About

From Sidewalk Stencils to Water Based Screen Printing

After a cross country search for something different than humidity, skeeters, gators and kudzu, I landed in Los Angeles, found a job and a roach infested apartment. Whilst working this unfulfilling job, I began to take my art to the street. And the sidewalks.

After many requests for these stencils as shirts, I started spraying them on American Apparel tees and so began my Press & Stitchery.

With the theft of my bike, my lovely little car, my naivety, and anything not bolted down, I decided to leave the city and head north. The money I saved in rent paid for my screen printing press and I took to printing full time. I started my Etsy shop, taking part time jobs until 2010. Now, I am fully sustained with Etsy orders and the many boutiques that carry my wares across the country.

Steering clear of sweatshops, I print my American Apparel shirts with eco friendly water based ink using traditional methods to ensure fair wages for workers and comfort for you body and conscience. Over the years, I have listened to customers and now accommodate other brands and items, but I always strive for social responsibility in my offerings.

It's been a long and trying journey, but fulfilling throughout. I love running into strangers wearing my shirts, ties and cardigans. I love the people who come to craft fairs just for my booth. And I love supporting myself with art.

Payment
Etsy Direct Checkout, Paypal, money order, well-concealed cash through the mail, and trade are all welcome payments.

I will hold your item until your payment clears.
Shipping
GENERAL

All shipping prices listed are for USPS Mail service.

I can ship your package UPS, FedEx, DHL, etc. if you would like. Please convo me for an estimate.

-----------

DOMESTIC POSTAGE (US)

The regular price includes regular First Class shipping service and Delivery Confirmation. Shipping time is 2 - 5 business days. Since I'm in California, it takes less time for the west coast and more time to the east coast. I cannot be held responsible for lost mail. It is usually no problem, but every now and then something is lost or stolen at the doorstep. Priority Mail includes a 1-3 day shipping time, tracking, and insurance.

-----------

INTERNATIONAL POSTAGE

The regular price includes regular shipping service, often with Delivery Confirmation depending on the country. Shipping time is 6 - 10 business days depending on your location, but it is not guaranteed.
Refunds and Exchanges
CANCELATION

If you change your mind about something before I ship it, I will give you a full refund and cancel the order.

----------

EXCHANGES

I am happy to do an exchange for you. I ask that you to pay for shipping.

----------

RETURNS

If you must return an item, I will give you a refund (unless otherwise noted in the description) less shipping and 10% restocking fee.

----------

LOST or STOLEN MAIL

I cannot be held responsible for lost or stolen mail if you don't purchase the insurance. It is inexpensive. It is usually no problem, but every now and then something is lost or stolen in the mail. I can help if you buy the insurance; otherwise I cannot. Sad face.

----------

OTHER OCCURRENCES

"Return to Sender" --- "Not At This Address" --- "Bad Address" --- and others:
If the given address is incorrect or the package was not able to be delivered for another reason out of my control, and it is returned to me, I will give you two options.
1) You can repay the shipping price, and I will reship it to a corrected address.
2) You can request a refund (less shipping and 10% restocking fee).

----------

If a new circumstance occurs that is not referenced in the above policies, we can be sensible and solve the problem in the best way for both of us.
