FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Where is the store based?
We live and work in Austin, TX.
How do you say "FLAVNT"?
FLAVNT is pronounced "flaunt". Like "if you've got it, flaunt it". We're just both designers and so we decided we liked how a V looked in the word better than a U. Screw phonetics, we're all about aesthetics.
What is this store's return and exchange policy?
Please take your time to consider our size charts for each item/email us with sizing questions before you order to minimize the chances of needing to return. This is especially important if you are purchasing a Bareskin Binder.
However, we will happily exchange domestic orders for wrong sizes or deliveries for what you ordered if there's a mix-up. BUT PLEASE NOTIFY US. EXCHANGES MUST BE RECEIVED WITHIN 14 DAYS OF DELIVERY. (We will also only accept unworn/like-new products in exchanges).
If a size arrives and you would like to exchange based on preference not on a mistake on our end, simply message us, then pay to ship the item back and we will not charge a return shipping cost on the new item.
Unfortunately due to an overwhelming number of international exchanges and the cost we have to take on due to that, along with the fact that international shipments cannot have tracking through the USPS (leading to a higher risk of those exchanges getting lost/taking an excessive amount of time to reach us), ALL INTERNATIONAL SALES ARE FINAL.
Due to the nature of our business (being that 15% of all sales are actually a donation to our current fundraiser) we only allow full returns on a case-to-case basis at our discretion. If a return is requested due to preference or a change of mind, we reserve the right to refuse a full refund and do not compensate for shipping costs.
If your order is returned to us as a return to sender due to a mistake on your part (insufficient address, you've moved, you missed a delivery and did not follow up with your post office, etc.) you will have to pay for shipping a second time. We have had far too many people incorrectly enter their address/leave off apartment numbers and it results in a huge amount of return to sender packages. So PLEASE CHECK AND THEN DOUBLE CHECK YOUR ADDRESS AND CONTACT INFO.
We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who contacts us with hostility via our website, email, and social media. Please try and address your emails courteously and remember that we are people on the other end of your request. Also provide us with an informative subject line along with your name you used/order number from your order so we can handle your request ASAP.
Do you accept orders placed outside of the US?
We sure do! However, shipping time and cost will reflect that. Also, ALL INTERNATIONAL SALES ARE FINAL (unless of course we make some sort of mistake), so please take a look at our size charts/shoot us an email regarding sizing if you are not 100% sure what size you need.
Additionally we try our best to make sure that customs charges are covered and ship our items as "gifts" rather than "commercial sold items" but cannot always guarantee that every country's customs will be accommodating. *International shipments may be subject to local duties and taxes.*
How long will it take to receive my order?
Once shipped (which will take anywhere between 2-10 business days to process due to being printed on demand) most domestic orders take anywhere from 2 to 10 business days to arrive via USPS depending on the efficiency of your local postal service, tracking is included in your shipping notification email (if for some reason you don't receive this info shoot us an email). International shipping delivery times may vary between 2 and 12 weeks.
Keep in mind that we are a 2-person team so we try our best to keep on top of things so you will receive your item in a timely manner. Holidays are very busy for us and will slow down order processing and shipping due to the sheer volume of orders we get, so please keep that in mind when ordering. Also due to the fact that everything is printed on an on-demand basis your order is printed when your order is placed, and bleached tees may take a bit longer on average (especially weather permitting) as creating them is a slightly lengthier endeavor.
What if I need something by a certain date?
If you have a time deadline for receiving your package (especially if you are not in the US) please contact us and let us know. Ask us if your deadline is feasible and we will do our best to try and make it happen. We usually ship out on twice a week, and you will receive a notification when your item is shipped. However, once we ship out packages they are in the hands of the USPS, we provide tracking within the US which should help ease your mind on the time frame for your delivery but if you are an international customer, your order can take up to 12 weeks to deliver so there are no guarantees on delivery time.
How do I benefit Blair's Surgery?
If you want your order to help Blair (@blurchur on instagram and tumblr) reach her surgery goals just buy something from us! 15% of profits from all sales will be donated to Blair's surgery fund personally by FLAVNT Streetwear.
What if I want FLAVNT to help sponsor me as well?
When we are actively fundraising for an individual we are not accepting other applicants, that being said, sign up for our newsletter and follow our social media because we will post when we are seeking our next fundraising partner. We want to give 100% of our focus to helping whoever we are currently working with before we move on to helping our next "cause." We plan to do so with all individuals we take on in the future as well.
If you are wondering what our requirements are for partnerships-- the basics are: 18+, trans/gender non-conforming, seeking gender-confirming surgery of some sort, and you are willing to promote our brand because we are something you believe in/support.
That being said, if you still would like to rep our clothing or promote us/model be on the lookout for when we are accepting rep applications on our site, you can email us if you think you're a strong applicant outside of these time frames and that we could mutually benefit one another by working together. Due to the amount of inactive reps/models we had in recent years we are going to be reassessing our current promoting situation Spring of 2018.
What if I don't see my size?
If a shirt is sold out for a certain size, we will do our best to restock that shirt as soon possible. However, we carefully consider our stock levels and orders and consistently have decent amount of stock. If what you want is not in stock, we cannot guarantee we will restock it or when, we may have moved on to a new style, color, or design.
Our Bareskin Binders are proving to be highly difficult to keep in stock in the lightest two colors, but rest assured we put in for restocks as soon as we run out with our manufacturer (our turn around time with our manufacturer for binders is roughly 8 weeks).
Do you carry plus sizes/xs?
We do our best to stock a handful of plus sizes/xs in each of our designs. If you don't see your size listed, it may be sold out.
*Some of the specific colors/styles we print on do not come in this full range of sizes but we try our best to include them as much as possible.
Where do you print your shirts?
We print most of our shirts ourselves! Isn't that so cool? You're not only supporting two entrepreneurs but you're supporting us making things?! You're really awesome. (Due to our printing everything ourselves there may be small defects in our prints from time to time but we try our best to only ship out products that pass our quality assurance tests).
We have also in the past gone through a small printshop in Austin called Under Pressure Printing. Our shirt printers can be found online at http://www.austinscreenprinting.biz/
Some of our designs however are fulfilled through a third-party drop-shipping company called Printful. Due to this some items will be shipped separately!
Are your products ethically produced?
Yes, this is very important to us. We print on only brand clothing that are produced using Fair Labor and use small businesses/local businesses whenever possible. Additionally, all printing is done using water based inks which are eco-friendly.
What if something is wrong with my order?
If you have a problem with an order please reach out to us ASAP through our contact form or directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Reaching out via social media is not the most effective way to communicate with us, those notifications are much harder to keep up with. And please DO NOT ask questions about your order anonymously on Chris' tumblr or on his other social media pages, more often than not your question will just get deleted if that's the case because that is not efficient for anyone.
Additionally due to the large number of mistakes made when people input their addresses at check out PLEASE DOUBLE CHECK YOUR SHIPPING INFO BEFORE YOU SUBMIT YOUR ORDER!
What if my shirt looks different from the listing on your site?
We reserve the right to swap our shirt brands/colors when they are backordered through our wholesaler in order to expedite the processing/printing time -- we will always choose the shirt closest in fit/color available. Additionally, we print every shirt by hand so print placement, darkness, etc. may vary slightly. Additionally, we use water based inks to print out shirts, this results in softer prints and less environmental impact than if we used plastisol or chemical-heavy inks, this may result in more "vintage" feeling prints -- please take care to wash your shirts inside out, using cold water only, and either hang dry or dry on delicate.
Can you help me find the right size binder?
We have a "Need help picking a top?" page for our Bareskin Binder with several resources for finding the right color/size for yourself. But please don't hesitate to email us with any questions!
Can I exchange my binder if I get the wrong size?
We do not accept international returns/exchanges, unfortunately, so those sales are final (international shipping is too unreliable to count on merchandise making it back to us). If you are domestic and ordered the wrong size/color, please contact us to see if we have your desired binder in stock -- we will ask you to return your binder to us and we will add you to our list of exchanges. Due to the nature of our binder sales (they sell out quickly) you may be added to a list to receive your exchange when our next stock of binders comes in (usually approximately 8 weeks from the last binder drop) or your exchange will be fulfilled with another exchange that we receive from another customer seeking a different size binder. Take care to try your binder on without stretching it out roughly and with a clean body so as to not mark up the material in case you need to exchange it, we inspect all returns upon receiving them.
*Our first priority is getting people in the correct size garment, but we only accept full returns if someone happens to fall outside our size range (aka they order a binder and our XXS ends up being too big or the XXL is too small on them) and the binder is in like-new condition.
How did you price your binders?
A little about pricing: Our pricing was chosen very carefully to keep our product competitive while also allowing us to support the people we have through the process. Our tops were manufactured domestically (and locally, supporting a local Texas small business) by an all-female team and a female/minority owned business. We also sourced high quality and durable materials that are meant to last. Not to mention that 15% of each purchase (roughly $5 from each binder) is donated to our fundraising partner!
How do I wash my binder?
There are instructions on the interior tag of the Bareskin Binders, but we recommend hand-washing your binder with cold water and mild detergent then lying it flat to dry.
SOME OF OUR ITEMS ARE FULFILLED THROUGH A THIRD PARTY DIRECT TO GARMENT PRINTER, HERE'S SOME INFO ABOUT THAT:
GENERAL SIZE CHART FOR MOST OF OUR SHIRTS:
**Binding should be done at the wearer's own risk, we do not accept any responsibility after purchase.**
