Orders FAQs

I placed my order - now what happens?

If you used a PayPal instant payment and received a confirmation that your order has been placed, we got it! Once received, we begin the printing process as we print 90% of our designs here at ATA HQ. We are a small, but extremely dedicated team and we work crazy hard to produce and ship your order ASAP! Because we produce each item especially for you, our usual ship time is 8-10 business days, but we do everything posible to get orders out sooner.

If you used a PayPal E-check, please allow up to 5 business days for the E-check payment to clear, and an additional 8-10 business days for delivery. This time-frame is out of our control and completely controlled by Paypal.

Occasionally, we have to wait a few extra days to get certain shirts back in stock, and sometimes this causes small delays. If it's been over 10 business days and you haven't received your order - let us know by filling out our Order Support Form. and we'll get right on it!

Shipping FAQs

How much is shipping?

We charge $4.95 for shipping and handling for one shirt within the United States. It is an additional $3.00 for each item after that up to 4 items. So, If you bought 2 shirts, you would pay a total of $7.95 for shipping.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes! We have shipped to every continent on the planet save Antartica! International shipping rates vary per location and orders can take a bit longer to arrive as they all must pass through customs.

Charity FAQs

Is ATA a company, charity, non-profit...what?

We are a for profit apparel company and don't have a 501c3 designation. So, we pay taxes every quarter and abide by all the rules of owning a business in California. However, we are built on a charitable model that allows us to donate a percentage of all proceeds to our shelter partners.

How does ATA work with charities?

The entire motivation behind ATA is do help fund struggling, loving people who spend their own money to help, spay, and neuter discarded animals. A very generous portion of all proceeds go to very reputable animal care organizations. New California legislation passed in Jan of 2012 prevents businesses from stating their charitable donation percentages in marketing or branding UNLESS they have a separate LLC, business license and third-party escrow/holdings company to manage their donations on a monthly basis. We looked into doing this and it was upwards of $12,000 and we simply can’t afford that. What we do as of now is assign checkout codes to our shelter partners and any purchase made on our website will automatically generate a percentage donation that goes directly back to that partner at the end of the month! So, although we can't state a percentage publicly and plaster it all over for marketing reasons, you can read our Facebook page and seek all posts from Strangest Angels & Barks of Love. You will see how consistently we donate to them, and how happy they are to receive them!
