Please note that the boxes for the BLOODYMINDED “PHASES : THREE” triple-7-inch set will no longer be embossed. We apologize for the inconvenience caused by the supplier, Brimar Packaging, who printed and custom made the boxes for Rococo Records. The replacement lids that were made and that were delivered to Rococo yesterday are unacceptable. I just saw the new version and there is no discernable "dimension" or depth to the embossing, and further, the workmanship looks "cheap," which renders them unsatisfactory to all of us. After comparing both tops, we have decided to go with the original flat box lids. It is disappointing that this compromise had to be made, but the manufacturer could not guarantee that a third attempt would yield better results. As they stand, the boxes look amazing and they are infinitely better than the lame attempt at embossing that the supplier tried to pass off.
