Customer Service

How do I contact Customer Service?

Write us at info@sequoiatees.com. We will usually answer you the same day. We speak English, Dutch, some French and German.

 

Why are the Sequoia Tees unique?

We have asked the greatest artists of the world to deliver a design that the world has not seen of them before. Many artists will have their design enhanced with extra material like beads or garment. These designs will be manually silkscreen printed on the T-shirts only after we receive an order. Meaning that we don’t have any stock and that you will receive a unique piece. The design is printed on a T-shirt especially made for Sequoia Tees. The T-shirt has punched numbers in the left sleeve from 00 to 99. There are only 100 numbers per design. Having a unique design on a unique T-shirt gives you a true collectors’ item! 365 days per year, 365 different designs.

 

Can I choose my own number?

Yes, you can. As long as the number of your choice is available for this particular design. When you cannot choose your favorite number anymore it means someone else has bought it before you. Unfortunately, we cannot print a sold number again.
