It doesn’t matter where you are in the world, you’ve probably been bombarded by a torrent of GDPR opt in emails recently. If you don’t know what GDPR is, then in a nutshell, it’s the European Union laws around user data and consent. It pretty much means that you control a load more of your data around the web. Here’s what we’ve been doing to meet the standards, right after a picture of a t-shirt to make this blog more interesting:
2. Made a policy for dealing with user data requests – you can ask us to delete your information, or ask for a copy of it. We’re not Facebook, so there’s no automatic download / delete button, but we will do this for you in a reasonable timeframe.
3. Removed some third party services that track your information, that we no longer use.
4. Changed all our email sign in buttons to be opt in rather than opt out.
5. We’ll only send you emails when you’ve explicitly consented to receiving them – so that means for example, if you’ve signed up to a newsletter. We’ve seen a load of emails asking you to resign up for various newsletters, but we don’t need to do this if you’ve already consented to be on our list in the past.
6. We also send you an email if you’ve done something that means you’d reasonably expect to receive an email related to that thing – eg when you sign up; when you request a quote or artwork; when your payment goes through; when your order ships.
This is what we’ve done so far – but GDPR is an ongoing project, so we’ll continue to improve the site for you and your data.
We’ve recently been running a series of webinars teaching people how to get more users and customers by giving away t-shirts and other promotional merchandise. It’s a tried and trusted method, and in the video below our CEO breaks it down to help you understand how you can do it in a risk-free way.
In this short, informative recording, we looked at some great case-studies of people who have generated literally millions of dollars for their business by giving away free t-shirts, as well as given away some great tips and tricks for how you can try these methods basically risk free.
At Ramp, we’re known for printing great quality screen-printed custom apparel for teams,events, groups and companies with free shipping in UK, Europe and USA. Just check out our amazing reviews on Google and Facebook!
From analysing case studies of businesses that have done it brilliantly (and generated millions of dollars of revenue from it!), to understanding the return on investment of t-shirts (or any other type of merch or swag), Neil will run you through everything you need to consider in order to make sure you win new business, and make people love what you do!
The webinars are conducted on a weekly basis, at different times to accommodate every time zone. If you’d like to know when the next webinar is, enter your email above.
If you can’t tune in, don’t worry – a recording of the webinar will be sent to you afterwards.
This is the story of how we emailed 50,000 companies, with the “best cold email ever”, offering the services of Ramp, the smartest, simplest, custom t-shirts ordering site in the world. Each sales email featured a photo of me, Ramp’s CEO, wearing their company t-shirt so that they could see what they would be buying. And whether they bought custom t-shirts, or custom printed hoodies, it drove an incredible amount of traffic and customers our way.

(UPDATE 2 – this blogpost has been shared so widely it’s now been copied/rewritten in French and German).
UPDATE 3 – Neil is being asked to speak about this campaign at various events and conferences. So far it’s been really well received, with audiences describing it as hilarious and insightful (honest!). Drop us a line if you’re interested.
All businesses want to create a sense of uniformity and brand recognition. They also want their message and brand to be widely spread by their team and their customers. What better way to do it than through the use of custom business slogan t-shirts?
Now, we get it. “Business slogans” don’t sound like the most exciting artwork for custom t-shirts, but it’s ultimately all about the appeal and message of your slogan. Get it right and it can be hugely memorable.
The Welsh capital city of Cardiff (the fastest growing capital city in Europe, fact fans!), is home to Swn Festival. It’s an amazing city-wide festival where over the course of a few days every year you trot between many events, discovering incredible new and established acts from a wide array of genres. This year we caught everything doomrock to dubstep, and punk to psych.

Offering t-shirts as a reward for crowdfunding is a great idea. It makes your backers feel good and it’s free publicity too – we still wear promo t-shirts years after we were given them. But there’s plenty of traps you can fall into. Here’s 5 T-Shirt Reward Tips for a Successful Kickstarter and Indiegogo Campaign.
There’s plenty of guides about how to succeed in general at crowdfunding – we’re not going to go into detail in this blog but here’s a few important insights:
Good idea! But whether you are getting them for your company, for a weekend away with friends, or as promo giveaways, it definitely pays to spend a few minutes reviewing these questions before ordering custom t-shirts and spending your cash.
Here’s a few things to consider. Hopefully they will save you both time AND money.
