Product Related Questions


What size do I order?

The basic size chart is located in each product description.  You can also find more detailed information on our size chart page.  The best way to find your size is to measure your favorite t-shirt.  

Width: Measured across the garment one inch below the armholes.

Length: Measured from neck trim down to the bottom of the garment.




How is your apparel printed?

All of our tees are printed using top of the line water based inks. This process makes for an extremely comfortable print, as the ink is absorbed into the fabric rather than sitting on top of it. Once you wash your garment for the first time, the ink will completely set into the fabric. 


Does your apparel shrink?

All of our apparel contains cotton, and cotton will shrink.  Our cotton 100% cotton tees are preshrunk, but you can expect some additional shrinkage.  If you plan on washing/drying your garments frequently, our shirts will shrink between 3-5%. If you do not want your product to shrink -  we recommend washing in cold water and hang drying them only.
