We get a lot of great feedback from customers but we currently don't have a way to convey that on our site. We know there are some options out there - we will talk about those in a minute.
First we wanted to let you know there is a place you can see sneekis 5-star reviews. Check them out here on our etsy shop. We've had over 240 reviews and just about everyone has been positive.
These reviews are totally unbiased and unfiltered and we have no power to edit them.
Here's some highlights:
So why don't we have reviews like this on our website? Honestly, we have considered putting reviews on our website for years. There are some obvious reasons to include them. First, we would like to let people know we are a legit small company and so people who dig our stuff know they will get their shirt (you will!). Over the years, we have also had great customer service and a relaxed return policy. I think most people who have emailed us any concerns in the past can attest to that.
There are really two reasons we do't have reviews on our website. The primary reason is cost. Did you know plugging in a application to allow people to write reviews costs money? In fact, it's a monthly fee and will end up costing us thousands over time.Or we could hire a developer. Again, you can imagine how much this would cost.
The second reason is that, truthfully, the reviews other online sites offer are mostly biased and skewed. The applications they use allow them to exclude negative reviews. So much for transparency. Even if we claimed they were totally unbiased, there is no way potential customers could know this for sure.
Etsy is a third party. They don't let us control reviews and you can see unbiased opinions from real people who buy our shirts. Granted many people just leave five stars (and that's nice to see) but people also leave great comments. So check out our reviews, ask us questions, and then feel good about buying a shirt. We know you will love it.
In a world where the Empire rules, where would you stand? This hoodie puts you squarely on the side of the Rebel Alliance. Just because the Empire strikes DC it doesn't mean we all have to succumb to their will.
The hoodie itself is a light weight tri-blend. It's more of a spring time hoodie and great for layering in the super cold days. Not only is this our first zip hoodie ever, it is also our first small chest design (but we didn't make it too small).
So check it out....and tell your rebel friends.
Personally, I've only bought one gift so far this year. Luckily I never have to worry since my wife takes care of most of the gift buying. But we totally get how it feels to be gift shopping at the last minute, wondering if you order something online will it make it in time and how much extra will they charge me for shipping.
Well, we are shipping through Monday. Actually through Tuesday. But Tuesday gets tricky and depends on when you order and if we get it in the mail on time. So please, please, please order by Monday. If you order by Monday you will receive your shirt before Christmas. We also won't charge you an arm and a leg to get it there in time.We'll even upgrade to priority mail (for free) to get it to your doorstep as quickly as possible.
We have some brand new DC glory years kids tees over in our etsy shop in the Washington DC kid shirt section. We got them in heather black and grey and went with a slightly deeper rust-like Burgundy color than the last batch of adult Glory years tees we got.
We really like how these turned out so we'll keep using these colors on all the future versions of this design. We'll get more of the adult version in before the holidays to help with all your Washington DC gift giving.
We recently did a promo with the Kid friendly DC blog and some of their great blog readers gave us feedback on what they’d like to see on kids shirts. We actually were a little hesitant when it comes to kids stuff. Like Daymond John said on Shark tank, Kids stuff is a hard sell. All kids want is jersey’s of their favorite player. True. But us "grownups" love buying clothes for our kids that match what we are wearing.
So we decided to do it anyway.
So check out our Washington DC Sunset Flag kids shirts. And here are the Born to Love kids shirts. We’ll have more so keep coming back and checking. Or sign up to our newsletter and get updates of products.
Feel free to comment on what else you'd like to see.
DC Flag + Coffee equals a great t-shirt. We've been asked to bring this one back for some time now and we finally did. Also if this isn't enough Washington DC and Coffee for you check out caffeinatethecapital on Instagram or their new site District of Coffee.
The holidays are coming and we aren’t making the same mistake we made last year. Last year, we ran on the premise that we should just let our shirts sell down so we don't carry too much stock over to the next year. To some degree it worked. We sold out of most of our shirts and we had very little stock going into 2016. Great, right?
The problem is we also had emails that went something like, “Hey, I really want that cool Washington DC shirt to give as a gift for my [brother, husband, sister or wife]. People tweeted us, “Why are you sold out of everything.”
So that’s not happening again this year. All summer we have been stocking up just for the final two months of the year. So hopefully you find a Washington DC or Virginia gift for Christmas. If not, we tried.
We also have a few Virginia Kids tees
Some of you may notice we don’t do a ton of sales on our DC & Virginia tees and hats. But we also know some of you may want a deal now and then. After all, the Washington DC Metro area isn’t exactly cheap to live in. So check out our Etsy shop and head over to the “sale” section. These are all retired designs and most are Washington DC themed. The shirts are still made in the USA, high quality printing, and will be packed with care just like every other order. You get a deal, and we get to make room for some new stuff!
