Merchandise Information

I wear a size ____ can I have apparel made for me? Can you print my design? Can I pick a different color?

The sizes and cuts we offer for our apparel come straight from the manufacturers, so the range is based on what they have available for us. We understand the need for smaller or larger sizes sometimes, but we are unable to accommodate requests for specific sizes or cuts that we don’t currently offer.

We cannot alter a design or print a design on a different color base than what is currently offered.

What should I do if I see someone using your designs and selling them?

We aren't able to do much in the way of stopping imitation merchandise, but if you happen across blatant copies, you’re welcome to let us know, and we can help to keep tabs on it! 

What brand of shirts do you print on? What is the fiber content?

Most of our shirts are printed on Next Level Apparel or Bella + Canvas shirts, occasionally a shirt is printed on American Apparel, Gildan, or other brands. This information will be included in the product description. To be sure that the size you are ordering is the correct one, a size chart is included on every product page that designates the brand of apparel. 

Most of our shirts are 100% cotton, with some being cotton/polyester blends. We also try to list this in the product description. If there is a specific piece of apparel you want to know more about and the info isn’t in the description, feel free to email us ( and let us know the name of the product you would like additional details about! We’ll let you know and update the product description.

How should I wash and care for my items?

Your microscope will come with a manual, and there is a maintenance section there. If you no longer have your physical copy of the manual, you can find a PDF version of it here!

Shirts/hoodies should be turned inside out, washed in cold water, and tumble dried on low to ensure the longevity of both print and fabric. If you are worried about shrinking, then line-dry apparel. Ironing is not recommended, as some print methods (plastisol) are heat cured and will melt.

When will you get ______ back in stock?

If and when an item is restocked depends on the item. Unless it is a limited edition or limited-time sale, most items are restocked as they sell out, so we don’t always have a way to estimate when that will be. If you’d like to be notified when an item is available to purchase again, simply click the “Email Me When Available” button to add your email address to our list. This will only add you to the back-in-stock notification and not any of our other newsletters or promotional messaging.
