What should we purchase your T-Shirts when it’s cheaper to go to a retail chain?
Besides our cool and unique designs, our Tee-Shirts are really special for the following reasons:
Firstly, we spent considerable time looking for a Tee-Shirt manufacturer which abides by social and ethical sourcing and manufacturing practices, while delivering high quality products. We wanted to design and print great quality Tee-Shirts while remaining true to our commitment to combat climate change and do our part to end modern day slavery in apparel sweatshops. We are ecstatic to have found AS Colour, a company which is renowned for their superior quality products. Their Tee-Shirt specifications include 100% combined cotton (marles 15% viscose), 180 GSM, neck ribbing, side seamed, shoulder to shoulder hems, and which are preshrunk to minimise shrinkage. All our Tee-Shirts are manufactured by AS Colour.
Secondly, you will notice that each of our Tee-Shirt designs focus on a specific cell, organ or body part. We are committed to donating $AUD 2.00 from each sale of our Tee-Shirts to a charity or research entity which caters specifically to each of the organ/body part.

What happens after I submit a Tee-Shirt order?
Firstly, thank you for purchasing one of our cool Tee-Shirts! You can only complete a purchase for items which are currently in-stock. Once you have completed a purchase, you will receive an email to confirmation. We will ship the item to you within 1 - 2 business days and you will receive another confirmation email once this occurs. For items which are sold out, please submit your expression of interest in the Sold Out banner or via Contact Us.
How can I be notified when a sold out item is available?
If an item you wish to purchase is sold out, you can submit an expression of interest by signing up in the Sold Out banner on the product page. Alternatively, you can submit an enquiry via Contact Us or send us an email via firstname.lastname@example.org. Once a sold out item is sent for screen-printing, we will send you an email to advise of its pending availability - how exciting! Once the item is printed and available, we will send you an email with a link to purchase the item from our store!
Why are some items sold out and when will they be replenished?
Institute of Tee-Cells is a small family business and we only keep a small inventory of screen-printed Tee-Shirts at any one time. To ensure environmental sustainability and to reduce waste, we only screen-print batches of at least 25 Tee-shirts. Therefore, there may be a slight delay for sold out items to be printed as we aim to reach a threshold of a certain number of Tee-Shirts before they are printed. As we are still a newly established business, we are learning which designs and sizes appeal most to our clients. By making purchases through our store and through submitting expressions of interest via the restock notification section, we will quickly learn which of our cool Tee-shirt designs are our best sellers!
Where are my Tee-Shirts screen-printed?
All Institute of Tee-Cells shirts are screen-printed in the most liveable city in the world - Melbourne, Australia!
