Frequently Asked Questions

How long should it take to get my order?

Shirt printing and fulfillment is taken care of by Spreadshirt. They typically ship within two to three working days of you placing your order. If you have questions about an order that has already been placed, then you need to contact them at service@spreadshirt.com. Also, be sure to look around the internet for Spreadshirt coupons before placing your order. Often you can get discounts like free shipping depending on the size of your purchase.

Books, posters, and bookmarks are taken care of by us and shipped within five working days of the order. Shipping times depend on your location, but usually within three to five days within the United States, and seven to ten days for international orders.

Are these shirts digital transfers like at Cafe Press?

No, no, absolutely not! My shirts use a much nicer printing method known as plot printing. Cafe Press uses digital transfers to convert bitmaps into designs that are pressed onto the shirts. These have a reputation of fading and being less durable. Spreadshirt allows me to use their crazy machines to apply highly durable, richly colored inks onto fabric in vector based designs.

What kinds of shirts do you use?

Most designs are available on both standard weight and heavyweight shirts. The standard weight shirts are made by Gildan. Here's sizing information for men's and women's shirts. The heavyweight shirts are made by American Apparel. They are softer, more durable, and use a slimmer, more trendy cut. Here's sizing information for men's and women's shirts.

Personally, I prefer the heavyweight shirts because I find them much more comfortable. But since many people like lightweight shirts at lower prices, both options are available.

What payment methods do you accept?

We accept most major credit cards as well as PayPal.

But what if I don't have a credit card?

That's fine. Send us an e-mail and we'll give you information for sending a check or money order. Just know that it will take a little longer for you to get your order in this case.

I love your books or shirts and would like to carry them at my store.

Thanks! We'd love to have you sell our merchandise. Send us an e-mail and we can work a deal out for you at bulk wholesale rates.

Also, with our shirt setup it is easy for us to add more styles and colors. So if you have any specific requests, don't hesitate to ask.
