- Wedding: March 2013
My FH and I are Jacks-of-many-trades. One of these trades is publication, we own a local nightlife magazine, and we both do graphical layout. So why would I pay someone to design our invites/other paper goods? It’s just a no brainer. Plus it’s way cheaper to DIY.
So last Monday, July 29, I dropped off my paper and files, etc to Office Depot. I provided them with the specialty paper, and gave them a complete and detailed list of filename/quantity/paper needed/ink color… everything they need. I gave them my FH’s phone number because he is the business credit card account holder (he gets a huge discount) and is in their store a lot for business printing.
They told me they would have them done “probably by Saturday.” (which would have been August 4)
They call us at 10AM on Thursday August 2nd, to inform us that the printing is finished. I am very excited, and will be willing to drive the 25+ miles to pick them up so that I can start working on the embellishments. Since I had some other things to take care of in that city, I drove up. While I was doing my tasks, he calls me (approx 4PM) to tell me they contacted him to say they WERE NOT done but would be soon. So I went about my tasks and arrived at Office Depot at 7:30PM. They said “Yes they are done” So I looked at them and NO they were not done. Only about 3-5 of the invitations in the top of the box were printed, the rest were blank.
SO here it is August 8th. 10 days later. They still haven’t called to update us, we’re still totally in the dark.
. The sign says, place your order befor e 2pm, and your order will be done by 9PM the next day. I think 10 days is plenty enough time to print. My FH is going to go up there and raise a stink. I told him they better really really really discount those puppies or make them free, I am completely LIVID! I had planned for me and my mom, Maid/Matron of Honor and BMs to have an assembly party with choco-strawberries and wine. Now I have to either reschedule or do them myself.
Am I totally overreacting, or should I be miffed off?
