Yes. It is recommended to turn the T-shirt inside-out before washing and
do not tumble dry the T-shirts as the alert image may crack and/or fade.

Do the t-shirts come in any other colours?

No, only white T-shirts are available on the Star Allergy Alerts website
- it is more versatile that way! But you will find many different styles
(and colours) of clothing and promotional products available at our US-based
Global Clothing Store HERE!

top

Are the T-shirts at your Global Clothing Store the same size as the ones available on the Star Allergy Alerts website?

The T-shirts on the Global site are slightly smaller than the sizes
we offer in Australia, so it is recommended that you order the
'next size up' for your child.

Can I order custom Badges, T-shirts and Stickers?

We can customise Badges for your child's particular allergy or
medical condition but unfortunately we cannot customise T-shirts
or Stickers. The cost of custom Badges is $20/2 Badges (57mm size) or
$25/2 Badges (85mm size) and you can order as many (multiples of 2)
as you like! Simply choose a background design from our Badge range,
and email or phone your order along with delivery address and
credit card details. P&H is $10/2 Badges and delivery normally
takes 5-7 business days. Please contact us for details!
We welcome suggestions for new designs!

sunlight by wearing underneath a t-shirt. In cold weather, the pouch should
also be tucked under a jumper or jacket.
