I'll bet a lot of people got pregnant over the holidays. We're going to need those maternity shirts back eventually.

Not exactly the most convincing argument, since most babies are born in late Summer, to be exact according to US stats September 16th.
I don't think I'm happy to wait 'til late July or August.

I was born in late AugustStick out tongue We actually have a lot of August babies here.

Anyways, once we have an update on this, we will announce in the news. Also moved this away from Feedback forum since it's not feedback. Thanks!

Well I defy the stats. I was sparked in the heat of Summer and saw my first glimpse of this world in late March, so my Mom replaced her wide shirts with maternity clothes right about Christmas and look for more about this time of the year.

I am so jealous of you summer babies. January 2nd here... the dreaded Christmas/Birthday gift time of year and also the day the holidays are over and everyone begrudgingly goes back to school/work. I read something about how it’s in the top 5 rarest birthdays and one is allowed to say it “sucks” because it’s Straw Day. It is also Science Fiction Day (for those in need of new ideas to design for lol). Stick out tongue

I can relate because I was born on Veteran's day 11/11/62

But I also have always had a soft heart for the Vets and don't mind sharing my birthday with them.

Scott answered about the shirts or about summer babies? Smile

I hope it's not the shirts (but fear it is) because it looks so bad to have shirts come up with the big red "Sorry, this Style is temporarily sold out. Please select another Style."

I truly people people don't read that. they see the red warning and think the design is not available and move one.

If they move on, it is because they wanted the shirt in the preview and not any other. Most times I don't look for just any T-shirt and if I want a red one I want a red one and not black or white which holds for any color.

Though a huge portion of my shirts are black and comfy (some describe this style baggy). I call it convenient and no fashion worries.

However I have enough friends, who care about their outfits greatly and the current frequent out-of-stock notes must be very frustrating for their type of shoppers.

...or make that yellow (the notice that the style/color is unable) so it's differentiate from OOS stuff.

...or let us bulk edit all or shirts

...I've had a lot of coffee...

I wonder if the experiment worked for them. I sold 35 shirts in December, which is only about 5% of my total product sales for December. That seems pretty low to me. If I had to bet, I would bet that I lost sales because of it.

ZBug, they are apparently limiting color choices as well as styles.

I admit I choose comfort over fashion too.

I'm curious too. My shirt sales seems lower than usual too--but then so did everything, so I can't really judge.

It was frustrating they limited the colors too. Brown [women's] tees, bring 'em back.

shirts... no answer available.

I was going to place an order for shirts (actually tank tops) but the color and style choice on Zazzle was so limited that I had to go to a competitor. I Really wanted to order them from Zazzle but . . . .

I too am curious when the colors and style selection will be back. Hopefully soon :-)

Does this mean kids styles are returning back? I am waiting to buy my daughter a next size up girls style t-shirt before summer ends here... I also have had several requests from customers re baby tutu rompers, I do hope they return soon Love Would be marvelous if you can tell us so we can pass on this message to potential customers to come back and buy thanks Roses My son was my New Year's gift and born beginning of October and yes the maternity ward was very busy at that time of year!!! Laughing

I fear since there is "no answer", it's going to be awhile--at least through Easter, maybe longer if they are trying to gauge sales. I hope they are not thinking of doing away with the variety of styles and color.

--Not starting roomers!-- just thinking aloud.

Right now, it's too limited. And my favorite style shirt is on the no list. Sad

Still waiting.... I hope they return soon. It would be good to know as if not best maybe have to transfer on to an in stock one. I am hoping it will not have to come to that but sales have not been so good since the reduction in options for kids and babies sadly.

How long does it take to ask and answer this one question?
Posted: Tuesday, January 29, 2019 3:19:29 PM
oOo

I was looking for this thread. Thanks.

Flower girls have frills.
I think the frills are better suited for festive occasions, so I chose this style, despite the current lack of availability.


Shower of Love (SVG) VZS2 Flower Girl Toddler T-shirt

I seriously miss this one and all the others.

How long is a piece of string? Laughing As soon as we know, you will be the first to know. Apologies for the delay.

Any apparel items that are still out of stock today will be deleted from my store, because they're now dead weight.

I will not experiment with other styles going forward. It is a waste of my time to make things that are going to be hidden based on a premise that too much variety hurts sales.

Maybe Zazzle has some great plan for apparel they haven't shared with us yet. Maybe they don't.

I can't work with what I don't know. What I do know is that hidden things don't sell, so that's where I'm starting.

ETA: And...done. Changed styles for a few, but the lack of diversity among the models was made a whole lot worse by putting things out of stock - no way to market designs specific to some groups unless all you show them is a flat shirt with no model. Really, why bother. Deleted all of those. So much for marketing to underserved communities.

I think that maybe they will not be back or they would be back now
And for Zazzle to still have this on the shirt web page.
available on 158 styles
Will make customers find another place to buy from because it is miss leading.

I hope they come back, the nicest shirt styles have been axed. Makes no sense, especially in the baby, tank top, and maternity departments.
