It’s what’s going on deep inside the core of a star that causes it to shine.
Every professional dancer, musician, scientist or athlete, knows the hard work done behind the scenes isn’t always easy...or fun. But wearers of the MOTIVATION tee understand this: it’s the hard work done when no one is watching that will make you brilliant.

Each t-shirt arrives packaged with a coordinating bookmark to make it a meaningful and memorable gift.
Not sure what size to order?
Simply measure against a similar item that currently fits your child and compare with the measurements in our size chart.
All measurements are taken with garments lying flat.
Lay the chosen garment on a flat surface, smooth out any wrinkles.
Chest: Measure across chest from side seam to side seam just below the armpit.
Length: Measure from the point where the shoulder seam meets the neckline ribbing, straight down to the bottom of the shirt.
Our children's t-shirts are a standard fit. If your child prefers loose-fitting shirts, we recommend choosing the next size up.
Sizing for our newest designs CONTRIBUTION, CREATIVITY, PATIENCE and STRENGTH has been updated. XXS, XS and S in these new designs are now equivalent to size 2, 4 & 6 rather than 5, 6, 7.
Please check size guides carefully before ordering.
|*NEW* Updated Sizing|
Author t-shirts are cut by hand and sewn in small batches in Kolkata, India by our friends at Joyya (formerly Freeset).
While there may be slight measurement variances between shirts, finished shirts are tested to ensure any differences are minor and will not affect fit.
A new shirt can be expected to experience 3% shrinkage after normal washing and drying.
Wear + Care
To help your clothes (and our planet) enjoy a longer, better life, we recommend washing printed and dark items in cold water, hanging to dry or drying on a cool setting.
