    Default what is your most "fowled-up" printing experience?

    i've sent in a CD-R recently to print, total should be as follows:
    202 x 4R => 202 x $0.35 => $70.70
    011 x 5R => 011 x $1.50 => $16.50
    004 x 6R => 004 x $3.00 => $12.00
    Total => $99.20

    Then when i received the prints last night, after sorting after reaching home i found out i received:
    195 x 4R => 195 x $0.35 => $68.25
    009 x 5R => 009 x $1.50 => $13.50
    010 x 6R => 010 x $3.00 => $30.00
    Total => $111.75

    BUT! written on the envelope itself was:
    214 x 4R => 214 x $0.35 => $74.55 (Wrong, should be $68.25)
    009 x 5R => 009 x $1.50 => $07.50 (Wrong, should be $13.50)
    010 x 6R => 010 x $3.00 => $30.00 (Correct)
    Total => $112.05 (Wrong, should be $118.40)

    With all the mess in calculations, and other than missing out 1 x 4R print that I wanted, and receiving 6 x 6R prints that i wanted originally as 6 x 4R prints... the whole thing was pretty alright. Who else had anything like this as well? I don't blame the poor chap for the massive load i send in for printing at one go... but how come blur blur print 6 x 6R photos from 6 x 4R...

    P.S. I'll return 5 of the 6R shots and ask for a trade-down to 4R because my friend would like to give away low-cost 4R shots @ 35 cents each, not 6R prints at $3 each!

    If I were you, I'd go to some other lab liao...

    Accuracy of my prints, in quantity and type, and in quality, is very important to me. I cannot abide such "foul-ups". It would affect my standing with my clients.

    thanks for your input, Azure.

    first thing i'll do is to give the store a visit and throw all the numbers at them. my friend got a shock when i told her that her 6x4R (total $2.10) suddenly became 6x6R (total $18)!!!

    one of the other 4R shots was missed out in printing too. so i gotta make some noise....

    yeah agreed. I really dislike someone to mess up my order. be it prints or a simple Mcdonald's order.

    Not to mention that for $1.50 per 5R, it's way too expensive.

    And I thought me paying $0.80 for 5R was bad enough.

    Yes, what else did you think I was refering to?

    I got the Fotohub package back in MAr 2003's it show.

    It was like 50 5R for $40.

    I shared with my friend 50/50 and each got 25 5R prints at $20.

    You pay them, then you create an online account on the spot. a few days later they email you the password and you can start submitting online.
    (Payment mode just choose, "Pay Upon Self-Collection / Prints Package")

    Then they call you on your mobile to let you know you can collect. (you can check your order status online). Then you visit them and tell them your order number to collect.

    Their offer is back, and they are promoting it at Comdex 2003.
    30 prints for $30 ($1/ea)
    65 prints for $55 ($0.85/ea)
    200 prints for $150 ($0.75/ea)

    Their newest shop is at Suntec.

    http://www.fotohub.com/

    I suggest you get a few of your friends to share money and get the 200 prints package.

    Register a generic account and let everyone know the password when you get it. They are collect their prints themselves without you going down, just know the order number that's all.


    Last note of caution, there is an EXPIRY date for using the prints ordered!!! It's abt 3 months. (best is to ask them when you sign up)

    so if you order 200 and did not use them up b4 the expiry date.....
    (unless you are a heavy user, else share with ur friends)
