    Printing Update: Blerg....

    So I have been informed that on Friday, the printers of the 1978 Reimagined Catalog closed it's doors forever. This normally would doom the project (and me considering I prepaid) but I have heard rumour that a former employee possibly grabbed the printed sheets and sent them for binding.

    I cannot seem to find this mythical man, who I will call "Gandalf" for the time being. Rumours of the catalog being in Burlington abound but I'm suspicious.

    While I've been assured this will work out, I'm betting 50/50 that I'm out a couple of G here. So needless to say I'm a well slept man who is perfectly balanced at this point [/opposite day].

    Keep your fingers crossed folks.

    that is truly dire news. I hope you can find the mythical Gandalf.
    Are these the same printers who usually did your cards for you?

    They have done cards in the past but they're not exclusive no. Cards can continue without a hiccup.

    Holy crap, Brian. What a fiasco! We'll have to find a way to make it right, you can't be stuck with that bill.

    agreed

    plus I know I was really excited to get ahold of this. I am sure others still want to see it fly. Perhaps the price per copy is just going to have to increase a bit.

    I appreciate it the sentiment guys, hopefully it'll work out for the best. I'm just bracing for the crash.

    Without question!!

    Brian, we apprciate your expectation to take the hit, but we were all ready to reap the rewards as a community. I would ask that you allow us to also help deal with these setbacks as a community. You and others have done so much to further our Mego fun, I only ask that you let us contribute in this small way to help our little world.

    That's crap. I don't think you should have had to pay in advance anyway. Grrr. Let's get 'em.
