Business Response Contact Name and Title: ******** ******* Contact Phone: XXX-XXX-XXXX Contact Email: ********@townandcountryprinting.com Ms. ****** did place her order online on 05/15/14 @ 6:18 p.m. Our website says that orders must be placed by 3 p.m (central time) for orders to go into production THAT day. Because the order was placed after 3 p.m., the order was released the next business day (05/16). Per the FAQ's listed on our website, it states that most orders are generally shipped within 3- 7 working days from production day. Ms ****** order was shipped on the 6th business day. It was shipped U.S. Priority Mail which is normally delivered within 2-3 business days.After tracking the package, it shows that package was delivered on 05/27. Probably would have been delivered on 05/26, but this was a holiday.
OFFER: The order was shipped within the time frame we promised, however we still want Ms. ****** to be happy with our services and to be a returned customer. In saying this, we e-mailed Ms. ****** a coupon for 20% off on her next order and in addition to this, we will also send her a FREE gift that has the logo of the company she represents.
Complaint Proofing process does NOT clearly show spacing issues on completed business cards and give an inaccurate view of finished product. Un-usable products. Invoice Date: 12/13/12 Invoice Number: ******** Problem resulted upon receipt of shipment and then subsequent call to Town and Country to voice my complaint and request for new cards.
The soft proof process does NOT show the actual spacing as printing will appear on the finished product. Therefore what I approved did not become the finished product. This resulted in 3 major errors in the printing of my business cards. 1. Old business logo - not the new one 2. All lines bunched into middle of card instead of spaced out as precious order. 3. Line split where proof show a complete line would fit as requested.
Ann ?, said part of the issue was they had changed their process since the last time I ordered cards but that change was not reflected on the proof so I had no idea they had no intention of evenly spacing out lines on my cards. All lines are now bunched in the middle of the card in an unprofessional manner. I was told this is ALL my fault but they offered a re-print at 50% price. I consider that an insult because my business cards are completely un-usable!
Desired Settlement New, correctly printed cards sent at no charge to me with an apology for such poor business practice and customer service.
Business' Initial Response Contact Name and Title: ****************, VP Contact Phone: ************ Contact Email: ********@townandcountryprinting.com This was an online order. Our website provides online proofs for any item that will be personalized.Customer MUST click on the "approve" button once they review the proof in order to submit the order. If they like what they see, then they would click the "approve" button, if they don't like what they see, then they go back and make whatever changes needed and will see another proof. According to record, the business cards ordered was approved by the customer.
The business cards that the customer received were NOT an old logo. We are a licensed printer for the company she represents and the company instructs what logo & what type of layout we must print. We are under agreement with them to ONLY print what they approve. The logo she received & the layout of the business card was approved by her corporate office.
Customer indicates that the business cards she recieve on this order was not the same as her last order (Sept. 2011). This is because she entered in different personalization this time than she did back them. The order she placed in Dec 2012 she had way too much personalization for one line of imprint. When this happens, the online proof will "wrap" the text to the next line (cutting the one line she wanted into 2 lines). The customer would have seen the line was wrapped into two line with the online proof. The customer clicked on "approve", thus, this is how she received her business cards. As mentioned above, no order can be submitted until the customer APPROVES THE PRROF.
OFFER: We truly understand that mistakes happen. Not just from our customer side, but on our side as well. In all cases, our goal is to always keep the customer 100% satisfied. If the customer wants the cards re-printed at no charge, she would receive the exact same business cards that she received. We're not authorized to change the logo or layout (per our contract). The only thing that she could change is the imprint information (personalization). If she changes the imprint information differently from what she originally approved, then we would offer to reprint @ 1/2 price. This is what one of our CSR offered her. This was not our error as we printed what she approved. Offering 1/2 price for a reprint is a great offer. The 2nd offer we can do, is that she sends back her business cards and we will issue her a credit in full for the business cards. A credit will be issued when the order is returned.

Either customer confirmed the complaint has been resolved, or business confirmed the complaint has been resolved and customer did not respond to BBB correspondence informing customer that complaint will be considered resolved unless BBB hears otherwise from customer.
