If you’re anything like me, you have at least one hard-to-shop-or teen on your holiday list (I happen to have three!). A trip through the mall is confusing at best… Hollister? Aeropostal? Maybe American Eagle? The concept of cool-one-day-repulsive-the-next is a veritable minefield for the well intentioned mom!
What to do? I found the perfect answer at RIPT Apparel!
RIPT Apparel provides artists and designers all over the world the opportunity to submit their T-shirt designs through an online design submission form. If selected, the artist is paid $1 for every shirt sold that day (although artists actually maintain ownership rights).
And the firm has a unique one-a-day sales model. Basically, once a T-shirt has outlived its 24-hours sales cycle, it is laid to Rest-In-Peace within the Shirt Graveyard, hence RIP-T’s. Clever!
I think that this is a really exciting opportunity to create a potential collector’s item — there’s nothing quite like being there at the start of a great artist’s career. And, as opposed to a Hot Topic T-shirt, your teen is guaranteed not to himself “coming and going” at every social function.
But the best part? Not only are these T’s a great fashion statement, at only $10 per T-shirt, they are also extremely affordable! RIPT Apparel T’s are high quality, made from 100% ring-spun cotton. They are also pre-shrunk (a huge bonus).
The only hard part? Choosing from all of the great designs!
