    CPs,

    Please share this info with your members and on your Facebook pages:

    I just got off the phone with Zazzle. I spent a few hours updating the store two days ago, and normally, we should only have to wait 24 hours for those changes to replicate. The old 2015 IBRD tee shirts have been removed, but the new 2016 IBRD tee shirts haven't shown up yet. The customer service rep said that since their servers are experiencing a high volume of changes, it may be up to seven days for the new shirts to show up; it could be less than seven days too. sigh.

    Everyone, please keep checking the site to see if they are there yet.

    Thanks,

    TJ

    Its too bad that the only company that makes t-shirts is Zazzle.

    They're the only ones who offer wicking (micro fabric) tee shirts, what most people order through our store. If you know of some other online tee shirt store with this type of fabric, reasonable pricing, and store front software, you let me know.

    Im sure you can think of a reason for every site I name of why they arent good, but Custom Ink comes to mind first. What did they lack?

    Also- I dont see the design on the main page. Would it be possible to share some good news with the bad? You cant buy the shirt yet... but here's what it looks like?

    You don't see the winning design in the contest thread and the message that goes with it? (https://www.thebarefootrunners.org/...ng-day™-tee-shirt-design-contest-is-on.19209/) When the shirts are available, I will plaster the design everywhere, as I always have done.

    Please feel free to check into this and let me know, but it looks like Custom Ink ONLY ships to the US and Canada.

    From Custom Ink: "CustomInk
    headquarters are located in Northern Virginia, about 7 miles outside of Washington D.C. Although we are headquartered in Virginia, we serve customers all across the United States and Canada, with facilities and offices in Charlottesville, Reno, and Dallas/Flower Mound.

    The BRS is international. Zazzle is international. See their many locations below. I can create a tee shirt in our store and have that tee shirt propagate to all of their print/ship locations. Some of our international members have complained that to order a shirt from the US incurs a prohibitive shipping expense (for example, from the US to Germany; from the US to the UK; etc.). By using Zazzle's many locations, we save our members tons of money in shipping. As I have been told many times, they appreciate this.

    I am looking out for all of our members, US and international, as I always have these past 6-1/2 years.

    I have found in my many years on this rock, that it is always best to propose solutions when making a complaint, it gives a bit more validity to your concerns. Honestly, when dismissing the chance to propose a solution by saying, "you won't like it anyway" you kind of sound like a fifth grader. Just my opinion.

    TJ - Thanks for all the work you do to make sure this society remains an integral part of the barefoot running community.
