We now offer Curbside Pickup at our warehouse as a delivery method for online orders. Pickup orders are usually ready in 1 business day (we'll email you when your order is ready for pickup). Orders must be picked up within 14 days of receiving confirmation that the order is ready for pickup.

When will my order arrive?
Please allow up to two business days processing time for your order to be shipped. Our warehouse is closed on weekends and holidays, and orders are only processed on weekdays. Our customer service desk and warehouse hours are 9am to 5pm, Monday through Friday.
Time in transit does not include processing time. Orders are shipped via USPS First Class or Priority Mail depending on the package weight or customer selection during checkout. Orders weighing less than 1lb. can ship via either method, shipping method for free shipping orders are at warehouse discretion. Domestic orders typically arrive within three business days of dispatch. Once your order has been shipped, you will receive an email with your tracking number.
International Shipping / Customs Fees for Online Orders
Your order may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once your package reaches your country. Unfortunately, we are only able to estimate VAT, duties, and taxes for some shipping methods. When choosing your shipping method, you will see an estimate of duties and tax that you might be charged for some shipping methods. When choosing an estimated shipping option, in most cases we will ship your package duties and taxes unpaid. Some international addresses might provide the option to ship with duties & tax prepaid when shipping via DHL. Please be aware that these duties and tax are the customer’s responsibility and are beyond our control. We advise that you contact your local customs office for information on these charges should you have any questions.
What if it is damaged/defective? If your order arrives damaged or defective, please email us a description of the problem and photos within 48 hours of receipt of your order and we will ship you a replacement.
What if it doesn't fit?
If we made a mistake and you did not receive the product or size that you ordered, please notify email@example.com with your order number, a photo of the packing slip included with your shipment, and we will ship you the correct item.
If you received the item that you ordered, but need a different size, please email us for a return authorization (RMA #) within 30 days of receipt and ship the item back to us with the RMA # clearly noted. You will have to pay for shipping the item back to us, but we will pay to ship the new item out to you.

Where do your designs come from?
All Oaklandish designs are created in-house and through collaborations with local non-profits and artists.
Where do you have your shirts printed?
We screen print all of our apparel in our warehouse in the Jack London waterfront warehouse district. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to inquire about our screen printing services.
Is Oaklandish a nonprofit? And do you work for the city government?
We do lots of work with local nonprofits, but Oaklandish is actually a locally-owned, independent business (and also woman and POC-owned). Our community work is a huge part of what we do, though, so in 2012 we became an official B Corporation. B Corps are progressive businesses that work to solve social and environmental problems. Businesses are scored based on how they treat their employees, the environment, and the community. These certifications help customers tell the difference between the companies that are really committed to doing good, and the ones that just have clever marketing. You can see our score and read our full profile here.
Where do you find your models? Our models are regular Townspeople — ourselves, our friends, and some particularly stylish folks we run into on the street. We think they do a good job of displaying the charm and style unique to Oakland. If you think you'd be a good addition to the site, send an email to email@example.com and let us know! Since we don't hire pros, the best we can offer you is free gear and a good time, but we think it's worth it.
Are you hiring?
