TidyMerch: Transforming apparel ecommerce with sustainable growth

How a global apparel producer saves 40% on raw materials and 15-20% on logistics

Charlie Saunders’, the CEO behind TidyMerch, had an upbringing steeped in the music industry and fueled by a passion for sports. This interest sparked the realization of the untapped potential in on-demand apparel printing. TidyMerch is based in Stockholm, Sweden. Born out of a love for apparel,TidyMerch embarked on a mission to redefine the ecommerce landscape.

Leading apparel provider for pop culture

Founded in 2018, TidyMerch has its roots in the music and sports industry, catering to renowned acts like Purple, 50 Cent, and Justin Bieber, as well as sports clubs like Hammerby.

Since integrating with GelatoConnect, TidyMerch has experienced remarkable growth and optimization across its operations. The successes are in part to the organizations’ tight collaboration. "It almost feels like sometimes that I work for Gelato and sometimes that Gelato works for me. That's how close we are in that way, said Charlie."

Production and logistics challenges prevent scale

Before partnering with GelatoConnect, TidyMerch faced significant challenges in its production and logistics processes. "We used to buy a mug for 14 Krona and now purchase it at under 8 Krona, a 40% saving,” said Charlie “But this led us to shift because now we need to focus more on volume as well."
