Merchandise related details that you just can't stand

Sorry if this has already been discussed (I'm pretty sure it hasn't): what's that standard thing/detail/feature about metal merch that you secretly loathe?

Here's my personal podium:

-As a long sleeve and hoodie freak, I'm a sucker for logos and sigils, so covering a shirt sleeve in words (either the band name or just the album title) backs me out instantly.

-Same with back prints; does anyone (other than you) actually even read those endless lectures printed on the back of many t-shirts? Once again, I want the back of my t-shirts to either show a logo or a cover art/back cover/whatever. I'd much rather leave the back blank than riddle it with words, it makes the t-shirt look messy and weird. Band photos as a back print are also dreadful for the most part.

-Zip-up hoodies whose zipper splits the logo or artwork in two. Now, this one takes the cake when it comes to screwing up a nice garment. Metalheads suffering from OCD should steer clear from these ones lol (click the link below to see a fine example of such an abomination):


Any other manias regarding merch?
