Can I track my order?

Orders over 2 ounces can be tracked within the US.  When your order is packed and ready to go, you will receive an email with a tracking number.   Once you receive that tracking number, your package is ready for the postal pick-up.  Tracking will begin once the postal service make the initial scan.   The postal service picks up packages Monday - Friday, excluding holidays.

It can take up to 36 hours to appear in the tracking system.  You can track your order on the USPS web site. Please note that international orders are only tracked within the US. After it leaves the US, it becomes the property of the regional postal system and is no longer tracked by the USPS.

Once your package leaves our warehouse, we no longer have control over it. We cannot change the address or redirect it to another address.   If we ship your package to the address you provided and it is returned, we will issue a credit for the product price less a 15% restocking fee.  Shipping is non-refundable.   

How long will it take to receive my order?

We use USPS for shipping all our packages. General delivery times are:

USPS Priority Mail: 1-4 business days after ship date, depending on region. Tracking information is available.  This is an estimated delivery time, not a guaranteed delivery.

USPS Express Mail: 1 - 2 business days after ship date, depending on region.  Tracking information is available.  


USPS First Class International: 2-8 weeks after ship date. Most international orders are delivered in 10 - 21 days.  Detailed tracking information is not offered with this service.  Tracking is only within the US. 

The international ship times vary greatly by region.  During non-peak seasons, most Canadian orders are received within 10 days, while some remote international locations may take up to 8 weeks. Please be aware that we are not responsible for lost, stolen or misdirected packages.

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.


What is the quality of your apparel?

We print on high-quality apparel made of one of the following: 100% ringspun cotton, poly/cotton mix, poly/cotton/viscose, or tri-blend fabric.

Does your apparel shrink?

If you plan on washing/drying your garments frequently, our shirts will shrink between 3-5%. If you do not want your products to shrink -  we recommend washing your products in cold water and hang drying them only.
