The weight of a shirt and why it’s important:
When considering a shirt online you are often presented with awesome graphics that were targeted for what they think is meaningful to you. You see this apparel item with a cool graphic, or saying, and purchase it. But when you get it it’s either not the feel you were hoping or the fit is strange.
This is where we come in. Some folks like those buttery thin shirts that are snug against you and others love the heavyweight, thick, shirts that are loose. And some want their cake and eat it too and have something in-between.
At Cosmic Beard Designs, we can help you with this. We understand the weights and the thickness of different fabrics. You might not know it, but some t-shirt brands label their shirts with, "ring-spun cotton", or "combed ring-spun cotton," or "ultra cotton." There are also the blended shirts that are a mixture of cotton, polyester, spandex, etc (all in varying percentages).
Shirt weights will determine how “heavy” or how “thick” the shirt is. From a technical standpoint, the weight of a fabric is specified in ounces per square yard of fabric. Anywhere from 3.5oz to 7oz (meaning a square yard of that shirt's fabric weighs 3.5 ounces or 7 ounces). If you ask for our “standard” shirt, it’s usually around a 6oz weight, 100% cotton. This is our "standard" mostly because a majority our customers prefer that type of shirt.
But you might want something different. So be "you" and let’s work with what shirt weight, and material mix, you like most.

We want to thank our customers who purchased our fundraiser t-shirts a few weeks ago to help us support hurricane Harvey relief efforts.
For the short amount of time that we ran the promotion, we sold 5 shirts (which was great given that shortly after we started, there were TONS of other places selling shirts, etc).
Cosmic Beard, as promised, has donated 100% of the profits from the sales of those 5 shirts. We chose to donate to the Salvation Army Hurricane Harvey relief fund
