!!! WARNING !!! : serious problems with AE_LIVE prints from The Designers Republic

Recommended Posts



I opened up a paypal dispute with them yesterday for the onesix print ordered on 29th Dec which still hasn't been delivered. Gotta say, it's worrying how bad their communication is.

I wonder how many of us got stiffed? I'm not sure if the multiple complaints make me feel better or worse. Neither of mine have been delivered, preordered both, and he claimed he can't track my order. Real sloppy. I asked when my order(s) shipped and he never replied.

I just got a reply, shipped today for delivery tomorrow. The guy who does the shipping was off sick and is just back today and is going through all the messages, hopefully you guys will get some response also. It does seem like a very staff-lite operation.

Did you go through PayPal?

Yeah, Paypal Resolution Centre

Well, I was going to wait another week since I live in the states, but I think I'll file one tonight. I'm not a big fan of the lack of communication.

..Received today a kind and rational response from tDR.: the second press will be able to fly to my home, and excess shipping charges will be refunded. I don't know how much my complaint on paypal has been decisive, or if, in a distant day, I would have had an answer in any case, but I must tell that, now that the post seems to resolve, i already look back with nostalgia to the glorious day when I decided for that !!! WARNING !!!


Knowing that you all on alert, I will not miss me from telling you the ending of this dangerous adventure..

I'm glad the issue was sorted out and we all got our posters. They were delivered in unnecessarily oversized tubes, I guess that's why postage was so expensive. They're heavy duty. i'm now using them as speaker stands

      The Designers Republic is releasing a pretty dope looking book helped funded by by a kickstarter. 

      I was looking on google just now and i found the kickstarter link and an article about it:
      It will be called "A to Z of The Designers Republic" 

      Backers should be getting there books next month
      Hope they release more for people that didn't have that chance, isn't that how this stuff works?

      We're all now familiar with how SYRO's artwork reflects the costs associated with putting out a record - Richard has even said each releases' info is tailored for that release (e.g.: vinyl version has different data than say the CD version).
      But what about the digital versions? the iTunes artwork for SYRO is just a chartreuse circle with "APHEX TWIN" "SYRO" in it (the full release I believe comes with a digital booklet), so unless there is more, the numbers for the digital versions aren't there (do the Bleep downloads have different artwork?).
      It's certainly an interesting concept - nice too they included mention of the Caustic Window Kickstarter and the "Making of Windowlicker" video costs, although how that relates to SYRO is yet to be seen.
      It will be neat to try and extrapolate the # of pressings and costs once all the versions are out (assuming of course they started off with actual costs and divided by the number of pressings for each format).

      In case anybody here's interested, there's a documentary about the Designers Republic on Kickstarter, Work, Buy, Consume, Die. That is all.
