Lower prices and free shipping on everything!

After 2 very difficult years, we finally have some good news to share with you! We are reducing all prices by 20% in addition to offering free shipping on ALL orders!

Since the birth of the cooperative in 2009, the goal has always been to offer the lowest prices possible so that our clothes are affordable for everyone. Despite the increase in the cost of living, we have always chosen to absorb any increase in expenses to avoid passing the bill on to those who buy our t-shirts.

But in January 2020, our supplier has a huge price increase of over 30%. This change forced us to increase our prices for the first time in our history. The price of a t-shirt went from $15 to $18 and it also reduced the store’s margin which absorbed part of the increase.

Bas luck over bad luck, the Covid-19 pandemic began a few weeks later, causing our shop to shut down during a critical period. Even after the reopening, our sales fell, causing heavy losses. Let’s remember that NGNM cooperative funds a multitude of activist organizations and also the web hosting of 30+ anarchist websites, so we have to maintain a certain level of sales to be able to pay the fixed expenses. The store was therefore forced to cut spending and take a break from announcing new donations.

Since the unfortunate price increase, our top priority was to find a new supplier and work on the web development of the IT platform which bridges the website and the printer. Today, we finally have a solution to reduce prices!

To celebrate this news, we are offering you the lowest prices in our history! In addition, the required minimum of $50 has been removed, so free shipping is now available on all orders regardless of the number of items!

NGNM wiki – explaining the origin of the quotes and symbols found on our t-shirts

At NGNM, we consider an activist t-shirt is not just some boring consumer product – it’s important to understand the meaning of the different symbols printed on our shirts. With so many acronyms and slogans, sometimes even codified (1312 = ACAB), it can be confusing for those who are unfamiliar with anarchism.

This is why our now displays a detailed description of each t-shirt with explanations of the symbols, their meanings, and their historical origins. These texts provide a better understanding of the social struggles that inspired our designs. This information also helps to become familiar with the authors of the many quotes found on our t-shirts

  • A “161” t-shirt will inform you that the numbers represent the position of the letters AFA in the alphabet, which is an acronym for Anti-Fascist Action
    .
  • A quote from Makhno will show you the biography of Nestor Makhno and the history of Makhnovtchina. We learn, among other things, that Makhno was the inventor of the Tachanka, a machine gun pulled by a horse, another symbol found on our t-shirts.
    .
  • A band’s t-shirt will display their biography, history, and member list.
    .
  • A t-shirt with a black flag will show you the history of the black flag and where its association with anarchism came from.
    .
  • A t-shirt with a Ⓔ will tell you that the symbol means “Equality”
    .
  • A “We can do it” t-shirt will tell the story of Rosie the Riveter and her association with the feminist movement.

This wiki is the culmination of a collective work over several years. Every t-shirt has been reviewed to add thematic tags for every struggle, every person, every band, and every symbol. Then, an explanatory text was linked to each label and was translated into 3 languages ​​(English, French, Spanish).

These tags, more than 3000 in total, also allow better classification of our t-shirts and greatly improve search engine accuracy. It also makes it possible to sort the t-shirts by language.

Please feel free to report any inaccuracies or translation errors. You can also suggest improvements to descriptive texts

Shop Updates for 2020

2019 was a hell of a year for No Gods No Masters. We had to undergo through some major changes – and we are still in recovery mode. Here’s what happened.

Flex Print is gone

We are very sad to announce that we no longer support Flex Printing. The company doing printing for our shop decided to completely discontinue flexography. We strongly think this is a bad decision and we tried to fight to keep this type of printing but unfortunately, we have no control over the final decision.

Pricing adjustments

During the last 10 years, we never increased the price of our t-shirts. Our model is based on low margins to offer clothing at affordable prices. In the past, we absorbed all of the pricing increases and we chose to reduce our margins instead of increasing the prices.

But recently, our printer increased their print cost by 50%, and for the first time ever we had to take a tough decision and adjust our pricing. The t-shirts are now sold at $16.67 instead of $15.49.

We are currently in talks with different companies to find a new print partner to reduce costs for our customers.

No new designs

During the summer of 2019, our printing partner introduced major changes in their system which means we had to completely re-write the backend of our shop. The migration was much more complicated than expected and it created a lot of serious technical issues. Since then, it is impossible to add new designs to our shop. We are still working to find a solution, but for now, we are not able to accept any new design submissions. This is why we didn’t add any new designs in 2019.

No more promotions

From time to time, we used to run limited-time promotions such as 15% OFF. This is because we were sometimes getting reduced pricing from our printing partner. Unfortunately, these discounts are no more provided and paid by our supplier, so we can’t offer them anymore.

We also had to adjust the discounts offered to non-profits.

Designer area

If you are a designer who is a member of the cooperative, please note that the partner area is currently going under maintenance. Unfortunately, it is currently not possible to log in and view your statistics. We are working to fix this issue as soon as possible.

It’s here! Announcing the launch of our newly redesigned website

We are pleased to announce the launch of our newly redesigned website, No-gods-no-masters.com. Featuring a brand new look, more information on our products and simplified navigation.

This is the first major website redesign in 10 years, needless to say, the old version was long due for an update. We don’t use a third party software to run this website – we built our own. Our cooperative requires very specific needs so our website was entirely built from scratch by our web developers who have been working on tirelessly for over 1 year to make this possible.

We hope you like the changes and find it easier to find what you’re looking for quickly and efficiently. If you have any questions or feedback, please let us know by e-mailing us.

 

New donations will be announced soon.

Lower shipping prices and free shipping when ordering 4 t-shirts !

As explained on our website, No-Gods-No-Masters.com works in partnership with a printer located in the United States and which also handles shipments. For several years, our main problem was the shipping cost for international orders : although the price was acceptable for residents of North America, the bill could easily double (or triple) for shipment to Europe.

Great news for our friends overseas : shipping prices have been reduced and are now 50 % to 75% cheaper than before, allowing our customers to save lots of money. The European residents will no longer be penalized by the geographical location of our shop and will pay the same price as if it would be a local order.
Postal delays have also improved : a package now takes about 10 days to arrive in Europe.

In addition, you can now get free shipping everywhere in the world with the promotion code “FREESHIPNI” (for orders of 4 t-shirts or more.) *

New rates for mail delivery :

 

* Note: For orders over $100, a maximum of $10 will be reduced to the cost of delivery when using the promotion code.

New hooded sweatshirts section & new designs !

As promised, No-Gods-No-Masters.com has finally launched its Sweatshirts section! You will find all our designs already present on the shop on hoodies. Although the price may seem high to some, we touch a lower “profit” than on our other products. Product quality justifies the price, our quality Sweatshirts being above average quality that you would find elsewhere.
