Frequently Asked Questions
What brands do you print on?
CYNY t-shirts are primarily printed on American Apparel and are 100% manufactured and printed in the USA. A few sizes that American Apparel couldn’t provide are sourced from Royal Apparel. The other products are sourced from a variety other brands all selected based on ethical manufacturing.
How do I know what size shirt to order?
Each product page has links to sizing charts. Refer to these charts and any special instructions given per product.
How should I care for my shirts? Will they shrink?
Although they are pre-shrunk, the best way to care for your shirts is to turn them inside out and machine or hand wash them on cold. Since all of the shirts have some percentage of cotton, they will tend to shrink a little after being washed and dried. For the least shrinkage, dry on low or hang dry.
Do you print your own products?
No. We focus on design and leave the printing to experts like our friends at RealThread.
