Punk Grandad has been going for about 10 years and its been mostly fun, with a little bit of aggro thrown in. But we are going to change.
Through the conversations and emails I’ve had over the last few years people think we are a full time business….we are not. We run the site and Val, Griffs wife, buys the stock and does the shipping from a room in her house. The cost of this is significant and the upshot is we don’t make a penny. Thats not why we started but I thought I would have had a new PC out of it by now 🙂
But the future…thats a different thing. We are now selling on Amazon.com in the US and in the not too distant future this will be available in the UK. Amazon carry out the printing for us, offer a larger range of colours and styles and do all the shipping. Piece of Piss. It means we can expand our range and give more choice. We will also be on another print on demand site that will offer items other than Tshirts….mugs, stickers, phone cases etc….that will come and when it does i’ll put the site on here.
So what does it mean for our current stock? We will sell it off at a cheaper price…..we just need to do a stock count so we get the numbers right and not let anyone down and then we will do it. So if you want to buy a shirt today, but can wait a while longer, the prices will come down. If you can’t wait thats fine too 🙂
If you are reading this and you have been here before, many thanks….if you are new to Punk Grandad then a lot of this may not make sense….but thank you too.
