About GeneralRepublic

Sales 1,307
On Etsy since 2015

It all started one Christmas, when I wasn't sure what to buy for two best friends who got married.

General Republic has been something that was always tossed around in the back of my mind. I'd think of cool design ideas but have nowhere to put them. When two of my dearest friends tied the knot one September, I wanted to give them a meaningful Christmas gift for their first 'married' christmas. He always called her "Mamasaurus" and she always called him "Papasaurus", so late one night I put those words into dinosaur silhouettes, never thinking that it was a popular nickname used between couples.

Then I went to a conference in Portland, Oregon, all by myself. As an introvert I find it hard to be around people for long periods of time, and this was an intensive 4 day affair. I also find it hard to start conversations, and always feel super awkward. When I got back from that conference I made the shirt I wish I had had - my "Genuine Introvert" tee which would have made social interactions a lot less high-pressure! I had no expectation that my design would eventually be featured in the Huffington Post!

Fast forward a little later and my husband and I are heading for our epic, 7 month long "round the world" honeymoon - and I desperately want us to have matching shirts to commemorate the trip so that we can take photos of ourselves in front of all the cool places we're visiting to look back on when we're too old to travel - so again late one night I throw together a vintage style logo with our last name on it.

I had this habit of always buying my husband outdoorsy-themed shirts since he's a hiking fanatic, and he loved them, but he'd go through them so quickly because eventually they'd shrink (he's 6'4 so any shrinkage turns them into crop tops). I thought it would be so cool if instead of buying him the shirts, I made them, with my very own outdoorsy themed designs. The first one I did was "The Mountains are Calling". I liked it so much I made myself a tank top with the same design.

What started as just me wanting to have a few shirts printed for friends and for my husband has blossomed amazingly into a creative outlet that I find so cathartic. Every order I ship fills me with pride - that's my design that someone wants to wear on their body! (Seriously, how cool is that!?). Thank you to every single one of my General Republic army - and for you for taking the time to read this and learn a little bit more about how this little slice of paradise came to be.

Returns and exchange details
We sincerely appreciate your business and want you to be satisfied with your purchase. Please let us know if there is something that we can do to remedy a concern that you have with one of our items.

Please read the size chart on your item prior to purchase. Since all items are made to order, it is important to choose the correct size - we provide measurements for all our products. If you are unsure about sizing, you are welcome to email us.

If you ultimately order the wrong size and still need to return it, we only offer exchanges, not refunds, and they must be unwashed, unworn. You are responsible for shipping costs back to us and the additional shipping to send the new one out to you. Exchanges can get pricey in shipping costs alone, so please email us with any size questions.


If you receive a defective item that is torn or damaged, or are sent the wrong item, then we will replace it free of charge right away.

Please contact us within 5 days of receipt of any problem merchandise.
Please make sure that the Item is properly packaged in its original packing and you use the correct address and appropriate shipping methods for return shipping. We can not be held responsible for items damaged or lost in shipping.

If there is a problem with your order that is the result of our error, we will fix it immediately and pay all return and reshipping fees.

PLEASE NOTE FACE MASKS and GAITERS ARE NON RETURNABLE FOR HYGIENE REASONS.
Payment
Payment is due at the time of purchase. If there is an extreme circumstance, please convo us, we do our best to be fair and understanding. If payment is not made, the item will be relisted and your order will be cancelled.

We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover processed through PayPal. If you don't have a PayPal account, don't despair! Just choose PayPal and follow the prompts to use your credit or debit card, click the “I do not have a PayPal account” and follow the instructions (you will not be required to create an account to complete a purchase).

Some advantages of using PayPal include…
• PayPal is one of the most recognized payment options globally.
• Your credit card information is not revealed to merchants or PayPal members.
• It only takes a few clicks to confirm your purchase and receipts arrive promptly.
• Full protection from unauthorized payments. PayPal uses the latest anti-fraud technology.

Shipping
All our apparel is MADE TO ORDER and requires up to 9 business days to create (often it's faster, but sometimes it isn't). After that, shipping takes between 1-5 business days depending on the shipping service you selected within the USA- it can take longer to Canada as well as the possibility of customs delays.
All orders are shipped via USPS unless otherwise requested and discussed prior to placing the order.


SHIPPING COMPLICATIONS

Our Error:
If there has been some shipping complications (such as you receiving another person's item and there was a mix up in the mail), please send us PHOTOS of what was received with original packaging so we can sort out what happened during delivery and we will send a replacement free of charge immediately, and cover the costs of the incorrect item being returned to us. *Photo evidence is absolutely mandatory!*

Your Error:
If you provided an incorrect or impartial address and your parcel is returned to sender, you are responsible for the costs of re-shipping the parcel and any costs incurred from the post office to obtain your parcel (sometimes they charge return shipping). If at the point in which we receive the returned parcel you would like a refund, a refund will be granted less the cost of initial postage, any fees incurred, plus a 10% restocking fee - so please make sure your address is complete & correct!

Lost/Stolen/Damaged Mail:
We cannot be responsible for lost or stolen items in the mail, and every order is shipped with tracking via USPS. But if it does happen - don' worry, we're here to help! There's always insurance on all orders sent so in the event that something goes wrong we'll submit a claim and work with you for either a replacement or a refund.
