7. What is your refund policy?

Damaged items:

The last thing we want is for you to be stuck with a damaged item. Any claims for misprinted/damaged/defective items must be submitted within 30 days after the product has been received. Claims deemed an error on our part are covered at our expense.

Packages lost in transit:

For packages lost in transit, all claims must be submitted no later than 30 days after the estimated delivery date. Claims deemed an error on our part are covered at our expense.

Wrong size:

As each item is made to order, we do not keep inventory stock of our products. For this reason we do not accept returns or exchanges. The customer is responsible for picking the right size. Please check the sizing charts before ordering your fresh new shirt. We provide sizing charts for each shirt on their respective product pages. You can also check the sizing charts on question number 11. 

However, if you're unhappy with the size you've received, first check that the size stated on the garment matches the size stated on the sizing chart. Though rare, it's possible that the garment was mislabelled. In that case, get in touch with us at hello@cottondish.com and we'll get you sorted out.

 

8. Is this apparel made in the USA?

No. Our apparel is hand printed in the USA (California and North Carolina) and Europe (Latvia). It is created with the latest in garment printing technology: our inks are water based and eco-friendly.

 

9. How do your shirts fit?

Check each product page for more details.

 

10. What is Ringspun Combed Cotton?

Most tees described simply as "100% cotton" are made from a cheaper, less refined cotton, offering good value for a basic tee. Ringspun cotton is smoother and stronger. It goes through a spinning process that softens and straightens each fiber. Another step up in quality is ringspun combed cotton, which is even more refined.

 

11. How should I wash my Cottondish garments?

We suggest using the follow instructions when washing your garment:

  1. Machine wash cold, inside-out, gentle cycle with mild detergent and similar colors. Use non-chlorine bleach, when necessary. No fabric softeners.
  2. Tumble dry low, or hang-dry for longest life.
  3. Cool iron inside-out if necessary. Do not iron decoration.
  4. Do not dry clean.

Be wary of washing and drying on a high setting, especially when the garment is 100% ringspun combed cotton.

High temperature washes can fade and crack the print, and high temperature dryer settings can shrink the garment, as well as damage the print.

 

12. Are your products eco-friendly?

We try to do our best to minimize waste in packaging and source eco-friendly packaging materials. Many of our packaging materials are either recyclable or biodegradable.

In addition, our inks are water based and eco-friendly. This makes the feel much softer than traditional screen printed shirts, but just as durable.
