We work with you to design your very own short sleeve and/or long sleeve sun shirts and handle everything from start to finish, all done at wholesale rates. You design it, we make it, you sell it. And if it's not a long sleeve sun shirt you are looking for, we also provide custom long sleeve tees, custom hats, and other products such as sun hoodies and more.

Imagine the possibilities! You can choose the fabric composition, colors, style, and even add your company logo or slogan. Our high-quality sun protective products are not only comfortable but also provide the best UV protection possible. Every fabric color we offer, 30+ colors to choose from, are individually certified for the UPF value. With our custom design option, you can now showcase your brand while keeping your team and your customers safe from the harmful rays of the sun. And as a business headquartered in New Orleans, we understand the fine balance between staying cool and staying protected - our products achieve both. While our custom long sleeve shirts provide the highest level of UV protection, they are also designed to be super lightweight and comfortable. You shouldn't have to sacrifice comfort to keep your skin protected. Our custom long sleeve sun tees are the perfect solution for staying safe and stylish in the sun. Our Crescent City collection of bamboo shirts is one of the most comfortable fabrics imaginable, while our Shoreline collection of polyester shirts is as light as a feather. So whatever you choose, you can't go wrong. You can browse our entire catalog to find the perfect custom long sleeve shirt for your needs.
