RIPT Apparel was started almost 8 years ago by 3 friends and $3,000. Since then we've grown to a team of 20 in Chicago, IL that ships it's products all over the world. The past couple of years have presented a lot challenges running a small business. We've done our best to keep prices as low as possible and haven't raised the price of our daily T-Shirt deals for 2 years.
Due to increases of minimum wage, property taxes, and shipping rates we need need to increase our prices.
Starting January 1, 2017 prices on our daily designs were increased from $11 to $13 on the following:
- Men's T-shirts, sizes Small through XL
- All Women's/Juniors sizes
Not only will this price increase help us maintain and grow as a company, but it will also put a little extra cash into our artists' pockets. Artists receive 10% of revenue from designs that they sell at RIPT Apparel. Now they will receive $1.30 per tee sold v.s. $1.10 they were getting before.
We thank you for your support over the years and for your understanding during this transition. We welcome any feedback you might have.
