Custom Ink is shrinking its manufacturing footprint and cutting payroll.

The custom apparel maker will close its production facilities in Charlottesville, Virginia, and Reno, Nevada, a move that will affect a combined 338 workers, the Reno Gazette Journal reports.

“Due to rising costs and increasingly tight markets for production talent, Custom Ink has decided to close our production sites in Reno, Nevada and Charlottesville, Virginia and consolidate in-house production in our Dallas, Texas facility,” the company told the outlet.
