Featured Retailer: Raygun

We are happy to announce our latest featured retailer, Raygun. Coming to you from 2 different locations: One in Des Moines, Iowa and another in Iowa City. Raygun offers witty and fun t-shirts, books, drink-ware, notebooks, postcards, stickers, wallets, and some of our coolest MP bags!


Raygun was created and opened by Mike Draper in 2005. Mike graduated from Penn in Philadelphia and after college began traveling around the east coast selling shirts at some of the best locations he could find. Some of the locations included: Philadelphia, Boston, and New York City. Mike would sell his shirts with a passion and hit some of the major parks and hot spots in New York City such as Time Square, Washington Square Park and Union Square.

While Mike was traveling throughout the east coast he started making sketches from a dream he had- to create his own space that could be a design studio, print space and clothing store. Later that year Mike moved to Des Moines and his dream became a reality  as his sketches came to life with Raygun.

Since opening in 2005 Raygun has grown a lot, spawning a custom screen printing and design company called 8/7 CENTRAL and opened a second Raygun location in Iowa City.

Check out some photos of Rayguns store and fun products below:


If you don’t live in Iowa..or cant make a trip there to see the actual store, check them out online at

It may be worth your time since they are “The Greatest Store in the Universe.”
