Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How are Fanskrit t-shirts printed?

We use all newest and best available screen printing techniques. We also offer embellishment processes such as foil, rhinestones/nail heads, and flocks to bring your designs to life.


What kinds of t-shirts does Fanskrit use?

We print on either 100% combed ring spun cotton or a 50/50 cotton-poly blend, both of which are soft and comfortable. Each shirt has a profile page where you can find fabric and sizing details across all styles.


How should I wash my shirts? How much will they shrink?

We recommend using cold water and hanging dry if you want to preserve the shirt's original size. The greatest amount of shrinkage will happen if you wash in hot water and then dry using high heat. Neither fabric type — 100% cotton nor 50/50 cotton-poly — shrinks very much (max 4%.)


Do you reprint shirts that are out of stock?

Sometimes, but your best bet is to buy a shirt if you like it. We will reprint a select number of our most popular designs, but they might not be your favorites.

What's the difference between a 'design' and an 'idea'?

Designs are pieces of artwork. An idea is a concept that you describe using text and links. Start Creating.


If I'm not an artist and submit an idea, how will artists see it?

We share your ideas with artists per their email requests.


Why so many shirts for Chicago-based athletes?

Designs representing athletes and sports from every city in the world are welcome. Fanskrit is headquartered in Chicago, so our early designs have naturally gravitated towards depictions of local athletes.


If I'm an artist, why would I want to request use of someone else's idea?

One, great ideas happen everywhere. Two, it doesn't hurt to have another person help promote your design.


If I submit a design to Fanskrit, may I submit it someplace else?

Within the first 90 days after submitting your design, you may not share your work with another company for production.
