Wash & Care

How should I wash my items?


For your apparel to be kept in the best condition we recommend treating it with the best care, hand washing is the gentlest and kindest way to care for your products. They are however machine washable and you can also wash them in the machine at 30 degrees, please see the wash care label in your item for more details. We cannot be held responsible for any damage caused by washing your garments.




The print has wrinkled, what should I do?


Daily wear and tear along with harsh machine washing may cause slight damage to your apparel. If your print has wrinkled your garment may have stretched in the washing machine. If this is the case using an iron on medium heat carefully iron on the back of your design to smooth out any creases. To further restore the print you can place a light cloth over the front of your design and carefully use the iron to trace over the design and smooth it back into place.





Our Brand

How It Works


In order to create a sustainable, environmentally-friendly brand we chose not to mass produce our products. All our products are made to order and shipped directly to our customers. Although this approach may take a little longer to complete, we can assure our customers get premium products from our concious brand.




Our Suppliers


Our supplier prints and ships our products directly to you the customers. We work closely with a local supplier who has excellent quality control and aims to ship only the best to our customers. For one off rush orders we use a secondary supplier who also uses the same printing and shipping method. This supplier is only used if orders have a specific time scale they need to reach our customers by. Lastly, the stationery items in our store are printed by stationery specialists. We hope to expand our range in the future giving more Christian gift options to our customers.

That means: - No toxins in the ink. - No animal by-products used to create the ink, and not tested on animals. - Safe for use on products for both adults and children. - OEKO-TEX® certified.

For mugs that means: - Vegan friendly! - No toxins in the ink. - No animal by-products used to create the ink, and not tested on animals. - Safe for use on products for both adults and children. - OEKO-TEX® certified. For all other sublimation products, including cushions and totes, that means: - No toxins in the ink. - Safe for use on products for both adults and children. - OEKO-TEX® certified.
