Shipping is calculated AFTER you place your order and you will be contacted by email with the amount owed.

Your Velo-Retro T-shirt is made to order, custom printed for you (sorry, no returns). The high-resolution image is applied by either a thin, flexible, heat transfer or by sublimation (only ink is transfered to shirt) depending on the design. This process greatly surpasses silkscreening in detail, sharpness and number of colors. The color image is extremely fade resistant and remains vibrant for the life of the shirt. The image can be applied to the back of the shirt instead of the front if you wish. Or one image on the front and a different image on the back for an additional $5.00. FOREIGN ORDERS WELCOMED!

Shirt style: The shirt brand we use is Triple A (Alstyle Apparel & Activewear, the T-shirt industry standard). They are a high quality, heavyweight, pre-shrunk, soft 100% cotton T-shirt with double-needle bottom hem and sleeves and shoulder-to-shoulder reinforcing tape. They are available in seventeen colors (all the colors are beautiful, by the way).

Incidentally, please feel free to send any shirt you'd like and we'll apply the graphic and refund the cost of the shirt that we use.

Shirt Size Comparison Chart: IMPORTANT! Measure one of your own T-shirts and compare it to the measurements in the chart! Shirt width is measured across the chest below the arms and length is measured from the front neck top to the hem bottom. All chart measurements are in inches.
