Does anyone legitimately feel bad for this idiot? $12 USD for a shitty Chinese patch? Lacks basic understanding of the English language?
aaaaand this is why there is a Denver goodwill full of /out/ patches.
So fucking glad this guy took the bullet.
I was being such a fucking idiot trusting that this was a reasonable group of people with whom I could feel a certain comradery .
I am only out a few hundred bucks and I havbe learned another valuable lesson.
It's just as well, there seem to be plenty of people making patches now.
I only took on the project because it did not look like anyone else was going to.
Feel bad for the guy? He saw a demand for a product and attempted to produce some to make a profit.
Sure they aren't amazing quality. It's a fucking patch you're going to half assed sew on to your POS milsurp pack. Nobody else will notice the stitching isn't perfect.
It's $12. If you don't like it, don't buy it. You can clearly see what the quality is like. If you want a better one, go fucking make one and stop bitching about it you worthless cunt. Plenty of products out there that suck worse than a $12 patch.
I don't want a patch, so I'm not going to buy one. Stop trying to degrade someone else's attempt to sell something that a bunch of people asked for.
dude. your patches were quality, you took actual time to make them [what felt like weeks if not a month or two]
this guy with the ads and chinese patches literally made patches as fast as he could to get a fast cash flow, not taking quality or comraderie into consideration; you did and that is why we supported you, and you jumped the gun by dumping them at the good will.
you made a mistake anon, your patches were going to be well received because they were made with love, the dude with the china patch made his with greed, and poor hand.
that should be your valuable lesson.
>$12 dollar patch that cost less than 50cents to manufacture, when people sell their 2-4$ manufactured quality patches for fucking 99 cents to 3-4 dollars.
There was one anon who ate the whole cost and gave them away for free. It's supposed to be a small to no profit thing. Not the greedy money grab shit that the china anon is trying to peddle.
So you're saying you spent hundreds of dollars, made good quality patches, then chucked that shit in a goodwill bin because you didn't get any bites?
Because I'd probably buy anyone's patches provided they aren't shit.
First of all some of them are like $5
Second if all, not all suppliers can make them for 50 cents each, especially if not many were ordered.
If you can make it for 50 cents, then why don't you fucking do it.
Oh that's right. You cant.
The other guy took the risk, paid upfront costs, and is now charging to recoup it.
Do you even business bruh?
as far as i know i was one of the first people to do a patch run and sell them on 4chan. i was selling the patches for $4 each shipped i believe (it has been a few years) and still made profit on each one. the patches i sold were velcro backed, had more colors, had a more complex shape, and were higher quality. i only ordered 100 patches and after selling them i more than doubled my investment.
$12 per patch is completely absurd.
I made the sc/out/ patch that ivan is currently selling. I had splatcats shield and roundguys round patch. I really wanted the bear with mora patch. I had some extra cash and thought i would get some made and sell them at cost to break even. That way I would get a patch and anybody else who wanted one could get one as well. After the shitstorm over the $12 patch with $35 shipping I figured the hassle wasnt worth it. I could just see people getting a patch, claimimg it was shit and demanding a refund. If some one filed a claim on my paypal and froze my paypal account I would be fucked because a lot of my bills are paid automatically through paypal. I also really didnt want anyone from 4chan having my return address so I was going to put an anonymous return. So if any patches got lost or couldnt be delivered I would have to refund and would never get patch returned. So when Ivan offered to buy them and sell them I thought it was a great deal. I got what i wanted. A bear and mora patch, broke even, and pat hes are available to other sc/out/s. Also, all those people giving Ivan shit should know he is selling the patches he bought from me at a LOSS. I dont know if it was just a halloween special or what but he isnt making any money on those patches. He is losing money with every patch sold at 0.99. Just thought you sc/out/s should know.
Cool, then just order some more. Hell, I'd buy them. Still hasn't been anyone on here besides Chinese anon selling the shield patches.
Bring the patches to market or quit being a weepy faggot.
First, thanks for making the patches man. You risked the cost and put in the time.
Ivan may be taking a small loss from the patches, but many people may go to the site for the patch and end up buying a few other things. That's what I did. I bought the patch (1 per person as of now) and ended up buying some surplus gear too.
Now I know where to get some good gear online. Ivan is really quick for answering questions too, good guy to deal with.
because you're a retard, that's why. my instructions were very simple. email me first. tell me how many patches you want. i'll tell you the price and what email to send the payment to.
i've had idiots that would send me the money without ever contacting me, send me the wrong amount of money, give me the wrong address (how the fuck can you not even know which town you live in?), etc. everything that could go wrong went wrong. the vast majority of the orders went fine, but even a small amount of retards such as yourself turned me off from ever bothering to sell anything on 4chan.
Listen man, if you don't want to make it a business out of it and run any kind of customer service, totally cool. But you really just underscored my point that you're a weepy faggot.
Give me your vendor or any patch specs, and I'll get the ball rolling myself.
