Made with Care in MN

Why Custom Apparel Made in Minnesota?

All of our products are made in our St. Paul, Minnesota facility. This simple fact means a great deal to all of us here at Podiumwear. In an era when the vast majority of apparel is made in large factories overseas, we have made it a priority to keep our production at home. There are two main reasons for this:

1. We care a great deal about our community.

Keeping production local means keeping production green. A lower carbon footprint is good for the planet  good for our community. In addition, It is a priority for us to give the many jobs involved in transferring, cutting, sewing, and packaging our goods to the people of our own community rather than sending those jobs overseas.

2. We care about our clients.

Producing highly technical custom sublimated apparel is as complicated as it gets.

We create product patterns that function at the highest levels of competition, source fabrics and trims that overcome the toughest conditions, work with clients to bring their unique design ideas to life, then print, transfer, cut and sew each piece to the highest standards.

At the same time, we have to be flexible enough to produce small batches of different designs on a continuous basis. To pull this off, every step of our production needs substantial oversight.

We believe this can only be accomplished in a workshop environment where everyone has a hand in the end product. This level of craftsmanship is rare. What it means for you is that you will receive the very best product we can possibly offer in the least amount of time.
