Default Zazzle Dazzles!

The shirts arrived, and except for the yellow bits of my rainbow text not reading all that well over the grey sweatshirt color, they look great! My "natural" color T-shirt is super. Next time I will have a better idea of the ink coverage. But I really like the feel of this ink. After washing, it's nice and soft - not plasticky. And the shirts are Hanes and very good quality. I was impressed with how well the detail in the design fared. The texture in the water and the concrete as well as the cables on the bridge are all visible.

Service was speedy, although if they'd used a shipper other than DHL it would have been speedier.... Our box unaccountably went to Fresno (well off even the most generous path from shipping location to our door) on Thursday night and didn't budge all day Friday if the tracking info is to be believed. However, the box arrived this morning only slightly the worse for wear. Good quality cardboard seems to have withstood a fairly decent hit to one edge. I hate DHL. Anyway, contents were safe and sound!

Oh, good. I am relieved. I woke up the other night thinking what if Franca’s job was a mess or something!

But I agree with you on the quality of the t-shirts, and of the printing.

You and me both. (Sorry to have kept you up!) I really can't imagine how we could have gotten the job done better or more speedily anywhere else. Excellent recommendation - thank you!
