When they get it right, all is well. But my last order had so many  
problems I'm doubtful I'll use them again - poor bleed, damaged  
books, delayed arrival, misprints...ugh.

At least they got rid of the stickers and improved customer service  
and QC, though. I got sent out new copies by fedex as soon as I  
complained about damage to the old ones. And for the most part  
quality was pretty okay.
