Frequently Asked Questions | Liberty Maniacs

Q: How long does it take to get my order?

A: 2-10 days, depending on the shipping method you choose.

Most products on LibertyManiacs.com are made to order and are shipped factory direct. What that means is that when you place an order for a shirt, the Maniacs Team picks, prints, and packs the product just for you using state-of-the-art printing and fulfillment. The upshot: You get a higher quality product designed and produced in the US under strict quality control. 

FedEx orders are typically fulfilled within 1 day, then they're in FedEx's capable hands. 

USPS orders usually are fulfilled in 2.5 business days on average. (Note: Average fulfillment times for 2014 and 2015 were 2.5 business days.)

High volume periods such as Christmas can take longer. Check out more about shipping here.

Q: What does Unisex mean?

A: That's a tough one. It's not a new classification for Uncle Fester or Pat from Saturday Night Live. We're pretty sure wearing the shirt will not give you special limited immunity from state bathroom laws, either. 

As far as we know, unisex items are designed to be worn for both men and women. Unisex items will likely be a true fit for men and a slightly loose fit for women.  That is, unless you sport some serious man boobs and are a curvy dude. Then maybe a ladies fit will work. Who knows? The bottom line is that we're humans and we come in all sorts of wonderful shapes and sizes. The term unisex is just there to let you know the article can be for everyone. Be sure to check our sizing section or the product page sizing information to make the best choice for you. (Or contact us.)

Q: Are you a front created by the NSA to collect the names and addresses of patriots, dissidents, rebels, and liberty-lovers across the globe?

A. No. But because of the work hours we put in we have been accused of being vampires.  (Or zombies before coffee in the morning.)


Q: How do I buy something without giving personal information?

A: We're not exactly a pizza joint, so you can't drive up and pick up your shirt with cash. We'll need someplace to ship. We do however offer Paypal, Bitcoin, and Guest checkout for those of you that don't want us to have an account with us.


Q: How do I log in as a guest?

A: Follow these instructions posted on this page.


Q: Can I cancel my order after it was made?

A: Certainly. The best thing to do is contact us and let us know as soon as possible so that the item doesn't ship.  That way refunds are fast. After 24 hours or so, after the product ships, it will likely be necessary to go through the return process.

Q: I'm getting a ZIP Code Validation Error when I try and consummate my order. What should I do?

 A: The result of the CVC, address, and zip/postal code checks are ones that we pass directly through from a cardholder's bank. If the zip check has failed, it's because the bank is telling us that the zip code does not match the one it has on file.

If a cardholder has recently moved, it may take their bank a while to have the correct zip code on file for them. If the cardholder hasn't moved recently, they may wish to call their bank and confirm that the information their bank has on file is correct.

Q: Is everything in your store made in the United States?

A: Everything is designed, finished, and printed in the U.S.A by Americans. Though if you live in Europe you might actually get something made in Europe now that we've spread our wings a bit. Some things like sourced apparel have been imported, however. Made in the U.S.A. items will be clearly marked for the most part. We do have those options and often can accommodate you if you email us if you want something that is made in the USA completely. They do - surprise, surprise - typically cost a bit more.


Q: What are your Business Values?

A: Honesty, quality, liberty, and fun. We're big on ethics. In fact, if you ask us we'll probably bore you to death with our views on things like business sustainability and market ethics. As a family business that at its core celebrates humanity and questions authority, living our philosophy is a pretty big deal. Like a family, trustworthiness and honest dealing are the foundations of lasting success, so we are constantly trying to improve, grow, and live up to your expectations. 


Q: Are You sweatshop free?

A: Absolutely. All our items are sourced from the most reputable names in the business. Our printing is done in Charlotte, North Carolina and Los Angeles, California, but the design of our products is done in Minnesota. One thing important to us as an independent brand is that at every stage of production our values are reflected in our product. 


Q:  Are You Certified Fair Trade?

A: No - Fair Trade regulation only applies to the import/export of raw materials. Since we import/export finished products and print them domestically we do not qualify for Fair Trade certification. For more information about Fair Trade, visit www.transfairusa.org.

Q: Are you Free Trade Certified?

A: You're just making stuff up now, aren't you? There is no such thing as free trade certification, but we sell on the Internet, which is about the closest thing if there was.


Q: I used to buy your stuff on Cafepress and Zazzle. Are you guys still on there?

A: Yes. Actually with more products than ever. Just head over to our marketplaces section to check out what's new in our shops!


Q: Are you right wing extremists or something?

A: No. We're liberty maniacs.There's a considerable difference.


Q: Are you left wing extremists?

A: No. We're liberty maniacs.There's a considerable difference.


Q: Are you guys libertarians?

A: Sure. But labels are better for clothes than people. Don't get too hung up on them.


Q: What's the difference between a libertarian and a librarian? 

A: One is likely being made obsolete by the Internet. The other is arguably becoming more influential because of the Internet. Both can be pretty hot, though.


Q: What's a libertarian?

A: A libertarian is the type of person that typically thinks people should be permitted to run their lives as they wish as long as they're not hurting anyone else. A good many believe using violence and coercion to achieve social goals is a pretty dumb way to go about things. 


Q: Do you guys hate Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders or something?

A: No. Not particularly. We make jokes about everybody. Even people we admire aren't safe. The deal is that both Hillary and Bernie's campaigns' took issue with some of our parodies, sending lawyers after us, and we considered it bullying behavior because the arguments they used had no ground in the law. Remember what your parents taught you to do when faced with a bully? We figured that advice is pretty universal at all ages. 

Q: Do you guys Hate Donald Trump?

A: No. Our mothers told us not to hate. We love our mothers, so we listen like good boys and girls. We make fun of politics and politicians, so in many ways, Donald Trump represents a golden gift from the Universe to us. 

Q: I'm a wholesaler/retailer/Mark Cuban; can I buy from you in bulk?

A: In the immortal words of Snoop Doggy Dogg; fo shizzle. Just contact us or head over to our wholesale section to get more information. But to save everyone precious time we don't do consignment. We just do old fashioned drop shipping.


Q: What's with your blog?

A: The web log, which is a format that was popular like eight years ago, is a place you'll find daily product descriptions, musings by our founder, special announcements, humor, weird asides, raw stupidity, new art, features about cool designers we like, and other stuff like that. If you're more of the Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter type, we have those too.

Q: Do you have a privacy policy? Is it a secret?

A: Yes, we do have a privacy policy, and no, it isn't a secret. You can read it here. Generally speaking we don't sell your information or pass it on to people without your expressed authorization. 


Q: Did Jeffrey Epstein kill himself?

A: No. Arguably the most experienced and famous medical examiner in America was there for the autopsy and says so himself


Q: Where are you guys from?

A: The arctic tundra of Minnesota. Recently ranked the best place to live in the United States, mind you. So hold the damn jokes. At least until Winter. However, we ship from a few places in the United States so that you get your stuff faster. 


Q: What's with this stupid tax that's showing up on my order?  There are no taxes here on internet purchases!

A: There might not be taxes on an item, but if it's showing up, it's likely that your local overlords put some weird tax on shipments. Our tax collection and ordering system is updated daily for every single stupid tax law for every single state, county, town, and zip code in the united states. Believe you me, if you didn't have to pay it, we wouldn't charge it on your order.

A: Good question. Give us a shout from our contact page and we'll figure out the issue.
