I wanted to address the difference in the Born Pretty Store plates when I noticed. While looking through all the available plates on the website lo and behold I recognized the first set of Born Pretty plates from 1-10 and the bundle currently listed from 1-10 on the website were all different! Sigh. I can't say I'm happy about that when I noticed the first set has images that are much smaller compared to the new plates. So this is basically what happened. If you were like me and got the first set of plates that released from the Born Pretty Store brand they were the smaller images and the plates are labelled as BornPretty. At the time of the initial sale and release these plates were $18.39USD not the 0.99 cents per plate that was offered yesterday but roughly $2.39USD per plate.
Above are the old/first release of the Born Pretty Store plates from one month ago. If you want to see close up individual images of all the plates see my original post here. Now take a look at the BP plates which launched yesterday and are essentially the larger version of the BornPretty plates though many have been completely redesigned. Especially BornPretty 06. I'll show you that one individually below.
Look at the total difference between BP06 and BornPretty 06. I'm a bit surprised that Born Pretty Store didn't bring this obvious change to our attention since these are clearly different plates and what's more the image sizing is completely different as well.
Side by side comparisons (sorry I could not make them larger or they would go to a different line). But the difference is quite obvious.
Despite the above too looking the same they aren't. The BP01 plate clearly has different sizing and spacing compared to the BornPretty 01 original. Trust me my eye for these kinds of subtle differences is very sharp. Plus see how the party hat in the upper left is now changed to a smaller christmas tree? They removed the hat because it was taking up too much real estate and enlarged and moved the christmas tree that had been there in the original.
See how the images have been enlarged and zoomed in on the new BP versions? Also the snowflakes and one of the other spirals at the bottom has been removed. And here's another prime example.
Zoom, rotation, removal, and addition. Sigh. So I would do this with all the plates because they have all been changed but A, all of the individual images of the BP plates aren't up on the website and B, I think you get what I am pointing out.
For me the disheartening part about all of this is that it would have been very easy for Born Pretty Store to post an addendum to the links on their page or in the newsletter saying the original 10 plates had been redesigned so that we knew to get them if we wanted during the 0.99 cent sale. I tried searching the site and blog and couldn't find that information anywhere. I have no problem with a brand revamping old plates Bundle Monster did it with their 2010 set, although these hardly qualify as old seeing as they just released a month ago, but I do have a problem with operating with partial information. I have written to Born Pretty to ask what they plan to do about this for those of us that ordered the originals, which I'm still waiting to arrive, and wanted the larger plates.
I won't lie, but right now I'm pretty disappointed. Hopefully a few of my readers caught this before I did and were able to get the new revamped plates during the sale if you wanted them. Personally I'm hoping Born Pretty Store will offer the redesigned plates again for 0.99 per plate or a discounted price for those of us who purchased the originals and wanted the redesigned plates since we have already demonstrated out loyalty by buying them at a higher price originally even when they were on sale. Ok I'll leave it here for now. Let me know what you think in the comments below and I'll see you next post....
