Both Sowers and Last Kiss for me. In both case sorted out nicely.

i caved and emailed today. at this size and price point there is just no reason that it should not be right. This may end up being one of those editions that trades with an "*" for the rest of time, like the sowers flaking. I suspect that a lot of these copies that are coming undamaged people are just being more than a little generous in their inspection. I just cant see these realy flattening right. I do hope they ask me to send it back, because i am sending it with a few extra creases ;)

The roll bend is still there but getting better.
If it has been 2 days and the roll bend isn't completely gone the company responsible should probably be burned down, or, at the very least, set upon by an angry mob.

It's a shame as I've had nothing but go dealings when it comes to their original release sales.

it is a little hard to imagine how it did not dawn on the person packing these that they had these huge tubes and were rolling them very small. How did they not think, why didnt we buy smaller tubes and ask someone.

Mine has a slight roll bend down the middle as well.

I'm not really sure why it's so tough to properly pack a print, especially a more expensive one. It's not rocket science, and it doesn't take much effort.

Also pretty perplexing that they seem to be refusing to replace these with new prints, since they are giclees.

Oh well, I think I'm gonna see how it flattens and probably just deal with it, unless they change their tune on replacing these.

Definitely sorry to see all the issues. I guess sometimes being close to the end is a good thing. My Goliath showed up today packaged perfectly. Shipped in a 4" Uline tube, print rolled with glassine in a much larger than the print, brown paper sheet. Print was rolled down to about 3" and came thru with no bends or creases. They must have adjusted the packing methods for those of us at the end of the run (above 250).

Did anyone here make it to the show at Archimedes? I'd love to see some pics!
As they haven't all been shared on here yet (I don't think), I've posted them all below.
