FAQs about Sabaku Artwear
Where are Sabaku Artwear shirts made?
Our ladies' tees are made and dyed just for us in Los Angeles, California. Men's tees are made off shore and then dyed in either Vermont or New York.
What size do I wear?
Our ladies' tees are a generous missy cut. You may wear a smaller size than you think depending on your figure. Generally, if you wear an 8-10 our small is your size. For size 12, choose medium. For size 14-16, choose large and for 18-20 choose x-large. We also have a plus size 1X.
Men should choose the size they normally wear in a t-shirt.
Will my shirt shrink?
No. All of our tees are garment dyed. This means that the shirts are sewn and then dyed. All of the shrinkage occurs during the dyeing process. The size of the shirts may vary a bit from dye batch to dye batch and this is a normal and expected result of the garment dye process. We suggest you try on your shirt before wearing to insure a proper fit.
How do I wash my shirt?
Please wash your shirt inside-out in cool water and mild detergent. Always wash shirts with like colors. We recommend liquid detergent without brightening agents. Tumble dry your shirt on low and remove it promptly for best results.
What if I get a stain on my shirt?
If you get a greasy stain on your ladies' tee, we recommend a product called Soil Love to remove it. Please test this, or any other grease remover on a discreet area of the shirt before putting it on the stain. Men's shirts are a bit trickier because they are pigment dyed. Stain removers WILL remove the dye from the shirt. Our best advice is to use a mild solution of water and Dawn dishwashing soap to pre-soak the spot then wash the shirt as usual. It may take several washings to remove the spot.
Can I iron or dry clean my shirt?
You can carefully touch up your shirt with an iron being careful not to touch the iron to any of the silk-screened areas as it will ruin the printed art work. Never dry clean your shirt!
Can I get a design printed on a different color, style or on a shirt that I provide?
No. We only stock our designs on the color and styles that are displayed on our website. We cannot print special requests nor can we print on provided shirts. Each special request requires individual attention and we do not have the personnel to adequately tend to them. However, if you have suggestions about color and style, please let us know. We love to get your feedback!
When placing an order, how do I make a special request, such as for a gift receipt or a gift note?
In your Shopping Cart you will see a place that says "Add special instructions for your order . . .". Please use this space to add your request.
