Do what you love, and don't ask questions.

The founding members of The Back Pack grew up in Montana and went to school at the same fine arts department in Missoula. This is where we started working together on short original plays that combined movement, music, dance, and theater. We continued to expand our artistic horizons from performance art and theater, to design and fabrication, which is how we fund our collective.

The Back Pack Artist Collective has settled into its new home in East Austin. We are home to The Back Pack Shoppe and Theater Troupe, as well as several artists, musicians, and teachers. The warehouse serves as a workshop and rehearsal space as well as a gallery for artists in the area to work at an affordable rate. The goal is to build a community of collaborators working in the same space to discover things they couldn't have alone.

Returns and exchanges
Refunds are very welcome. If there is ever a problem, send a message and we will get the process rolling. Any broken/damaged/faulty/wrong sized goods can be exchanged for a replacement, swapped out for another product from the shop, or money returned. Shipping costs paid for by the the buyer.
All forms of payment accepted, other than first born children. There is no set deadline for payment, but please pay as promptly as you can because it's the nice thing to do. Everybody likes nice people. If there ever an issue, don't hesitate to shoot a message this direction.

Cancellations will be refunded in full as long as they are requested prior to shipping (obviously, otherwise that's a return). Just ask nicely.
All items are shipped via USPS, unless an alternative method is specifically asked for. Everything ships as soon as possible, which means for most items this will be within 1 or 2 work days after payment is received. If the item is made to order, it may take a few extra days.
