TeeFury announced a few changes today. One that people are happy about and one that they are not. Of course nobody is happy when the price of something goes up and that is what has happened. TeeFury is no longer the home of the $10 t-shirt. The increasing price of cotton has forced their hand I guess.
The other announcement is the increase in choices. You are now able to choose from a selection of colors which I am sure will vary with the design. Today’s Supernatural and Scooby Doo mashup tee comes in black, brown and navy. A dull way to start but perhaps they are just testing the waters but I think it will be a hit but even if it’s not it will help silence some of the “I’d buy it but I don’t wear [insert color here] t-shirts” complaints.
And there are now larger sizes to choose from up to 3XL for Men and 2XL for women. Prices will be even higher for sizes 2XL and above.
I have a feeling we will see more changes in the future too because recently I feel that competitors are encroaching on TeeFury’s territory and offering more options. For example, ShirtPunch, while it still only offers their daily tees in one color, there are three daily tees to choose from and you can also get the design on other products. Here is the selection of products you can get with today’s ShirtPunch:
- short-sleeve t-shirt
- long-sleeve t-shirt
- fitted t-shirt
- pullover hoodie
- zip hoodie
- phone cases
- ipad covers
- game console decals
- laptop decals.
That’s quite a list of options. It’s innovate or get left behind.
My problem with this is that the 2XL used to be the same price. I think if they wanted to start upping the price by a dollar for the 3XL, thats fine, but by two dollars? And now the shipping is $3. So a place where I used to get shirts for about $12.50 a pop is now going to cost me $16 to get, I might as well by novelty tees from Hot Topic or some other place like that. Its too bad, I was, not ten minutes ago, about to buy a tee-fury shirt and once I’d finished with the cart and putting in all my shipping info the total came to $16. Its no longer a reasonable buy.
