
smaller size looking for about 200 units or less full-service printers are going
to be your best bet we recommend working with a printer who offers full package
support who can order Bella canvas products and assist with design needs
and even offer shipping in fulfillment let’s talk a bit about how to set up an
account with Bella canvas it’s easy to forget that we are a wholesale brand
because of that there are certain qualifications you need to meet in order
to set up an account with us first as if you are a decorator this includes
contract and full-service screen printers or embroiderers and means you
typically print large volume orders when approving applicants we look for
indication that you own and operate your equipment second is if you are a
distributor this includes promotional product distributors if you have an ASI
or PPI number you’ll likely qualify under this category and then finally if
you are a brand this includes licensed clothing brands with proof of website
ecommerce presence or retail location after you apply for an account on bellacanvas.com you’ll need to provide a valid a resale certificate for all
states in which you conduct business don’t have a resale license for every
state it’s different so make sure you research what qualifications your state
requires so what if you don’t fit into those
three categories and you don’t qualify for an account for an example you are a
fitness gym or Etsy shop how else can you get Bella canvas product you can get
it through any qualified apparel wholesalers such as Alfa Brodeur or SNS
contract and full-service screen printers such as shirt agency and deluxe
screen printing and then finally promotional product distributors we do
want to make it clear that we are a big supporter of small businesses even if we
can’t sell directly to you guys as we mentioned earlier it’s actually more
beneficial for you to go through a full-service screen printer so you can
get that full package support meaning they will be able to help you from the
ground up if you are looking for decorators in your area email [email protected] and we can send over some recommendations another question we often get is where
does bella canvas ship to will ship to anywhere in the U.S except to P.O boxes
we ship internationally only to Canada Australia New Zealand and Puerto Rico
please keep in mind all international orders must be ordered in full cases
typically a case includes 72 pieces of one style color and size looking for a
specific style we have a product locator on our website that gives you all
details you need to know about locating a specific style you can find it at the
bottom of our website under the resource tab the product locator allows you to
filter by style color and wholesaler to help you find stock that’s closest to
you cutoff time for ground shipments is 4:00
p.m. Pacific Standard Time and same day Express shipping as 2 p.m.
Pacific Standard Time typically orders can be processed within
the same day that order is placed but it really depends on how large your order
is for example our cutoff time is 4:00 p.m. but if you place a 5,000 unit order
by 3:00 p.m. the order might not be able to be picked and processed until the
next day that’s why we usually allow for one to two business days for orders to
fully process FedEx is our carrier of choice but feel free to provide your
preferred carrier acount number at checkout so that covers our list of
frequently asked questions if you have any additional questions that we didn’t
cover in this video please feel free to leave them in the comments below if you

  1. Do you guys sell Bella Canvas in EU ? I can't find it in Bulgaria. Can you guide me to where to purchase it in Europe ?

  2. Super informative video. Thank you guys for making this. I just wish it were easier for small businesses in the islands to purchase your shirts. We'd love to get everything directly from your warehouse because a big majority of your wholesale partners have stock issues and are usually out of certain sizes and sometimes don't carry a specific style at all. Totally not a dealbreaker though. We still want to use your shirts!

  3. How about united Arab Emirates, there is a distributor listed on your website. But after asking them they said they don't have Bella + Canvas t shirts.

  4. We usually buy through alphabroder for our print shop in Maryland.

    Keep up the great work with these videos. It's so appreciated!

  5. We have just added many Bella+Canvas products for customization on our site! It's such a great product, our customers love it.

  6. I'm from Kerala state,India. Is there any distributors in India? We would like to build a clothing brand with bella canvas. Is it possible??

  7. If I have an Etsy shop, am I able to buy from amazon or jiffy shirts or would I still need the license? I’d be putting designs on the shirts to sell on Etsy. Just want to make sure I’m doing everything correctly and legally, haha. Thank you!

  8. I love Bella+Canvas products. I have a home based business and I'm building my brand online. I purchase my pieces through SanMar or TSC. I do have my resale license . 💕🙏🏼

  9. I have my seller's permit and EIN number. I have your catalog but where or how do I get the prices for the items I want to purchase? Thank you.

  10. Hi
    I want to start a t shirt brand and I want to use your t shirt. Must I have a Reseal license to Bye your product? If the answer is yes how can I get a resell license?

  11. Love this although Puerto Rico shouldnt have been included in international, technically since they are US citizens.

  12. I qualify on every aspect for my online brand, but I do not have a resellers certificate because in my state it isn't required. I am a legal business i have my ein, my business license and my llc, but i can't seem to get a wholesale account with bella canvas.
