ChiTownBoutique's Shop Announcement

Due to the recent slowdown of the U.S Post Office it is taking longer and longer for packages to be delivered. This is completely out of my control. I am shipping within 24-48 hours on most orders to try to compensate for their lack of processing, but they are still sitting at the Carol Stream Post Office for 5-8 days before being sent on. It is unfair to all Internet Customers and Companies and I am truly sorry for the delays.

It could take up to 10 days before an order is shipped if sizes are out of stock. MOST orders will ship within 5 days (business days only) PLEASE MEASURE SHIRTS BEFORE ORDERING. My Girls & Boys T-Shirts run a bit large so do NOT order up. My Raglans run SMALL so PLEASE order up.

Priority shipping will ONLY get your order through the postal system faster, I still need time to print your items. ALL items are printed in the order they arrive. Nothing is ready to ship.


CONTACT through ETSY Message system ONLY

PLEASE, PLEASE,PLEASE do NOT order before reading the listing, checking the sizing and being certain you ordered the style you want, T-Shirt, Tank Top, Baby Bodysuit.
PLEASE MAKE SURE THAT YOU SELECTED THE RIGHT STYLE BEFORE CHECKING OUT. The Photo in the Listing is NOT the style you will get, if the photo is a tank top and you selected a t-shirt, you will get a t-shirt not a tank.

IMPORTANT: By placing your order you agree that you have read and understood the listing and policies.

I DO NOT accept returns if you order the wrong size, style or did not specify a hair,eye color, etc.. Please measure a shirt that fits and please ask for help if you have any questions on sizing. I promise to work with you and get the perfect fit:-)

*PLEASE READ and CHECK the measurements BEFORE ordering. Sizes are different on every item. To get the best fit measure a shirt you currently own that fits great. Lay the shirt flat and measure from just under the armhole to the other for the chest/ width (front side only, do not flip shirt over). Then measure from the top at the shoulder seam to the bottom of the hem for the length. COMPARE to the measurements in the listing and be sure it is for the correct item, t-shirt, tank top, etc.

If you are not happy with your shirts for other reasons, PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE leaving unfair feedback. You are NEVER stuck with something that you do not like, I will be happy to take it back & issue a full refund, or replace the items.

CHECK your order to be CERTAIN you ordered the right style and size:
I DO NOT accept returns if you order the wrong size, style or did not specify a hair,eye color, etc..PLEASE understand that I print ONLY when you order, I do not have pre made stock.
*PLEASE make sure that you selected the right style BEFORE checking out, if you order a t-shirt but wanted a tank, I will send a t-shirt because that is what is on the order. DO NOT ASSUME THE PHOTO STYLE IS WHAT YOU ORDERED. If it shows a Tank and you ordered a t-shirt...You will get the T-Shirt NOT the Tank pictured.

* I am so sorry to repeat this but I cannot stress this enough…I do not accept ANY rush orders so please do not order first and then add in a note that if it is not sent by a specific date to cancel the order.

*PLEASE note that every computer monitor and cell phone will show colors differently, if in doubt ask. Side note: Navy Blue is not the same as Royal Blue or Cobalt Blue. If you are trying to match a Navy blue item, it is one of the most difficult colors to match since the shades vary tremendously. Please type in the box marked Note to Seller if you prefer a lighter or darker shade, or include a photo. I will do my best to get it as close as possible.

*The picture of the item is NOT the style ordered, if the photo shows a tank. Please do not assume you will receive a tank. You must SELECT the STYLE you need such as a girls t-shirt, boys t-shirt, tank top, one piece baby bodysuit, etc.

Hair and eye color options must be selected when ordering, if the option does not show PLEASE TYPE IN THE COLORS YOU PREFER if nothing is noted you will be sent the image shown in the FIRST photo of the listing.

*Orders are delayed if ANY information is missing such as size, style, color, etc. CHECK ALL INFORMATION BEFORE CHECKING OUT. Be sure that the size you ordered is correct, that you selected a T-Shirt and not a Tank if that is what you wanted. If options are not showing on your phone then please type in the size and style in the box marked NOTE TO SELLER at checkout. Messaging me AFTER you have already ordered could result in delayed printing and shipping.

If the order is a gift please write the sentiments you would like written on the gift card that I am happy to enclose no extra charge.

**** Orders are delayed if it is a bank/postal holiday. I ONLY ship Monday –Thursday***

* I ONLY exchange messaging through Etsy so PLEASE check your Etsy mailbox for any messages that could delay your order, do not send messages to my personal email as I do not check it every day. Please, Please, Please note that I ONLY answer
emails in the evening. I am busy printing, packaging and shipping orders all day.

*No exchanges or refunds if you order the wrong size or style;* PLEASE read the listing description for information before emailing and measure a shirt that fits you or your child BEFORE ordering. Compare the measurements to the sizes in the listing.

*If you are ordering from a cell phone you may not see size and other options, please type in the size, style, etc. in the box marked Note to Seller at checkout if you do not see the option menu. Emailing the details AFTER you place the order could cause a processing delay up to 14 days. I am ALWAYS happy to help with sizing, so please message me before checking out and I promise to work with you for the perfect fit.

* International orders can take up to 12 weeks, Postal delays local and International are out of my hands, I am very sorry if your package has left here and the postal system has not updated the tracking in their system, please understand that I have no control over that. I’m just as frustrated as you when that happens. The tracking number is sent to you when your item(s) ship, allow at least 24 hours for the post office to update it in their system.

INTERNATIONAL ORDERS: It is against U.S laws to mark your package as a gift to avoid paying VAT taxes or fees. Please be aware of the declared value amount for your country before ordering. I am not responsible for any fees that customs may charge you.
I am very sorry but This is non negotiable

ALL WHOLESALE ACCOUNTS are currently on hold, I'm sorry but I can not fill Wholesale orders and am not accepting new accounts at this time. I am in the process of expanding to start again, but at this time it is not possible. I will never take on any new business if I cannot give it my best. Please bear with me...It REALLY is getting better I swear!!! :-)

I do not sell images, please do a search here on Etsy for Downloadable images, there are thousands of great shops that do sell great vintage images.

PLEASE NOTE: It takes time to customize a design; therefore there is an additional charge of $5.00 per design for the artwork changes if it consists of time consuming alterations. These changes include: Complete Color changes to the designs images including dresses, shoes, items, etc.
Minor changes are always welcome at no extra charge :-) including personalization. and adding lettering.

New artwork or complete change requires a non refundable $50.00 artwork fee to begin the project.

Please send ALL email and questions to my etsy account, it is the only one that is checked throughout the day. My personal email is only checked once a week. ALL messages will be sent from my Etsy account as well, so PLEASE check your messages after ordering in case there are any questions.

Q: Are your shirts, Tanks, etc True to size?

A: Every manufacturer has their own idea of sizes and everyone's idea of True to Size is different.

My Girls & Boys T-Shirts tend to run a bit on the larger side so please read the measurements very carefully before ordering.

SIZE CHARTS: PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE Measure a shirt that fits and compare to the sizing specs in listings, if you are still unsure send them to me. It only takes a minute to measure and assures the best fit for you or your child.

PLEASE Check the size charts below for the best fit. I print everything to order and cannot accept exchanges if you order the wrong size. I will be happy to help you find the perfect fit if you have any questions :-) Every listing has a size menu to select from, PLEASE check to be sure that you ordered the correct size as well as the style, bodysuit, tank top, or t-shirt.

**I have three different tank top brands and all have different sizing specs, so PLEASE do not assume that the T-Shirt and Tank top measurements are the same. They are not.

Q: Are your shirts Iron ons?
A: No! No! No!

Q: Are they machine washable?
A. Yes! Easy care, Machine wash, tumble dry low heat. My items are 100% cotton and can be expected to shrink 3% at the most if dried in the dryer. To avoid any shrinkage, wash in cool water and lay flat to dry.

For Ladies Tank Tops: Please machine wash gentle cycle or hand wash. Lay flat to dry to avoid shrinking.

Q; Will the design peel off?
A: No! They are not iron on transfers therefore they will not peel, flake or lift off. My designs are PRINTED on the shirts. The results are soft permanent images that are now part of the shirt.
