Welcome to the Shut Up & Sit Down merchandise shop*! This is our first time trying this and it’s something of a trial by fire with some limited run t-shirts, so if we run out of your size, apologies. We’d also like to apologise if we don’t run out of your size, in case it brings on the feeling of being picked last for a game of sports.
If you’re here to support Shut Up & Sit Down please consider subscribing instead, as we keep much, much more of your contribution that way, and you’ll also enjoy our monthly behind-the-scenes newsletter! That said, if you want to be a walking advocate for SU&SD, that’s literally on you!
A few words on our Most Excellent t-shirts:
We’ve gone with a very high quality, soft and durable t-shirt from a brand called Next Level. The shirts are 100% ring-spun, preshrunk cotton, and the quality and fit is similar to American Apparel. Next Level is WRAP certified, and maintain a high ethical and labour standard in their manufacturing.
This shirt design is a unisex fitted shape, so will fit a bit more tightly than some t-shirts, and will still shrink up to an additional 10%. So, when in doubt, go with a size larger! Unfortunately, the surveys we sent out indicated very little demand for a dedicated women’s t-shirt, so it wasn’t viable for us to print and warehouse any this run. We’ll be inquiring again next year, so do make sure to let us know if you’d like some.
We also went with a very high quality printer in the US who were recommended to us by several designers. The designs are printed with “soft inks,” rather than a thick plastisol ink, meaning the designs will last longer and the shirts just feel nicer!
The designs themselves are each brilliant; thanks so much again to our contest winners for letting us put their art on our bodies. Since we’re coming into winter we went with darker/more season appropriate t-shirt colours. Hopefully you spot something you like.
On Pricing & Shipping:
All prices and rates are in USD.
Everything is shipping with USPS from some lovely new friends we made in Florida. They are seasoned pros with over 2 years in the fulfillment business, shipping over 2,500 packages each day. Their US location does mean higher shipping rates for our fans outside of the Continental US, so keep that in mind and use the shipping calculator at checkout. Shipping one to three (or even four S/M) items outside of the US will be almost the same, so consider teaming up, sharing or grabbing some early Christmas presents.
Some UK fans have pointed out potential fees and tariffs on shipments from the US – do make sure to keep those in mind when ordering from anywhere outside the US as they are sometimes charged at customs. The packing slip will not have any pricing information on it, just the return to sender information. We are looking into options for getting shirts over to the UK for shipment from there, but it won’t happen before Christmas I’m afraid – sorry for the inconvenience.
On Customer Support & Returns:
