When unpacking a new shirt or sweatshirt, you might notice a vinegar-like smell or an off-white residue. Don’t worry, that’s not unusual, it’s from a fixation agent applied during the printing process and it’s not permanent. Fixation agent (sometimes known as pre-treatment) helps the ink bond with the fabric, and without it, the ink would flake off the garment. All inks used are water-based and eco-friendly. The solution is simply to wash the garment! Neither the residue nor the smell is permanent and both should go away after one wash.
Born to Build – Baseball T
It is Sarah’s personal opinion that baseball tees are the sexiest possible article of clothing, for any and all genders. This particular baseball tee features the last line of Sarah’s poem “The Type,” as well as Sophia’s bouquet cover art from the book. The combed cotton blend makes it super soft, comfortable, and lightweight, and we hope it will simultaneously make you feel cozy, sexy, and strong.
