About Our Products
• Where do you get your art?
Everything at Unicorn Empire is designed by Amber Whitney. Check out our History page for more information about Amber and how she got started designing t-shirts!
• What kind of shirts, hoodies and tank tops do you use?
We print on many different brands to find the colors and styles that we want. Most of our shirts, tanks, and hoodies are made with 100% cotton and some are poly-cotton blends, depending on the style and color.
• How are the designs printed?
We use traditional screen printing using water-based inks. Not only are water-based inks earth friendly, they also make our shirts uniquely soft and durable. Many other t-shirt printing companies use inks called plastisols, which can feel like plastic and have a tendency to crack, peel, and fade. Unlike plastisols, our inks are made to last many washes and will never crack or peel. You can find out more about traditional screenprinting by visiting our Screen Printing Process page.
• Can they be machine washed? How do I make sure the design lasts?
All our shirts, hoodies, and tank tops can be machine washed. Just follow the care tags and be sure to avoid hot water and high heat drying. To keep the artwork on your shirt looking new, we recommend turning it inside out before washing and drying.
Our tote bags and hand-sewn pillows should be hand washed in cold water and laid flat to dry.
