Rikki Tikki Tees Shop

Remember Rudyard Kipling's Jungle Book Story called "Rikki Tikki Tavi"? It's about a mongoose who tangles with a cobra and wins. So what does that have to do with us? Well, sometimes it DOES feel like we're battling cobras. Running a business in a small town has it challenges. But, it has its rewards, too. We love the beautiful Smoky Mountains and find Waynesville, NC and Haywood County a wonderful place to live!

We're in our 11th year here now (and in our 18th year in the screen printing business) and could write a great skit for Saturday Night Live on how NOT to do an awful lot of things! But, actually the name has nothing to do with all this. It just so happens that my name is Ric and my partner and designer is Tavi and we both had the same nickname growing up (in different parts of the country)... Rikki Tikki Tavi. It seemed a good thing to base our name on. (People remember it, too!)

We are a family owned screen printing company specializing in unique designs. We are service-oriented and work very hard to satisfy all of our valued customers. Our designer, Tavia Thomas, especially likes to work with clients who want something a little different. If you have a special interest, we'd be glad to hear from you! If you're looking for a unique, quality t-shirt (sweats, caps and other imprintable clothing, too), Rikki Tikki Tees can fill the bill with original and custom designs.

Please browse our site to see examples of our work, check out our blog "Hot Off the Press" to see what we're currently printing, our news (and sometimes just our crazy ramblings!)

We offer valuable
coupons and currently have one for a free t-shirt to anyone who stops by to visit, as well as a discount on a screen printing order.

We also maintain an eBay store where we sell some of our original designs:

We are located at 764 S. Haywood Street in Waynesville, NC., Phone: 828.454.0515.
