Glad Rags Ink = Poor Quality & Bad Business

October 26, 2012 โ‹… by Ben Baller โ‹… 44 comments

the thing with me is, I’ve been successful because: 1. I maintain high quality products every time I sell anything with my name or brand on it. and 2. I always make deadlines and in fact, we’re the quickest turn around jewelry business in the world.

so recently I hired a company called Glad Rags Ink to handle a simple order. not only did they fuck up the delivery date promised to us, they produced piss poor shitty quality goods to us. the thing is, I’ve been around clothing and the garment industry ALL my life. my uncle made jewels…. BUT MY MOTHER WAS IN THIS BUSINESS FOR 40 + YEARS. My best friends in life own L-R-G and Diamond Supply Co. for 10 and 15 years and before them, I had friends at Stussy and other places. I know what shit quality is and what decent quality is and what these clowns produced isn’t either.
Do the right thing and give us our refund or remake this product asap. otherwise deal with the repercussions of having a person with a large following let the world know what type of scum you are

I HIGHLY SUGGEST THAT NOBODY DEAL WITH

spread the word and know that I’m like David Horowitz, we fight back. we fight for the consumer; we don’t accept guys who DON’T stand behind their word or their work. now his ass will suffer like the bum ass loser his company is.

everyone have a good day. I always do fair biz and make sure the customer is happy. this dude fucked with the wrong person and fucked up a lot of future business and as well as his reputation. thank god we have a plan B.

don’t be sad because YOU guys fucked up. I would never ever even worry about some shit that was my fault or something petty. but you’re talking about a release with my name on it, something that took 20 + years to build to this level. and a mom and pop store in chicago that put their money up front because of your shitty experiences. I’ve been in business a long time, I’ve had bad experiences too, but I stand behind my work. if it’s not what we agreed upon, I would give the customer whatever he wanted. that’s how I built respect. don’t hand me some shitty low grade print work and expect me to be happy about it when 1. it was poor quality and 2. wasn’t on time. pure facts. not opinions up for debate. that’s bad business. period point blank. you have to take losses in any biz. this WAS NOT the battle to fight. trust me. and like someone previously stated. whenever this business name is googled, they will suffer the consequences. I didn’t become rich by fucking over people. I didn’t even gain money by bad mouthing anyone. when dealing with “professionals” doesn’t matter if the business is small or big. professional work is professional work. our store is in the hood and we compete against Harry Winston daily and the ultimate lavish of elegant jewelers like chopard have outsourced work to us…. I take pride in that. what’s wrong is wrong and I have never bashed any business who just made a small mistake. I dealt with it in a civil manner at first, they wanted to act like bitches and so I took care of it on my own. don’t get mad because you tried to fart on me and I came back and shit on you. the come back is always worse and I sleep fine at night. I don’t jerk people. the work is poor. don’t be thick or in denial. I look at flawed diamonds through a 20x loupe daily… you don’t think I can see poor printing quality from plain site????? we should have got a refund or a quick turn around on a reprint and even Vince agreed to that. but you did the wrong thing and not only was it wrong, it upset me. google me bad mouthing any businesses in the history of this blog and you won’t find any. maybe a bicker about bad food or poor service. but this was all around shitty.

again, I was an asset to your company, I could have gained you many jobs and a better rep no matter what anyone else said previously. I serve as an internet yelp to people, that’s why social networking is so dangerous. you fucked me with a small dick, so I came with mandingo and inserted it anally. now you deal with the repercussions of the your actions

peace

    A brand/product is only as good as the people that represent it..Spreading the word.

  • Stephen KOctober 26, 2012 12:56 pm

    I’ve worked with Robert and Glad Rags Ink many times and every time the quality has been subpar. glad to shine the light on these bozos

  • James COctober 26, 2012 1:26 pm

    The damage of having this pop up when someone googles Glad Rags Ink is surely not worth being unable to come to a business agreement out of this – sometimes in business you need to take things on the chin, but not throw yourself under the bus.

  • GuestOctober 26, 2012 3:48 pm

    You need to hire someone to overlook your production.

  • TraeOctober 26, 2012 7:08 pm

    I don’t know Robert but I know his little brother who is queer and their friend who has l&o. Act all cool around Rowland heights but they ain’t shit. Why did you use them for work? Agreed when people google their name they will see this and that’s no bueno for biz. They will lose more money now

  • Ben BullyOctober 26, 2012 7:28 pm

    “Hey Ben, how does it feel to pick on small companies?”

    Feels like I’m much more of a man than I ever was. now can I suck your big dick Ben ๐Ÿ™‚

  • eMsT@k$October 26, 2012 7:33 pm

    Ben say no more NYC got u ! These dudes might as well lay down…..

  • Ben BullyOctober 27, 2012 1:16 am

    I’m a grown ass man crying on twitter and on facebook about some small company because I couldn’t get my way. So I tell the public to whine with me and tell malicious accusations about this company. I’m such a big man. Professional baller alright. You can cry so loud the internet can hear it.

  • longbeacjackOctober 27, 2012 7:46 am

    damn that sucks i know a guy that works there and he always rants and raves about the work that comes out of there, shit happens sometimes. If you quoting a date and that date isnt met, thats bad business then come with bullshit excuess would have set me off. regardless of who it is from BB or some high school kid. i more than likely would have been doing the same thing..

    let us know who this new print shop is Ben..

    good day

  • Ben BallerOctober 27, 2012 3:35 pm

    also, attention dummies. don’t you know I have ip addresses and it shows me where you’re posting from? even on a smart phone? it’s so obvious who is who and I have so many repeat comments/readers on my site. I know where shit comes from. I always interact with my followers or fans or friends…. me being immature is nowhere near as lame as hiding behind a computer screen and a fake name. I see you. my shit smears everywhere

  • CoryOctober 27, 2012 7:43 pm

    LOL… The reason I read the quotes, on a side note not related to this company screwing you Ben where are we on the Miami Heat bet , I will let you slide on last year paying up cause I know you all wanna cry it was a short season with an Astriks so this year my Heat against your NBA, loser pays dinner ( no wine or champagne as I am not balling like you )

  • CrazyMTFOctober 28, 2012 8:47 am

    They need feedback like this to let them know that the’re fucking up on a high level. This company probabley use to making t-shirts for album promotions, strip clubs, and hood spots.They make good money off of that but that small stuff come around all the time they not use to the big time.They think they make hella t-shirts for small bussiness that the quailty would fit everyone but it don’t.So your quote lets them know whats up so either they take this comment and try to aprrove their bussiness or just bitch and crumble.

  • MaxOctober 28, 2012 10:22 am

    Dang Ben, you raised the price $400 on your baby Jesus piece already? C’mon man!

  • MaxOctober 28, 2012 10:27 am

    Dang Ben, u raised the price $400 on your baby piece already? C’mon man!

  • Ben BallerOctober 28, 2012 4:12 pm

    max, gold went up a lot…. those were the same prices from a year ago
    but I’m sure we can make a deal

  • MaxpOctober 28, 2012 5:27 pm

    Lol, gold hasn’t move much this year, but cool bro!

  • RecommendationOctober 28, 2012 9:13 pm

    Hey Ben,

    Looking to get some shirts made for a client I distribute for here in North America. Do you have any recommendations?

    Thanks!

  • Been BallinOctober 29, 2012 6:45 am

    I’m assuming you looked at a sample, agreed upon the print, then made the order. If the print quality is not the same how can they not own up to that. Fuckin squids

  • pakOctober 29, 2012 8:52 am

    Ben….the most classic line you always give the haters….” attention dummies. donโ€™t you know I have ip addresses and it shows me where youโ€™re posting from?” haha that shit always cracks me up. dont worry Glad Fags will surely suffer for not being #100

  • GrimyGreenOctober 29, 2012 1:10 pm

    Haha this shit gives me the giggles. If someone tells you you’re making a poor product don’t complain, a kick in the teeth isn’t always a bad thing. More often than not its a chance to learn, instead of getting all bent out shape step up you’re game and prove to them that you can do it better than you had previously shown. Ben Baller ain’t no bully, he’s prevailed through his own struggles like everyone else strives to do.

  • Ben BallerOctober 29, 2012 1:46 pm

    maxp, those prices were around mid dec when I had the last sale.
    gold was $1550, son shit has gone up $200-$300 since. that’s not much?

  • RelOctober 29, 2012 2:13 pm

    damn B layed the whole “who shot ya” track on these dudes…..

  • pakOctober 29, 2012 5:10 pm

    Ben can you tell your readers why you dont fuck with Tyler Perry?? Just always wondered why

  • Ben BallerOctober 29, 2012 5:38 pm

    pak, pretty much the same reason why Spike Lee doesn’t. that don’t mean that he’s a bad guy. I don’t know him personally. same ole reasons why some might hate on me, they don’t know me, know me, I just can’t stand his movies. I thought this last one he acted in was going to be promising, but it seems like it’s got a crazy low rating on rotten tomatoes.

  • WINSTONOctober 29, 2012 6:26 pm

    are you till coming out to the chi on the 10th?

  • RikoOctober 29, 2012 9:58 pm

    You obviously should blame yourself. since you have so much experience with the garment industry, you should have done your research and done business with a better supplier. your Best Homie at LrG should have directed you to a reputable supplier…you went the cheap route bruh,,,stop being so frugal and put some DOLLLA$ into your product with a supplier with a Fantastic customer reviews! U STUPIDFUK! STOP BITCHING!
    I ENJOY YOUR BLOG< NOT UR COMPLAINING!

  • CoryOctober 29, 2012 10:11 pm

    Ben can we address me getting stiffed on my Heat Championship bet im hungry.. And Riko it clearly states his best friend passed , I went to the companies website some of the companies they do business with they appear to be a decent company it was very clear it was bad business.

  • deeOctober 30, 2012 8:06 am

  • eMst@k$October 30, 2012 12:45 pm

    Alot of you guys are fucking retarded with your comments! Real Talk ! SMH…

  • sammieOctober 30, 2012 1:42 pm

    I have pictures of work they did for a previous company i worked with. suuuuuuuuuuper shitty! can you recommend another company ben?

  • CrazyMTFOctober 30, 2012 2:42 pm

    You may not undestand Tyler movies cause you’re from California and Spike Lee from New York his movie is based on country and sourthen life. Thats why I can get the movies cause I live on a real country style living in St.Louis. I know people and realitives who are just like that you’re fam may not be like that but main is.

  • CoryOctober 30, 2012 2:43 pm

    Maybe he doesnt get Tyler Perry Movies cause they all are the same movie.

  • emhanOctober 30, 2012 3:25 pm

  • HowardOctober 30, 2012 11:01 pm

  • adamOctober 31, 2012 12:27 pm

    emhan. the woman who ‘apparently’ cheated on ben is old news , completely different chick than his wife. get ur news straight before u assume shit.

  • TomNovember 2, 2012 1:52 am

    This looks like it belongs on a facebook status…

  • EdelNovember 2, 2012 11:07 pm

    Im behind you on that! How can people think that giving poor quality product is going to make a company look. A product can brake or make a company. Especially when dealing with people like you. You are an influential person. If they understand marketing/advertising/branding they would of know not to mess with an influential person. What a bunch of dumb guys.

    Ive been following you for a while, this is the first time, ive commented. Much respect man, you definitely work hard, you are always out hustling. And respect is a big deal to me as well, so I understand where you are coming from on this matter. They totally disrespected you. Keep working hard man, much respect.

    Ps,

    Glad to see you and your family are doing well.

    Ben, I’m an account manager for a screen printing company in Toronto – I hear your pain. Mistakes do happen with all businesses. We make it our end goal to fix ANY mistake that happens even if it is not our fault. Regardless of the mistake, we want a happy client/customer.

    If you ever need screen printed work done in Canada, feel free to contact me. We produce on average 3-5k shirts a day. I’ve done work for Alliance Films, Big Talk Films, VISA, The Walking Dead (AMC), plus merch shirts for national tours of many bands. Currently doing a run of tote bags for AMEX.

    I hope the people at Glad Rags Ink come around and fix their error.

    Cheers,
    J

  • J$November 7, 2012 11:11 am

    If you guys need printing hit me up!! ftspco.blogspot.com my site sucks but the work i do is quality. Been doin this for a min now.

  • EvolNovember 14, 2012 9:31 pm

    Ive been doing business with glad rags for some time now and they never delivered anything less than great quality I’m not sure what happened ben but they do good business and quality work. Since your out in LA you should try DTLAPrint.com out in la but glad rags is my choice. Ill have to see there side of the story.

  • CelineNovember 15, 2012 11:12 am

    Heard about this review. So I decided to check it out. I’ve been ordering from Glad Rags Ink for several years now and I’ve never been disappointed with their price, product or deadlines. In fact, they always work with whatever crazy deadlines I have to ensure I have it right on time…or even earlier. Whenever I have questions or concerns, I email or call and I get a response right away. I’ve probably sent in more than 25 orders without a hitch. The people I’ve dealt with there have been very nice and helpful. I’ve recommended Glad Rags Ink many times and will continue to do so. Your situation was very unfortunate and no matter what company you deal with in any type of service, there will always be that one bad experience. ๐Ÿ™

    everyone has their good days and bad. nobody is perfect, the problem is, when there is a discrepancy the vendor should go over things in a proper way and ESPECIALLY when dealing with someone of high caliber that can help or hurt their business. think about the end result. they fucked up. they think their work was acceptable. it clearly wasn’t and so there was no agree to disagree. there was only one thing to do. it was clear as day. now. I’m sorry this may sound rude, but to those who print 1,000 TO 10,000 orders on a regular from brands and stores like Brooklyn Projects and Hall of Fame and many other major brands, they have all told me so late in the game now that they don’t fuck with these guys. so there it is. a lesson learned. I’m forewarning anyone so they don’t end up like me. maybe this will change their business behavior. regardless, fuck them I’m done with it. but it’s here for people to see and that’s too bad. I wouldn’t ever let this happen to a major client of mine.
