UPDATE: So if you already read below…then skip it and just go here. After me praising zazzle…i came to realize they suck. So here it is, normal as can be at cafe press. If you got a better website to make shirts let me know. thanks
So I made this design to wear to wordcamp 2007 in San Francisco next month. And I wanted to go ahead and put it out there for anyone who wanted it. So I uploaded it to Bountee which I thought was one of the coolest cafe press wannabe sites out there. Then I get this email:
Thanks ever so
much for uploading a design to Bountee.com – we really appreciate your time and effort, but unfortunately the voting period has
ended and the Bountee community has not given your Tee-Shirt enough votes this time 🙁
And this means that we
won’t be able to make it available for your fellow Bountee friends to buy.
We hope that you understand – and
The design that you submitted can still be viewed here:
We’re really sorry that this one didn’t
work out, but we hope that the next one will send them racing for the YES! button.
And as our grandmother used to
“Don’t be discouraged. It’s often the last key in the bunch that opens the lock”.
Have a nice
And I’m not mad cause they said no to my design. I don’t have that much of an ego…I’m mad cause I don’t think their site is very organized with it’s process. They rely on the “community” to vote designs in, and I actually think that no one voted on my design which is why it was revoked, but I haven’t taken the time to vote on anyone’s shirt. So I’m sure that no one wants to take the time to vote on mine either.
I just don’t think that’s a good model. Designers are fucking lazy. Regardless…I dont’ care, I just thought bountee was going to be a great replacement to CafePress. Especially after all their talks about their great printers.
So here’s the save wordpress shirt. I signed up at zazzle cause they got a great review from techcrunch. I actually really like their model. You can get any size, color, style shirt you want with the design.
