How do your shirts fit? 
They fit great! Our tees are cut for a youthful shape. Most of our garments fit a little snug to flatter almost any body type. If you're not sure what size to get or if you're in-between sizes, we recommend you order one size up. Please check the size chart located on our website to find more info on sizing. We print our shirts locally on American Apparel® and Bella® blank goods. Material information can be found on the product pages. If you have questions about sizing issues, please feel free to contact us for sizes you do not see in our inventory.

Do you carry sizes larger than 3X?
We understand that people come in all shapes and sizes.  We wish we could carry all sizes and have all sizes in stock, but we are still a small company and only have so much space in our shops and wear-house. We currently carry men's sizes XS-3XL and womens sizes S-2XL in most products. We are a small boutique company and at this time we do not manufacture our garments and like most companies like ours we are tied to blank t-shirt distributors/wholesalers and the sizes and colors they provide. 

Will my new shirts shrink after I wash them?
We print our designs on a variety of materials ranging from 100% Cotton, 50/50 polyester/cotton blend and 50/25/25 (50% Polyester / 25% Cotton / 25% Rayon) construction.  We do not offer pre-shrunk items. We recommend washing in cool water and hang dry, but that is not necessary, tumble dry on low will help prevent shrinkage.

Do you wholesale?
