    This is great to know! Very exciting! Is there a way to get samples of the foil printing? Thanks!

    I’ve heard great reviews about Catprint, and was excited to try out the foil printing. Eileen has been extremely nice, but I placed my order on Feb. 11 and have yet to receive it. A week ago Eileen followed-up to let me know the order (4 proofs) still wasn’t ready. She said when it was sent, I would not be charged because of the delay (very nice, thanks!) But she also wrote that “Gold foil not being on the site does at times delay the order process.” I was hoping to use Catprint in my business, however I doubt any of my clients would be willing to wait over a month for printing. I sure do like what you have to offer, and your customer service has been terrific, but does 30+ days to ship an order happen a lot?

    Hello, I received an email on Feb. 11 saying my foil orders were shipped, but as of March 13, I still haven’t received them, and hasn’t responded to my email. Have you stopped offering the gold foil printing? Thanks!
