Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Can you ship products outside of the US?
A: Yes. We provide shipping to all domestic and international locations with a valid address.
Q: How much does it cost to ship to my location?
A: All domestic shipping is FREE! Pretty cool, right? International and Canadian shipping is based on the total weight of your order, so go in, add all the items to your cart, and checkout accordingly. The system will estimate a shipping price for you once you get to the end of the process. Customer service has no way of calculating this price, so make sure to go through the steps given above for your shipping costs.
If you are ordering from the UK, please check with your local postal service to see if you will be charged an additional customs fee based on the price of your order. We can not include that charge in the original shipping price, change the value of the merchandise in the customs information, or refund anyone for this charge. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Q: How long will it take for my order to arrive?
A: All orders take three to seven business days to be packed and shipped. From there it can take between 3 to 7 business days for delivery within the continental United States, and up to 60 business days for delivery in other countries. Please note that these times are only estimates, and can vary based on exact location. Check with your local post for a more specific time frame. Also note that the packing and shipping process might take a little longer during and after sales, over certain holidays, around the time of company events, or if your order has to be signed or specially printed.
Q: I just received my tracking number, but the tracking site states that it is invalid. Why isn't it working?
A: It takes some time for all of our tracking numbers to send to the United States Postal Service. Give the network some time to update itself, and your tracking will show progress as soon as the numbers hit the system. Sometimes, it can take up to 48 hours to process, so your patience is appreciated.
Q: I know I have all of my information right, but my card is not being accepted. What can I do?
A: Double check your address and other card information. Sometimes even something as small as a missing period can cause a card to be declined.
If you should continue having trouble, try calling your card company. You can also add funds to a PayPal account and try paying that way.Q: How do you recommend that I wash my shirt to keep it in the best shape possible? Are loose ends on the seams normal?
A: Yes, loose ends are completely normal on any shirt. We do not recommend cutting them! Try knotting them instead, and any extra string past the knot can be cut off safely.
When washing your shirt, be sure to use the most delicate cycle to avoid any unnecessary damage or discoloration. Turning the shirt inside out before washing will help keep the design in the best shape possible. Be sure to read the tag for other tips and suggestions.
Q: What kind of shirts do you print on? How can I expect my package to arrive?
A: Our designs are printed on American Apparel Tri-Blend Unisex T-Shirts and Female Tanks. We use American Apparel California Fleece Pullover for hoodies.
Posters are not shipped in frames. We roll the posters in protective foam and ship them in sturdy cardboard tubes. All shirts are shipped in a "tamper-proof" bag.
Q: What's the deal with the voice mail service? What is appropriate to leave there, and how will I be responded to?
A: We have set up a voice mail service for existing customers to call when they need assistance. Customer service will listen to your message and respond via email as soon as possible. No return phone calls are made by customer service for any reason. When calling, please leave your order number so that we can look up your purchase and respond accordingly. Without enough information, we will not be able to respond to your message. The voice mail service is not for general questions. If you have questions please send us an email at CustomerService@ForHumanPeoples.com. All voice mails and emails will be responded to in the order in which they are received. Please do not leave a voicemail and send an email for the same inquiry.
Q: Where is my order?
A: If the standard amount of waiting time has come and gone and you feel like your order may have been lost in transit, check with your local postal service to see if they are holding your items. If the postal service produces no results, try waiting a few days and trying again. After the post has confirmed tracking on your package, the situation is in their hands, but it is rare that packages are completely lost. If your package is returned to our facility, we will contact you once we receive it.
For Human Peoples is not responsible for any packages once the tracking number is scanned into the postal system. If for any reason we should receive any packages back from the post, we will contact you with further options once it is processed.
Q: What shipping method do you use?
A: All products are shipped with the United States Postal Service. We can not ship with any other service for any reason.
Q: I made a mistake on my order/ I want to cancel my order. How do I go about doing that?
A: Send a detailed email right away to customer service regarding any changes or cancellations. Be specific! Please include your order number and the email address used to place the order. The sooner the email is sent, the better chance we have of catching it before it is shipped. We are unable to make any changes or cancel orders that have already been marked as shipped or that have already started the shipping process.
Address changes and size changes are accepted, but we are unable to accommodate any change in design, color, or style. Please place a new order if you wish to make such a change.
Q: I received the wrong order/ my order was damaged in transit. How do I go about exchanging it?
