We'd love to thank you for the support throughout the years. 2019 is an important year for us at RIPT as we celebrated our 10th anniversary in June. It's been a fun and crazy ride and we couldn't have done it without you! We are excited to announce some major changes at RIPT Apparel.
- New basic and premium men’s and women’s tees.
- Flat Rate Shipping. No more surprises when you check out.
- New Navigation. It's now easier to shop for your favorite fandoms.
New basic and premium tees
Here at RIPT it is our goal to offer the best pop culture tees at the best possible price. Unfortunately over the past year we've had a supply issue with our t-shirt vendor that has lead to us being inconsistent in the product we deliver to you. We worked hard to resolve this with our vendor yet without luck. So, In order to provide a high quality and consistent product going forward, we've decided to eliminate that vendor.
We will no longer print on Tultex branded tees. Going forward you will have 2 options for daily and non daily tees (Mens and Womens). Gildan 2000 Mens (2000L Womens) and Next Level 3600 (3900 Womens). Gildan 2000 tees will be priced starting at $14 for dailies and $25 for non-dailies. Next Level 3600 will start at $17 for dailies and $28 for non dailies.
We also have switched printers so our print quality will be a major step up going forward as well. We’re excited for you to see our new products.
Flat rate shipping
As I'm sure you know with the rise of Amazon over the past decade, shipping costs have risen each year. Here at RIPT Apparel we've resisted the urge to increase rates and have absorbed these increases for the past 6 years. Unfortunately we can't afford to do this any longer. Shipping rates will change for US customers as follows:
- $4.50 flat rate shipping for 1 tee or tank top. Each additional garment will be just $2. So, any order with more than 1 item will actually be cheaper with these new rates!
- Hoodies and crewnecks shipping start at $6.50 and each additional will be $2.50
- Posters ship for $6 for up to 5 posters
- Canvas Wrap shipping starts at $6 and each additional is $3.00.
Daily deals will always be at the forefront of what RIPT Apparel does but did you know that we have over 1,000 designs that are available at all times? We’ve made it easier to shop using our new navigation. Just select one of the new headers i.e. 80’s, 90’s, Comics, etc. and see the different fandoms that feature our parody and mashup designs. It now makes it super simple to shop anime posters for example.
Price increases are never fun but we wanted to be transparent with you, the lifeblood of our small little company. We hope that you will continue to support RIPT Apparel and the thousands of artists all around the world who receive a portion of the revenue from each sale.
Thanks for your support and understanding!
