Sorry for the delay and not keeping you updated. We've been knocked back a bit but hopefully going live on the 8th March. Thanks for your patience!
Fingers crossed as I need a new smiley for my car.

Sadly due to the snow last week, the development has taken another knock. We're aiming to be live by the middle of next week and I'll update this thread once we're up and running. Apologies for any inconvenience!

Unfortunately we've been knocked back again with a go live date of Monday 26th of March.

For those of you who have already commented on this thread and are patiently waiting for stickers, drop me a PM with what you're after and your address and I'll see what I can sort out to post to you free of charge given that you've been waiting for so long!

From the other post you mention a few teething troubles, but need another 10days to check them out - hopefully the revamped section will be awesome as a result.

Also, I'm sure there are more people waiting on stickers than are commenting on this thread. Seems a little skewed if those being quiet / patient / feel their thoughts are covered by others are left out of your offer, while those openly grumping / commenting get free stickers. I've had PH stickers on my last 5 cars and with a recent change in steed I want to keep the trend running, however I've just watched the posts for updates rather than wade in. #JustSayin

I appreciate where you're coming from but essentially I'm trying to offer a gesture of goodwill and didn't want to create a free-for-all for free stickers. Hopefully it won't be much longer to wait now!

Our shop is managed by a third party so unfortunately the set backs have been completely out of our hands. They're moving all of their partners to Shopify platforms and it's taking longer than expected, so I can only apologise for the wait but hopefully it'll be worth it.

To set expectations, we'll be going live with a much smaller product range as despite having hundreds of designs in the old store, there were only around 50 t-shirts that made up 90% of the sales. The rest just clogged up the pages and made the designs that did sell harder to find.

They've also changed sticker supplier (explained above) which is why that range is also stripped back, but if members can let me know what they're after, I'll see what else we can get added back in.

Thanks for sticking with us! thumbup

There was a sticker which had the PH logo next to PH Username. I'm currently driving my first car in the last 10 years without one! frown

I don't suppose you've got a photo by any chance have you? I can certainly look into doing a group buy if I can get a list together. Will check with our sticker man and see what we can do!

Any chance of getting a sticker before the shop goes live?

Starting the silly roadtrip on Thursday 29th March and ideally I require a smiley sticker for the back of the barge. Possibly a V8 doing my bit for global warming one too if that’s still available? Seems appropriate for the back of a LS400 that will be doing 6500 or so miles across 3 different continents.

Fair enough, I just wanted to make a point without coming across as arsey.

Anyway, I've put myself into the list for the Group Buy.

glad I bought a bulk lot of "PISTONHEADS SPEED COMPLIANCE MATTERS" stickers before the "speed matters" became not acceptable and more boring

Probably being closed down in advance of the main site?

It now seems to be stuck with lawyers sorting out a new contract between us and our partner that runs the site. Frustrating that it's dragging on, I can only apologise. As soon as I know anything I'll let you all know!

Thank you for the reply. I’ll look forward to buying a sticker to put it on my Volvo. thumbup
