Default Site store review (new product just arrived)

Shirts are OK quality for the price.
Logos look like iron-on Inkjet transfers. Looks like they pulled them off too soon, or had uneven heat.

Not BAD for the price, but not what I was expecting either. They're headed for the wash (inside out in cold water) to see how they hold up to the first wash.

Both shirts look IDENTICAL, with mild 'peel' on the left side of the logo (the effect isn't noticable until you get really close, normal conversation distance would never notice):

Would I buy more? Probably, for the price, but I will email CafePress about the quality.

My L67 mug was VERY high quality and I'm very happy with it. My 'Got Boost' T-shirt (no longer available) wasn't super-high quality, but also hasn't faded after a good half-dozen washes.

If you haven't done so, check out the site store. There'* some GREAT products there. Link to the store is in GXP_Vince'* signature and in our LINKS section at the top of the page. A small percentage of each sale goes back to the site to help pay for server costs.

Iron on, eh? That explains why my NEBF design looked like arse. Screen printing would have been excellent.

I wish the Got Boost shirt was still available. Though I can have my local screen printer do some up cheap.

Can we get a shirt that says "Your car is neither fast nor furious" ?

I'd absolutely LOVE one of those!!

I still have to get some items myself. Just waitin' for payday.

HU heading out tomorrow.

I don't know how much interest the last one I just suggested would create. So it'* up to you if it'* worth it to put it on the store. I can always have them done locally by a screenprinter.

Absolutely!! I'll make it a simple one color design, maybe 1 black on a white shirt and 1 white on a black shirt?

Just came out of the washer and dryer. Zero fade. Upon closer inspection, I'm not so sure this is a transfer. There'* no telltale 'clear' or white border. It looks like some sort of direct print?????

Anyway, it held up better (no visible change) than a transfer. Looks ok to me!
