Who we are

Avid Apparel was founded, over a decade ago, in a dorm room at Dalhousie University with an idea; to make better quality custom clothing. Several years and millions of prints later, our growing team still maintains the same mantra - great people making great clothing.

Over the last ten years we’ve experienced tremendous growth – due to our partnerships with major brands, retailers, and charitable foundations – and we’re still working hard to continuously increase our size and capabilities through new partnerships and programs.

Our super-talented team is what makes us unique. Our products are only as good as the people who make them, so we’ve built a business based on the best people for every job. With decades of experience in production, sewing, printing, manufacturing, distribution, marketing and design – the talent of our team bleeds through every stitch of cotton and drop of ink.

As an equal opportunity employer, Avid Apparel is proud to have members of all groups as a part of our team. From our production floor to our corporate head office – our team is the backbone of everything we do. Regardless of age, ethnicity, or gender;

Avid Apparel is focused on empowering our team members to grow, both personally and professionally, alongside the company. 

Avid Apparel proudly stands behind every product we make – we’re only as good as our last delivery and we’re not happy until you are. When you enter into a partnership with Avid Apparel, you become exactly that; our partner.

Your success is our success and we’re here to support you along every step of the way. While we may be a large, national clothing manufacturer – we offer a boutique level of service that is unmatched in the industry.

AVID Apparel is an incredible partner for us in our business. They are brilliant in their production capabilities, meticulous in their customer service, and incredibly efficient in their fulfillment. We rely on AVID for anything and everything and they always deliver. We're hesitant to write this review because they have been our best kept secret to date.

Launching a new Girl Guide Uniform design is not an easy task…asking for it to be done in 6 months…is *beyond* daunting. After an intense RFQ process, AVID Apparel was chosen as our Uniform Guru ! From Design, Fabric, Branding, Pricing, Sizing Samples, North American production, Finishing and Delivery AVID did not miss a beat. I have no doubt they will provide the same, undaunting support to you; as well, and I highly recommend.
