Q: What is your minimum order?
A: We have an order minimum of 48 pieces.
We ask pieces be ordered in multiples of six per size per color.
Q: Do I have to order 48 of one style?
A: No. You can order whatever you'd like, we just ask that you order in multiples 6 per size per color. (For example: 6 lg black men's t's, 6 med womens's raglan in peroxide white)
Q: How do I get the price break?
A: When you order shirts by the case. A case is one case of shirts in the same size and same color. For example 60 Mens Black in Large.
Q: Do you offer a screenprinting/t-shirt package?
A: Yes. Our minimum for a package is 200 shirts.
For orders less than 200, we will put you in contact with a local screenprinter for you to work with directly. We will deliver the shirts to the screenprinter at no charge. Several environmentally responsible printing methods are available, such as digital direct to cotton and PVC and phthalate free inks.

Q: Where are they made?
A: Grown and sewn in the USA.
Q: What kind of dye do you use to dye your products?
A: We use low-impact fiber-reactive dyes. Fiber-reactive dyes are a synthetic dye that chemically bonds directly to the clothing fiber molecules. They were first used commercially in 1956. The fixation or absorption rate of low-impact dyes is at least 80%, creating less waste water runoff and therefore a lower impact on the environment. Recent advances have created fiber-reactive dyes with colors that are brighter and richer, and they provide excellent colorfast properties. They contain no heavy metals or other known toxic substances, and they meet GOTS (global organic textile standards) for organic certification requirements. But, the actual dyes in almost all low-impact fiber-reactive dyes are still made from synthetic petrochemicals.
Q: Why not natural dyes?
A: Contrary to popular opinion, natural dyes are often neither safer nor more ecologically sound than synthetic dyes. They are less permanent, more difficult to apply, wash out more easily, and often involve the use of highly toxic mordants. However, not all mordants are equally toxic, and the idea of natural dyestuffs is aesthetically pleasing. Mordants are used to “fix” or bond the dye to the fiber. Some natural dyes, such as the hematein derived from logwood, are themselves significantly poisonous. Of course, the color possibilities are far more limited than synthetic dyes.
