Hey friends! This is your loyal friend and shirt-printer, Zachary T. Nelson.
I just wanted to hop on this fine website and shoot out a blog post to let you know we've been having delays. There are a few of you who have ordered shirts in the past week or so and still not received them, and that is my fault. I'm a one man fulfillment crew, and I've run into a number of problems. I've hit new kinks keeping inventory, maintaining screens, and running the business in general. For instance, I accidentally let some ink dry in one of our screens and now it won't print properly. So I'll have to re-expose a new screen to print your orders.
Look, why am I telling you this? Because despite my shortcomings, people continue to be excited about this business. I keep getting encouraging tweets, messages, instagram posts, you name it. Your patience is appreciated, and I'm confident that we're going to figure something out that works for all of us. I'm talking to some friends about ways that we can make our team more reliable. All of the time I spend on this is as a volunteer, so I've been slow to ask for help because I can't offer payment yet. But there are a lot of encouraging people who have offered to help, and I know we'll figure out a system to handle these orders.
That said, after Valentine's Day, I'm dialing back the commitment on shipping to 10-20 days. 3 weeks is a lot of time, I know! But each order is custom-printed, and I need to give myself more time to get your orders right. I want you to be able to count on a reliable timeframe to receive your orders, and since I'm a one-man team, I need more wiggle room. I've also cut the cost of shipping to be a few bucks cheaper.
note: all orders placed by feb. 1 will arrive by feb 13.
Thanks everybody for taking the time to read this! I'm super proud of what we're doing, and I genuinely believe we're going to make great things happen together. There are a lot of difficult things happening in the world, so it makes me feel so privileged to get to be a part of this charity-focused business with you.
