    I just ordered some wedding registry cards, host envelopes and my biz cards there.( I hope they don't take forever to process and ship like I have heard ont these threads!) I was disappointed on the lack of inventory variety they carry. Anyone else feel the same way? I loved all that T & C offered! Do you think eventually Merrill will carry as much different PC stuff as the former company? That's just too bad, IMO!

    I hope so. I will be moving soon and would really like to have a window decal on my car like the one T & C offered. I wanted to get the car magnets. I saw that we were encouraged to order what we wanted by Dec. 31, but we won't be moving until August and I won't have my new phone number until then.

    I like(d) those car decals.

    it took about two wks to get a personlized stamp from them, and about a week to get my bank bag. the only thing i didn't like was that they charged my credit card twice. The charged the s&h and the bank bag on the first order and just charged me for the stamp on the second one...i thought that is was kinda weird...i never did receive a receipt either

    I have also had shipping issues with Merrill. I ordered on Jan. 16th a set of lap boards, a non-personalized item and just received them on Monday of this week Feb.13th. I thought that was wayyy too long for an item that isn't personalized. I was a little disappointed in that and a little leery about ordering from them again. I guess I just can't get in a dire situation.

    I ordered business cards and a few other things. I thought they arrived in a timely manner. I, too, had my card charged twice (the business cards shipped separately). I called them since the charge that appeared on my card was not the total I was given. No email was sent notifying me that there would be two charges. Both charges did end up totaling what they said it would be. I think that the Merrill's stuff looks more professional than T&C. I am going to be in the market for another car soon and hate that I can't order another set of the personalized window decals. Hope they start offering them before my van dies!!

  6. I ordered Business cards from them and I think they look great. I also thought they shipped fairly timely (I think I received them about 13 days later). The only thing I didn't like was that they didn't charge my credit card until about 3 weeks after I ordered. I actually had the cards before they charged me which is wierd.

    I definitely think Merrill is more cutting edge and looks sharp but just disappointed in the lack of stuff that they carry compared to T&C! I hope they add more to their inventory eventually!

  8. order

    I loved my business cards and they were super fast I have ordered 3 times and nothing took over a week from time i placed order till rcvd. The reciept they email to u. I think this looks much more professional then anything I have ever seen PC use. Its a step in the right direction. I did place a order today for lap boards and it said they are back ordered. maby just look around the web site it tells u everything.
