Video summary: The plain shirt is clamped into place, prepared for printing, and inked, using the Direct to Garment (DTG) process. Once the inking process is complete, your shirt is unclamped and checked for any errors or misprints. Finally, your shirt is carefully packaged and shipped to your door!

This is Wight Modern.

Wight Modern was born at the table of a tiny Dutch AirBnB we were renting in 2017.

Wandering the streets of Amsterdam, the cheap souvenir t-shirts stuck out for all the wrong reasons.

They were tacky, thin – the kind of cheap material that has a hole in it by the third wash. There were no unique, quirky or colorful designs that could show off my style either (cannabis leaves aren’t quite my thing, y’know?).

I was disappointed with what was on offer, and there was no way I’d spend my cash on any of them.

The only thing left to do was to take matters into my own hands.

Within a few weeks, my first ever creation - a ‘Doei!’ souvenir shirt - was born. It was everything I wanted from a souvenir shirt; it was stylish, simple, and the rest of the city wasn’t wearing it…

Once I’d started designing, it was impossible to stop. I created a whole bunch of designs at my AirBnb’s dining table that I could send to anyone, anywhere in the world who wanted to show their unique style without being ripped off in the process.

Eventually I branched out from creating just souvenir shirts. My style was evolving, and my sketches and designs showed it. I began to find my passion in pop culture: movies, incredible bands and musicians… My designs became bigger, brighter and more distinct with each one I created.

Now I spend my time crafting the perfect shirt with you in mind. I’m not here to churn out yet another band t-shirt that looks the same as everyone else’s. I’m here to help you find your quirks, your style, and give you a good quality shirt you’ll be reaching for day after day.

You know the tee I’m talking about. It’s the one you’ve had for years that’s had so much wear it’s turning vintage. The one that’s so comfortable it feels like a second skin. The one that leaves strangers in the street wondering where the hell you got it from.

Forget tacky & tasteless throwaway tees. With an exclusive Wight Modern shirt in your closet, you can show your distinct & effortless style every day. I don’t just pride myself on the one-of-a-kind, customizable, pop culture designs I create, but the quality of the material they’re printed on & the service I provide.

You see, every shirt is made to order, & I don’t keep an inventory. That means that your shirt is a completely unique & crafted piece of work. It's not a by-product of fast fashion or overproduction so we’re doing our bit for the planet too.

There’s also only a certain number of each shirt design available so you can relish in the fact that this print is all yours and not a replica – keeping your style completely individual.

As a digital nomad, partnering with Printful for my dropshipping needs is a no brainer.

Printful take care of the production and shipping side of things. They’re trustworthy, and great with communication, which means your shirt is printed with the best inks and dyes out there and sent off as quickly as possible.

That’s perfect for me, because my office is wherever I am in the world (right now that’s California). Using Printful means I can continue creating off-the-wall, exclusive designs without any distractions, so there’s more choice for you available in store.

Frequently asked questions

I love a design but I can’t find my size or the right fit. What should I do?

Don’t worry – it’s possible to have your design printed on any sized tee (we even do baby sizes!). Just shoot me a message with your query & I’ll take it from there!

My tee just arrived but it smells of vinegar – why is this?

Don’t worry – your shirt’s just been made using the Direct to Garment (DTG) process.

This process uses water-based ink, which means that each shirt needs to be sprayed with a protective solution that smells of vinegar before it’s sent into the printer.

This is a completely harmless and environmentally friendly solution, and the odor will disappear after the first wash.

Can I get overnight/next day delivery on my order?

Unfortunately, overnight and next day delivery isn’t possible on any of my products – each tee is printed to order at a print shop with a fixed location.

I accidentally ordered the wrong sized shirt! Can I exchange it or get a refund?

Because each tee is unique and made to order, exchanges and returns aren’t possible.

To ensure your tee is the best fit for you, always check sizing details on the listing to avoid accidentally ordering the wrong size.

What brand do you use for your shirts?

Our print shop uses Bella + Canvas for unisex tees & Gildan for women’s tees.

Don’t see the tags? That’s because your tee’s been specially branded – you’ll only find Wight Modern’s branding inside your shirt.

Want to know the make-up of your tee depending on the color and style?

•Solid colors - 100% combed and ring-spun cotton
•Ash color - 99% combed and ring-spun cotton, 1% polyester
•Heather colors - 52% combed and ring-spun cotton, 48% polyester
•Athletic and Black Heather - 90% combed and ring-spun cotton, 10% polyester
•Heather Prism colors - 99% combed and ring-spun cotton, 1% polyester

Caring for your new tee

Keep your tee in tip-top condition by:
•Machine washing it inside out on a cold, gentle cycle
•Using a mild detergent & no fabric softeners
•Tumble-drying on the lowest heat OR
•Hanging it out to dry (this will help it live its best life)
•Ironing inside out & only if necessary
•Not ironing the decoration
•Never sending it to the dry cleaners

A note on sending costs

•Domestic shipping is free (woohoo!) & there’s a flat rate of $5 for international shipping.
•Every package is tracked!
•You may find an international customs fee added to your package on its arrival. Wight Modern cannot be held responsible for any extra fees.

Awesome! Your payment’s been received & we’re ready to roll! A few extras to keep in mind:

•Your tee will be lovingly packaged and shipped off within 7 days of purchase.

Returns & Exchanges

I love a design but I don’t want it on a t-shirt. Do you offer anything else?

Creating your own unique garment is the perfect way to stand out from the crowd.

Fancy one of the Wight Modern designs on a tote bag, sticker or something else? I’ve got your back. Shoot me a message and we can come up with a solution that gets you exactly what you want.

A note on custom order pricing:

You’ll never be charged extra for making a custom order.

However, please bear in mind that the end price of your custom order will likely be different to the price of a regular shirt in my store. This is due to the varying costs of the materials I would need to order to complete your custom piece.
