Blues set in. We're wondering
if we're ever going to see copies of Video Watchdog printed right. They
printed it on 70lb cover instead of 70lb text and said we can get some
kind of credit on the next order. They added a gloss finish for $140,
but it still doesn't look as glossy as we wanted it.
They were supposed to have
finished shipping on Friday. No one we know has received their copies,
and when I called to ask for at least 300 copies of the leftovers, they
said they had to be cut and would be delivered by the end of the day.
When they didn't arrive, I was told they'd come first thing in the
morning. At 3:00 today I called and they said it would come about 4:30.
At 5:45 I called and they said the girl left with a delivery at 4:30.
She never got there, but Blue Chip Shipping came by around 6:15 with 69
copies that looked hastily cut. White was showing on the front cover,
and a picture was cropped too much on the centerfold. One was badly
stapled and wouldn't stay folded.
Tim and I were very
depressed. What could we do with only 69 copies when we needed 300 to
mail out? What could we do with these defective copies? What did the
copies look like that went out to distributors? Did they go out?
This batch might be OK as freebies, but I hope there are better looking
copies for our subscribers.
