A new year, new directions.

We may just be a t-shirt company, however, we still believe that we can all make a difference, whether we’re an individual consumer, or multi-national corporation. As a small, personal business, we have always believed in the importance of ensuring that our t-shirts are sourced from manufacturers that enforce high standards. When we first started Arctic Tees, we went to Thailand, picked up a bit of the lingo, and found a small t-shirt printer that made the t-shirts as part of a family...

The Arctic Tees’ t-shirts’ ancestory

It seems as though t-shirts are a staple part of our wardrobe. It’s hard for us to imagine waking up in the morning and not throwing on an Artic Tees’ tee and a pair of jeans. Yet, not too long ago wearing a t-shirt in public would have been the height of infamy. T-shirts with cool, graphic designs would have not been an acceptable form of outerwear; in fact, t-shirts were seen as undergarments. It was only thanks to American workers in farming and agricultural industries that the t-shirt...

Off to the market we go

We’re extremely excited to be attending this year’s SA Dog’s Home Christmas fare, which will be held at Bonython Park from 10 am to 4 pm on 8th November 2015. Apart from t-shirts, dogs have to be one of our favourite things; in fact, a dog features on one of our t-shirts, getting his own back on a cat (sorry cats, we love you too). We will be bringing an assortment of t-shirts, and some gift cards with money off vouchers to go...

An amazing customer

This Christmas we were lucky enough to have an amazing supporter buy ten of our t-shirts to donate to Colony 47, a charity that helps disadvantaged children and teens, as Christmas presents. We love helping out our local communities and charitable organisations where we can, and decided to match their gift and donate ten Arctic Tees’ t-shirts too. The supporter would like to remain anonymous, but we want to know how much we value her contribution. We want to wish all of our customers a...

Five Reasons You Should Buy Kissing Death

There are many reasons we can give you to buy this t-shirt, not including its strangely poetic name. We hope the t-shirt alone will be enough to entice you to buy this one-of-a-kind design; however, if you’re umming and arr-ing, wondering if you should buy the latest Threadless design instead, here are 5 compelling reasons. 1. Zebras. What more can we say? As you can see, we’re a little obsessed with animals, and a lot of our t-shirts feature them. Zebras fascinate us more than most...

The importance of giving back

Thank you once again for supporting Arctic Tees. We’re extremely happy with all the positive feedback we’ve received, especially for such a new business. Something I witnessed today inspired me for our second blog post. Some people may not have even noticed the kind act I witnessed in a shop today, yet, it made me smile, and reflect on one of the values that we hold important at Arctic Tees. An old lady, stooped in the aisle I was walking up, not quite able to bend down to reach the...
