Ok so I am tired of still getting shit to this day for the PC talls I made. I am gonna end this shit once and for all.
I was told early last season that PC was an accepting community of athletes, filmers, etc, just looking for more people of the same mind. I am one of the most supportive and up beat people I know so I could not have been more stoked on the idea of saying I was a part of Peace Coast.
Now this is where things went wrong I guess. They have no official team, crew, or whatever the fuck you wanna call it, all you do is simply say "oh yeh I am a part of Peace Coast", add a stupid NS sig saying you heart them, or claim something about guns drunk driving and clowns and your in.
So I was in, and stoked, rocked their baby gap sized t all pre-season and wore it happily into the regular season. The t itself is such a piece of shit quality wise, and the print job on it looks like it came from one of those wallmart iron on kits. I still have the t, it has no print on it anymore and hasn't since about 3/4ths the way through the season.
Noticing that these t's really sucked I wanted to do something more legit. I looked into all the options, t's, hoodies, beenies, baller caps, you name it. I finally settled on Tall T's because NO ONE really does custom talls.
So I mock up a design with some PC "members" and then propose the idea to Mark the founder of PC. He was mad stoked on the idea and never once told me not to move forward with it. He even proposed to sell them through the website (which I have not seen online ever), don't care to check if its live now cus I really don't give a shit about PC anymore. He was also going to help me sell locally.
I printed the t's up and made sure to get ahold of the highest quality tall t's possible. This is were I first got fucked, the company I ordered from, to save money, sent me white talls that are of the highest quality on the market and black t's that had been made super poorly with cheap fabrics.
None the less, they all came out sick. I started selling them for $25 and within a weeks time dropped the price to $10 because of people requesting it.
To print the t's it cost about $6.20 per, and the shirts themselves where about $5.60 per, get shipping in there and it brings the total per t up to about $14-15 bucks. So I was loosing money.
On top of this, my old housemate used a dummy UPS account in my name to ship well over $2000 worth of stuff and then split on me leaving me to deal with the debt collectors. I had no way to prove that he had done this, and he was not about to come clean, so I dealt with it and took another blow to the wallet.
Thinking the worst of it was over, I make sure to refund everyone who never got a t and apologize for the inconvenience caused. However that seemed to not be enough for PC.
They want blood to this day and are doing everything possible to break me down. SO I leave this for you Peace Coast, you all are the biggest farce on this site. You claim to love one another, yet will deny any affiliation with me and continue to post in just about every thread I create hating on me in some manor or another. Your cause is just like every other idea that some stoner came up with, it's a great idea but never gets anywhere.
If you intended to keep it small then you should not have told anyone they could claim they where a part of it, if you wanted it to become something, well then you prolly should consider not being douches to those who can make it happen.
Oh and to the trademark bullshit, there is NO registered or pending trademark for the name Peace Coast, so stop telling people you have it trademarked.
