Frequently Asked Questions
The Atheist-Monkey T-Shirt Company was started in 2011 by a small group of Canadian Atheists. After searching in vain for secular shirts online it was decided that there was a shortage of good quality atheist swag, and the Atheist-Monkey T-Shirt Company was created to counter that.
The Atheist-Monkey T-Shirt Company aims to offer a variety of quality t-shirts for atheists, agnostics, and freethinkers. We strive to provide shirts that are inclusive, antagonistic, and downright offensive. It's up to you how bold you want to be.
While we may never agree on what should be done about the growth of ideological and radicalized religious groups, we can all agree that we, as a minority, must be more visible. Awareness and visibility are the best ways to counter the spread of hateful, homophobic, and otherwise repressive efforts of various religions.
How are the shirts made?
All of our shirts are Classic-cut standard weight Gildan brand t-shirts for men and women. This relaxed fit cotton t-shirt has a seamless rib collar with double-needle cover-stitching, shoulder-to-shoulder taping, double-needle sleeve and bottom hem. The shirt is made from 100% pre-shrunk cotton and has a relatively light fabric weight of 5.3 oz.
There are two print processes used in our shirt designs, Flex and Digital Direct Printing:
Depending on the complexity of the design, your shirt may use one or the other. Each have their advantages and disadvantages. Flex is extremely durable and tests have shown that the form and color of the flex print barely change after 100 washes. It is made of a flexible and resilient material.
Digital Direct Printing
The Digital Direct printing technique is a new form of digital printing. It is used where the complexity of the design necessitates this printing method or more than three colors are required for the design. The Digital Direct Print process is not quite as durable as the flex or flock printing methods and with time the colors will fade with washing.
The Atheist-Monkey T-Shirt Company produces shirts as a partner with Spreadshirt. Spreadshirt is the very best print on demand t-shirt company in the business and we are proud to be one of their partner shops.

What charities do you donate to?

We will continue to donate and stay tuned to our twitter feed to see what donations we are making. Also we like the idea of our donation making a big difference to small charities, so if you have a small secular charity you love, tell us about it and we will send them some money!
How long will it take to recieve my order?
Shipping times may vary, however you should receive your order (standard shipping) in around two weeks. It takes 1-5 business days to make the shirt, and 1-5 days to ship. Faster shipping methods are available for added cost.
