Delays and Updates

Well, this is our first blog post and it will be a doozy!

As many of you who have ordered from us in the last couple of weeks can attest, we have been experiencing significant delays as a result of Covid-19.  

At this time we utilize printing off-site ("site" being our home).  Unfortunately, our printing companies have had to dramatically alter the way they function due to Covid19 and this has had a trickle down effect to us.  

Some of our items, like prints, aren't too terribly effected by this. The delay may be a week in addition to the originally projected time but nothing too terrible.  However, our t-shirts? Well, they have six WEEK delays. 

Six weeks is a bit bonkers.  Even for a really, really awesome shirt.

At this time, we are suspending orders so that we can get a better handle and evaluate if there are other options with the same quality yet a better response time.  We are not wanting to sacrifice quality or service in the name of a sale.  As such, we will be removing anything from the site that cannot meet both those standards within a reasonable time frame.  

So that is the bad news.  

The good news is that there ARE items, new items, which we can produce and get to you within a reasonable time frame!

I will be working on getting these up and running as soon as I can, but I do have a little confession for you -- us Catholics do that a lot, you know -- and that confession is this:

Plena Gratia is really just Matt and Chrissy trying to design, make, and produce some awesome stuff inspired by our faith in between a full time job, homeschooling, raising four kids, a couple of medically complex kids, and everything that regular life tosses our way. Unfortunately, sometimes I (Chrissy, *waves*) am not as deft at juggling all of it as I want to be.

So, I ask for your prayers and patience as we try to navigate this time, which is unique in the challenges it presents.  

If you have questions or concerns, please email me at I will get back to you as soon as I can.  If you have placed an order as of today, I will notify you of the status of that order within the next 24 hours.  

I will be using this space to update you, so check back in and hopefully I will have awesome news to share!
