Expectations & Pre-Orders
by CJ on Thu 07 Oct, 2010
UA is not a brand in the traditional sense. There is no explicit intention to create a cohesive set of designs. Rather, UA is a creative outlet for me to learn how to design, print, and run a small business. With today’s technology, it is possible to run a small business as a hobby. That’s the theory anyway. Subscribe to my blog and follow along as I attempt to prove this theory.
UA is maintained in my spare time. It occupies my interests in small business and printmaking. In addition, this hobby is a solo effort. I run the business end, create and maintain the UA website, create the graphics/artwork, and fulfill the orders. I also pull all the prints on a 6-color carousel t-shirt press in my garage. Everything is done in-house, literally.
Just because UA is a spare time project doesn’t mean it’s not a priority. Rest assured that quality and customer service is paramount to this endeavor. Learning and creating a community of satisfied customers are key. That said, here is a short list of other things you can expect:
Low-Cost, High-Value, Custom Printed T-Shirts
You can expect custom printed products using water-based inks for an affordable price. Designs will primarily be printed on American Apparel or Alternative Apparel garments and will be offered via pre-orders. Subscribe to the UA blog to know when new pre-order designs are available.
Money Back Guarantee
Return any product for a full refund, minus shipping, for any reason. If the reason is due to my fault in any way, you can expect a full refund that includes shipping. Please contact me should you have any issues.
If an item is in stock, it will be shipped that day or the following business day. If the item is in pre-order, the item will be shipped the next business day after it is printed. In most cases, all orders are shipped world-wide via USPS.
Pre-orders are UA products that are offered for sale before they are printed. A computer generated mock-up of a design is created and a perspective buyer has a window of time (usually 7-14 days) to purchase the pre-order item at a discount (usually $10-$12 for an American/Alternative Apparel t-shirt). After that, the pre-order sale for that item is closed and the garments are ordered, printed, and shipped to the buyers. Any additional garments printed are added to the Shop for a higher price (usually $14-$18 for an American/Alternative Apparel t-shirt).
