    We bough 100 24x18 stocking for UV Flatbed last month, also bought 25sheet 8'x4' - on June we start using 24x18 open the box all curve and edge bended cannot print, print head keep catch it.
    I call Grimco and manager said after 30days cannot return. We bought this as stock not using right away how the heck I know to check them 1st. I am trust them good source now is BAD apple.

    I ask them to remove my account and email list from now on. We won't buy a dime with them any more. I am in southern CA too many sources to buy supply from.

    Watch out bad APPLE from Grimco. They are not responsibility bad product.

    that was hard to read.

    Grimco has always treated us fair.

    Cant say I blame them. How are they to know how you stored them, etc. For all they know you might have stored them in a 140 degree storage shed. Then again, it's what, at most a hundred bucks in product to keep a customer happy...... My Grimco would most likely have replaced them.

    Always check whatever comes through the door immediately. Stops a whole lot of wasted time and $$.

    Yeah, after a month how do they know you didn't drop the box or damage them yourself?

    it would have taken less than a minute to open the box when you got them and look, serously
     
  6. I know what your talking about, i have gotten a box of coroplast blanks that are bowed and they don't suck down on the flatbed. Depending on how bad they are, you can put a 12" leader corooplast the width of the qty you are printing. and then put another behind it as it prints, this helps even out the vacuum pressure and sucks it down to the belt. this has worked for me on Agfa flatbed in the past. another guy I worked with would sometime put down craft paper then the blanks on top, that seemed to work too.

    Pat did you read the post?

    Now quit just scanning and read them:)

    All I know is if I sent some one something and a month later they said they were damaged I wouldn't cover it either! Like others have said how would one know if you stored them correctly, got them from some cheap place on the internet and are now saying the ones they sent you are bad!

    I found an old car in an old ladies garage, it only had 5,000 miles on it, do you think GM would still warranty it?

    Your mistake isn't Grimco's! Live and learn.

    Because you're in business for yourself. Checking incoming orders should be a standard practice.

    Maybe I'm a bit sneaky but you could order another box then call them and tell them it is bad and send back the old box.

    i have had similar things happen and you learn the hard way that you have to check your material when it comes in. especially the rigid materials.

    Sounds like 1) you are ESL and 2) you have only been doing this for a month? I have been dealing with Grimco for YEARS! Any problems I have ever had they fixed....Are you sure you communicated your problem to them correctly?

    Grimco has always stood behind the products they sold me. I had one damaged on my first order with them, and they replaced it no problem. I haven't ordered a ton, but like everyone says, I told them right away and it was no problem.

    Grimco stocks Intplast coro. We have always had the same problem with the top half of the skid. The coro is a little softer than some other brands and it seems to bow along the edge.

    This is the reason why we don't use the stuff. We have tried and tried with no luck. Every skids has problems.

    Our stuff either comes from Matraplast or Coroplast Canada. If anyone needs flat sheets, we can sell you the blanks we use. Even with shipping, we might still be able to stay competitive. Call 888-509-7446 for a quote.
