Adjacent wall isn't too bad either!

60+20%, not 80%

I don't disagree though, I've done some smaller things with Michaels and they've done a fine job. Just depends on who works at your local store.

Unwrapped these today.

I have to find about 7' or 8' of wall space for these. I won't break them up.

The lady at my Michael's is fantastic. She used to work at a gallery so she knows her stuff. Aaand she's super salty cuz now she works at Michael's. Knowledge plus entertainment.

Considering 60+20% is their pretty standard deal, and 80% might encourage someone to stop by... I disagree. But thanks.

Just goin off basic math. But as Diabolos already stated, it's more like 30%, if that. Those "deals" are mind tricks, everyone knows that. That bein said, i've used them 3 times so far, no problems.

But yes, 60% + 20% = "%80". Better?
