50 States Apparel is a community of designers representing our favorite places across America. Designers submit a shirt design to be reviewed by our “Congress” which is a group of respected designers within the community who will approve or provide feedback on the shirt. Once a shirt is approved, it goes live on the site and is available for pre-order. When enough pre-orders are made, the shirt will be produced and shipped out to customers. At the end of each month, if your shirt was produced designers receive a check in the mail for their profits.
