    Default Zazzle suck arse

    Well... my GamingLives t-shirt from Zazzle finally arrived. It was ordered on January 13th and has JUST been delivered... yes, it took them 51 days to send a t-shirt from the USA to Glasgow. I'm sure the pigeon was knackered, but it had disappeared by the time Lorna opened the door.

    I wouldn't have minded so much if the t-shirt was actually decent, but it truly sucked. The quality of the shirt itself was pretty good - bog standard Hanes heavy material, so that was impressive... but the print quality... wow... the print quality was disgusting. I used to print my own t-shirts when I was in a band and it was all done with the archaic method of paper stencilling and a squeegee with a silk screen. Zazzle use the top of the range direct to garment printers at $25k per printer. WHY, then, was the quality so poor? Needless to say, I'll not be using Zazzle again... the length of time it took to produce my shirt only JUST trumps the length of time it took to get a Burnout Paradise postcard for Rook's birthday... which arrived more than a month later and was too shit to give as a present anyway.

    The colour was all wrong anyway, the blue is ridiculously dark and you can't really see all the shading in the D-Pad like you can with the Spreadshirt one. The photos don't really capture how bad it is because I had to use flash, which made the blue brighter... but it's VERY dark in reality. The amount of missing ink is incredible, and the text is so blurred around the edges, it makes me think my eyesight has deteriorated further overnight. That may actually be true... but Lorna says herself that the text is blurred so I'm guessing it's not JUST my blindness!

    If you'd like a look at the horrible shirt... please look below...

    "If you want me to 'act professional', I can tell you that I'm not interested. I'm sitting in my home office wearing a bathrobe. The same way I'm not going to start wearing ties, I'm *also* not going to buy into the fake politeness, the lying, the office politics and backstabbing, the passive aggressiveness, and the buzzwords. Because THAT is what 'acting professionally' results in: people resort to all kinds of really nasty things because they are forced to act out their normal urges in unnatural ways."

    That absolutely sucks. In recognition of the anger that they have caused, I have dissed the Dalai Lama on Twitter. Cause and effect. Zazzle produce a terrible T-shirt and I make the Dalai Lama cry.

    Look, I have the perfect defense. If those half-naked hippies start shouting abuse my way, I'll just ask them to forgive me.

    Problem solved.

    That doesn't work. At least, it doesn't work with Christians. If you want to try it on the Buddhists, let us know how it goes, but they do reckon they killed Bruce Lee.

    I hate shirts like that, where the print either rubs off, or cracks up and looks awful. For it to have happened before it even got to you though is atrocious. I'd demand a refund.

    Do you guys know Matt Lord AKA Karoshidrop AKA Lordstar? A few of our Peowwsters bought his shirts at Insert Coin 09 and they were great. He does custom work and is reasonably priced too. I bought one of Haggar (Final Fight) piledriving a shark.

    You might know him from the Ready Up forums.

    We got our Peoww shirts done in a hurry at some place down in Taunton. They came out great as well.
