Do you have another one of (this)? / Does this come in a different size?

99% of the items you see here are going to be a vintage piece that we have used as a canvas for our printing. So once it's gone it's gone forever.

Due to the nature of our shop sometimes things come back around but we can't make any promises as our stock is always changing

However, we have added customizable listings options to the shop, so that you can build your own shirt and maybe recreate the one that got away.

Care instructions

All of our printing is done with heat application vinyl, and is double pressed to insure its durability. With vintage garments a lot of factors can play into the longevity of the print, but your print should last for multiple washes and wear.

A couple key points about caring for your one of a kind item:

1. Wash the item inside out and in cold water. Hand washing is optional but try to avoid causing abrasion to the print, don't scrub the print against each other.

2. Hang your item to dry, avoid putting your item in the dryer. Because heat is used to apply the print, heat can shorten the life span of the print

The print is peeling off! Can it be fixed? What should I do?

If you follow the washing instructions your print should not peel off.

However depending on so many factors of vintage garments, prints don't always adhere to one fabric the same as another.

If you notice that your print is lifting somewhere just do the following:

- Heat your home iron to its hottest setting

- Cover the area that is peeling with parchment paper.

- Using your iron, apply pressure to the area that is lifting and smooth down the lifting edges. Do this 13 seconds at a time to avoid burning your garment. You may need to go over the spot several times.


Sales Tax

For Canadian customers we charge the tax rate that is applicable within your province.

Any customers outside of Canada will not be charged tax on their order.

Marking a package as "Gift" to avoid import fees + duties.

We understand that some countries have very high import taxes and duties, and customers may wish to have their package marked as a gift to avoid these charges.

However, it's actually illegal for us to mark your "sale" as a gift - it's considered falsifying customs declaration. So we will have to decline any requests to send your package as a "gift"
