We here at Irregular Times have a favorite punishment for companies that inundate us with spammy, off-topic marketing ploys in our comments section: an honest review.
This morning, XG Tees cut and pasted their promotional link into an e-mail blast indicating that its company “offers a wide range of products for you to create custom T shirts, or design your own shirts online.”
I’ll be brief. The website is slow, with interminable progress bars:
The “online design” section loads in an utterly broken, useless form if you head to it directly:
The design section works only if you first head to another section in which you select a t-shirt brand and color. The t-shirts brands made available to print upon are from factories in the third-world, made less expensive than local production through low worker pay, lax workplace regulations and low environmental protection. All so you can wear XGTees’ chintzy clip art:
You have to buy at least six shirts, shirts may have only six colors, and your image must fit in a box of 11.5 inches by 11.5 inches, a noticeably smaller part of the shirt than Skreened’s 11×17 inches.
Have I forgotten something? Oh, right: the link to the XG Tees website. Well, I’m sure you can find the website yourself if you look hard enough. I’m just not sure why on Earth you’d want to try.
