Regardless of the cause, it speaks to at best very poor inventory management on LI's part- if they know that the lead time to get replacement for a given item from the manufacturer is 6 weeks, then they need to manage their inventory so that they order again when they have a six week supply remaining. They also need to do sufficient inventory tracking such that when an order comes in for something that is in fact out of stock, they notify the customer within a reasonable period of time and offer the customer options on how to handle the shortfall. Because they have done none of the above, they've lost a good repeat customer.
    LI backorders silly stuff that they should have in stock..period. Film envelopes, crystal bags for prints which they backordered every time I tried to buy them. I never got a complete order from them. There are lots of other places, the prices are good and the websites easier to search...

    I have only used Light Impressions once, I was not impressed with their delivery lead times, the products were good though.

    I'm definitely not faulting them on the quality of their products - it's just everything else about ordering from them is a pain in the ass.

    We are sponsors of APUG. We stock highest quality mat board (ArtCare) no minimums, cut custom overmats (no minimums), have extremely low prices. We also stock negative and print storage boxes and negative folders from archival paper (much better than negative envelopes). Take a look: www.lodimaarchivalmaterials.com

    Well, the Renaissance was a long time ago; maybe it's getting scarce.:rolleyes:
