Frequently Asked Questions
Who are you?
We are Home State Apparel, a living-wage apparel company in Greensboro, NC. We are guided by a few simple core principles: to provide the highest quality products, deliver exceptional customer service, and to have fun doing it! We began in 2011 with the original North Carolina home design and quickly expanded to include all 50 States and select countries. We carry a variety of apparel and home decor designed to celebrate the feeling of "home." We invite others: join us!
We take pride in making things by hand: screen-printing our shirts in-house using eco-friendly water-based inks, carefully cutting and placing decals, loading and unloading our studio kiln. We strive to use sustainable, environmentally safe materials manufactured in the USA whenever possible.
We have inspired many imitators, but we are the Original.
Did I see you guys on Shark Tank?
No, that was not us. We are the original creators of the Home shirt. The company you saw on Shark Tank is one of our many imitators.
I'm local! Do you have a pick-up location in Greensboro?
Unfortunately, no, we do not allow online customers to order online and pick up in person. Although our warehouse is located in Greensboro, North Carolina, we do not have a place to greet customers and have them pick up their products. We apologize for this inconvenience in advance!
What are your production times?
Please be mindful that we make most of our items by hand as they are ordered. Most orders take around 5-7 business days to be processed, made, and shipped. Retail production day is every Friday, so if you order before Wednesday evening at midnight, your order will be made and shipped on that Friday. However, if you order on Thursday or Friday, then your order won't be made and shipped until the Friday of the following week.
Do you offer wholesale?
Yes, we do offer wholesale! Please refer to our Wholesale website www.homestatewholesale.com for more information and instructions on how to get in touch with us. We're always looking for more customers and we look forward to the prospect of doing business with you!
