Shipping and Returns
We pick, pack & ship your order after we receive credit card authorization and verification. Orders are shipped on business days only. Business days are Monday through Friday, excluding US federal holidays. Apparel is made to order. In most cases, orders ship within 5-10 business days of the day the order is placed. Should the shirt you ordered be out of stock this may delay your shirt delivery. We will reach out to you with our production estimate so you can decide if that timeframe is acceptable or if you would be willing to consider an alternate shirt style/color. You will receive a shipping notification and tracking information as soon as your order has shipped.
