Pricing Changes

As some of you may have noticed, we increased all of our regular pricing to $24.99 (as compared to $23.99 previously) and premium to $34.99 (previously $33.99). If you wear 2XL or 3XL, there was no change. This pricing change may or may not remain - I haven't made a decision yet. That said, I thought I would explain  why it changed.

I need helpand people tend to want money for their work. Plus, we're still ~40% cheaper than our competitors, have a new office space, and overhead + expenses have increased a lot overall since launch.

Pricing has been a continuous learning experience for me. Originally I set it WAY too low (particularly on shipping) and I was basically breaking even until around November (when we added a more dynamic shipping cost structure). We still charge under what it costs to ship to most international countries and it maxes out at like $24.

Historically I have subsidized our prices to be extremely competitive through my own time (aka all-nighters). Don't take that as a complaint - I fucking love what I do but it needs to evolve. I still plan on working most waking hours but it has had an impact on our service, my health, and growth potential.

My personal next "role" will focus on the customer experience, shirtposts community, and future developments. To do this, I need to hire in-house designers and customer service/administrative people, and someone to do marketing.

We are still offering these premium products for a lot cheaper than our nearest competitors. They are charging $39.95 and $49.84 (wtf) for t-shirts, $39.00 and $49.84 (wtf) for tank tops, $69.95 and $69.84 for hoodies.

We're still about half as expensive on t-shirts and tanks. Our hoodies are handcrafted in Las Vegas using high-end materials and are $20 less. I've bought their products to compare and our hoodies are  way nicer. I'm really proud of everything so far and that's the gist of it.

I want your feedback on our changes! Leave a comment or email anon@shirtwascash.com.

Just a quick update on product designs...
"When will design XYZ be a hoodie?!"

We will be dropping new designs and current designs  for additional product-types every other Thursday now that the 5th design contest is over. So, if you are looking for different crop tops, mousepads, hats, or sweaters - check back to see what's new!

I have to do tiered and limited launches like this because... as mentioned above... I am still doing all of the design work and website development myself. As I hire people, this will get a lot quicker and better.

How To Measure Like A Boss

The easiest way to guarantee you order the right size is to take a regular t-shirt in your closet that fits you perfectly and lay it flat on the floor or bed. Make sure it’s stretched out nice and flat. Then measure the chest right below the armpits to get your Chest measurement, and from the highest point on the shoulder all the way to the bottom hem to get your Length measurement.

In between sizes? Always best to order a size up, but remember this shirt does not shrink. Looking for a more slim fit? Try ordering one size down, but make sure the Length measurement won’t be too short.

How To Measure Your Pup

Doggos are a little tricky to measure properly, so please follow these instructions. If you are in between sizes, order the closest size matching the "Length" measurement of your dog (i.e. if dog’s Length is 17.5", order the size M).

If your dog is super ripped or extra fluffy, you may need a size up.

Length: This is the most important measurement. Measure from the top of the back (base of the neck right below where the dog collar sits), all the way down to the base of the tail, along the dog’s backbone.

Neck: Measure around the girth of the neck at the middle point of the neck, usually where the dog collar sits.

Chest: Measure around the girth of the chest, right behind the front legs. This should be the largest part of the chest.
