Each design released is traditionally illustrated with symbolic purpose.

The name 'cryptostylis' is a fusion of 'cryptic' meaning that which is mysterious and obscure, and 'style'. It is the creative intent of this project to bring deeper symbolism into the grain of everyday life, breaking through the veil of the mundane and into a world full of magic and wonder. Drawing inspiration from the feral essence of nature and the archetypes of various mythologies, Northeast Ohio artist and screen printer Rose M. Karčić weaves lines of ink with intricate detail to be made into adornment for daily-wear and utmost fashion.

Frequently asked questions
How long will it take to receive my order?

Once sent out most domestic orders take anywhere from 2 to 5 business days to arrive depending on the efficiency of your local postal service. International shipping delivery times may vary between 2 and 12 weeks. If tracking says 'delivered' before actual delivery, most likely it will arrive within the next few days but please contact me if lost in the mail.

Wholesale availability

All of my shirts, patches and prints are available for wholesale at a heavily discounted rate to select physical retail locations. Initial orders must total $300 or more, with payment made in full before items are shipped. Subsequent orders must total $175 or more. Please allow at least 5 business days from the time of your order for completion of items. Larger orders may require additional time. Returns are not accepted though if there are any blemishes with individual shirts I do accept exchanges.

Returns and Exchanges

It's important to me that every customer adores what I create for them. Therefore I accept both exchanges and returns for all domestic orders. To be eligible for a size exchange or return your item must be unused/unwashed and in the same condition that you received it. Special considerations may be made in the rare event of ink fading after washing, shirt seams unraveling, or any defects noticed upon arrival. I do not accept or assume responsibility for loss of or damage to goods while in transit. Please double check your measurements against the size charts provided before you order, as you will be required to pay for return shipping. A full refund will be issued minus original shipping for returned items.

Will you do a custom print for me/my company?

I don't offer custom printing since I am a small scale screen printer and one woman operation. For a better price and efficiency I suggest visiting your local screen printer who specializes in printing logos and designs for organizations and companies for the best rate.

Problem with your order?

If you are unhappy with any aspect of your order please let me know prior to leaving a review. I will walk you through the return or exchange process. Your satisfaction is my top priority and I will work with you to honor all reasonable requests.

Care instructions

All screen printed clothing is washer/dryer safe and needs no special care other than the basic instructions on the garment tags. The water-based ink I use is permanent for the life of the fabric.

Sizing details

Please note for international orders that all sizing within my shop is U.S. based, and may be larger or smaller than the same size would be in your country.
