The only way to really know the extent of errors is to pull reports from the service side. Hopefully that's being done.
I'm one of the few vocal people who don't mind the Anvil shirts (I dislike AA as a company, for one thing), find them pleasantly soft, and am not bothered by the sizing differences.
As such, I don't go over all my purchases (and I have made a number of them, as 'woots purchased' numbers do not appear to include side sale numbers, and I've bought a number of side sale items in the last few months) with a fine toothed comb looking for mistakes, or really glance at them other than to throw them on after my shower in the morning.
I did have an odd feeling the other day as I brushed my teeth and glanced at my shirt in the mirror. The print seemed off; like the print was just a bit lower on one side than on the other. I chalked it up to my imagination, but vowed to measure it when I got home, since it was the first time I felt maybe my print was off a bit. Problem is I didn't, and now I can't recall which shirt it was, since I wear woot shirts to work almost every day. I remember it was a side sale shirt, but other than that I'm drawing a blank. I doubt I will remember until the next time I wear said shirt, which could be months with how infrequently I re-wear a shirt due to owning so many.
My point is, basically, with regards to misprinted shirts, there are a) people who are diligent about looking for mistakes/QC problems, b) those who are completely unwitting of mistakes/QC problems, and c) people who are aware but are not great about investigating or pursing mistakes.
I'm in that latter category. I can say, however, that somewhere in the region of 70-100 shirts, by my estimate, I have been fairly satisfied with the products I've received. Enough to assume that the perceived 'misprint' was just me looking at the shirt askance, rather than the shirt being a dud. If the print was crooked, no one bothered to point it out (and I work with a bunch of teenagers, who are not known for holding their tongues about such things).
