A significant part of our products are printed with the direct-to-garment (DTG) technique. With DTG, ink is sprayed onto the garment, which helps it soak better into the fabric and makes the print less prone to fading.For our Supplier DTG prints,use Kornit machines and inks.

Kornit inks are non-hazardous, toxin-free, biodegradable, and certified with an OEKO-TEX Eco Passport.
Reducing the use of plastic in our packaging
Having more environmentally friendly packaging choices is important to our customers, yet it’s one of the most difficult things to do. Plastic materials—like mailer bags and additional plastic wraps—are good at keeping your products safe and sound till they reach your doorstep. However, we’re working on finding ways to reduce our plastic use so we use one poly mailer bag to package them.
we’re also experimenting with using cardboard packaging for phone cases,as well as exploring environmentally friendly void filler options for box shipments to boost our sustainability measures.
The change is going to be gradual, and we're moving forward one step at a time
we've eliminated the second layer of plastic packaging for all single-item shipments
we're testing the best paper tape to switch over from acrylic tape
to eliminate the need for plastic caps in poster packaging, we’ve switched from cardboard tubes to triangular boxes
adding recycling instructions to the poly mailer bags we're currently using
we’ll keep looking for more ways to improve our packaging and reduce plastic use even more.
Learning every step of the wayIt’s a long road to becoming more environmentally friendly,
yet we strongly believe that every move—no matter how big or small—is an important one. We’re putting realistic and tangible goals first, and looking ahead to find new ways to improve.
