Default Is this just MY luck (RABOM)

I am getting kinda ticked @ RABOM. In various different rolls (mostly 3/8" size) I'll be working on something and then BAM I find that it's not a continuous cut. They've taped 2 ends of ribbon together in the middle of the freaking roll. That ticks me off beyond belief.... especially when I'm rolling up korker dowels !!!!!

Also, I ordered some of the Christmas printed argyle ribbon. I ordered 10 yards. I got them, and one spool has a brighter more crisp print on it and the other's colors look dull. I have spent SOOOO much freakin money there in the last 2 years it's not even funny. I emailed (and they FINALLY answered) and they want me to ship it back. Yeah I guess this is a standard business practice but they should just send me a new roll.... what a pain in the butt.

Anyways. Just needed to VENT!!!

I've noticed a sharp decline in quality since they moved, but I still luv them. We need to ban together and send them an unhappy note!

Yikes! This isn't making me feel good! I just spent over $100 with them in the last week! Not to take away from you post, but I'm a bit miffed with them too. I won a free micro collection on their scratch off and have called an e-mailed them with no response!

This isn't why I haven't shopped with them for a while. But I have loved TRR so I go there for ribbon. Back during Christmas when RABOM was SUPER slow I went to TRR and loved their service. If there is something wrong with my ribbon they will take care of it. I bet RABOM would too though. I would ask for different ribbon.

Ohh...I was just getting ready to order ribbon from them. They are over $1.00 per roll less expensive than TRR on printed ribbon. They seem to have similar ribbon, Do they buy it from some place or print it themselves? Does anyone know?

I don't wanna be a RABOM hater, they have been pretty good in the past... just these few things are ticking me off. I love the quality of the ribbon, I would just appreciate a continuous cut... that is a huge pain the the butt when you're in the middle of a bow fold and you have to waist like 5+ inches of ribbon because it doesn't finish the bow you are working on right then!!

I like TRR a lot, they have quick shipping BUT they are often out of key colors in certain sizes. I make a list of stuff I need as I run out. If I go to place an order and I can't get say 2 out of the 6 items I need... I will not buy from them. That's why I keep going back to RABOM because they almost always have ribbon in stock in every size (solids).

SIGH
