What is Direct to Garment (DTG) printing?
Direct to Garment is a print based system that uses speciality water-based inks. These inks are printed directly on the garment, and absorbed from the garment fibers. Since DTG uses ink, unlike screen printing, it can mix a 1000's different color options to make the perfect design. Designs are created digitally with DTG so the size of the image can be modified to fit the size of the shirt since there are no physical templates to produce.
Why does The Twisted Hippo only use Bella and Canvas Tees?
Bella and Canvas are my personal go to tees with their super softness and flattering fit for men and women. The shirts are lightweight, 4.2 oz, and hold up wash after wash - which is essential with the youth and toddler tees cause washing is an everyday occurance with little ones. Bella and Canvas contain 100% airlume and combined cotton which is the perfect material for DGT inks to produce a vibrant color.

How do I determine my size for a women's fit in unisex style?
I personally love unisex shirts. They aren't boxy like a labeled men's shirt. And they are true to fit. I know sounds odd that they would fit women and men, but they have some sort of magic sizing. For a relaxed fit, women should order their normal size. For a more fitted look, size down. Our size charts are in every listing so you don't have to click back here for sizing. For the ultimate perfect fit, I suggest laying your favorite tee down flat, measuring and comparing to the size chart.
What is the order of a monogram?
I love monograms. It personalizes an article of clothing without revealing your whole name. A typically monogram will be in this order:
First Name, Last Name, Middle Name.
Jane Marie Doe would be JDM
When purchasing any of our monogram custom designs be sure to type out the exact order you want the letters to be in the notes to seller area at checkout.
