Merchandising, Merchandising!
« on: August 29, 2014, 01:14:15 am »
Dragoneer's new quest to separate morons from their money continues, with the newly opened "FA Merch" store. A curse on whoever or whatever introduced him to that word. The ad for the store replaced the FA:U ad at the bottom of FA recently, which is a disappointing as it interrupted the annual tradition of the FA:U banner staying in that area about three months past the end of the convention.

It's quite clear a lot of time was spent setting up the store. It really shows through on some items, like stickers where white text is used, throw pillows featuring the torso of some fetish monster, and tote bags that say "OBEY THE". We put the website's name on everything!.

Though, when you really think about it, selling a bunch of merchandise with fucked up designs is rather fitting for FA.

well its a link to a cafepress store? How is that different, haha

And the fucked up designs are just probably because you upload an image and the website tries to do its best to fit them on the various products, i'm not sure if its possible to align them better using the website, or if modified images for each product have to be uploaded
