Warehouse orders

Why do some items ship separately?One of the biggest issues we face as a small business with limited space is finding a place to fit all our stuff! Partnering up with a third party fulfillment company for some of our items helps us offer more apparel types in more sizes with out worrying about space and helps us manage our growing influx of orders with out delaying our shipping times!Why is my shipping price so high when including warehouse items?These items have to be shipped separately so they incur a separate shipping cost, which is added together with the shipping cost of your other items at check out.I reached the free shipping threshold, but I am still being charged shipping?
Items shipped from our fulfillment warehouse are not eligible for free shipping, but the shipping of your other items will be free!
What is the difference between the warehouse apparel and the rest of the apparel on the websiteThe sweatshirts that are shipped from us directly are screen printed, vs the ones that are shipped from our fulfillment partner use DTGWhat is DTG
Direct-to-garment, or DTG, is a printing method that sprays ink onto the garment. The ink then soaks into the fibers of the garment. It's like printing on paper, but on clothing. This differs from Screen printing which is a process where ink is forced through a mesh screen onto a surface. This means each color on a screen printed shirt has to be set up and printed one at a time which is a very time and labor intensive process!
DTG is a much less time and labor intensive which allows us to order less at a time vs screen printing we have to order and store 100s of pieces for each design.
This means we can offer a wider variety of sizes and apparel types.
Most of the apparel that you encounter in the world is DTG unless it is specifically stated to be screen printing.(DTG can be less vibrant than screen printing so please keep this in mind, especially when ordering things on black!)


I understand that starting out as an artist it can be daunting to find resources on where to start getting things made, so I wanted to make this section to address the many questions that I receive asking me where I produce my items/what I use to make them etc.I am ok with sharing some of the manufacturers and resources that I work with however, there are a few manufacturers that I won't be publicly sharing.In the past, I've had some not-so-great experiences when I openly shared certain sources. It led to some complications, and I've learned from that. Additionally, some fellow artists have asked me not to disclose their resources, which I want to respect.As creatives, we should always support and understand each other's boundaries. So, while I can't divulge everything, I hope this helps some people get on the right track.At the bottom of this page I have linked other pages and resources from other artists sharing their information!

Where do you get your stickers made?
I get 90% of my stickers made through Sticker App, but I use Jukebox print and Vograce on and off some times. I get my thank you stickers made in bulk (1000+) through Alibaba.
Where do you get your charms/enamel pins/lanyards/coasters/tumblers/ other items made?
I get these made through a mix of Alibaba, Group Orders, Vograce, and Zap Creatives.
A great resource is the Margalita Pizza Group Order discord server, which you can find here:
Which offers tons of different products from specialty acrylic, minky, wood, PVC and tons more.
I get asked very often where I get my magnet heart charms, and if you are looking for them separately to add yourself, you can find them on Etsy. If you want them as part of your manufacturing process, just ask any manufacturer you are working with if they can add them for you.Where do you get your screen printing done
Night Owl Prints
Where do you get your packing products
Mailers: for poly mailers, for bubble mailers
Shaped packing peanuts: (these are really expensive compared to other packing peanuts but they are biodegradable!)
Custom envelopes (for patreon): Alibaba
(I also use amazon in a pinch)
Where do you get your convention displays
I use a local print shop but they're just 12x12 or 12x24 boards of coroplast (what political signs are made of) or foam core that they print on, which almost any printing place can/will do
Coroplast holds up better over time to wear and tear, but foam core boards have a better print quality.
I then put holes in the boards myself and zip tie all of my charms to the boards for easy set up. Pins I just punch into the boards.
