Open for business!

Latest update – 8th April 2020

You’ve no doubt received countless emails and updates from your favourite businesses about how they’re dealing with the Coronavirus situation. So we’re keeping this super short, sweet, and simple.

Ramp T-shirts in a box, ready for delivery!

We’re open for business, and will continue to work hard (and safely), to get your orders to you for as long as we’re legally (and safely) able to.

However, it’s worth noting that our supply chain is slightly disrupted, so things are slightly slower than normal, and we can’t promise to hit rush order deadlines. If you have any queries about deadlines, just say hello in the chatbox, or email us on support@ramptshirts.com

One final thing – it’s known that Covid-19 can live for up to 24 hours on cardboard, and it’s thought that the same is true of cotton and polyester. It’s highly unlikely that it would have picked anything up from your delivery driver, as they are all taking good precautions. But if you would rather be safe, then set your delivery to one side for a day.

Bugle Podcast merch

Keeping podcast supporters happy is vital, especially if they contribute to your fundraising campaigns. So if you’re wondering ‘shall I get merch for my podcast’, the answer is a resounding YES! Whether you sell directly to your fans, or use them as incentives for a crowdfunding campaign, you should be making £10/$10 per t-shirt.

Our CEO is a huge fan of the satirical comedy podcast, The Bugle. So much so that he’s been listening to it since its inception in 2007. He still fondly remembers long-forgotten features as “Hotties From History”, and “The Audio Cryptic Crossword”. He would gleefully listen to it as respite from the crappy job he was forced to take before starting his next business.

Our free Christmas jumper design offer is BACK!

When mobile marketing platform Appsflyer needed holiday-themed sweaters they gave us a call. We helped out with print and distribution of hundreds of these beauties to their friends, customers and partners all over the world. It got them plenty of Twitter love!

Usually we’re the kind of people who think that the sight of Christmas decorations appearing before the middle of November should be punishable  by a solid pelting with rotten fruit. But we also know that good planning for seasonal campaigns needs some foresight, too. So we’ll design your Christmas sweater for you TOTALLY FREE of charge!

Merchandise Fulfillment and Distribution from just £5 per item

Running a crowdfunding campaign where you need to send hundreds of t-shirts, totes, and hoodies to supporters can be stressful. As can organising all the shipping for a fast-selling t-shirt design that you want to get out to your fans. Or just finding out what t-shirt sizes your big team all want.

Great t-shirts and totes that we printed for the amazing CRATE brewery crowdfunding campaign

We’re well known for our great quality printing (don’t believe us? – just check the reviews on Google!), but the good news is that we’ve just launched our new fulfillment service. You can rely on good quality picking, packing, and tracked shipping to customers all over the world.

What Brexit means for our business, and our EU customers…

Ramp is a deeply European company, headquartered in Wales, UK.

We have employed EU nationals in the UK. We have employed EU & UK nationals in our EU office. One of the co-founders is from Bulgaria, an EU country.

Does anyone know what’s happening?

On the 29th March the UK is scheduled to leave the EU. 

Or is it? We’re not entirely sure. Nobody is. But if the UK does leave the EU as scheduled, we’re not sure what impact it will have on us, or our EU customers. We don’t really know how it will affect supply chains, billing, tax, employment, money transfers etc etc. All these things are vital to us as a business, and how we best serve those who are kind enough to trust us with their brand.

Planning for Brexit. Or not.

It’s three weeks away, and we can’t plan how we could serve up to 20 million EU businesses that might want to use us. And that’s not to mention the untold millions of clubs, events, conferences, as-yet-unregistered startups etc etc.

But we do know that after 29th March, and until there is more clarity from the UK government, that it’s going to be impossible for us to make any guarantees to our existing EU customers. Customers who make up approximately 10% of our business, because we currently print most of our UK & EU orders here in the UK (all our USA orders will, as always, continue to be printed in the US).

So, it’s very likely that our business is going to start losing revenue, and therefore be worth less, on 1st April. And as a growing British business, this truly sucks.

Who are the winners in Brexit?

In short, a handful of very wealthy people. And proportionally very few other people.

But, as a thank you to the EU customers who make up 10% of our business, we’re offering 10% off orders made before 14th March*. We’ll ship your orders to you in plenty of time for them to reach you before the Brexit deadline. Simply because we can’t be sure if there will be delays, confusion and import fees after the 29th March.

To take advantage of this offer that marks the changing of the social, legal, and economic structure of the UK solely for some wealthy people’s political and financial gain, use the code THANKSBREXIT by the 14th March.

*For those with a valid EU VAT number, you can still benefit from getting VAT-free prices PLUS the 10% off. Just email Neil for more info.

Want to know a little more about our background in Cardiff?

Back in 2011, operating out of a tiny warehouse in south Wales, we set up our first t-shirt printing companies, Dizzyjam and Cotton Cart. At the start, we’d stay up late at night printing one-off, bespoke t-shirts for the music industry. Since then, we’ve expanded, improved and moved multiple times, and now we’re selling hundreds of thousands of bespoke, one-off shirts worldwide.

But our customers wanted more. They loved our one-off shirts. But they kept asking us “Can I order 20 t-shirts? 50? 250?” The requests kept coming in. So we took our knowhow and we decided the best way to help them was to build Ramp Tshirts – the simplest, friendliest custom printing service in the world, HQ’d here in Cardiff, and the simply the best way to order screen printed t-shirts and hoodies for teams and events.

Our organic t-shirt. Great quality, and kinder to the earth!

Need organic t-shirts for your team, for promo purposes, or for selling to discerning customers? Then we’ve got your back. 

We do our great quality screenprinting on slightly different organic t-shirts, depending on where you are in the world.

Tote bags

Classic conference tote

Our tote bags are great for promotional use. They’re functional, strong, and ideal for conference giveaways or daily use. The great thing about tote bags is that they can be used every single day, and don’t get hidden behind jackets and coats, as t-shirts sometimes can. So your logo and design will be loud and proud!

There’s not much else to say about these, other than the facts that they’re 100% cotton canvas, approx 38 x 42cm (15 x 16 inches) and we love them!

Fashion tote

This tote is thicker, bigger, and is widely loved by higher end brands who want their bags to be seen every single day. We’ve seen people use these for everything from shopping, to carrying their laptop and wallet every day, to moving house!

The black one looks amazing with a strong white design on it, for example!

Specs for UK fashion bags (USA specs coming soon)

100% Cotton Canvas – 407gsm (12oz/yd²)
