Done it several times and they have always come through, so I certainly can't complain about them, I'm just tired of having to do this over and over again. The worst case was the Costa box, for 18 months I looked at over 20 sets and not one, I repeat not one, was without significant damage way beyond a little edge ding. I did get a new one folded from Criterion finally (and no, I'm not exaggerating the numbers here).swo17 wrote:Your best bet with digipaks if you get a banged up one is probably just to ask Criterion directly for a replacement. They tend to come with the sleeve collapsed in a thick cardboard envelope, which usually fares well in the mail. They may or may not charge you $5 per item for this service.
Fully agree, has also happened a lot to me, but at least my track record here has been better than with the digipacks, although also had to ask numerous times for replacements.swo17 wrote:You guys aren't paying close attention though if you think that digipaks are the only things susceptible to damage. I'm constantly finding dings, tears, and crinkles in the booklets and cover sleeves for releases in plastic cases, which likely originated at the pressing plant.
