T-shirt update 8/30/2013
« on: August 30, 2013, 09:31:00 AM »
Just a quick update and apology.

Everyone who has ordered a T-shirt and haven't received it - I owe you some major 'I'm sorry's

Me moving to California really twisted up the situation.
The printer will be shipping the individual t-shirts to everyone that has already paid (there are 14 of you i believe).
There was some mis-communication (my fault) that caused a delay in this.
Your shirts are being packed and shipped within the next 5 days.

Additionally, I'll be sending all 14 of these extremely patient WKC users a little extra somethin somethin as a token of my appreciation and apology.

To resolve this issue moving forward, I've ordered 40 extra shirts that I will hold as inventory.
This means that when future shirt orders happen, they will ship from my house - immediately.
I'll also be converting the commerce system to a full store, so you can buy handles, shirts, stickers, and more (;)) all in one transaction.
This will also allow the WKC to offer promotions, discounts, etc.

If you're planning on ordering a shirt - please wait 1 week :)

Great idea Troy! That should really streamline the process. When you find some time how about making another style? Maybe a white T with a brown kettle?  :D

Everything was shipped on the 7th. My giant box O shirts arrives tomorrow, which means it didn't actually "go out" until monday I think.

Please let me know if your shirt doesn't arrive by friday. I sent the printer envelopes to get 12 of the shirts sent out at the same time the 'inventory' was shipped to me. I'm assuming that they shipped at the same time as my package. I've sent a followup email to him to check when they went out.

Did anyone receive a shirt in the mail this week?

Nothing here yet.  I was cleaning a grill in the driveway when the mailman came in the hopes of conjuring up a shirt, but no dice.

Hey guys, sorry if this is already answered but do the purchase of these shirt go to support the cost of this site?
I am not a collector, but I do have a small collection.

bad news: shirts didn't ship from the printer

good news: at least they're not lost in the mail

better news: i have them and will be shipping them ASAP.

disclaimer: this week's schedule sucks. I'll be working about 75 hours this week for my job, and my wife has art things happening during the evenings - so I'm literally working and sleeping with no spare time for several days this week. Shirts will likely ship on Saturday, possibly Thursday or Friday if I can get my kids to help out a bit.

In the meantime - i'm taking down the t-shirt ordering button.
I'll be putting up an actual store-front so you can order shirts, stickers, patches, and handles all in one cart without having to jump through hoops. This will save on shipping and make things easier.

Thank you everyone for your patience. The t-shirt project raised enough funds to cover several months of WKC costs :) (which means my wife won't kill me)
