What products are Eco-Friendly?
We are committed to doing our part in making our products as easy on the environment as possible. We continue to grow our Organic line with new fabrics, styles and colors in 100% Organic Cotton, RPET, Recycled Cotton, Viscose Bamboo, Viscose Hemp & Eco-Triblend. All of our sustainable fabrics are made with Organic / Eco-Friendly yarns and finished with environmentally friendly dyes. Please click here to view all styles in our Organic line including Unisex, Ladies, Youth, Toddler & Infant styles.
What is Viscose Hemp?
The hemp fabric is an incredibly strong, durable fiber that grows quickly. Hemp clothing is great at holding its shape and will even get softer as it ages. As the saying goes; “hemp doesn’t wear out, it wears in.”
What is Viscose Bamboo?
Silky smooth and soft to the touch while being naturally hypoallergenic. The bamboo plant grows faster than any other plant, making it the most renewable. Some species of bamboo can grow up to two feet per day and many species grow even faster than that! The bamboo fabric absorbs moisture really well and because of that, requires less dye than conventional cotton.
Is your Organic Cotton certified?
Yes, all of our Organic Cotton is certified by GOTS which stands for Global Organic Textile Standard. Please click here (http://www.global-standard.org/) to see more information regarding GOTS. Please contact Customer Service for additional questions.
What is RPET?
RPET stands for Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate, or recycled PET. Our products that contain RPET yarn are made using recycled bottles. The amount of bottles per style may vary. For more information on how recycled plastic bottles are transformed into the polyester yarn we use in our RPET garments, please click here.
What makes this Cotton Organic?
We grow our cotton without pesticides, herbicides or synthetic fertilizers which can be harmful to the environment.
Is there a Royal Apparel tag in your garments or do you offer tear away options?
Yes, all styles have a Royal Apparel tag inside.
Many styles do have a tear away tag. Here is a quick link to those styles.
What are your washing instructions?
We recommend that our garments be washed in cold water and tumbled dry on low heat for best results. You will find washing instructions listed on the garment tag.
What styles do you recommend for screen printing?
All styles in our line can be used for screen printing. We always recommend printing a sample or two on our products before you proceed with a full production run.
Please note that our styles are not pre-shrunk and may shrink depending on printing process. Again, sampling first is ALWAYS recommended.
What does 30/1 mean?
30/1 (or 30 Singles) refers to the yarn count. This is the unit of measurement that defines the fineness of the thread. The higher the number, the finer the thread and thus a finer, softer fabric is created. T-shirts made of 30/1 are much softer and have a better drape than shirts made of 20/1. The terms are used several ways, i.e. 30s, 30/1 and 30 Singles. They all mean the same.
How to calculate Shrinkage?
When calculating shrinkage, you need to factor in the tolerance along with the shrinkage. Below table shows an example for the size large of style 5051.
Calculate the tolerance range for both the body length and chest specs. Calculate the 5% - 7% range of the shrinkage combined with the tolerances.
What is Tolerance?
Our garments are hand crafted. During the hand cutting and sewing of the fabric we allow a tolerance for the workers. We list our tolerances on our spec sheet which details the range the measurement can vary. We then inspect our goods to make sure they are within the tolerance.
Example below shows the "TOL" (tolerance) is 1" on the Front Body Length and 1/2" on the Chest Flat measurements.
So, for this example on size Medium¬
Spec for the Front body is 28 1/2"
Then the tolerance can range from 27 1/2" to 29 1/2" of the actual garment
Spec for Chest Flat is 20"
Then the tolerance can range from 19 1/2" to 20 1/2" of the actual garment
How can I locate a style with the RN#110691?
This number is referenced on all of our styles and is not style specific. RN#110691 is the official registration number issued to us by the Federal Trade Commission.
If you need help determining what style you need and are unable to find the style on our website, please contact Customer Service.
Are your Clearance items going to be discontinued?
Yes, these styles are only available while supplies last.
What does PFGD mean?
PFGD stands for prepared for garment dye. These garments are exactly the same color as our regular Natural, as well as, the same specs. The only difference is that these garments are sewn with cotton thread, instead of poly thread so that they can be easily garment dyed. We always recommend to test a sample before proceeding with a full production run.
