TeeRex Tees was founded in May 2013 and is based in Nelson, New Zealand.
This isn’t the first time we’ve been selling t-shirts in fact that started way back in the 90s when we toured some Europe’s best festivals selling nothing but t-shirts and sunglasses. Our sunglasses website started first in 2009 and is called iPOP Eyewear
You’ve probably heard of some of these festivals we attended - Glastonbury, Roskilde, Rock Am Ring, Lowlands, Arvika, Hultsfred, and Lollipop?
We would rent a big van and hire a few workers and drive to the festivals. The furthest we would travel was Arvika Festival in the North of Sweden. It was a small festival of around 25,000 but it was worth the 12 hour drive.
We had a lot of fun on the road and even back then we realised that there was an audience for band t-shirts and cool graphic t-shirts if you had the right designs.
We eventually quit the festival life and through our travelling connections ended up living in New Zealand and eventually we started Teerex.
We wanted to offer something different than the other t-shirt stores in NZ. So we've hand picked all the designs and have put together a cool collection of tees that are affordable and superb quality.
All our t-shirts are officially licensed and are sourced from reputable overseas suppliers.
