Venting about my OOT bags

Recommended Posts

So I splurged on the $3.99 Dharma Trading Co. bags and paid another $200 to get them all screenprinted and was really stupid and didn't pay an extra $15 and wait an extra 2 weeks to get the Pantone color match, and now I hate the blue (which has no green in it so it isn't turquoise) and red (which looks neon next to the blue) that is on the screenprinted bag. Do I pay another $550 to redo them all? Or maybe skip the blue and only do red, to bring it down to $500? Or do I say screw it and give everyone bags that I feel poorly represent my taste and style and everything, and doesn't match anything else?

I'd use them. Otherwise you'd be up to $1000 for bags. Can you post a picture? Your guests will probably think they look great.

I agree, screw it! Is it really worth the money? Personally I would rather spend the money on more wedding related things. Its nice of you to want to please your guests too but you and your FI are #1.

I concur. You're the only one who will notice, and frankly, you'll have other things on your mind.

But these are the gifts they are going to walk around with and go home with. I guess they were the one thing I actually cared about, oddly enough. I don't even have good stuff to put inside them besides the pashminas. I just wanted the bags themselves to be the presents. But yeah, $1k on bags does seem crazy. I figured reordering a few less bags ends up at $329. I guess I can do iron on instead, with just one simple color.

I'll try to take a photo...

can you call customer service and let them know how unhappy you are blah blah blah? try to get them to re-do for you or cut you a huge discount. i think Tami (foxytv) had a similar situation with her travel mugs - she wound up getting another entire order for FREE!

 

and PS - POST A PIC!

Can you iron over the screen printing? Not sure if that would work but might be worth a try if you really hate them.. I wouldn't pay for them again though.. After the trip, most bags get stuffed in a closet.

 

someone else did cute ones where they sewed a pocket on one side.. maybe you can sew something to the outside, over the screen printing.
