Never had a problem with a poster tube before, so they can swing away and the poster tube seems to be fine. 

 

No, it was rolled on the long-side and two boxes were taped together to cover it.  The boxes taped together meeting in the middle is why it lacked structural strength in the middle and was crushed. 

 

This goes to Ruthless' comment as well--to be fair, I have never seen a package so trashed.  Half the end was torn off the box, which is why you see the wrinkles at the top.  If it had been something I paid for, heads at the delivery company would be rolling, though WG should have packaged it better. 

 

Just tell people WG ran it over with a real life tank before giving it to you, that way it only adds to the poster

Who sends a poster in a box instead of a tube??  WG goes to all the trouble to get the poster signed then some potato in the shipping department folds it up and ships it in a box.  Probably the same noob that caps when your team still has 10 tanks looking for the last OPFor.

But...I would like to ask that you do not let your Art Department mail anything out in the future.

 

 

Stop the 'Art Department' hate, if the art department had boxed it up, it would have arrived in perfect condition!  They probably woulda custom made a wooden box with moulded foam padding.  This sounds like the work of a HR department employee.

 

Serioulsy, bro.  They went to a liberal arts school.  That's basically 4 years of advanced arts & crafts.  They know how to make a frigg'n box.

 

/rant from this art department guy.   cool poster btw, suppa jelly

Awesome poster! Sucks that it arrived like that.:angry: I used to sell on ebay & I have shipped items like this in the "media" mail category before because it is cheaper. One time I sent a large print & the post office opened it to verify that it was art or media & when they re-wrapped it they did a very poor job which resulted in damage & me giving a refund to the purchaser. Perhaps this is what happened during transit of yours. And whoever it was is a real moron for sure:facepalm:

Unless it's a high value item that said shipping company has to pay for, they could really care less.

So I randomly won a poster in the Anniversary Writing Event here.  I wanted to say thank you to WG and Schneller for the poster and post a few pics.

 

Here is a pic of the poster:

Anyone know who Richie Rich is?

Max is on there and as I figure out the names I may take pics and post them here. 

 

 

But...I would like to ask that you do not let your Art Department mail anything out in the future.

(^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^this is a JOKE from here).  :trollface:

 

Maybe the art department wasn't upset about my previous thread but the poster arrived quite crushed (flat), wrinkled, torn, and even water damaged.  This seems a shame for all the people who did take the time to sign it, and my thoughts of framing it are now...:unsure:

 

 

I will try and steam out some of the wrinkles, but in the future, I would recommend sending posters in tubes not boxes.  Thank you again--it is still a neat poster and cool to have it signed.

 

We are shipping you a new poster :)

 

Apologies for the condition you received this poster in <3

Poster showed up two days ago, have just spent the last two days trying to flatten it.

 

Came in a similar condition to Gallant's, though I don't think it had any water damage to it. Can't complain too much though because I tried to put it up on the first day, found the sellotape to be too weak so went to remove it and already damaged it myself. No names were injured in the process but now I want to find and use enough duct tape to make it look like it was one of the Black Friday Premiums.


Garage : 

'Imagine if this forum had only players who actually win more than lose trying to tell others how to play. Would be the best forum ever. Instead, we have a bunch of morons who lose more often than not trying to tell their betters how to play their tanks.'

'The term "casual gamer" is actually not accurate enough anymore to describe what the larger market is like. They want the illusion of accomplishment, but not the effort associated with it. The players aren't really doing anything, something else is doing it for them, and the player takes the credit for it.

They were opened in customs. That's why they are ending up in cobbled up crappy boxes taped together. I get international shipments like that pretty often. Usually there's a notification along with it from customs, letting you know.
