Preorders- How Do They Work?
You‘re here because you want to know about preordering a release.
The latin prefix “PRE” means “before” and “order” is the action that you just did. You ORDERED BEFORE the release date. That means, you purchased or are about to purchase a record or sweet, exclusive bundle that has a street date in the future. This means you will not have your order shipped until the week leading up to the release date.
This date varies by product and will be on the item description page, and on your order confirmation email. We will not ship until the week leading up to the release date so please be aware of what this date will be. Postage options may prevent you from getting your order exactly on release date, but we will ship ON or BEFORE the release date.
What are the measurements of your shirts?
We get asked this a lot. Rather than measure each individual item we have these broken down by category. We make “Regular” Shirts and “Slimfit” shirts.
Keep in mind, some sizing may vary, even within the same brand. This should get you started and you’ll get the same answer here as you would if you emailed us.
Important to note: These are for reference only. We do not guarantee that your shirt will measure exactly to these sizes and they may vary as much as 1” in either direction.

Shipping Methods & Info
First Class Intl and - Using the United States Post Office, this method typically takes anywhere from 1-3 weeks. This shipping method includes delivery confirmation and tracking in most areas, some local postal services use other confirmation services. This method is NOT insured. Since since postal services cannot guarantee delivery confirmation, we will not issue any refunds or send any replacement shipments for lost or late orders. For a more secure shipping method we suggest UPS worldwide services.
UPS Worldwide Expedited- Using UPS, this method typically takes 2-5 business days. This shipping method is fully tracked and insured.
UPS Worldwide Express- Using UPS, this method typically takes 1-3 business days. This shipping method is fully tracked and insured.
For Intl Budget, First Class Intl shipments orders can be delayed beyond the original delivery window. This is caused by a few things; how far you are, how it’s shipped, and of course, customs. Customs is where most of the delay is. It can be released in a day or in a month. It all depends on what kind of mood they‘re in.
Depending on your country’s laws, you might have to pay an import tax. This is based on certain items being over a certain value. These taxes are out of our control and we cannot pre pay these taxes. Please contact your local customs people to find out if you have these taxes and how much they are for.
With that being said, we will not mark your package as a “Sample” or as a “gift“. They’ll catch us and you, and then we’ll all be screwed. So the best bet is to be honest.
I am having issues with my digital download. What should I do?

If you did not receive your download link, or you are still having issues downloading, please contact us by sending us a message using the form to the right.
