Entripy's story began in 1999 when founder Jas Brar was a student at the University of Toronto. When a group of classmates went searching for custom t-shirts for campus events and organizations, Jas identified a gap in the market for quality custom apparel and excellent customer service. An entrepreneur at heart, Jas began buying t-shirts wholesale, embellishing them through a third party and selling them back to fellow students.
But relying on a third-party embellisher meant Jas was struggling to meet short deadlines. In order to fulfill clients orders faster, Jas purchased a manual press and started doing his own screen printing for custom clothing out of his parents' basement in Oakville, Ontario. His parents owned a pizza store and a delivery van, which Jas was famous for driving around to deliver custom t-shirt orders instead of pizzas.
Entripy eventually grew out of the basement and began incorporating new software and machinery for embroidering, digital printing and screen printing. Today, Entripy Custom Clothing operates out of a state-of-the-art 30,000 square foot facility in Oakville, Ontario. Our in-house production allows customers to buy direct, fulfilling Jas' vision of a company that provides quality products at low prices and a fast turnaround time.
Entripy's rapid growth earned us a spot in Profit Magazine's 100 Fastest Growing Companies in Canada. Along with this accomplishment, Jas was also rewarded with the Ernst & Young esteemed Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
