Over the years we have received quite a few stories from customers telling how our packaging saved their purchases from certain ruin at the hands of the delivery services. But we just received a new one that "really takes the cake"! WARNING! The following images may be disturbing to some viewers!

"I have to brag on Bruce's packaging one more time. It was a bright sunny day around 5 PM and I guess the mailman didn't see the need to place the packages under the front porch but instead just stacked them up between my two windows uncovered. Well... We've been having these 'cats and dogs' like thunderstorms pop up. The flat package fell apart when I picked it up. Both backer boards were wet. Luckily the items inside survived just fine... Great job! The outside plastic was moist but nothing penetrated. The posters in the tube were also as dry as can be... "

Reply from Bruce: "Thanks much. And to those guys who complain that "it takes an hour to get our packages open", THE ABOVE is the reason we pack that way!" And we don't discriminate against those who don't spend so much. We pack EVERY order equally well, whether it contains $1,000 of items or $10 of items!"

We also have a page on our site that further illustrates why we pack the way we do. You can view it HERE.
