FAQs

Are your products sweatshop free? 

YES - All of our products are sweatshop free & all of our products are printed in NC or LA. Some of our products are sourced internationally, although we ensure that we support sweatshop free facilities with fair & safe working conditions. 

 

Are your products made out of ethical materials?

YES - we strive to use 100% cotton materials. Some items may include a cotton blend, but we are doing the best we can to exclusively offer bio-degradable materials.

 

 Is your printing eco-friendly?

Again, YES. Since we are a store that loves our planet, we are trying as hard as possible to minimize waste & promote sustainable practices! Inks used on the majority of our clothing are water-based. They are compliant with the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act & are Oeko-Tex™ certified, which means that they are safe to print on children's clothing & reduce environmental waste. Meeting this standard ensures that our textile practices are socially and ethically responsible, from the beginning of the raw material harvesting phase to the completion of the end product.

 

Is your packaging Eco-Friendly?

We try our best to source eco-friendly materials for our packaging and to minimize the packaging waste and are working on alternative solutions that support our manufacturing processes. All of our packaging is recyclable & biodegradable, although we always recommend reuse of bags. 

 

How should I wash my garments?

Please be wary of washing and drying on a high setting, especially when the garment is 100% cotton, like most of ours. High-temperature washes can fade and crack the print, and high-temperature dryer settings can shrink the garment, as well as damage the print. 

In order for you to prolong the life of your shirt, we suggest machine wash cold, inside-out, gentle cycle with mild detergent and similar colors. Use non-chlorine bleach, only when necessary. No fabric softeners. Tumble dry low, or hang-dry for longest life. Cool iron inside-out if necessary. Do not iron decoration. Do not dry clean.

 

How long will it take for my order to arrive?

Standard fulfillment time is 2-7 business days. Shipping is 1-8 business days.

 

Do you ship internationally?

YES - we do. The only countries we can not ship to at the moment are Cuba, North Korea & Iran, due to our manufacturer. We are hoping to deliver to these locations soon!

 

Do I have to pay customs if I ordered a shirt and live outside of the U.S.?

Yes, you might have to pay customs fees depending on your countries laws. It is outside of our control unfortunately. We can not mark any orders as gifts or undervalue the item.

 

What are your fulfillment and shipping times for international orders?

It may take anywhere from 2-7 business days to fulfill an order, although our most common/average fulfillment time is 3 days. Shipping times are anywhere from 10-20 business days depending on your location.
