          Outstanding Service!!

          My elementary class recently completed a unit on the Revolutionary War. You can imagine my disappointment when I discovered this amazing site after the unit was over. I ordered anyway -thinking ahead to next year’s class- never thinking I would receive my order prior to the end of school. Surprise! My order was here so quickly, that I have had the opportunity not only to wear the shirts I bought, but also to begin reading aloud the book I purchased!!! Thank you!!!!

          Get it!

          This sweatshirt is super comfy, truly soft and so fun! I’ve gotten a compliment on it every time I wear it. Runs ever so slightly small. I dozed up to a medium and couldn’t be happier!

          Perfect gift for my History Nerd!

          A Superhero Shirt for the TRUE Superheroes!

          I love this shirt and the 5 founders commemorated upon it! It fits great, looks sharp in the light blue color. My students all gave me kudos on my shirt. Even the Science teacher nerded out over it! I'm looking forward to the next version!
