Gothic/Dark

Last week I was on a mission to buy some labels and tags to get my product branding underway. I send a message with my logo to a vendor and they responded back with they do not do Gothic or dark work.
I understand we all have the right to refuse services, but I think that they should do a little more research before they assume something that has nothing to do with the meaning of someones beliefs. A Sugar Skull is not Gothic or dark it is a part of my Mexican culture. It is a way for us to show respect and love to our family members, and friends who have passed away. It is a religious holiday in some areas of Mexican culture, where we pray for the souls of our loved ones and we remember them with stories and making their favorite foods as well as visiting their graves and going to church.
