It’s true that we make and sell t-shirts. Also polos, tank tops, fleece, jackets…you get the idea. But what we’re really doing is making
meaningful connections that elevate lives.
When you put on your favorite shirt you become a part of something: a club, a team, a school, a company or a movement. This creates a connection that brings people together – not just the people around you but also the people who made that shirt you’re wearing, the person who placed the logo on it and the communities that support them.
These connections reach beyond our employees, partners and customers. They impact organizations, individuals and the world we all live in,
and extend back more than 50 years to a business philosophy that has held true since day one.
This is Personal
SanMar has been doing business this way since Marty Lott launched the company from the basement of a Seattle office building in 1971. Back then he had a simple mission: Be Nice and Tell the Truth. As a family-owned business, those values are just as important today as they were then.
We work together with screenprinters, embroiderers, athletic dealers and promotional companies to tell countless stories through apparel. We’ve seen over the years how what we do matters in the lives of others, from those who make our products to those who wear them.
This is Togetherness
Whether you work for SanMar or with us, you’re here because you’re a part of this story too. Grab your favorite shirt and get comfortable.
We will create this story together.
