New Rheumatoid Arthritis T-shirt Store


Rebuilding our rheumatoid disease / rheumatoid arthritis t-shirt store

The doors are open – the new t-shirt site is up with many new designs & products! The attitude is uniquely RA Warrior. It’s what I like to call “gentle advocacy” with positive designs that portray hope, gently confront ignorance, and increase awareness of RD / RA or other chronic illnesses. It’s much more than a rheumatoid arthritis t-shirt store!

3 Items I love in the new RD / RA t-shirt store

How can I choose? But I promised myself I’d pick three things to show you. You can browse the pages for more – currently about 300 items. Much more to come.

CAUTION FLARE ZONE hoodie: It’s great to convey some humor (an orange cone!), the severity of the situation (a warning sign), and hopefulness (“treatment in progress”) at the same time!







rheumatoid arthritis t-shirt: I am strongerI GOT STRONGER t-shirt: It didn’t get easier but I got stronger. The heart design is meaningful because I created the fonts using Celtic scrolls and warrior symbols. I’m Irish and my name is an ancient Gaelic word for guess what? Warrior The design took me a month to create last year and I’m so delighted to have it on some products now.

Several of them have requested I create designs to proclaim their support. Click here to see 2 totally different designs with this theme.

Renovating – more rebuilding!

I remember a limerick from childhood like this: Let’s build a new house. Let’s build the new house out of the old house. Let’s live in the old house while we’re building the new house. I think the pictures were really funny. (Please comment if you know what book that is.)

I’ve begun some repairs and renovation of Over time, standards of website code change, and things need to be updated. There are newer better ways of doing things – just like in a house. Most of the work will be behind the scenes but eventually the front page may also have a fresh look. So, I’ll be building a new site one out of the old one, while still using the old one. Hopefully there won’t be any big glitches.

    Was happy to see the new shirts but depresed when i saw prices. Zazzle isnt doing us any favors with those prices. thirty five dollars for a tee shirt… I believe all of us are on disablitly or have a really hard time working wondering how long i can last so money is at a premium

      Dear Tom,
      Money is really tight here too. Here’s what I suggest – subscribe to their emails for coupons & wait until you get one for 50 or 60% off – they do have those big sales. Depending on whether you order more than once or twice a year, the Zazzle Black could save too. This is what I’m planning on doing.
      Is there anything specific you’d like to see in a t-shirt?
      I think Zazzle is obviously a lot more than I usually pay (clearance prices) for clothes, but the items are custom made to order on quality brands.

    How about supporting old Marines with RD? JKS

      I love Marines, Roger! My dad, uncle, cousin were all USMC! Ooorahh! I was wondering yesterday about whether it’s legal to use the logo. I’ll have to find out.

    I love this new RD / RA t-shirt store and it seems easy to get a perfect tee. The given t-shirts are good, especially that heart design t-shirt is lovable.
