Are taxes included in the prices?

How long until I get my order?
It's safe to assume that you'll receive your goodies in anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks (depending on the destination). If you need your order ASAP, or by a specific date, please let us know so we can ensure it gets to you on time.

We ship orders once a week from Wakefield, Québec.

Can I return or exchange a product?
Yes. If you're not completely satisfied with your order, or if you'd like to exchange an item, please return it to us within 1 week of its receipt and we'll gladly issue a refund or exchange.

Please note that if you're exchanging an item because it's the wrong size, you'll be responsible for shipping fees, and we will, of course, only accept returned items that are in the same state they were in when you received them (ie: not worn, ripped or stained).



Where are your shirts manufactured?
All of our tees, sweatshirts and totes are made in either Canada, the US or in a WRAP certified facility, and screen-printed in Canada.

Are your paper products printed in the Maritimes?

How do I best care for my t-shirt/sweatshirt/tote bag?
To keep your garment looking its best, turn it inside out before washing it. Use cold water, a gentle cycle, no bleach, and hang dry.
