MITMUNK: Printed apparel for the creative spirit

MITMUNK is a Vancouver-based design studio specializing in printed clothing and accessories.

It all began in 2011 when Wayne discovered his passion for putting original and remixed graphics onto comfortable, wearable garments. Having worked some years ago at a local fashion designer’s studio printing on specialty fabrics, he decided to draw on his experience to design printed clothing of his own.

After spending several months planning, researching, designing, and perfecting the printing process, Wayne and his partner Heather launched Mitmunk’s Etsy shop online. Since then, we’ve expanded our line from t-shirts to printed leggings and more. Mitmunk is proud to be one of the designers showcased in the first annual Vancouver Alternative Fashion Weekend in November 2012, returning again in 2013 to participate in VALT's sophomore year.

We love vintage illustrations, etchings, lithographs, serigraphs; the way ink sits on paper; blacks and grays and whites. You'll find these elements in our designs, which are inspired by and use images from historic, public domain printed matter.

Our garments are printed using the dye-sublimation process. Because the artwork is dyed right into the fabric, the prints on our clothing will not run, so you will always be able to enjoy your Mitmunk design.

In addition to our Etsy shop, you can also find Mitmunk locally at our Vancouver studio, which is open by appointment.

If you have any questions about our items, please feel free to send us a message through Conversations. We'd love to connect with you.

Hello and thanks for visiting MITMUNK! We are a Vancouver-based design studio specializing in printed apparel.

*****We've moved our main shop to

Before placing an order, please refer to our SIZE CHARTS for detailed info on sizing. They are linked from the item descriptions.
The artwork does stretch with the fabric, which can cause the colours to be lighter and less concentrated when stretched. If you find you are between sizes, you may want to consider this when selecting a size.

If you have any questions about our items or policies, please do not hesitate to send us a message through Conversations.

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
While every effort has been made to represent our stock accurately, please do not hesitate to contact us for specific inquiries or general uncertainties. All items are final sale. That said, we want you to have a positive buying experience with Mitmunk and we are happy to address any issues post-sale.
We accept payment through PayPal only at this time.

We do require full payment immediately upon checkout. If payment is not received along with an order, we reserve the right to terminate the transaction and re-list the item.
Upon completion of order placement and receipt of payment, t-shirts and in-stock leggings are shipped within 5 business days through Canada Post. Leggings not currently in stock are shipped in approximately 3 weeks due to longer production times.

If you place an order that has an in-stock item and a back-ordered item, the order will not ship until the back-ordered item is ready to be shipped, so that the entire order ships together in one parcel. If you would like to make other arrangements, please send us a message.

Delivery times may range from 3 to 15 business days, sometimes longer to some international destinations. Some international locations can take up to 6 weeks, according to Canada Post delivery standards. Customers in Germany have been telling us that it's taken up to 7 weeks to receive their parcels.

We ship domestic within Canada, to the United States, and to the international destinations listed below. Our default shipping method does not have tracking information.

Customers in British Columbia will be charged 12% tax (PST + GST). Customers in Canada will be charged 5% GST.

Express shipping (which includes tracking information) is available at an additional cost. If you would like this method of shipping, please send us a message through Conversations. The cost of this will be calculated based on package size, weight, and shipping destination.

The buyer is responsible for the payment of any duty or customs fees. Customers in the UK have informed us that the UK border agency charged a customs fee on packages we've sent; please be aware that there is always a chance of a customs fee when purchasing internationally.

Customs procedures can also delay delivery; we will generally wait until 6 weeks after shipping before considering taking any action on orders that have not yet arrived. To minimize the risk of lost untracked packages, a tracking option can be selected at an additional cost; please contact us to make arrangements.

If you make multiple orders within a short time frame and would like to have your items shipped together to save on shipping costs, please inform us and we can accommodate your request if we receive it in time.

Please note that we cannot offer any guarantees for delivery times, so if you're looking to purchase something in time for a particular date, it's best to do so as early as possible!
