FAQ

Shopper FAQ

How can I tell the difference between a Maker and Designer product?

Makers and designers are required to put in the product description where the product was made.

For example: "Designed and printed in Michigan. T-shirt made in China." This tells us that it was designed and partially manufactured in Michigan, but the shirt was made in another country.

Production, Shipping, & Handling

The Makers & Designers are in charge of being transparent with the customer on how long it will take to produce and ship your products within the product description. 

Returns

The Makers & Designers will process returns individually.
