Hey guys,

I hate doing this sort of stuff but I know a few members of the community worked on their designs and may have some other sources of contact. Anyway, as the story goes I placed an order with D.C. back in November and it still has not been received. I tried contacting the owner (Joseph) via email about the issue back in December who provided me with this ambiguous response

"I'm not going to get into a story, just going to apologize and get you a tracking number within the next few days. Just wanted to let you know you are not the only person this happened to. again really do apologize."

this did not happen. no tracking number provided, no explanation. nothing. (This would be the last contact I've had). So I progressed to contact both the brand and Joseph via Facebook for an explanation and resolution, neither of which have still not been provided. I know I am not the only one who had not received their orders but they have since disabled the ability to write on their wall and removed the owners names from brand info to avoid further contact. Funnily enough, he still shows up as an admin and it would seem that he is still active on his personal fb page, uploading dance videos with his dog and his mega-cool cat meme tattoos which I presumed were partially paid for with my money.



Its a shame as they had some fairly decent products. I post this, not only as an attack on the brand and its owner, but to avoid others wasting their hard earned on a product they will probably not receive. If you have had an positive experience with them, by all means let me know.

    That's actually quite a shame. Those patches they had were pretty tight, I was going to purchase some but their store was down. Thanks for the warning, I'll spend my money elsewhere.

    Bummer. At least their store is down. Have you tried disputing the transaction through your credit card or paypal? Seems to me you have more than enough grounds.

    Dang, this is a bummer.

    Happened to me as well. I also saw his personal Facebook and it really pissed me off. What a sleezebag.

    Damn dude, that sucks :(



    By the looks of his teeth, he's obviously not adding a dentist appointment to his shitty tattoo fund

    seems a real shame, Joseph was a breeze to work with and paid up for everything no problemo. i know he had an issue or two with international shipping but he needs to really wind his neck in and get his shit together.
  • ANCESTRY

    i don't really understand how you can have an 'issue with international shipping' though. we all do it and its not difficult. if there ever is a problem you don't just cower away and destroy any evidence of it ever happening. I'm probably being over-dramatic but it really shits me how drongos (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=drongo) like this piece of shit pull this sort of thing.
  • JeremyRichie

    Seemed like a rad dude, and really eager about his brand. It's lame to hear he's stiffing you guys. We've had problems with international shipping in the past and we usually send out a replacement order, theres even been a case where we refunded if the replacement order didn't show up. If you want your brand to ever be a success you can't just ignore that stuff you have to handle it and stay on top of communication with it or shit like this happens. You get pissed off customers who actually wanted to spend money on your product letting everyone know you fucked them over.

    Bad form on his part.

    international shipping problems are tough. i just had a guy i had sent a shirt to brazil say he never got it and the amount of time that had passed, it should have been there. i gave him two options since it had been a while. one was that i refund his purchase and the other was that i could try shipping again, him getting notice of shipment and tracking, but if that one got lost, i couldn't afford to keep mailing shirts with them never arriving. he chose the shirt, so i tossed in a second shirt i was overstocked in his size on too. with international rates going up again, a lost package for even just one tee, counting your tee you resend is about $35

    See this is what I don't get either. I've never run a full on brand or anything but I sold a few tees here and there a while back. Did about 200 orders in total which ain't loads but I shipped all over the world from my local post office and I never had a problem other than it taking a while... it wasn't even that expensive. We're talking roughly a quarter of my orders being international so that's 50 tees all successfully shipped from my local post office

    Issues with international shipping do arise it's definitely not a mythical issue. However as the owner of a brand when these issues arise you handle them.

    Probably one of the biggest reasons why I'm pissed is that the designs you did for him were INCREDIBLE, and now they aren't going anywhere. I would've loved to rock that lightsaber patch.

    Seems to me that its an issue of laziness, immaturity, and cheapness. I know what its like to get in over your head and sometimes is easier to bury your head in the sand than to man up and fix the real issues.

    That's upsetting. I was pretty proud of the work I did with him, and he was incredibly easy to work with throughout the whole process. What bugs me after reading this is, maybe a week or so before his line dropped, he kept going on to me about promoting it on my facebook, twitter, tumblr, etc... I did, I vouched for it, said it was going to be killer and everyone would dig the product- ended up getting a lot of my followers into it, and then this happened. I don't know what's going on with him since he hasn't contacted me since the line dropped, but it's pretty disappointing.

    Same here, man. Pretty shady, he had a lot of people supporting him. I even hit him up on Facebook giving him a heads up to this thread. Didn't even respond. Flakey.
