Hey now, My name is Steve Anderson, and I do my best to make the finest tie dyes available. I enjoy travelling all over the US, making and selling my art, and actually spending time with a great deal of the people who buy my work. I teach workshops for schools and parties, so I'm fairly seasoned at making sure to be able to do my work wherever I go. I consider my work to more in the line of art, than merchandise, and I take every purchase very seriously, as some of my best friends were customers first.

I hope you'll enjoy looking through my work, and of course, I hope you'll find a piece that you'd like to own, or give as a gift to someone that you really like~

Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
During my entire career, I've only been asked for one refund. Most people come back for more, but if the artwork that I send you is not up to your expectations, please send it back and I will send you your money back, as long as it has not been worn or altered.

If you decide that you'd like a different size, please send it with a stamped Priority Mail Envelope (preferably the same size and style that I use to send it to you), and a note that tells me what size you need, and as long as it hasn't been worn or altered, I'll be hapy to trade it for the size you want. Keep in mind that XXL and XXXL adds $5, and long sleeves add $10.
I require payment in advance. I have paypal and credit card capabilities set up on etsy, and I accept checks and money orders by mail. Items paid by check will be shipped when it clears in my merchant account. I trust you, but I don't trust the scam artist who might be pretending to be you...
I usually use USPS Priority Mail, but if you have some special shipping needs, and would prefer a different method (UPS, FedEx, Reindeer, Packmule...), I will work with you, and the shipping cost will reflect the difference, even if it's less.

I ship every piece as soon as it's possible to send it. If It's a design that is in stock, I will mail it within 5 business days of payment, but if I have to make it, I'd like at least three weeks, unless it is a stitched piece, which might take as long as four weeks, but if it's a challenging new custom stitched design, it might take up to six weeks, and require some coorespondence, to get your approval for my final drawing.
Additional policies and FAQs
For custom orders, I appreciate any help with a link to, or jpg of, the source that you'd like rendered, and I may need a bit more time for designs that I have to develop a new drawing for.

I do not offer a wholesale price on the stitched pieces, as they take about six hours to make, but for traditional designs, deals are available on orders of 2-4 dozen (25% off retail) and for orders of 4-6 dozen (33% off retail), and six dozen or more (50% off retail)~

Consignment~ I do not consign. I have consigned my work on four seperate occasions over the last twenty eight years, and if either of those stores ever falls back onto the face of the earth and pays me, I might change that policy, but I wouldn't hold my breath...

Frequently Asked Questions~~

Will it shrink?
They have been laundered four times, and dried twice, so it should have done all the shrinking it's going to do, by the time it reaches you.

Should I wash it by itself?
The first and second times, yes. I wash it four times, and dry it twice, as part of the process, but after it has sat folded for a while, the dye 'relaxes' a bit, and it might discharge some blue water, which could stain your whites, but the colors on the piece itself, will not fade.
After it has been washed and worn twice, it should be OK with other bright colors, as long as those other bright colors have been washed without incident before~

Are there any other special washing instructions?
I wash mine as regular laundry, with my other bright colors, and they last for years, but I've had some friends tell me that they hand wash and hang to dry, which of course makes them last longer, but special care is not required.

Will I encounter a lot of groovy people if wear these?
