In printing, like everything else, you get what you pay for.

CSB:  The shop that I work for got an order for some really nice programs for a very conservative Jewish organization.  They sent the art over and someone involved with their organization had at one time won an Oscar.  Their graphic artist must have done a really quick search for "Oscars Logo" and didn't look too closely at it and put it above said person's bio.  The logo was actually a phallic symbol and didn't caught until people started receiving them from the Post Office.

If that is the case, shouldn't every ethnic group, in the United States, take their own lives,
and live the United States to all the black lives?


What?

Seriously, what?

stevenboof: xrayspx: I'm not saying "Use VistaPrint" by any means.  I don't.  But while I haven't worked there in 13 years, I'm extremely familiar with VistaPrint's process, and honestly their explanation is entirely plausible.

The whole process is automated to the point that there really aren't chances to maliciously intervene in a single arbitrary order in this way.  I mean, we had times where we're receiving 30,000 orders per hour, and I'm sure that's MUCH higher now.  Neither on the web-application side or on the Production and Fulfillment side could anyone really try and just screw with a given order set.  But mistakes happened pretty predictably and were baked into costs.

Depending on quantities ordered and the way they batch dozens or hundreds of orders together, a human could have been involved in cutting the orders, and could easily have stacked multiple orders back-to-back.

They just happened to have an "All lives Matter" order queued up right after this order?  With all the business they do?


I mean every day we see several new posts about Karens losing their minds and screaming racist nonsense at POC in public so given that there's a lot of those all lives matter fools out there? Yes. It seems pretty plausible in today's society.

I got two other peoples' EBay orders in addition to my own one time, and the company was cool about it, telling me I could keep the stuff and not send it back. Now with this story I come to realize they were sending me a secret hate message, not just making a mistake.

Have you tried not being a coont?

Black Lives Matter doesn't mean ONLY Black Lives Matter. It means Black Lives Matter AS WELL, and it's something that government/LEO don't seem to understand.

I was on the cusp of giving Vistaprint the benefit of the doubt untill I read how they sent anti-lgbtq flyers to a gay couple who ordered flyers for their wedding.
Such an odd computer glitch that sends out conservative diatribe to people who order the exact opposite thing.

So Vistaprint either made a mistake or had an a-hole employee who should be fired. Given that I've used them at least a dozen times without any issues, I'm guessing it's the latter.

smunns: She was filming herself unboxing the Black Lives Matter prints designed by Noel, an art director, when she discovered the All Lives Matter copies hiding behind them.
"I was furious," Noel told the outlet. "I just couldn't believe it. I didn't want to believe it, especially with everything going on.

And just like that, I knew it was all a setup


You mean except for the part where Vistaprint admitted that it happened?

otherideas: Only the left would believe a saying that is clearly inclusive is exclusive.

Here's a question: Does Black Lives Matter mean All Lives Matter?


All lives are not under attack though.

/only a racist or a severely mentally challenged individual would feel the need to say "All Lives Matter" in response to "Black Lives Matter."

ChrisDe: Am I supposed to record myself when I open a box now? I swear, I'm trying to keep up.


I have done so twice now, but only when dealing with returns on Amazon. Both customers claiming "it didn't work" when it did. The former stole HD cables and did a partial return and the latter wanted an accessory for free that didn't come with the base item. Both got to pay back my shipping costs (and the first one for the cables at a premium).

I've never considered videoing other unboxings to have a point, though.
