My one end cap was missing too! I could look in and see the prints just like mentioned above. Expected the worst, but the prints are somehow almost OK. A few corner dings on one of them, but nothing too detrimental. The other one is perfect! :shock: I am trying to get over my perfectionism and just appreciate these beauties. What a great print!

It ain't the driver who needed to put his bowl away!! The tube just arrived--a 6-incher missing one end cap and wide open! :shock: You could look right in and see the posters! :shock: :shock: The sides that were on the bottom (the capped end) were banged up a little--hopefully they will roll right out. 1 piece of kraft paper, nothing else.

I think if they'd have used a smaller tube, they might not have slid around so much. This is one of the worst packing jobs I've seen. Upper Playground packing SUCKS!!
Why don't you tell us what you REALLY think?

I got my cambio and my mac yesterday coming home from austin. I haven't opened them yet but it appears that the cambio was shipped flat in a huge box that is beat up all to hell. When I get around to opening them later today I have a feeling I won't be very happy, but hoping for the best.
out and perfect.

mine came shipped in a massive 6" diameter tube. no end cap on one side. (i bet they ran out during packaging).

print arrived mint. a missing end cap wont harm anything as long as the print is still packaged properly inside (it cant move)

Most important, do you have a credit card charge?
