Frequently Asked Questions
Who designed the t-shirt?
Emily Wallace created the Pint Hound. She’s an illustrator (and also a scholar on pimento cheese and mayonnaise) based in Durham, NC.
What kind of dog is the Pint Hound?
Pint Hound is technically a Plott Hound which happens to be the official state dog of North Carolina.
Are the t-shirts really grown in North Carolina?
Yes, so glad you asked! There is nothing on the market like the Cotton of the Carolinas t-shirt brand. TS Designs is leading the industry by bringing the entire process, from dirt to shirt, back within arm’s reach – or at least, a day’s drive. Everything happens within 600 miles. It’s not just USA made; it’s Carolina made.
Are Ladies style t-shirts available?
Yes, we’ve got unisex and ladies styles, so take your pick!
Can I be the best friend/son/daughter ever and buy a membership as a gift?
Of course! Just before you place your order, there’s a spot where you can add Notes. Just jot down “this is a gift” and we’ll know. Also, you might want to print out a Gift Certificate.
