Hi Comrade :)
Oh man, we are so very excited to be hand-making your order. Here's a bit about our process:
Soooo, we are not a factory. We are super not Amazon. Not even a little bit. We're your partner in the revolution against fascism its cause, capitalism. We much prefer that role over any other possible role. Because we like you. And we like fighting along with you, shoulder to shoulder.
We're not here to make money. In 2020 our graphic designer will begin taking a very (VERY!) small salary, but as of this posting all labor is donated.
Why? Whoa, that's so kind of you to ask. Did you read How to Win Friends and Influence People? You're a natural at this.
Anyway, why: We started The Left Fist because we couldn't find the kind of proletariat-agitating propaganda we wanted to slap up, pin, and wear. So, as makers, we started making our own. And then we wanted to share it with anyone else looking for the same. Since the very inception, we wanted to use proceeds to fund antifascist actions, bail support, and mutual aid.
Turnaround time: We make all stickers and pins in a two to-three week cycle. That means you can expect your order to ship anytime from immediately to three weeks exactly from the order date. While we totally understand your excitement, trust that emailing a check-in on your order before that time is up is not going to make it any faster. In fact, it slows us down and eats up donated labor time. It's best to go ahead and expect a 3 week turnaround. Leave us room to delight you with an earlier delivery :)
We ship all pins and stickers first class. Otherwise each shipment would be $12+ to ship. But, heads up! First class doesn’t have customer-facing tracking numbers. When you get a shipped notification from us, trust that it’s on its way and will be there very soon!
Clothing has a turnaround time of ten days maximum, usually less (unless a certain size/color/design is totally out, but that is extremely rare and corrected usually within those ten days). Clothing is always shipped before and separate from pins and stickers.
In addition to agitating the proletariat (and, starting in 2020, paying a leftist laborer), every order helps fund antifascist direct actions, bail support, and mutual aid. You partner with us to make the world a better place.
Thank you for looking, ordering, and sharing :)

The Left Fist Team
