Same Cool Designs...Much better fits
As we complete a year of being live, we have learnt a lot about what our customers want from us. The good news has been that overall, we have been able to meet and exceed our customers expectations regarding the quality of the t shirts and the printing, and also our service levels. This has largely been because of a great production and printing team and an ever - smiling and helpful customer service and logistics team.
One area however, where we feel that there was some scope for improvement was the fit of the t shirts. For Women's sizes, most of our customers are happy with the fit. However, for Men's sizes, we did get feedback about three areas: The Neck, Sleeves and Lenghth. Over the last few months, we have been experimenting with different styles and cuts and finally have made the following changes for all our Men's t shirts:
We have got some great initial feedback for this changes from our regular customers. The changes have been implemented from all designs that have been introduced from our 100% Genuine. The only two exceptions are Windstorm and Same Turtle, Different Colours, which still have the old cut and style.
Another significant change that we have made is to introduce 3XL for Men's Sizes. We have been getting a lot of requests for 3XL peices and we hope that more people will be able to enjoy our t shirts with this introduction.
We hope that these changes will go a long way in increasing the level of satisfaction for our users.
We've been trying to consistently improve the quality of service to our users and one of the most important tasks that we have set ourselves is to try and reduce the transit times for our international orders.
Over the last month we have experimented with many different logistics companies and service providers in an effort to offer you our free shipping service with even faster delivery times.
We are happy to announce that in a first step towards that goal, our US shipments will now get delivered within 12 working days (approx 2 weeks). This is a reduction of 1 - 2 weeks from what the transit time was earlier.
For other countries, we are trying hard to get the same service as soon as possible. In any case, our experience has been that for Europe, Australia and most of Asia deliveries do happen within 2 weeks.
We hope this step will allow our users to get a much better service experience while ordering from our site.
Your chance to get the ones that got away!!
There have been many requests for manny of our archived t shirts to be brought back into the gallery by users who were not able to buy them the first time around or by those who want to buy a few more. So, for the next few days, we plan to re - introduce some of our old classics. These are some of the designs that have had many requests from the users.
There are many more apart from these which are very special and we are trying to figure out a way in which we can make those available to the customers as well.
Till then, enjoy these timeless classics. A big thank you from us and the artists for appreciating them so much.

Last Year at Christmas time, all the team members of CaptainKYSO were wondering what the new year would bring for them. Full fledged preparations for the launch of our website had been going on for a few months. There were many questions about how our new venture would be accepted by our users and if they would like the t shirts and the community that we were trying to build.
CaptainKYSO is now 9 months old and we've tried our best to bring the world's best t shirt designers and their coolest designs to you. And now when the year is about to end, we would like to give our community some nice, genuine deals for the holiday season.
From 19th December for a few weeks, we will be introducing a new deal every 2 - 3 day on the home page of the website. Apart from giving our users a chance to get some great tees at even greater prices, our objective is also to intorduce many of our newer members to some of our earlier designs and designers and for those who missed out on buying some of our earlier prints, to get that "one that got away"
Merry Christmas, Guys. We hope you have a great year ahead.
The magic of the "Bring it Back" button
October is a transition month in India, wherein in most places the monsoon subsides and slowly the cool days of winter start setting in. It is also a time of the beginning of festivals with many such as Diwali, Eid and The Puja just around the corner.
CaptainKYSO is now more than 6 months old and in this period we have released more than 125 designs for you. Many popular artists from around the world have supported the site by licensing some fabulous designs to us. Many of these designs were printed in the begining and by the time a vast majority of our community became aware of the site, they were already into the archives.
For all those people who did not get a chance to buy some of our coolest designs, first time around, we bring you "CaptainKYSO's Redux Forthnight". Over the next 2 weeks we will be releasing some of our popular old designs, back from the archives for a very limited period. Each design will be sold only for 2 weeks before they go back in the archives.
We hope that those of you who wanted to buy these designs, but missed them or the ones who have just come to know about our website recently will enjoy this redux forthnight.
Enjoy the winter months, everyone.
Does anything ever become less expensive?
Gold just hit an all-time high. Oil prices to go up this weekend. So we live in a world where nothing becomes less expensive. Ever. Right?
We want to change that as far as CaptainKYSO t shirts are concerned. Starting today, for our Indian customers, the first day price of our t shirts will be Rs. 399 and second day onwards you can buy them at Rs. 499. That’s a cool Rs. 100 less than what you were paying earlier.
You must be wondering. Why and How? Why, because we want to make these cool tees more affordable to a larger percentage of the population and we want you guys to get the best possible deal for each rupee that you spend.
What about How? Are we compromising on quality? The answer is an emphatic NO. In the last six months, the KYSO community has been growing rapidly and we are now at a stage where we can gain some economies of scale in our production. This we are passing on to you, right now. So it’s basically the same quality that you've come to expect from us at a much better price.
The last tricky issue we faced was when to bring about this change. Since we can only do it at one stroke, there was a justified opinion around the office that it would be a bit unfair to the customers who bought just a few days before the price changed. So for all these guys, we’ll be sending something in the mail which will hopefully help in smoothing some ruffled feathers.
We sincerely hope that this move will help in welcoming more people into the KYSO community and will also make our loyal customers buy a few more of those prints that they always wanted.
Lastly, why not better prices for our international customers as well? That’s because, a very large portion of the total price goes into shipping cost which has been going up over the last few months. In case we are able to strike a better deal in the coming months with our logistics partner, we ll try and pass on the savings to you for sure!!
Till then, Happy Shopping at CaptainKYSO:-)
FREE SHIPPING ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD IN 5 DAYS. GARUNTEED. HERE'S HOW..
A major concern that international customers have had is the time taken for shipping, with normal shipments taking between 2 - 4 weeks. Well, we have a solution for that now!
From today, if we receive orders of 3 or more t shirts from any of our users within a 24 hours period, we'll send it using the expedited shipping option for FREE! This option will guarantee delivery within 5 working days anywhere in the world. We will also be able to track each of these shipments on a real time basis.
All you have to do is order 3 or more t shirts of any designs from the website and leave the rest to us. You ll receive the delivery for these tees within 5 working days! Anywhere in the world!! You don't have to buy 3 tees of the same design. 3 or more tees of a combination of any designs and sizes which are available for sale on the website, will do the trick.
Another change that we are making is that from now on all normal international shipments will have the facility of being tracked from our end. This was currently not being done. So at any point in time, we ll be able to let you know exactly where your shipment is.
We have been testing this facility for the last month and we've realised that it has also reduced the transit time in most cases by atleast 1 week. However, we will be paying an extra charge for this. So the prices of the t shirts will increase marginally by $ 1 from today. On the first day each tee will cost $ 15 and the second day onwards it will be $ 19. These are all inclusive charges inclusive of normal shipping.
We hope that both these improvements will help in making sure that all our customers receive their t shirts fast and that they always get the information about where the shipments are at any point in time.
It will also completely eleminate those rare instances wherein a customer did not receive his or her t shirt.

WE'VE CHANGED OUR SIZES FROM TODAY...
When we started the website a couple of months ago, we kept the sizes a bit smaller than what was generally available in the American and European Markets. However, we have realized that a very significant portion of the community (especially in the Men’s Category) have been asking for bigger, more comfortable sizes as compared to the ones that we started out with.
Well, we hear you, and as I had written in a blog entry a couple of weeks ago, we have introduced new sizes from today. The fit is now larger, more comfortable and more in line with what our international customers are used to.
The exact specifications are of course present in the sizing chart next to each t shirt. However, in simple terms, for Men’s T shirts, we’ve shifted a bit more than one size upwards. So the new Men’s Small is approximately equal to what the old Men’s Medium was.
For Women’s sizes, although we haven’t changed the chest specifications, we’ve narrowed the waist a little bit (about ½ - ¾ inch on an average), and also increased the length by about 1 inch.
We think that all these changes are a definite improvement over what we started with and will give the users a much better and comfortable fit. It will also allow a lot of our bigger sized users to buy the t shirts.
The quality of our designs and artists, of course, remains the same.
