Additional Notes

Complaint: I came to the business in order to print a work portfolio at a high quality. I have a major issue with the customer service lack of assistance in my case. Which ended up costing me 23.82$ with no product delivered that is worth the amount. I am not a professional printer and was very heavily relying on the support of the customer service. I showed the nice lady that was helping me the file I had and carefully paid attention to the changes she told me had to be made in order for the print to be successful. When I got back to my home I made the changes and e-mailed her the file. She looked at it, sent it to their print shop so they would look at it, and then sent me a digital copy to show me what it would look like printed. She gave the green light saying that it looked good. I gave the green light because the digital file looked great as well. But when the print came out 5 days later I was disappointed to see that it was of extremely low quality. I am not a professional printer but even I made better prints at our universities' print center when I was still a student, last year. When I asked what could have caused the issue, I was tolled first that it was because I used the wrong font. Then in the same e-mail I was told that it could have also been a low quality of dpi that caused it, and that they recommend that it should be at least 300 dpi. First, I know from our print center and some research online is that most printers print excellent quality at 200 dpi while my file was at about 270 dpi. Second, I was not made aware of their 300 dpi policy before the book was sent to printing. Third, after I made the complaint she told me the file should actually be 600 dpi. Ok, I can deal with the lack of consistency and miss information that im getting. Everybody make mistakes, no big deal. But why do I have to pay for a mistake that I did not make?

Desired Settlement: I would like my money back please.

Consumer Response:

I would like to retrieve my complaint due to the companies action of re-printing the document at
desired quality for no extra charge.
They did a great job and made me a happy custumer. 
Thank you for your support.

Additional Notes

Complaint: We have been trying to resolve a dispute regarding print quality issues since October 2012. Our first order of "perfect bound" booklets were bound incorrectly, truncating the spine artwork, and had several other print quality issues with alignment and color. Our second order (with spinal artwork reviewed and approved by ***) and visually then verbally verified to be correct, also experienced the same print quality problems! In total, our company spent of $4,000 on booklets that we donated to a local non-profit that makes artwork accessible to the community. I am now the proud owner of 15 boxes of useless booklets and the only winner thus far has been *** and ******** ****, who has pocketed $4,000+ for printing garbage that I couldn't even give away for free.

Desired Settlement: Given that the exhibition took place in November, and the replacement order had the same defects, there is no opportunity for replacement on this complaint. Due to my staff not pursuing this complaint aggressively from the outset, ******** ******* has been unable to resolve a billing dispute in our favor. At this time, I have over 1,000 booklets of poor quality remaining, having given away a few hundred of good to moderate quality. I am requesting a $3,000 refund directly from MGX Copy.

Business Response: I have just spoken with Mr. ******** and we have come to a resolution. Mr. ******** was not satisfied with the quality of our books and we do apologize to any customer that is not 100% satisfied with our products and services. We were not able to resolve this issue in our typically quick manner as we were not awawre of the issue until recently. As we saw the BBB compliant today, we immediately spoke with Mr. ******** and resolved the issue today. As per our 100% satisfaction guarantee program, we have offered to either reprint the project at no cost to the client, or to provide a refund. Mr. ******** has chosen to accept a refund of approximately $2700 that corresponds to the actual number of books that were below his expectations. We have informed Mr. ******** that these errors came as a result to a machinery malfunction, and is not typical of the great experience that our customers receive when ordering from MGX Copy. We apologized and look forward to getting another chance to earn back his business. We believe we have resolved this issue amicably, fairly, professionally and now consider this matter settled.
