Well, *that’s* annoying.
Printer called, said that the job was done and we could pick it up, a bit earlier than we expected. So we decided to pop over to Sedalia (about 75 miles) to get it. First, there was an error on the bill, which took them a while to sort out. We did a quick check of the print run, saw that the paper was correct, the grain running the right way. Then, when we got home we discovered that they managed to screw up the pagination – even though it was correct on the proofs they sent us. So I now have $904.70 worth of scrap paper sitting in the bindery.
We’ll get it sorted out in the morning when they re-open. But it’s damned annoying.
