These decks look great and if i was in your position i would also be wondering why people are not buying these decks as they are cheap and look great. 

I would try and hand some out to people, this would encourage people to get them because they dont wont to feel left out and missing out on something great.

People might be slightly hesitant to get one as your decks have not been around for long at all.

Im not saying you should do this but im just suggesting what i would do in your situation, hope i have helped

Yeah, maybe give a few decks out for review purposes. 
Good review will result in sales man.

A lot of people that start making decks to sell thinks that all it takes is to make them and put them up on a website.

The thing is, decks don't sell that fast. It might take months for a stock to sell out.

What he said..
 
And the ridiculous cheap pricing and the fact that you offer free blem decks and dont snap them and throw them in the bin where they belong isnt exactly something someone building a sought after quality brand (or reputation in the commnity for that matter) would do..
 
The fact that you are already asking questions about not getting any sales in the very place you would want to advertise your products and maybe get your first customers isnt exactly helping you out in that context either.....sorry.. awkward

Kidding right..? Flatface sold blemish decks to people for a higher price then he is selling his perfect decks, and him giving them away is a problem..Logic. Many companies sell products that aren't up to their standards for a lower price, Electronic companies, clothing companies, and like what i said up there, fingerboard companies, and him GIVING them away for free is bad..?

What Bakko said is that if you want your company to get known for great quality, then it's not smart to throw a bunch of below standard decks out.

Companies like Bose Jl audio sell blemish products for a smaller price. I understand what bakko is saying, I just completely disagree. Next time you intervene, say something that is an actual reply to my post. #Winning.

You are still missing the point huggie. This is "Grain", a totally unknown fingerboard company. It's not flatface, bose or any other known company.

It is F.R.E.E , And is ADMITTEDLY A BLEMISHED PRODUCT. It DOESN'T prove in any way that his actual product is low quality. Apply the concept to hungry children, just because say this food company has slightly out of date food, should they not GIVE that product away because it is slightly inferior?shocked

Maybe you'd understand if you didn't eat your decks, lacquer is not healthy.

It just looks and sounds better if you keep your blems/mess ups to your self, make people feel like only perfect decks see the light of day, at least for a new "company"

How about not trying to change the way I said something. Waste is waste. If you can use something, or use something that would otherwise be thrown away..do it.Maybe you'd understand if you were using you brain, being ignorant on the internet is not healthy.

Dude.. who put sand in your vagina?

Calm down, and look at the posts. Notice how the people that actually have experience in the deck making business pretty much agree that giving out blems from the start is a bad idea?

It's not about waste, its about making sure that no one can say they saw a bad looking Grain deck.

If no company would of did anything differently, america wouldn't have the products that is has today. Just because Every other deck maker is proving themself to be a wasteful prick, doesn't mean it isn't wrong. And again, the fucking blems are free, if someone complains about a free deck,then they are the people that are wrong, not the person kind enough to give out a FREE deck.

Its not about waste.... makes your company look bad..
 I have watched how high end things whatnot are made and if something is off during an part of the process they do not finish it, also I don't see them giving them out for free anywhere

Idk if this example makes sense to you but yea

if any of your blems are shaped badly, you should turn them into cruisers ^-^
