How much will shipping cost me?
Shipping costs vary and are determined by the amount purchased and where they are being shipped to. To determine the exact amount for shipping feel free to proceed to the checkout process, enter the shipping information and shipping costs will be displayed.

Why do some shirts cost more?
Shirts cost different amounts based on the cost of production. Some shirts cost more because they have more elaborate screen-printing. Fair trade and organics also cost more. Some shirts have all their profits go to a particular group or cause. These shirts are priced in such a way as to give a significant amount to that group.

Why do you say you promote fair trade or sweatshop free apparel but not all of your shirts are sweatshop free or fair trade?
Currently, all of our shirts are organic, but not all are sweatshop free or fair trade. It is our desire and goal to move to a complete line of organic, sweatshop free, and fair trade clothing. However, it has been hard to find reliable producers of quality clothing that meet these requirements (even with months of research). Weve found a couple companies that are promising and we will begin to carry their clothes and see how they wear (and sell for that matter). Our eventual goal is to have our own label of clothing that meets all of these standards.

Can I pick up my order?
Sorry, but we dont have an office location set up for order pick up.

Can I order over the phone?
As of right now we are not taking phone orders. Hopefully that will change as we grow.

Im an overseas costumer. Will you ship to me?
Were sorry. At this time we are only shipping to US and Canadian customers.

Can I add another shirt to my order?
Once you click Purchase, your order cannot be changed. Please make sure to verify your order during the checkout process. Of course you can make additional orders if you forgot something.

How do the shirts fit?
Our various shirts fit differently, depending on the make. Our womens shirts are fitted and run small. Be forewarned. Our mens shirts come from a variety of producers. Some run quite large, like the Lift your conscience shirt and the Let girls fly a kite, the others are more fitted. Check to see the shirts description for sizing information.

How do I care for the shirts?
Very gently. Shirts are sensitive and want to know that you care about them. OK, but seriously, our shirts are made from a variety of materials and have different care instructions. Check the tag and follow the directions.

Did you know that you misspelled tambourine on the Arm the People shirt?
Yep. Its true. But, most people (even really good spellers) dont know how tambourine is spelled. So, were hoping most people will not notice.

Do you sell in my area?
We are currently not selling in local stores, but if and when we do, well post a list of locations here.

Do you offer wholesale?
Currently we do not offer wholesale.

Do you make shirts to order? Would you print shirts for my organization?
Sorry. We dont offer that as an option at this time.
