    Calm down, my friend. Rest assured things are progressing. As was detailed in the first post itself, the sweatshirts are custom made, on order. Amogh and the team are managing everything while balancing their professional and personal lives. Let's be a little bit patient. The goods will arrive :)

    Hi everyone. Its a sincere request that please be a bit patient as a lot of work needs to be done after collecting the order because of the customization. We are not professionally into this like business establishments and the stuff is not ready. Once all the sweatshirts are customized and ready, they will be packed and shipped together to everyone who ordered.

    Totally appreciate the efforts and pain being taken by you guys! This forum is for us and by us and not a business establishment. This ain't a Snapdeal or Flipkart wherein we can track our orders. Just a bit of patience. The product will be delivered. The wait should be worth it! :happy:

    It is a little disappointing to see the kind of messages and e-mails that I have been receiving. In fact : some have also reported fraud to Instamojo (our online payment partner) without even checking the updates in this thread.

    Please relax! We are NOT running away with your money. Those of you who have purchased stickers from TFI know that we do try and keep the turn around time as short as possible.

    Let me try to summarise in a nutshell what has happened and the current status:

    1. Based on our experience with keychains and stickers we envisaged a certain demand (quantity) for the sweatshirts. Based on this demand we ordered all the required material for the sweatshirts. Do note that at this point we had invested money from our pockets. No one today works without requiring a signficant advance, especially the garment / tailoring business. We also placed orders for the shipping boxes.
    2. For this quantity the preparation time for the sweatshirt was envisaged as 7-10 days. Based on this we claimed a delivery time of 10 days
    3. However when we started taking the orders we received 4x orders of what we had envisaged. While the response pleased us the implications of it were something we had not considered.
    4. First thing we had to do was place an order for the extra material. Now the sweatshirt material comes from North India and is not available locally. We did check with some local dealers but the quality of that material was not acceptable. We could have gone ahead and got the sweatshirts done with that material just to meet the deadline. But different members would have received different quality of sweatshirts. That was completely unacceptable to me.
    5. Apart from the sweatshirt material we also had to place order for additional shipping boxes. Those have been just delivered to me a few minutes back. (Attaching an image of the delivery slip for those who think we are frauds!)
    Things are falling in place and I am doing everything at my end to push all the involved agencies and get the sweatshirts as soon as possible. But I also do not want this to happen at the cost of quality. Rs.1000/- is not a small amount and I care as much as you do about every single penny you have paid.

    In hindsight : had I said a delivery time of three weeks at the onset this would not have happened. But honestly, even in my wildest dreams I had not imagined the kind of response we got. We screwed up and we accept our mistake. But that does not mean we are frauds, unprofessional and/or had intention of sitting on your money doing nothing with it.

    Be kind please!

    Thanks Amogh for the update and appreciate the efforts you guys have put in. It is indeed sad to hear about the fraud accusation on the team. As pointed out by many other members that the forum is by us and for us, so we all have a collective responsibility to the forum. Moreover we all joined the forum voluntarily as Fiat fans.
