What is Share Books Note Hate about?
Share Books Not Hate is an online store that sells T-shirts, hoodies, stickers, notebooks, and more with fun designs that promote your love of sharing books and reading. We are dedicated to the right for everyone in the world to have books and be able to choose the books they want to read. The only censorship we condone is toward hate speech, because hate has no place in a successful society. Hate is defeated by empathy, and empathy is grown through understanding. What builds understanding more and anything else? Books! So that’s why we’re all about sharing books not hate. We also honor those in our society who share books. Every quarter we randomly choose a nominated librarian and give them a gift card to the store, and at the end of every year, we give a portion of our profit to a non-profit organization that promotes literacy and books.
What do you do to help the world?
At Share Books Not Hate, we honor those in our society who share books. Every quarter we randomly choose a nominated librarian and give them a gift card to the store, and at the end of every year, we give a portion of our profit to a non-profit organization that promotes literacy and books. We also share book recommendations ourselves and resources on how you can share books too.
What products do you offer?
Share Books Not Hate offers a wide variety of products, including but not limited to T-shirts, hoodies, stickers, notebooks, tote bags, and mugs, in a variety of designs. We add new designs every week, all with the focus on sharing books and reading.
Where are your products made?
All of our products are created especially for you when you order them, which stops overproduction and waste. Our products are available around the world. To cut down on shipping distances, our products are manufactured as close to you as possible. All our products that are ordered in the U.S. are printed in the U.S. Orders outside the U.S. are printed as close to your location as possible. Most of the base items are also produced in U.S., but some are purchased from overseas. Details are included in the description of each product.
How good is the quality of your products?
At Share Books Not Hate, we don’t just want our products to make a statement; we want them to be of the highest quality and comfortable, so we go out of our way to make sure they are. We use our products ourselves and love wearing our T-shirts and hoodies. They even stand up to laundry well. While our apparel comes pre-shrunk, to preserve their quality, we recommend washing your items in cold water and drying them on low heat.
What sizes do you offer?
All our adult apparel is available in sizes from XS to 5XL. Check the size chart on each product’s description for measurements. Please note: Some colors might not be available in all sizes. We do our best to offer alternatives, but we don’t have control over our manufacturer’s inventory.
Do you offer discounts?
Yes! Often! The best way to hear about our sales and giveaways is to click here and subscribe to our enewsletter. Are you a librarian or know a wonderful librarian? Every quarter we send a $25 gift card to a randomly chosen librarian from our nominee list. Click here to nominate a librarian.
SHIPPING & RETURNS
What are your shipping rates?
Shipping rates are dependent on the weight and distance of your order. For example, the shipping rate for one T-shirt in the U.S. is $3.99. Your shipping costs will be calculated when you check out.
How long will it take to get my order?
Delivery times are dependent on production and your location. Everything you order is created specifically for you when you order it, which cuts down on overproduction and waste. It generally takes 2 to 5 days for your items to be created. Shipping time is generally 2 to 6 business days in the U.S. So your items should be delivered around 10 to 12 days after you ordered them. If you’re buying our products for a special occasion, we recommend ordering at least 2 weeks in advance.
How can I track my order?
When your order is shipped, you will receive an email with a tracking number. If you don’t receive this email within a week of your order, email us at email@example.com and we’ll look into it for you.
Can I change my order if I made a mistake?
We get it. Mistakes are part of life. If you made a mistake on your order, email us within 12 hours of your order being placed and we’ll do our best to get it changed. Please know, your items are made specifically for you when you order them, and to get your items to you as quickly as possible, our manufacturer begins the production process quickly. If the production process has already started, however, we won’t be able to change your order.
Can I cancel my order?
Cancellations are sometimes needed. Your items are made specifically for you when you order them, and to get your items to you as quickly as possible, our manufacturer begins the production process quickly. If you need to cancel your order, email us within 12 hours of your order being placed and we’ll do our best to get it cancelled. If the production process has already started, however, we won’t be able to cancel it.

I think you’ve violated my copyright.
We value our designs — and have a lot of fun creating them for you. All of our designs are either created in-house by our own designers using artwork that we’ve created or that we’ve paid for the permission to use, or are designs that we’ve received permission to use. If you believe that one of our designs violates your copyright, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the details and we will investigate immediately.
