Matman Wrestling has been proudly manufacturing high-quality wrestling gear in the USA since 1969. Unlike some manufacturers that produce gear for multiple sports, Matman specializes in wrestling. They have high standards when it comes to picking the right fabrics and cut to make your gear fit correctly and look great while you’re out on the mat. They supply a whole range of wrestling gear including stock and custom singlets, warmups, compression gear, hair caps, kneepads, headgear, shoes, fight shorts, training gear, mat tape, coaching supplies and more! Rest assured, all of their singlets, warmups and apparel are manufactured in their Tacoma, Washington plant – not outsourced to overseas contractors. This means lightning fast turnaround times on custom gear and readily available inventory on stock items. Oh and by the way, they have some of the best prices around too.
Matman stands head and shoulders above the competition in terms of customizing uniforms for your team, especially when it comes to singlets. They offer stock and custom sewn singlets, which can be screen printed on, as well as fully sublimated singlets and apparel. If you’re looking for something quick, simple, and high quality, we recommend taking a look at some of their stock singlets. If you’d like to add several logos, or have more freedom with the design and colors, sublimated singlets will probably be your best bet. Matman has several great customizable templates that you can choose from to get your design started, or we can help you create a totally new design from scratch.
Before we go any further, some people may be wondering what the difference is between sublimation and screen printing. Most people are familiar with screen printing, or silk-screening, which is what you see on most t-shirts. It’s a process by which a stencil is made of your design, and ink is heated and pressed through a special mesh and transferred onto a fabric. With singlets or compression gear, this process has to be done very carefully and with the right kind of ink so that it will be durable and stretch with the fabric. If done incorrectly, it can end up cracking or peeling. Lucky for you, the printers at Matman are pros.
With sublimation, you don’t have to worry about that. Basically, they start out with a completely white fabric, and the entire design of the singlet (or other apparel, like fight shorts and compression shirts) is dyed into the fabric, then cut and sewn. This means, there are no limits to the number of colors or logos you can throw on there because it all happens at the same time. A couple things that can change the price of a sublimated garment are logos crossing on a seam, and extra sewn-in panels or sublimated leg bands. This is because they have to do additional work to match up the artwork along the seams.
Another area of expertise that Matman has is custom warmups…that don’t cost you a fortune. Their warmups are super durable and they look awesome. Currently, the only decoration option Matman has for warmups is screen printing; they do not do any embroidery or tackle twill in-house. That said, they are some of the best screen printers in the business
One of the biggest challenges with ordering team gear, especially when you need it quickly, is waiting weeks and weeks for it to show up after you’ve ordered. Unfortunately, far too many manufacturers operate this way, making you wait as long as 6 or even 8 weeks for gear! Matman, hands down, has the fastest turnaround times on custom uniforms - they won’t leave you hanging and waiting for gear all season.
