    Hold on there Sparky........ I already wrote I liked his ending. No where did I do what you are saying. You come here once a month, make this sh!t up and look for a fight. Go take some more meds and you'll feel better later on.

    There are quite a few things this OP could've done, but he followed some bad advice, although the guy did say, they can stick. So, lucky for him, his customer bailed his a$$ out of a pickle. He learned an expensive lesson on his customer. Happy ending all the way around, til you came around. Now, you hafta go and derail this thread and send it down the toilet. You just never change.

    You most definitely should make some kind of crate with dividers in it if this is going to be a regular type of work for this client. I don't think Gino was rubbing it in on you, he was just stating a relevant, real life, recent example of how he handled a similar situation and how simple of a solution is readily available. We have a whole box of those hand clamps as well as straps, poly wrap, blankets, rolls and rolls of liner, kraft paper, etc.

    I once managed the graphics dept. of a big tradeshow/exhibit house. We had built a huge 60'x60' tradeshow booth and product wall display system for Salomon sports. It took two 48' semi trailers to pack the crates for this thing, but we had built the crates to isolate each of over 100 4'x8' wall panels WITH product shelves so nothing would ever come within an inch of each other. The panels were hinged in a way that two people could slide them out of a crate one at a time and assemble the whole thing without incident.

    The thing went from city to city, was used multiple times per year for several years and not a single component ever came back for repair.

    The best planning is PRE planning for any circumstance that could go wrong. Those aren't cheap signs and neither is your reputation. It has years worth of investment built into and riding on it.

    This was not the worst blooper I've done, and probably won't be the last. I didn't come here looking for validation, nor candy coated criticism. When I screw up, let me have it. So, I am putting this thread to rest, feeling good for most all the feedback.



    As for your post Emd2dick. Your "waste of time" post, and only goal to belittle, tells me that you didn't join this thread very high on the intellectual ladder anyways.
    You'll be just fine.

    Everyone else, I thank you again.

    The manufacturer should be responsible here. You paid for these signs and they failed after a short period of time. If they failed during storage They prob would have failed during instal if the ink wasn’t cured properly. I would make the manufacturer redo.

    Thats not true at all. Even uv cured ink can stick to itself when stacked. Improper storage of goods was 100% the cause of failure and nothing else.

    PB thanks for trying to insult me, but you posted on something your little head could have worked out internally....or in theory you should have. You also got upset over a couple thousand dollars....which is pennies dude.

    So I guess I’d rather be low on the “intellectual latter” and own a large growing company, then truly dumb and worrying about a couple thousand bucks. I have a great idea of where you can put the slip sheets next time ; )

    PB, you also agree to match the lowest price if your customer finds one. And actually have had to do so. That’s a little pathetic....

    The happy ending wasn't satisfying enough... they brought out the ropes and chains... the safety word is "coroplast"
