Sizing, General Info & FAQ
Print and garment quality: If you talk to any T-Shirt Whore customer, you'll quickly learn I'm renowned for the attention to quality and detail that I give to EVERY order. AND to EVERY CUSTOMER! The garments I print on are the best you will find. The prints and graphics that I hand print onto your garment are the result of a painstaking pursuit I have been on in search of creating the greatest print possible. By greatest print possible, I refer to the BOLDEST and SOFTEST prints that I can possibly achieve. With the best ink I can possibly source. Even on the darkest of garments.
Sizing: Not all shirts are equal. nor is there a "standard" sizing guideline in t-shirt, tank tops and hoodie blanks! While one brand of t-shirt blank can fit one way; another brand of t-shirt blank can fit totally different. I create fashion-forward ultra soft, high quality, tees, hoodies, raglans and tank tops. Sizing may vary slightly for different garment categories. For instance; while I do try to keep sizing consistent across garment categories - items in the tank top categories may differ slightly in sizing in comparison to the t-shirt sizing, for example. Although they WILL be very close, they can vary slightly. And I do like to experiment and offer new items as I can. So please see the clickable sizing charts that are located underneath the item descriptor on every item listing in the shop. Just look under the item descriptor for the teal font, click on it and sizing charts will pop up for you to view!
Ladies! If you prefer a looser fit than what is offered in the women's cuts, many of my female customers opt for a men's/unisex size. They will still be tapered and have a fashion fit, but they will be a bit more roomier and looser.
Garment Care: Once you've made sure your swanky new t-shirt, tank or hoodie fits, I always recommend washing and drying your shirt before your first wear as I feel it strengthens the fibers. Shrinkage should be minimal at most, but you can wash in cold water and hang dry to be safe if you wish. Always referring to the care instructions on the garment's label is your best bet. And while your water-based print is generally safe to iron, I advise not doing so. If you are ever in doubt, refer to information on the neck label of your garment.
Are your products MADE IN THE USA? Yes, I produce all of items here in Los Angeles, in my independent shop. All orders are printed in small batches, to order with my own two hands. All chemicals and inks used are enivromentally safe and all waste is disposed of in an environmentally safe manner. And unlike the plastisol inks that many other shirt makers use, my inks also contain no harsh solvents, heavy metals, petroleums, plastics, pvc, or other nasty stuff. Who wants that stuff sitting on your skin? Not me!!!

Do you do custom orders? Retail? Wholesale? I will sometimes do custom orders as long as minimums are met (50 piece minimum). I do also offer some sales to retail merchants, however I am very cautious and picky about whom I will work with, how my product will be represented, sold, promoted and most importantly, how the CUSTOMER'S end experience with any retail merchant will be. Please use the contact form and we can discuss the details.
If I order one t-shirt, tank or hoodie, can you change the design on my tee, or customize it? Put my name on it? Etc. : Sorry this is not possible. While I do print to order in batches, I use old school, by hand, screen printing methods. This ensures the best quality possible. However once screens are made for a design, they cannot be changed. You can have custom orders made if you order a minimum of 50 pieces though.
Can you change the print color and/or shirt color if I order one t-shirt, tank or hoodie? Sometimes. Usually not, but sometimes. And it never hurts to ask in this case! Who knows? You might give me an idea I had never thought of!!!
