From Cooking to Tshirts

I doodled on all my notebooks in school. One day one of my chefs leaned over and said "I would totally wear that if it were on a tshirt." So I said to myself, "I wonder how you make a tshirt..."

I bought a video on Craigslist on "How to Silkscreen" and rigged a printing station together with an ironing board, some plywood, and a screen that came with the video.

When the students saw the tshirt I made for our chef, they started placing orders. People actually flipped through my notebooks ordering different pictures that were doodled in the margins. It was crazy!

I actually was a chef at a catering company for the next 2 years, but I realized I was making more money selling shirts on the side than being a chef. So I quit the catering company, and started selling at local flea markets and farmer's markets.

I never looked back. I hired my best friend Stan to help me out once a week in 2008, and he fell in love with going out to fairs. He started his own line of men's chainmaille wallet chains (he said there was never any "man-jewelry" at the craft fairs) and now we sell side-by-side everywhere we go! He has taught me everything about chainmaille and I have taught him everything about Tshirts.

Life is completely awesome.

    I love stick figures! They're the only things I can draw. They make people giggle, so I figured Tshirts were the best way to make the most people giggle. I also co-wrote & illustrated a children's book in 2012 and my mom is very happy about that.

All artwork is designed and hand-silk screened (no machinery, I freehand screen print on my ironing board, baby!) by me and only me.

Since all my products are handmade to order, there will be slight variations between what is pictured and the item you will receive.

I prefer immediate payment as any delay will hold up me starting your custom shirt(s).

Shirts can be picked up in person at my booth to save on shipping. An event calender is posted at: http://j2shirts.webs.com/contact-event-calender

...just make sure you mention you're coming to pick them up!
Shirts are custom-made to order and ship 5-7 business days after all shirt details are confirmed.

For example:
You pay for your shirt the same day you place you order.
Say it takes you 4 days to find out your nephew's shirt size and get back to me.

It will take 5-7 business days AFTER YOU CONFIRM THE DETAILS for me to order your blank shirt specifications, get it, print it, and treat so it's machine washable for you.

If you have a rush order, I can check my craft fair/market inventory for current stock to try and get something to you sooner.
Refunds and Exchanges
Shirt doesn't fit right?
Maybe you don't like the color..?
Or wow... does this shirt make my ankles look puffy or WHAT?

Seriously, I don't care what your reason is. I WANT YOU TO WEAR THE SHIRT. If you're not going to wear it, it will just sit in a drawer somewhere being sad and lonely. No one wants that!

I will take exchanges as long as the shirt hasn't been washed yet. Yes even months or years later -even if the design is discontinued! Pick another shirt, another style, size, color, design, anything! You can even credit it toward an upgrade (like from a shirt to a hoodie). Send it back and I'll get you something more to your liking.
Additional policies and FAQs

It takes 10-15 business days for me to ship a wholesale order depending on the size of your order.

The first order must be at least 30 items and the discount is 50% off the retail prices listed in my Etsy store. Following the initial order, you must order a minimum of 12 items each time (any size, style, color or design)* to maintain the discount.

In my store I only carry white, black and red, but I would be happy to provide you with any color combination you'd like. (i.e. orange for Halloween, pink for Valentine's Day etc.)

You can call, txt, or e-mail me ANY TIME, but final orders must be placed by e-mail or snail mail so I have a confirmed hard copy of your exact order.
