2019 WARNING UPDATE:
I’m currently waiting some news or improvement by Live heroes. So many of you let me know that they are taking forever to ship orders, that their lack of communication is infuriating and that they are not behaving clear as day. After that, I want to keep on hold this review that was made when things were going smooth for Live Heroes (previously More Sexy). This is dissapointing and I don’t know what is happening to them, because they were doing just fine and my customers were happy with them. So be aware that they are not working as they did.
I’m back, writing a new review for you, customers and creatives worldwide!
As I already run so many shops, I’m trying to keep only the ones that works well for me and my customers. It requires a lot of effort, attention and energy to keep the shops running, so I’m kind of selective, and I tend to keep the ones that offers something that I’m interested to sell. I was looking for shops that sells printed all-over apparel at affordable price + nice quality.
I received an invitation to join Live Heroes (formerly More Sexy) months ago. Perfect timing, its the kind of product I was looking for! But before to announce this new addition to my shop list, I needed to make sure It might meet the requirements I need. And It does, in at least, 90%. Those were:
– Quality apparel.
– Good all-over printing quality.
– The products are shipped correctly.
– The shop pays correctly the artists.
– Good customer – artists service.
– They update the shop with new products.
– The product is comfortable.
I ordered two products to check their quality. As I said to a follower throught my FB page, I have no other all-over-print reference to compare, but I’m impressed with the products I’ve got. The items I’ve purchased are a crew neck sweaterof my Medusa Imperator design and an unisex T-shirt of my Gamer Nouveau design. So well, let’s review it!
The shop is Live Heroes, based in Poland. The owner brand is Mr Gugu & Miss Go. The website has cool design and it’s easy to use, for both customers and designers. Designers only need their designs and a while to upload all the products. Needs to improve some web features to speed up the product addition thing, but sure they’re working on it (I’ve already suggested it to them). If you subscribe, they’ll send you newsletters with suggested brands and discounts.
The staff is nice, easy to work with. The shipping doesn’t takes forever (at least not to Spain, it took two weeks to arrive) and, to date, has reasonable shipping fees for heavy products such as sweaters.
The fabric is soft and light 100% polyester, good to keep the sublimation print on point. I washed mine several times and the colors didn’t fade out and keep its intensity. It’s a nice gear to wear as an unisex T-shirt. The neck is a bit narrow for my taste (I’m neck fat LOL), and the sleeves are much like an unisex cut T-shirt should be, so expect nothing sleeve short. I missed the option of woman cut T-shirts (wider neck, fitted and shorter sleeves) and I made them know that would be so cool if they had that kind of T-shirt in Live Heroes. If youre men or women and are interested in T-Shirts, read carefully the size chart to find the proper fit for you.
The print on the T-shirt reachs every border (as it does in stuff sewn after being printed), the stitches are on point and the print looks defined and close to the original art.
The sweaters are also 100% polyester and the print looks super defined. The design appears almost as shown in the web mockup, following the design in the sleeves! Sooooo cool. The fabric is light and very very soft, with a bit silky shiny finish, but so cozy in the inside.
Again, necks are maybe a bit narrow but not uncomfortable. The lenght of sweaters are proper as well are the sleeves. The cut is unisex, so see size chart to find your perfect fit before purchasing one for you. I think it’s a nice companion for winter.
Well now let’s make the points here:
OVERALL RATING: 4/5, I’ll keep this shop, and it’s worth a purchase. They must improve some points and keep growing, but the printing quality and fabric is not the issue.
PROS: Very comfortable clothing, not expensive as crazy (for all-over printing I mean), exclusive printing sizes, a wide range of products. Recommended to designers or customers. You can put a photo of your cat, too, and have a sweater of it! Nice shipping fee.
If you’re a customer, you can find there outstanding apparel in a very original print size. If you’re a designer, you can play wonders with your designs. If you’re both, GO and HAVE FUN!
CONS: The upload of designs is easy, but too much simple yet. It needs to be more “complex” to simplify the design uploads. It makes sense?
I also miss the women cut in T-shirts. And XL size in dresses. They say those stretch to 10cm more, but I want a size where none of us, curvy girls, hesitate to fit in.
I’m about to order a dress and maybe sweatpants or tank tops, so I will update this review with more photos and opinions about Live Heroes stuff. You’re welcome to my LH shop. Thank you for reading!
