Garments are not like other products that are made by machines. Shirts, sweaters, hoodies, etc, are all sewn together by human hands and therefore each one is unique and variations in the garments may occur.

For example, two shirts of the same size, may actually be cut and sewn differently causing a slight variations in actual size of approximately +/- 1 inch different from the measurement in the size chart. Our manufacturer inspects each shirt for obvious variations and/or defects, but sometimes issues slip may slip through. If you receive any garments that you are not 100% satisfied with, please send us a photograph of the issue and we will work with you to correct the problem.

Our product images are mockups and the final product may contain a slight variation in the t-shirt color or printed design than the shade that appears on your screen.

We have provided size charts for each product with specific measurements for each garment. To find your perfect fit, choose one of your t-shirts that fits you well and lay it flat on a table. Measure (in inches) the height and width of the shirt, then choose the closest size in the size chart. 

IMPORTANT: Always check garment measurements carefully! Don’t just order your usual size by habit. Sizes can vary greatly between different manufacturers. If in doubt, contact us for assistance! If you can’t find a suitable size please contact us as we may be able to provide the same design on a different style of shirt to accomodate your request.

 

WHAT IS A SIZE TOLERANCE?
A size tolerance is the allowable limit of variation in a shirt measurement. you may find that your particular garment differs slightly. It is a standard in the industry that garments sizes have something called tolerance. This means that your garment may be approximately +/- 1 inch different from the measurement in the size chart.

In traditional made-to-sell retail stores, products are made in large quantities and often exceed market demand. Around 85% of all textiles produced by the fashion industry end up in landfills, making it a major contributor to environmental damage. Fast fashion uses advertising hype and low-pricing to deliver frequent new looks inspired by catwalk or celebrity styles. The pressure to reduce cost and production time means fast fashion has a huge negative environmental impact in terms of water pollution, the use of toxic chemicals and increasing levels of textile waste. In fact, textile dyeing is the second largest polluter of clean water globally, after agriculture.

Sustainable fashion is the future! We are passionate about protecting the environment and we pride ourselves on being part of the sustainable fashion movement.

Each product you see in our catalog is custom printed to your specifications—once you place an order, we produce it specifically for you. This allows us to avoid overproduction and textile waste.

Most of our clothing is printed with the direct-to-garment (DTG) printing method. The printing tech we use is made with sustainability in mind, and our DTG printers use almost zero wastewater and less energy. The inks we use for printing are water-based and free of harmful chemicals.

We warehouse only the products customers actually want and don’t throw our leftover stock into landfills. We also donate any products with small faults to local charities.

How To Extend The Life Of Your T-Shirt

Turn garment inside out and machine wash on gentle cycle ‐ cold water
Use mild or standard washing powder only
Fabric softeners and dry cleaning are not recommended as these may strip the coloured ink
Avoid bleach, in case of stubborn stain, use non-chlorine bleach (on unprinted areas) only when necessary.
Hang-dry works best but can be tumble-dried on a low cycle
Wash whites with whites, and darks with darks. Do not mix colours.
When it comes to ironing, use cool iron inside-out. Don’t iron the print.

If you ignore any or all of the above, your print may develop a slightly faded, vintage look faster than usual. It’s a cool look, in fact many designs use photoshop to create the vintage, faded or crackled look right from the first print.
