    I didn't join this board till after this was well under way and only got to see stuff being photographed at the Meet. I knew this was a special project and it's heartbreaking to see the pitfalls this catalog has endured.

    What was the preice going to be? I hope, as suggested, we could raise the price a bit to offset this unforseen crap. I'm sure Anthony still has the original files if we find an alternate printer. I'd file a suit/claim against the printer and recoup something if possible.

    I've never heard of prepaying a printer. With all of the possible errors that can be made, nobody should pay until they have a finished proof copy. I know the comic company I worked for made that mistake and it cost us a lot of sales. They really washed out our colors and made our first book look like crap. THey always did good on our Arena Magazine covers, so I don't know what happened.

    This does suck, but hopefully it's not the end of this project.

    That's what I was thinking too. This is horrible news, but I hope you find this mystical Gandalf. If you don't be sure to let usknow, so we can all chip in. I want this catalog to happen and I'm happy to put my money where my mouth is

    Yeah, I'm a 20 year vet in printing, I know. The pricing however for that option was unreal, it was a HUGE savings and my break even achievable. I trusted this company with a 25K job for my own company and they were very reputable, so I took the gamble. I got shivers when I paid, that should have been a sign. All of their offices closed, New York, Boston, Toronto, they're gone-zo on a global scale.


    And this is NOT an April Fools gag, I'll be crying if these things show up.

    I was told beyond a doubt they'd arrive today, now I'm told maybe tomorrow. I've heard this everyday for one week. Crap.

    Absolutely, you were doing this for the community, so it's certainly not fair for you to be left holding the bag if this doesn't get resolved.
