Just finished our latest reading shirt and had to share what my desk looks like. I’m a big fan of the new monitors. Day in the life of a designer.

About

Welcome to Keen Bee Studio

Hi there,
Keen Bee Studio started in 2015 when I designed and printed our first shirt "Word Nerd". Our goal is to create premium, positive designs for readers, teachers, librarians, and runners. Our shirt designs are usually made by special request from our librarian and teacher friends.
All of our shirts are direct-to-garment printed in a professional print shop, this means you don't have to worry about it cracking or peeling like vinyl or heat transfer. Direct-to-garment printing also uses water-based and eco-friendly inks.

And since I'm a maker who owns a small business, every time you make a purchase I do a happy dance. Really, my office-mates, two large dogs, are very used to it by now.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you find something that makes your day,
Kristi

Frequently asked questions
Return Details

I do not accept returns (full refund) of an item. BUT, I do accept size exchanges. If you receive your item and need a new size, please contact me within 5 days of receiving your item for exchange instructions. You pay for shipping the item back to me and I take care of the shipping cost to send you the new size. Items need to be shipped for a size exchange within 7 days of receiving it.

Custom orders are NOT exchangeable. Due to the personalized, made-to-order nature of custom work, I simply cannot accept these items back. If your shirt is damaged or defective in any way, please let me know as soon as possible so I can remedy it.

Sizing details

What is this whole Unisex thing? Unisex means that it can be worn by men or women. For women, it makes for a comfy fit rather than a sausage lining fit.

Fit is important to us, so we only sell shirts that we love.

How are your shirts printed?

Most of our shirts are printed professionally using DTG (Direct-to-Garment) printing which is environmentally friendly and long-lasting.

The prints are ink-based and form part of the garment rather than being printed on top, so the print feels soft and stretches with the shirt. And as long as you wash it normally the print will last as long as the garment.

DTG printing uses 100% biodegradable, water-based inks meeting the strictest industry standards.

How do I wash and dry my new favorite shirt?

We recommend that you machine wash cold, inside-out, gentle cycle with mild detergent and similar colors. Only non-chlorine bleach, when necessary. No fabric softeners. Tumble dry low, or hang-dry for longest life. Cool iron inside-out if necessary. Do not iron decoration. Do not dry clean.

Now, with that said, we've dried many of our shirts and they are just fine. But, to keep the print looking fabulous for the life of the garment we recommend drying on a low temperature.

How long does it take to get my shirt?

Our production time is 3-7 business days. Here are the shipping options that we offer and the estimated shipping time:

- Standard Shipping (3 - 5 business days)

- Express (1-3 business days)

You can choose your shipping option during checkout. Please, note that the Express is not available for P.O. Boxess.

What happens if my package is lost in the mail?

Please, make sure that the address you provide is correct.

We may ask for your help before doing that, like confirming with you that the shipping address was correct. Get in touch with your local post office to try locating the lost order.

Keep in mind that if tracking information states an order was delivered but you say you haven't received it, we won't take responsibility and reship that order. We will handle it on a case-by-case basis.
