Every mail-order business encounters the problem of damaged merchandise. The damage may
have happened during transit or even at the printing facility. It might also be the result of a customer
returning a product without adequate protection. However, in the end, it doesn't really matter how it
happened. The important point is that the damage has been done and without this sale, the product will just
sit in our warehouse gathering dust.
