Poor quality merch

I don´t get it, this looks great.

It's because of the font hat the tracklist is hard to read. The materials used for the tracklist (puff print, embroidery) have been hard to read as it's so small and the font. 

I heard one sine from above then the signal split into two the sound created stars like me and you

It’s the track list embroidery, yeah it’s fine for what it is, but this is what the picture showed on the website  SharedImage-102911.png?t=f08de9f61179e8a

which led me to believe that the track list would be that legible. It’s really not a big deal, I like the hat, it just seems like a corner that was cut in the process of producing them instead of a stylistic choice to me.

I adore the puff paint merch, I ordered the pink hoodie which has puff paint all over it. I can’t stop touching it when I wear it, it’s really fun.

If the puff print is in quite a large font size and a simple font (e.g "Helvetica" for example) it's easy to read but when its the tracklist font it's hard to read.

Yeah!

my roommate ordered the charcoal crewneck sweatshirt and hers has the tracklist in puff paint on the sleeve. It’s pretty hard to read, but it’s still cute

I JUST realized something! With you guys talking about how everything is fundamentally hard to read on all the products because of font/text density/texture...I was reminded that another Chromatica aesthetic is a texture that makes something look like a photocopy of a photocopy....high-contrast, illegible, "blobby". 

So basically, these intentionally "sloppy" design choices on the merch probably serve as tactile 3-d continuations of the original 2-d aesthetic. 

And another example of Gaga liking things intentionally messy!
