    I'm sorry for your trouble. I think you should call your credit card company, which surely would issue you a refund.

    Only if you complain within 60 days of getting it on the bill. Light Impressions count on people being patient long enough to get screwed!

    Yikes, what credit card company has that rule? If you are not able to seek a remedy with your card company I'd drop them like a hot potato. Best of luck - don't give up.

    For many years I bought various supplies from Light Impressions with no problems. Having read the many difficulties posted on APUG threads I looked for another merchant. I recently made a few purchases from Print File ( http://www.printfile.com ) and was quite pleased with their service and prompt deliveries.

    I like printfile also even though I am in CA and I think they are in FL.
