James T. Kirk or Jean-Luc Picard?

Good question! We are old-school geeks so our vote goes to the "Shatner" and his epic overacting skills. That stuff helped make Star Trek the sci-fi hit that it was. Without that early success there might not have been a "Star" anything else. Scary huh?

We make it easy, just add items to your cart and our system will automatically give you the deal. No ninja skills or secret handshakes required. We want you to come back.

Shirt Sizes & Product Info

How are your shirts printed?

All of our shirts are screen-printed. It's old school, requires skill and is still the best way to get a long-lasting print on a shirt. All the printing is done right here in Jacksonville Florida. Your purchase is supporting a small business; it's employees and their families. Not some jerk-offs shipping from China. Oh, did I say that?

Back to top

What type of shirt will I get?

All of our shirts are 100% cotton. We use Gildan and Bella brand tees for most of the designs.

  • Men's tees are traditional fit (full cut not fitted) and are made of heavier 5.5 oz cotton. The heavier cotton and full cut makes them more shrinkage resistant.
  • Women's tees are super-soft 4.5 oz combed cotton and fitted (Junior-Fit). The fitted tee tends to run a bit smaller so if you are between sizes we recommend going up to the next size.

What is an affiliate?

An affiliate is someone who advertises on their site for another site. It's a marketing arrangement by which an online retailer (that's us) pays a commission to an external website (that's you) for traffic and sales generated from the visitors and referrals. You do not have to have you own site. The affiliate's site can be Facebook, a blog or even twitter.

What that means is T-Shirt Bordello will pay you a 15% commission every time the referral results in a sale. For example, someone visits your FaceBook page or blog and clicks a link to our site and buys something you get paid. Cha–Ching! As long as they make a purchase within 6 months you still get paid!

We use the ShareASale platform as they are very reputable and easy to use. No programming skills needed. We promise.

For more details about our affiliate program please visit our affiliates page.
