That is pretty much how the foil looked except with the foil it was more evident in the image. He made good and got me a replacement.
We have had a few damaged tubes from this batch and have handled replacements. Refund issued for above.

No, it's an industrial tube company that I usually buy from that's local. Looks like a box of thin chitty u-line like tubes was in the mix. We open the tops of the tube boxes and pop the caps, fill the tubes, replace caps, and then tape and label them. It just wasn't noticed that there were chitty tubes in with these. I found one after the fact because I set it aside to have the label reprinted and saw that it was thin but they had already gone to the post office. The tubes I usually buy have a wall thickness about the same as Yazoo tubes. I'm sending out replacements for a few who took damage.

All single regular tubes shipped in the US. A handful heading to Canada to be tubed today. Single variants being tubed today and then sets. Box with European shipments that are being distributed from the UK is heading to the UK in a few days. We're well over the half way point.

Hey JP,

Yep, I've got you on the list. I'll ping you directly, too.

David, are these just showing up on doorsteps or are email confirmations going out? (I have the regular subscription.)

Evidently USPS is still F'd up. The tube arrived at the local post office yesterday. Problem is that the local post office is 30 miles away from my post office.

Three days later the tube arrived. The prints look great and were well worth the wait.
