FAQs

SHIRT INFORMATION:

Q: Do your shirt sizes run big or small?
A: Almost all of them run true-to-size (aka - average in fit)
Note: CANVAS brand shirts run a bit more narrow than NEXT LEVEL.

Q: Where are the shirts made?
A: The blank shirts are made all over the world.
They're all printed in Portland, OR U.S.A
See individual design pages for specifics on country of origin.

Q: What makes the shirts so soft? Are they bamboo?
A: None of out shirts are bamboo blends but the softness comes from the blends we choose to print on and the way those fabrics are produced. CANVAS sums it up nicely here.

Q: Will the design fade? 
A: Nope! When you notice cracks/fading in other shirt designs, it's because the ink was never heat-set properly - CleverDork tees are heat-set carefully. The design should outlast the shirt itself.

Mini-Fabric-Glossary:

  • Heather: In clothing, heather refers to interwoven yarns of mixed colors producing flecks of an alternate color. It is typically used to mix multiple shades of grey or grey with another color to produce a muted shade.
  • Tri-Blend: The fabric for tri-blend shirts are composed of three materials, typically a blend of polyester, cotton, and rayon.
  • 50/50: Half cotton, half polyester. Note: Our 50/50s are actually 52%/48%.
