(1) Where are all the pencils? (2) Whose turn is it to make the tea? (3) Is anybody going to Ikea because we really need some pencils? (4) Do you print on Black? (5) Can people please stop stirring their tea with the pencils because the staff at Ikea are noticing? and (6) Why have we got so many paper rulers when we only need pencils?
None of which we felt were particularly helpful, (apart from the printing on black one), so instead we decided to make a list of useful Answers so that people wouldn't need to ask Questions quite so Frequently and would be able to find out if we printed on Black.
The absolute best way to measure your shirt is to dig out your favourite most comfortable T-Shirt ever, lay it flat on a table, and measure armpit to armpit. That way you get the most comfortable fit for you.
The base colour of the shirt affects the appearance of the printed image: White gives a Crisp, Bright image, Ash a Cool, Muted image, and Natural a Warm, Vintage image.
You will notice that none of the shirt colours mentioned above is Black. We don't print onto Black.
Even if you come back and ask us again 6 months later, we still don't print onto Black.
There are technical reasons, and seriously we could write paragraphs about it and bore the pants off you...
Bottom line is; we print on White, Ash Grey and Natural and we don't print onto Black...
Not even a little bit.
Whenever possible, to help maximize the life of the printed image, Hand Washing in Warm Water is recommended.
Ideally this should be done by the light of a full moon with dew gathered by virgin pixies - but this is optional.
When a slightly more vigorous wash is required....
Turn the Garment Inside Out and wash at 40 degrees.
Hand Iron, setting at 'cotton'.
BUT BEWARE THE FIVE EVIL PRINT GOBLINS
DRY CLEAN, BOIL WASH, TUMBLE DRY,
STEAM PRESS , USE BLEACH
All these will have DISASTEROUS results on the image!
(and yes, I am shouting... I'm really, really shouting!)
After washing, the colours may appear to fade
PANIC YE NOT!
Ironing directly over the Image (setting 'cotton')
will help revitalise the colours.
(ie with the Iron in Direct Contact with the Printed Image)
Ironing Directly will not damage the Image.
Honest... No matter what your Mom tells you.
I've done it loads of times and it's almost completely bloke proof. Just don't leave the Iron on the shirt while you're off chasing the dog because it's nicked your socks... > otherwise no sweat.
And finally - Wear With Humility
Remember, not everyone has such good taste as you!
Printing: is done by Thermal Press.
The print does not have a raised plasticky texture, the inks are embedded into the fabric of the T-Shirt.
Shirt prints measure upto 27cmx19cm (approx), depending on the design proportions and the garments printable area.
We do not stock pre-printed shirts. All of our shirts are Printed To Order.
We can remove, tweak or replace text, add personalisation, change the size and position of images... print one of your own designs, or help design t-shirts for an event... Stag/Hen Nights, Fun Runs etc.
Here are some 'off-the-peg' ideas to get the ball rolling...

Made To Order: Because all of our T-Shirts are Custom Printed To Order, (we don't hold any pre-printed Tees), we can't offer an exchange/replacement if you order an incorrect Style/Size/Colour, (EU distance selling exception for Made To Order Goods). Different T-Shirt brands, (we use Gildan), have wildly differing labelling standards so its really important to make your own measurements.
So PLEASE DO take a measurement of a T-Shirt that fits you, (armpit to armpit), and compare to our sizing chart, before placing your order.
But Hey - mistakes happen, and we really want you to be chuffed as punch with your purchase so… If, in spite of all precautions,
you do make an incorrect sizing choice - we’ll meet you part way.
We’ll ask you to contribute £4.00 towards our Production Costs, plus the Cost of Shipping. We’ll also get you to destroy the Original Shirt and provide photographic evidence, (this saves you the return postage)... and we’ll send you a replacement... Just this once mind! :)
Heaven forbid but if we make a right pigs ear of your order please get in touch with us straight away, and we’ll arrange a refund or replacement along with a grovelling apology.
Afterwards the drone responsible for the error will have their diodes removed and their conducters short-circuited (again!).
You don’t mess with the Carrot.
