And it is kinda offensive to say...well they can just use prefold/flats......prefold/flats are not for everyone so if I was reading this thread and used alvas because of $$$$ issues I would be offended.

I agree with you. I have all three-- Alva, Diapersafari, and Imagine and except for the print I would have a hard time telling the difference. I strongly dislike flats and prefolds are barely tollerable after the newborn stage. Personally I would choose a "cheapie" over sposies since DH will not use prefold or even fitteds.

I don't condone what that they "stole" those few prints but it seams they have plenty of other prints to choose from. TBH most of the WAHM ones to get a cute print you have to pay big bucks and I am not willing/can't do that.
wife and mom-- no other special labels. Just trying to do the best I can.
