Hardline Tattoo & Social Club is more than tuff tattoo apparel. We give a shit.
Hardline Tattoo & Social Club
Cruelty-free and eco friendly are important to me personally and I want to make sure @hardlinetattooandsocialclub merch reflects that as much as possible. I chose to use eco-friendly ink for our apparel printing and choose eco friendly product when they are available. This means responsible production, reduced waste, reduced carbon emissions, and waaaaay less chemicals! The business that I have partnered with to do our merch printing uses inks that have a very low environmental impact, and use energy efficient machines for embroidery and printing etc. resulting in less electricity and water consumption. Not to mention they choose W.R.A.P. Certified companies to source their product from which then becomes available for us. AAAAHHH FRICKING MAAAAAZING.
So what does this mean for you? Well, to be perfectly blunt, shirts and things may cost a bit more. But not by a crazy amount. And I’m hoping it will be worth it for you knowing what it’s supporting. Which is the reason for this loooooooong ass explanation. Also, the prints on apparel looks a little more distressed than the regular screen printing we are all used to. But I will always post photos of the actual product for you to see before you purchase.
I also decided to carry a small number of items in-store at Hardline Tattoo Studio with the rest available through the website. All website products are made to order (unless stated otherwise). Shipping times currently are about 2 weeks which is a little long but that will get faster soon and again I feel it’s worth it to stay sustainable and not create extra waste.
I hope you all love what HTSC has in the works for this winter, I can hardly wait!
