There are big changes coming to You’re Doing Great! I want to start by expressing my gratitude to everyone who has supported YDG over the years, a grassroots effort to build a fun company with a positive message. The purchasing and ordering process has not always been the easiest or most straight-forward, which is why although the changes listed below are not very “sexy,” they’re very exciting as they will allow YDG to expand and focus on creativity going forward, especially as interest in our products becomes more nationally widespread.
Payment processing: YDG now offers online payment processing via PayPal. You can use an existing PayPal account to make a purchase, or checkout as a guest using just a credit card. All payments are handled securely with PayPal. If you’re local to St. Pete and wish to pay with cash, select “Cash on Delivery.”
Live shipping rates: During checkout, after entering your shipping address, the website will automatically calculate and update the cost of shipping based off of the destination postal code. We currently ship to the United States and Canada. If you’re local to St. Pete and still prefer to pickup orders locally, you can still opt for local delivery from the website.
Inventory: This will be an ongoing endeavor. You may notice that inventory is generally more available across the board at the moment. I’m moving away from doing individual pre-orders and am working to keep inventory on stock and continually revolving. If there is a specific style that you would like to see more of (size, color, design), send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know what you’d like to see in stores and we’ll do our best to accommodate. Additionally, only products that are currently in stock are listed in the store; out of stock products are completely hidden.
Pricing: I’ve always tried to keep prices as low as possible so that YDG products would be as accessible as possible. However, I’ve reached a point where it is no longer sustainable for me to offer t-shirts at the same prices as in the past. As a result, pricing for most items has changed. T-shirts have increased from $15 to $20, while long sleeves have increased from $17 to $22. Crop tops are still $20. Koozies have decreased from $4 and $5 to $3. As a thank you to those who have supported YDG over the years, you can apply coupon code EXTRA5 at checkout to get $5 off your total order of $20 or more.
Crop Tops: A quick note about crop tops: crop tops have been very popular, which I’m really excited about. Unfortunately, the crop top manufacturer we use is different from our t-shirt/tank top/long sleeve manufacturer. As a result, the crop tops have not been as available as we would like, but we’re working on adding more to our inventory.
Lastly, I wanted to give a shout out to Christina Rosetti of C-Rose Media, a Tampa-Bay-based Eckerd College graduate and a wonderfully talented photographer who is helping to bring YDG apparel to life. Check her out on social media!
