Tako Kichi Int’l


The phrase “Tako Kichi” (kite crazy) has become part of the kiter’s language and culture. While its origins and the exact translation may leave some room for debate, it’s been around since at least the late 1970s.

The front of our shirt features the Japanese Kanji for Tako Kichi, which has been subtly distressed to give a bit of a “lived-in” look. The back has eighty translations of the phrase ‘kite crazy’ in languages from around the world.

Shipping & Production

I just received an email (8 June) from our t-shirt printer that we should be expecting production and shipping delays of up to 2 weeks. This includes any orders already in the fulfillment queue.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but due to supply chain problems, we are currently unable to ship t-shirt orders outside the US. United States orders should expect delays in both production and shipping times.

We charge a flat rate for shipping t-shirts, depending on your location. In the US, your first shirt ships via USPS for $3.50, and each additional shirt adds $1.50. To Canada, the first shirt is $5.75, and $2.00 for each additional shirt. To the UK, the rate is $6.50/$2.25. For the rest of the world, the shipping rate is $10.50/$2.50

Our shirts are digitally printed to order in the US. It usually takes 2-4(+) business days to fulfill the order, and U.S. shipping should take another 3-4(+) days. International orders will take longer in transit. The actual time will depend on the destination, customs, etc. Recent international orders have taken 2-3 weeks. If international customers will please remind me, I will send you a tracking link.
