Where can I find someone to dye my clothing for me?

There are few businesses willing to do custom dyeing-to-order these days. You will probably not be able to find a local dyer or dry cleaner willing to redye your clothing for you, but you can mail it to one of the five dyeing services listed in the topmost box, below.

If your garment is 100% polyester, you should probably just forget it. Few dyers are willing to dye it for you. Polyester is difficult and unpleasant to immersion-dye a single solid color, and the customer is often unwilling to pay the cost of the materials and effort—or the risk that the garment will be destroyed by the extended boiling required.

There are two types of custom dyers listed here: those who will redye your premade garment a different color, and those who will custom dye a new garment to your specifications.

The following companies or individuals have registered their contact information as given below....

Garment Redyers: changing the color of clothing you already have
