I ordered these for my business in which I customize imaging/branding on the coasters. First of all. When I ran testing on my products, the first cork coasters I purchased were from a grocery store. And upon comparing those "natural cork" coasters to these, the "grain" of the cork was deplorable. These coasters from WIDGETCO are beautiful cork product. I am so pleased with that aspect, although I have not subjected them to my branding process yet, I am confident they will hold up really nicely. However there are two big downsides, one of which that makes me hesitant to order again. (Price was great) However the packaging was horrible. It was a paper thin envelope and some of the sides on some of the coaster packs are a little mangled from shipping. The USPS (worst delivery service there is) had the package shoved into my mailbox and hanging out. And the really poor packaging was just falling apart, there was no padding, they just stuck the coaster packs in a paper envelope. Luckily not many are damaged, not enough for me to want to return this shipment, but it really worries me if I order a shipment three times the size and get more "duds" from shipping. That's called loosing money.. My second issue, which - for me, isn't that big of a deal, but could be for someone who needs EXACT measurements. The description says these have a 4" diameter. But they are actually 1/8" shy of that. Consistently through all the packs (I bought 20) The thickness is correct and the bottoms have been smoothed nicely. Shipping was fast, but like I said, the handling preparations are pretty poor. The shipping is the only thing that makes me really hesitant in wanting to order from WIDGETCO again, which is sad because the product is really great, as well as the price!
[From WIDGETCO: Sorry to hear of the issues you experienced, we will look into it. Thank you for the feedback. Glad to hear the material quality was impressive, we are actually making some improvements to the quality to make them even better....getting the tolerance improved will be of particular focus.
