We have some great news and some…. *mumbles* not… as great news.
I’m going to start with the ladder. No, that’s not right. The latter. We don’t have a ladder. Well we do, but… that’s not important. Unfortunately, for the first time since our inception four and a half years ago, we are increasing some of the prices of our apparel. On average, our t-shirts and apparel in our current collections are going by up $1.
I wish that I could say that we were raising our prices because aliens landed on Earth and injected a universal currency into the market that inflated known currencies by about… $1 per shirt (in Arizona money).
Or that a parallel dimension opened up, slinging ninjas and dragons into our warehouse somehow only disrupting the costs of blank apparel, supplies, warehousing, shipping, and staffing by about… $1 per shirt (in Arizona money).
But the truth is, the costs of blank apparel, supplies, warehousing, staffing, and shipping continue to increase and we have no desire to sacrifice the quality of our apparel, the service that we provide our community, or raise our shipping prices. In fact, despite an annual average of a 9.9% increase over each of the last four years, we have never raised our shipping prices.
But it is this commitment to quality and our community, that forces our hands to raise our prices from $12 to $13 per shirt.
We’re very sorry for the inconvenience! We do plan to offer coupons including $1 off t-shirts exclusively through our Newsletter to help offset the increase for our community. Not signed up for our newsletter? Sign up by clicking here.
