What is kb illustration? Who even are you??
KB illustration is a 2 person business made up of Kristen Barnhart (KB) and Jared Peers (JP).
We’re ~going out~ if you were wondering. We met in college studying graphic design and we’re both nerds.
Who makes your products?
We are proud to say that we make 90% of our products by ourselves. Most of our shirts are made start to finish in our home on a small desk. We make everything from the designs, to the screens, to actually screen printing the shirts. Other products like riso prints or enamel accessories are manufactured through other people since we don’t have the tools for that. We love collaborating with other artists and makers, so we try to do that any chance we have!
Who takes your photos?
Our friend Wesley takes the fancy photos for us. You can find her work here
. We take some of our own photos too. Sometimes Amber
takes photos for us too!How do I care for my screen printed shirt?
Since our shirts are screen printed by hand and are heat-set with an iron, it’s important to take care of your handmade shirt! We suggest washing in cold with similar colored clothing and air drying. Air drying will help keep the ink looking darker and more prominent. If you want to iron your shirt, flip it inside out and you’re good to go!
HOW DO YOU SCREEN PRINT? WHAT PRODUCTS DO YOU USE? HOW??
JP gifted KB a DIY screen printing kit from screenprinting.com (NOT SPONSORED). There are tons of helpful youtube videos to help you learn.
How long is it going to take to receive my order?
All shipping rates are calculated by the weight of the product. We pack and ship everything from denton, tx. Most orders will be shipped within 3-5 days from the order date. If you need an item ASAP or shipped overnight select priority shipping or contact us at email@example.com and we can help you.
International orders DO NOT have a tracking number with them. They typically take about 1-2 weeks to arrive unless you chose priority express mail at checkout. We cannot take responsibility for packages lost through international mail. Once it’s shipped out, it’s in fate’s hands.
What if I haven't received my order yet?
Check the tracking! If there is still no sign of it, email us! If it’s been longer than 2 weeks for your international order, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We’ll figure something out together.
Can I return my order?
Unfortunately at this time we cannot accept returns. We do, however, accept exchanges! Your shirt doesn’t fit the way you thought it would and need a different size? Noooo problem. Like most of the answers to these questions: CONTACT US! Send us an email explaining what’s going on and we’ll get it taken care of.
Do you do custom orders?
Sure do. We are multi-talented here at kb headquarters. We (kb & jp) are both graphic designers and are v excited to take on new projects! If you need a shirt design, a new logo, a menu, wedding invites, or anything design related - send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org with a short description, timeline, and budget and we’ll be happy to take a look at it. We’re working on our sister site &GR8 that will showcase our new project focused solely on merging the magic of graphic design and illustration.
Do you still sell stuff on Etsy?
Of course! Etsy was a great starting point for us, but we’re growing and want the freedom to express ourselves how we want without the limitations of Etsy. We will keep some of the same products available on Etsy but this online shop will be our main focus. Custom portraits are now ONLY available through Etsy.
I’m a shop and want to wholesale your products! What do I do?
First of all - AWESOME. If you’re interested in our products, please contact us at email@example.com with details. Let us know if you'd like to view our lookbook.
