GENERAL INFORMATION:
Unless otherwise stated on the listing, all items are 100% preshrunk cotton in the following brands.
Tshirts- AAA Alstyle heavyweight, Gildan heavyweight, or Anvil heavyweight

WOMEN'S STYLE SHIRTS:
The women's style tees are Gildan brand. They are not fitted, however, they do have a more feminine look with shorter, slightly tapered sleeves, and a more rounded neckline than the traditional unisex tees. They are only available in short sleeves- NO long sleeves. Although they are a heavyweight tee, they are a bit lighter weight material than the classic unisex shirts I use. They are also shorter in length. (Available in Adult Small through Adult 3X.)

APPROXIMATE SIZES/MEASUREMENTS OF THE TSHIRTS AFTER PROCESSING~
*Youth shirts- Long sleeved Youth shirts run considerably larger than the short sleeved youth shirts, so be sure to measure, and consider ordering a size down.
*Toddler shirts- Customers say that my toddler shirts run small, so be sure to measure, and consider ordering a size up.
*To measure- Lay shirt flat and measure the width from armpit to armpit; measure the length down the center of the back.

WASHING INSTRUCTIONS:
Your item will be ironed and ready to wear; however, when you wash it for the first time it may loose some unattached dye. For this reason, I recommend that you wash it separately or with like colors for the first few washing. Also, be sure that it does not remain in your wash machine pressed against other wet clothing after the final spin cycle, as this will transfer dye, too. Don't worry, your item WILL eventually quit releasing unattached dye, and will remain brilliantly colored for many years.
~Items with handpainting or fabric paint- Wash inside out.
~Handwoven scarves and shawls- Delicate cycle or hand wash, and line dry
~Rayon skirts, jackets, tops, etc- Delicate cycle or hand wash (Rayon is very durable when dry, but is a bit fragile when wet!)

SHIPPING AND HANDLING
~All items ship via USPS. Stocked merchandise will be shipped within 2 days of purchase; however, items that are not in stock and need dyed will be shipped within a week of purchase.

RETURNS:
I love happy customers! Returns are accepted within 2 weeks of shipment on unworn, unused, and unwashed items. Notify me that you'll be returning a package, and I'll gladly refund the purchase price of the item(s) when the package reaches my mailbox. I do not refund the cost of shipping either way.

Again- Thank you kindly for helping me "dye" my way through college! God's blessings to you and yours~ Briar

I was looking for something to match my Grandson's soccer team colors and this shirt is perfect!! The colors are brilliant and the T-shirt is beautiful! I would definitely buy from Bri's tie dyes again.

I selected a black and orange tie dye, but seller sent a navy and orange tie dye. I ordered specific colors to match my little ones spirit days at school. Seller wanted me to send the product back at my expense for her error. Super disappointing experience!

I apologized and offered to reimburse upon the return of the tee. I do reimburse for postage, but so far it has not been returned.

About

Bri's Tie Dyes ... no end in sight!

I have been perfecting my entrepreneural skills since the ripe old age of 5, when my besties and I drew "tattoos" on paper with markers and sold them for a nickel next to the slide at the city park...10 cents if you wanted them applied with a wet paper towel. If you weren't in the market for a tattoo, we offered unnamed "things" crafted from pipe cleaners and beads, and we even took custom orders!

In elementary school I created themed "Party Boxes" full of everything one would need to throw the perfect birthday party. Later in my mid-teens I repurposed potato chip containers and left over fabric/trims into "Shake, Rattle, and Roll" sensory toys for infants. With each new entrepreneurial fling came 'hands on" experience in business management and public relations.

Six years ago, armed with a rack of 200 freshly tiedyed shirts and a handmade poster proclaiming my mission ("DYEING" TO GO TO WORLD YOUTH DAY), I set up shop at the County Fair - Bri's Tie Dyes was officially open! Sixteen years old and full of hope, I estimated that if I sold every shirt on the rack I would have enough $$ to travel with my church group to World Youth Day. When the dust from the Fair had cleared, I gathered up a handful of unsold shirts... and a LONG list of special orders! My venture was successful... and I was off to Spain! Mission completed.

... or was it? Nope, friends were still hungry for tiedye so I ordered another batch of supplies, and began "DYEING" TO GO TO COLLEGE. What once was a little "backyard business" at the picnic table (with a garden hose nearby and freshly rinsed tiedyes hanging over the fence), has consumed my parents' home on the rural plains of northeast Colorado! Tie dyeing has become an everyday event- with one batch curing on the dining room table, another batch in the wash machine, and yet another waiting to be ironed and stored! With three years of college down and 1 to go, I see no end in sight for Bri's Tie Dyes! Unlike my tattoo shop in the city park- this business is here to stay!

My Etsy Shop has been addicting, in a good way! I've "met" the nicest folks from all over the world right here on Etsy! I find it absolutely amazing that "strangers" could be so kind, generous, and encouraging to me. Even if I'd never sold a thing on this site, it would have still been a worthwhile experience. I am forever grateful and appreciative for this opportunity. Life is good!

Likewise, I am blessed to have:
1. The support of my hometown Holyoke community (now saturated in tie dye) that values its younger members;
2. A family who didn't squelch my entrepreneurial spirit (no matter how ridiculous those tattoos were), gave up the dining room and the perimeters of their bedrooms to make room for boxes of shirts, and only growled a little when I spilled the orange bucket of dye on the living room carpet;
3. My "groupies", aka Mom's day care kids (who often go home a little more colorful than they came) but who remain my biggest fans!

What do I do besides tiedye? I study Radiology Technology at Briar Cliff University. (Yes, I admit, when pressed to choose a college I randomly googled my name and found BRIAR Cliff University! I visited. It was love at first sight- but here's the rest of the story- My big brother's name is CLIFF, so maybe it was just meant to be!) I also sing in the church choir, work as a scribe at St. Luke's Hospital, lifegaurd, coach the local swim team, am a member of the Antioch team, am involved in Student Government, am a Peer Advising Leader (PAL), and am golfing on the BCU team. I also delight in spending loads of time playing with my little sisters, Lauren and Amber.

Peace, Love.... and tiedye!

God bless you all~ Briar
