I keep adding things to the wholesale site, hoping that my good faith will lead to more orders. I'm trying to play by the new rules, not put any of my new things up on my etsy because the retailers have said they don't like competing with artists, and that they won't buy from artists who sell retail. So I'm cooperating as best I can, hoarding all of my fabulous new items in my studio, listing them on this godforsaken website, and nothing is happening. I'm getting impatient. They sholdn't ask for exclusivity if they aren't going to BUY. I'm just supposed to sit here, quietly starving and waiting for their kind attention?

And the stupid overnightprints people-- their email coupon code doesn't work, I get one service rep who says 'try again later, there's a problem with the website' and I try again all day and the next morning before calling back again and the next service rep says, "I don't know why he would have said that. Buy the cards, and email billing for a refund." So I buy the cards, and email billing for a refund, and they proceed to ignore me completely for going on 3 days now.

I hate business.
