We create each item once the order is received.  This will allow us to customize many of our designs that we will be releasing soon.  This "boutique" process also means we are able to limit the number of designs sold, which means you won't look like everyone else.  If you see something you like, we suggest you order it as soon as possible.  Once a design is pulled from the site, it may not be made available again.  Since we don't stockpile shirts in a warehouse, you may miss out on what could have become your favorite shirt.
