    Somewhat annoyed... The bank takes 5 business days to clear a check if it's from someone outside of my state. I thought it would have been three days, that's why I waited till today to deposit most of them. They said it wouldn't be until Friday, February 2nd that they would clear, as Saturday doesn't count as a business day. I can't put in the order till stuff clears. Sorry guys. And I am waiting on one check that could push the date back further.

    Well, for what it's worth, I can guarantee you that my check will clear. Absolutely. No doubt about it. If that helps any, which it probably doesn't. Oh, well.

    Stupid banks, anyway.

    The banks tell us that they need those days to "clear" the check... the reallity is that they USE our money THOSE DAYS... and the money produce for them !!! they get a lot of profits with our money in those few days...

    MONKEY BUSSINESS !!! what a **** !!!

    A non-issue, but just to let you know, it won't be royal blue nylon backing, but black instead, which is more screen accurate. I thought I posted it somewhere, but can't find that post/email. Just FYI. Oh, and the neoprene company has the material for processing at the moment. (So, it's already been dyed).

    yes
    PITA! And he didn't put my Purchase order "special instructions" on the run. ARG! I am so ticked. Well, i guess you all can do blue screen shots, when her arm gets wacked.
    I just talked to him and I had the lycra framed at 64" and I think they cut that off too! I am sorry. Things aren't making me any happier today. At least it's still at 60" width rather than what was on the first run.

    oh BTW, when I post that the run will be shipped to you guys, please PRAY. PLEASE PRAY, that it gets to you ok. Like I said before, I lost one shipment last time. I don't want that ever to happen again. The boxes are oversized, so USPS has a tendancy to act like gorillas with these things. I will put "fragile" on all of them. But, they still act like bulls in a chinashop with packages most of the time. You overseas people are lucky, that the boxes will barely "make the mark" meaning, it "just fits" the shipping requirement dimentions, for it to go on a plane.

    Since your "special instruction" requests weren't honored on an order that the supplier agreed to and that you payed for, shouldn't they have to do it over again rather than you need to grin and bear it?

    I agree that seems messed up. They should have to do it again or give you a discount.

    Absolutely. It's their fault. You stand your ground and get what you ordered. That's the way of business.

    Well, what can I do? the supplied lycra was custom dyed from a different company. I can't spend the extra time and my own $$ to have the custom dye job done yet again. They can't unglue and re-laminate something that's been perma-glued together.
