Product Notes:
  • The design has been adjusted a bit smaller so that it doesn't get cut off when you tuck in your shirt. See the last six photos for the true design size.
  • If your shirt has a smell, this is a pre-treatment that's added to shirt to prevent the graphic from fading. Throw you shirt in the wash and it will come out completely fresh.
