About SharksBitesOfLife

On Etsy since 2013

Handmade screen printed custom high quality athleisure wear for men and women!

Designing has always been my passion and so has fitness, the idea of combining the two into my own business was one of the best decisions I ever made! I started Shark's Bites of Life in April of 2013 out of our 2 bedroom apartment. I took over the entire spare bedroom with my inks, screens and screen printing supplies. I had my work desk in the kitchen (instead of a kitchen table). It was a little difficult when we had guests over, I found myself trying to fit my work and family/friends into one room.

When my husband was transferred to a new location we decided to upgrade to a 3 bedroom apartment so I could have a separate office from our guest room, best decision ever! As of January 2015 I have been solely running Shark's Bites of Life without another source of income. It was a risk I was willing to take so I could stay on top of my vision for SBOL.

I plan to greatly expand my designs and apparel this upcoming year, now being able to give it all of my attention and time. Seeing people wearing SBOL at the gym, grocery store, and in social media posts makes my day, I instantly get a smile on my face and feel joy. Creating quality products that I love to wear and share with others keeps me motivated. It MAKES MY DAY every time I get a message or feedback from someone telling me how much they love their new tank or new sweatshirt.

My plan is to eventually get to a point where I am able to afford to create the garment patterns and pick the fabrics used for custom Shark's Bites of Life apparel.

Hi there!!! Thank you for viewing my shop, please feel free to call me Shark;)
I live a very active, healthy lifestyle. I love creating unique and funny sayings that are true to me and make people laugh or spark up conversation. I've been featured in Pop Sugar and on Buzz Feed for my eat fat get lean and abs shirt designs.

My background is in graphic design and typography. If I wasn't a designer I would want to be in the fitness and nutrition industry, so I like that I can design fun workout clothing and combine my passions.

Shipping

I will always ship to the address provided through Etsy at checkout so please make sure you entered in your full address. If you have a quick change please message me right away with the correct place to send your shirts, or leave a note on your order!

** US orders: I ship USPS with Delivery Confirmation and tracking. Everything under 1 pound is shipped first-class mail which is 2-5 day delivery, and everything over 1 pound ships Priority Mail, which is 2-3 day delivery.

You will receive an email when your order is shipped along with your tracking number.


*** International orders: International shipping can be extremely slow. Delivery times range from 10 days to an entire month (or longer in some cases). The average is about two and a half weeks but it is not unusual for it to take longer. Please take this into account before you order, so that you are not disappointed if your package take longer than you'd like it to arrive. Tracking information is not always available once it leaves the United States, if you see the item is still in the US when shipping to your country it most likely means that is the last place it was before it left the US.

I always weigh my packages and send them with the correct postage,
Once the package leaves the US, I have no control over how your country handles the package.

***** IF YOUR COUNTRY HAS A CUSTOMS CHARGE THEN THE RESPONSIBLE PARTY IS THE BUYER TO COVER THE COSTS.
If you have questions on this please let me know.
**Also, remember to claim your package if left at the postal center. You can keep an eye on your package through your shipping tracking numbers I send in an email and can also be found on your order invoice. If a package is returned to me because it was not claimed I will have to charge another shipping fee to send the package again.

If you would like to receive your item faster I can arrange a faster shipping method, the price for shipping will have to be adjusted to accommodate the increase in charges.

Additional policies and FAQs

I make every order by hand from my home in my spare bedroom the space isn't much but "I make it work" as Tim Gunn would say. In January of 2015 I made the switch to working full time on Shark's Bites of Life and couldn't be happier.

ORDERING DIFFERENT COMBINATIONS OF COLORS AND SAYINGS:
Order the size/color/style shirt you want it on, regardless of the design shown on the front. Then in the notes section when you are checking out, tell me what design you want. If you do not see the size/color/style you want in the shop, send me a message to see if I have it. If it's not in the shop I just might not have had a chance to photograph it yet and therefore it didn't make it in the selection!
