100% Cotton

Blank uses two premium fabric varieties. Our cotton shirts are 100% combed ringspun cotton and are available in black and white.

Tri-Blend

Our tri-blend fabric is comprised of 50% polyester, 25% cotton, and 25% rayon and is available in heather grey and heather black.

I like that it's soft and light weight, but not see through. The length is just right, even after washing and drying! Can I have 6 more?

Blank Tester

Fits almost perfect. I'm really tall, so I could always use a bit more length so that it doesn't rise up. Overall though, it's one of the best shirts I've worn. Love the slim fit and the snugness around the arms.

Our Kickstarter Campaign

Blank is currently accepting funding via a Kickstarter campaign. The research is done, we just need production to begin. We already know how committed you are. What we need now is for you to tell your friends, family, coworkers, neighbors, and your mailman to be committed. We need your help spreading the word about Blank to everyone you know. Put #BlankbyCB on Twitter. Put it on Facebook. Heck, put it on your dog. Because we love our new tees, and so will they.

Our funding goal of $48,000 will allow us to produce 4 core colors—heather grey and heather black in the tri-blend fabric and white and black in cotton. Neutral colors are a solid basis for a wardrobe, but there’s a whole world of color to explore. So, for every $12,000 we reach beyond our initial goal, we’ll be releasing another color. Tri-blend navy was unlocked at $60,000, what will be next?

The fit is PERFECT. It's designed for my curves; I was impressed that the length was right while fitting well through the chest and waist. OMG this is a well-designed, exquisitely-comfortable T-shirt! It is tailored enough that I wore it to the office and still felt well-dressed. It didn't ride up around the neck or around the waist, which are all-too-common problems with plus-size T-shirts.

Frequently Asked Questions

Have questions? You've come to the right place. If you can't find the answer you're looking for below, feel free to email us at blank@cottonbureau.com.


I backed the Kickstarter. How do I choose my shirt(s)?
Fantastic! We will be sending out a survey shortly after the campaign ends for you to choose. Keep an eye out as we will not be able to fulfill your reward until you reply.
What fabrics do you offer?
Tri-blend: 50% Polyester, 25% Rayon, 25% Combed Ring-Spun Cotton / 30/1 single, 4-4.5oz.
Cotton: 100% Combed Ring-Spun / 30/1 single, 4-4.5oz.
Are you going to offer other fabrics in the future? Why not now?
Maybe! Our first priority is making a great, basic crewneck tee that works well for screen printing. Once we get our feet under us, it wouldn’t be too crazy to think we might experiment with other fabrics and cuts.
What sizes will you be offering?
We offer XS-5X in both men and women’s fits. In fact, we developed two separate patterns for each to make sure everything fits like it’s supposed to (one for XS–XL, one for 2X–5X). We scaled from there so Blank would comfortably fit as many shapes and sizes as possible.
What about colors?
For now, we’re focusing on 100% cotton in black and white as well as a tri-blend heather grey and black. We’d love to offer more colors, but in order to have inventory for printing and retail, we need to make sure the numbers add up. If you really want more colors, let us know. We’re open to adding stretch goals if there is demand.
What about V-necks and scoop-necks?
First things first. This Kickstarter is all about the basic crew neck tee. If all goes well—and that part’s really up to you, isn’t it?—we have every intention of adding more styles in the years ahead.
And all this is ethically made in the USA?
You betcha. We spent months researching fabric mills and factories to find a partner who valued quality and customer service as much as we do. The minute this campaign ends, it will be all hands on deck at our fabric mill and cut-and-sew factory in Los Angeles. We have it on good authority that it’s a union shop with fair wages. We even managed to shoot a bit of our Kickstarter video on location. Everything we’ve seen suggests we’re dealing with a safe, clean, and friendly facility.
When will my shirt(s) ship?
The plan is to have Blank tees in your hands by the end of the year if not sooner. We believe we can ship up to 50,000 shirts in that amount of time, so as long as this campaign doesn't exceed, hmm, does math, uhh, $1,250,000 we should be okay. If by chance you all LOVE what we’re doing to the tune of more than 50,000 tees, we’ll be shipping them just as fast as we can.
Do you ship worldwide?
We do. For everything up to the seven shirt package, we ship anywhere and everywhere. For sample packs and similar large rewards we will be shipping within the U.S. only.
Will I incur import taxes and customs fees on my order if I’m outside the US?
Very possibly. You should expect to pay upwards of 25% the value of your pledge depending on where you live. Please consult your nearest governmental authority.
You mentioned something about having customers test your samples?
We sure did. In June over 3,000 of you signed up to be testers. In the end we selected 350 people to receive samples in XS-5X, men and women’s tees. We’ve incorporated your feedback and have a final pattern ready to go. You can read more about that process here.
If I back a multi-shirt option can I choose mutliple sizes and/or colors?
Yes. Once the campaign is over and you receive our backer survey, you'll have the option to choose any shirt (men's or women's), fabric, color and size combo that you'd like. Aren't options great?

Thank You

Blank could not have made it this far without you. We sincerely appreciate all of the feedback, interest, and support we have received from customers and friends—the end product is better for it. We hope that you love everything about Blank as it has truly been created by us all. We want to also send special thanks to a few specific people that helped us get this project off the ground…
