I got declined by New Era because I haven't been in business for over a year. I honestly feel like that is a poor reason to decline me wholesale pricing. What do they expect me to do? Use terrible quality hats for a year and then get New Era ones? I don't want my brand to be associated with poor quality hats or clothes so I went to the big boys first. My T-Shirt wholesaler is one of the best around but now that I got declined by New Era I am extremely frusttrated.
I am going to call their world headquarters again and ask to speak to their manager and see if they can make an expection for me or something (I don't see why they would but I might as well try, right?).
I guess thats the end of my rant, I could say more but I feel many members around here lately feel like I am "whoring" my company now. Yes, I use the word "whoring" because a member litterally used that word to describe how I was carrying on about promoting myself, even though I am not promoting myself at all (and I will be honest, I will eventually) because all I was doing was making a few threads about helping with a name and showing off my first design. Not once did I link to my website or mention any pricing info. I have been here for years I didn't think asking for help would be a problem.
I have turned what was a rant about New Era into something it doesn't need to be so I will shut myself up now. This isn't suppose to cause any problems or forum drama so ignore it if need be.
I <3 you guys btw
