Brand Goals & Transparency

Brand Goals

Sizing

LuciePrints main goal is to provide sustainable and size-inclusive products. On launch, nearly all of our products go up to size 3XL or higher. LuciePrints does not explicitly gender clothing. We believe you should wear whatever makes you comfortable and happy. We provide comprehensive size charts that use computer learning to find you the best size choices for your body.  

Sustainability

LuciePrints also believes in sustainability. We use waterless printing methods and two of our products are made of 100% sustainable materials. LuciePrints offsets all carbon from shipping with Shopify's Offset app. Your purchase helps fund the Jarí Para Forest Conservation Project in the Amazon Rainforest.

What is dropshipping?

Dropshipping is a commercial fulfilment approach in which the products a store sells are not stored on site. When a store offers a product with a dropshipping model, the product is bought and sent to the buyer straight from a third party. Therefore, the seller does not deal directly with the product. The greatest distinction between dropshipping and conventional retail models is that the seller does not stock items themselves. Instead, a third party – generally a wholesaler and a manufacturer – buys an inventory as required to fulfill the orders. In the case of print on demand services, LuciePrint's manufacturers send items directly from the factory.

What is sublimation printing?

Sustainability in the Fashion Industry: Dye-Sublimation

Dye sublimation is a digital printing technique that uses heat to transfer dye onto materials (fabrics). The sublimation process creates pressure turning ink/dye into a gas that fuses onto the surface. The process does require the use of non-biodegradable materials like polyester but creates no wastewater - meaning that no water is contaminated in the process.
