UNISEX MODERN FIT SIZING | this shirt is moderately tapered to be a little less boxy than the old style of mass-market t-shirt.

SOFT FABRICS | This shirt is a ringspun cotton & polyester blend. It’s soft and smooth with a high thread-count, tight knit. The cotton and polyester alternating in the knit give it a heathered, speckled effect.

TOP QUALITY INKS & EQUIPMENT | We use QCM screen printing inks, manufactured in Pineville, North Carolina. These are prime quality inks – vibrant and durable, and highly crack resistant. Some of our designs are intentionally faded or cracked (see product photos), but our inks at all times “do what they’re told” by our printers. We use top of the line printing presses and ovens (to properly cure inks) made by M&R in Roselle, Illinois
SAFE CHEMISTRY | QCM has been one of the crucial forward-thinking ink manufacturers in the industry, going phthalate-free over ten years ago – way ahead of the curve. They are also CFC free and rated as carcinogen-free by the state of California
