We have been pretty busy over the last month! We made some changes to our website such as the addition of an ‘On Sale’ section on the home page where we are hoping to change the t-shirt available on sale here fairly regularly. So be sure to check it out and keep an eye on it. We also moved some menus around and we filled in some pages that for some reason were left empty.
Even better than all that we are offering free shipping on all orders over €50!! This is valid until March and you dont need a coupon code or anything, all you need to do is add €50 worth of products to your basket and the free shipping will be applied! Time to get shopping!!
If anyone was watching Dragons Den Ireland this week you may have seen a guy talking about his new idea for apparel printing website that would take the hassle out of ordering group orders. The idea is that you can upload your design to their website and then share the link with others who would be interested in buying. The orders are then placed directly with the printing company meaning that the organiser does not need to worry about collecting money or remembering sizes etc. Sounds good right? Well the Dragons funded him.
I sat in amazement as this is not a new idea! We can offer this service! We call it a campaign and even better then what this guy was offering we also share the profits with the organiser. Its perfect for fundraising or just making extra money. There is another large american company thats in operation years that solely offers a similar service and many people use it to make extra cash. I guess it shows that you dont always have to have a new idea on those shows but also I think it shows the importance of doing market research! Anyway if you want to have a look at what we can offer by way of a campaign have a look here.
We are continuing to update the website and we know we need more new designs up so we will try to get a good few up this month so watch this space!
Thanks for reading.
Well since our last post we were in NUIGalway for Akumakon. The roads down were pretty icy but I’m glad to say that we made it safely and what a great con it was. We really enjoyed meeting all our customers and having the opportunity to print some of your custom t-shirts.
In Closet Geek news we have recently signed up a number of great “Featured Artists”. These artists great artwork will be available on the Closet Geek site for the next year. Each design includes the artists signature and is their own work whether its fan art or original concepts. They are truly awesome and you should go have a look. Click on the pictures to see the artists work!
We also attended a massive trade fair in the UK this month so keep an eye out for new products on Closet Geek.

Thank you for taking the time to read and we hope you enjoyed it.
Happy new year to all our customers we hope Santa brought you all you wanted and your are not suffering too much this morning!
We have decided that this year we are going to keep you better informed about what we are up to and where we are going.
This year passed was a great one for Fou Tees. Our CEO Aoife Nielsen was nominated for the DLDC Wild Geese Irish Whiskey Enterprise Awards and although she didn’t win it was a great boost to Fou Tees and a confirmation that we were heading in the right direction.
In August of this year in the midst of the many great conventions we attended, she was chosen as one of four in her category for the Donegal heat of Ireland’s Best Young Entrepreneur. This involved a few weeks of intensive work preparing for a presentation to the judges. The experience was instrumental in the division of Fou Tees into three great websites Closet Geek, Club Hoodies Ireland and of course Fou Tees.
These make it easier for the customer to find exactly what they are looking for.
Fou Tees – The main site still has the funny t-shirt and allows fully customised t-shirts to be ordered.
Closet Geek – Is full of Geek t-shirts and hoodies. Perfect for the Geek in you!
Club Hoodies Ireland – The one stop shop for your hoodie and uniform needs. Whether its for clubs or groups we can sort it out.
Over the past year Fou Tees attended many great conventions. We absolutely love the experience. We can honestly say attending the conventions is something we look forward to every year.
The hours are long, the work is hard but we feel we are in it together with the organisers, staff and volunteers! Having never attended any conventions before trading at them we have been blown away by the feeling on inclusion and community that we feel at every event. What an amazing thing to create – a place to be completely comfortable to be yourself! To geek over whatever you are a geek about and find others who are equally as excited. The organisers should all be so proud!
We have added many pictures to our Facebook Page of our convention adventures so feel free to pop over and have a look.
That’s all for now, thanks for reading and we hope you enjoyed it.
