Post a pic. Hard to tell w/o seeing it, but if it doesn't look like what Narfcake's pic, then it's probably a misprint. If that's the case, contact service@woot.com. They're awesome!

We're hoping you've already mailed in (support@woot.com), but let Member Services know to be on the lookout for your issue.

My version of night moth arrived today.

I am woebegone.

Off center


Folded in half, compared to the original also folded in half.

Urf, mine is probably in the mailbox right now, I hope it's symmetrical!

Hey, when did service@woot.com become support@woot.com? Or are they interchangeable? Or have I been doing it wrong all along???

Recently. Way recently. Both should work for the moment but support is being phased in, and service is being phased out.

No despair needed. It's a really lovely design, and if it were MORE on angle, I could say it's flying...but it's JUST enough off that either I will look tipped, or those around me will feel wobbly looking at it.

I should still get a confirmation of receipt from support, right? I emailed last night, no attachments, and still no reply this morning. Usually, the auto-response came through within 10-15 minutes...

I'm sorry your moth didn't arrive as expected! :-(

FWIW, 4/5 of the shirts that came to me have printing "issues" of some sort, either bad registration leading to a blurry design, off center print, or both. I'm fairly picky in how the shirts come out, so it was a little disappointing to get my three Nightmoth remix shirts (two of which were deemed "good enough" and sent to a charity auction with half a dozen other designs, one I kept for myself) and have them not perfect. The one I kept is off center and has a slight registration issue.

My daughter's copy of "Playful Foxes" is off center by 2cm or so, but she's 10, absolutely loves it, and won't notice. The printing is clear and gorgeous.

My copy of "Totally Awesome Deer" is nearly perfect except for the clouds where the second coat after the under base is about 1mm off. Again, I don't think anyone else would ever comment or notice while I was wearing it, but I did when opening the package.

I was not planning on sending a message to service asking for a refund, because what I want most is perfectly printed items. Just posting here to let people know they are not alone with the printing woes.

That is a very good pokey stick. A replacement is on the way, thank you to all involved in making it happen and fingers crossed it is straight enough.

Artulo...I am sad to hear that. I have been reluctant to buy from the side sales because of all the errors reported, but for Night Moth it was a risk I was willing to take.

It's entirely possible. (I'm sure you know to mail support@woot.com, but I feel like I should remind you anyway, and we've alerted them to the issue as well!)

It doesn't really look that off-center to me; the design is "centered" but rotated; there should be much more ink on the left of middle than right, I believe. I think the midline of the design should fall through the right tail of the triangle and just to the left of the kneeling person's torso, cutting off the arm/leg. If you fold your shirt in half, what's on each side?
ETA: Of course, I'm not looking at your shirt itself, and it's hard to tell from the image exactly what the design is supposed to look like (at least for me), so [insert large grain of salt here].

This is far off center from my perspective.

My Nyan cat is really striped too. Also, the bottom layer of the pillow (supposed to be purple) is kind of rainbow colored. I love the design and the shirt is great but just a bit disappointed that I paid $15 for this. Don't know if it's worth talking to customer service if they're all printed like this - and I am mostly happy. The design was just meant to be printed on gray.

That's right. One of the "Honest 200". Arggggg

I'm wearing mine right now (size ML), and I have to say that it's just the way the halftones were done by the artist. FWIW, it's not the only design of his to end up with such a look when up close.

My Nyan's Cat seems just fine and I'm happy to have yet another item with this design that makes me smile so much. However, my Balance seems off center (and this just seems extra wrong give the name) and looks like someone slashed the top with a pen mark. It also is really sticky on the inside but I think this should wash out right?
All things aside I'm loving the purple and I hope for another color themed side sale. I looked at the colors Narf linked too and I vote for Mint!

Doesn't look bad, but can you see the issue already? ...


Closer ...


Another closeup ...


Olive closeup for comparison ...


This was the same on all the men's shirts I bought from MM to MXL, which suggests to me that this affected the entire run.

I wouldn't be fretting at all if it came out somewhat off-center or crooked, since those issues are "one-off" and FC isn't a design that requires such anyways, but registration issues like this affects many to all copies.

I'm looking at a different shirt here right now, in which 4 of the colors dither from one to another; for the effect to follow through required precise registration, and it printed out perfectly, so I know that Woot could do better.

(FWIW, the WM for my GF came out fine.)

That is disappointing. I wear a ML in AA, so now I'll be looking for the overlap. If and when it ever gets here.

Well, on one positive note, the colors chosen for Fresh cake remix look really nice with the purple-where there isn't a registration problem.

Yeah. I mean, the registration doesn't make them "unwearable", but seeing how I have been so looking forward to them, it is very disappointing.

For color comparisons, I posted some side-by-side here in this thread.

Yes, it is disappointing, especially on an iconic shirt like Fresh Cake. I was so happy to finally be able to order one. (I am going to have to go order MarilyMonroeCake to go with it,now, though.)

I'm still waiting on all of my purple shirts to arrive. I'm getting very anxious as it seems that there have been problems with all of the designs so far. I'm trying to stay positive but it's not easy. :/

Well artulo and Narfcake were both right, I did notice registration issues on my copies of Fresh Cake and Totally Awesome Deer. I personally am planning on sending an email to support@woot.com because I expect they will be able to correct the issues, and the shirts are AA and I do not expect to see them at woot in the future.

For those interested here is the pictures I will be sending to them.http://imgur.com/a/BeGNd

Oh, and thanks for the term "registration" Narfcake. Makes describing the problem much clearer.

That's pretty much the way it does appear up close; it was the way the artist did the halftones.

From the derby entry, one can already see some of the line/halftone work ...

Nightlife

I think this might be slightly crooked.
Nyan's Dream

There is some problems with the registration; the stars are slightly blurry, like the screen slipped or maybe the underbase and ink aren't lined up properly?

Fresh Cake

I was surprised by just how "worn" the ink looks. I realize this is deliberate, but it was a bit more than I was expecting.

Is this off-center? I don't know; I can't tell.

Blargh, It's the lines on the cat that bother me the most. I think because the lines are so stark white that they look like they were just slapped on. I love the artwork but I just hate how it translates on the shirt specifically the cat. I'm guessing it looked a lot better on grey.
