By joining our once-a-month mailing list, you'll find out about new designs and any specials we're running. We never share your info.

Terms and Conditions
As of January 2016

We reserve the right to update or change these terms and conditions at any time without notification. Please check here if you need to know what our policies are. “We,” “ us,” and “our” (and other relevant pronouns we’ve forgotten to include) refer to Thus Spake (Thus Spake sells shirts on the website Tees For Your Head), and “you” and “your” refer to you, the user of this site.

Here’s how we know you accept and are subject to these terms and conditions: you remain on our website, and/or you order from us, and/or you sign up for our newsletter. So, thanks for accepting our terms and conditions! If you do not agree to these terms and conditions, please do not use this site.

We will change these terms from time to time, and you agree to be bound by the terms and conditions in place at the time of your order. Our only obligation is to update this page, not to provide any advance warning or notice of change. Don’t worry: we’re reasonable, you’re reasonable, and we all just want to wear t-shirts and have fun.

Typographical errors

If a Thus Spake product is mistakenly listed at an incorrect price, we reserve the right to refuse or cancel any orders placed for products listed at the incorrect price, whether or not the order has been confirmed and your credit card charged. If your credit card has already been charged for the purchase and your order is canceled, we will issue a credit to your credit card account in the amount of the incorrect price.

Information collection and use


We obviously need your name, address, and payment information to process an order from you. We will retain your personal information if you choose, but we will never retain your credit card number or any bank account information.

Our credit card processing is handled by a third party, and they must also have your personal information in order to process your payment. You can choose to retain a name and address profile on our website.

Newsletter or other marketing communication

We will give you the option to receive email from us that is not related to ordering from our website. We encourage you to sign up for our newsletter because this is where we tell you the super secret discount codes!

We will retain your name and address (either online or physical address, depending on the communication in question) in order to communicate with you. If you opt out of this later, we will discard your name and address from our mailing list. Your account, if you choose to keep one on our site, will remain.

Age-related and publicity issues

This site is not intended for children under 13, and we do not want to collect or share any of their personal information. There may occasionally be mature themes or remarks on tee shirts or shirt descriptions.

We do not share any information on any user, regardless of age, with other companies for the purposes of marketing. The only information we share is in order to process an order from you (the credit card processor and the host of our website will require access to data).
  • We do not provide information about our users to others except through photos (with captions) of our lovely customers wearing our shirts or holding other Thus Spake products.
  • If you provide a photo of yourself with a Thus Spake product, you are no longer protected by the non-celebrity’s right to privacy. If you do not feel it is safe to make your photo public on our website or another website such as Facebook, with or without a real name associated, please do not submit a photo to us.
  • By submitting a photo, you agree that you are giving Thus Spake the photo, without compensation to you, and that it can be used in a newsletter, in advertising or publicity, or some other appropriate and reasonable place.
  • By placing an order with Thus Spake, you represent that you are old enough and able to understand and participate in a legal contract. You send money, we send a t-shirt or a bag or a print—that’s a contract.
