Has anybody ever purchased cards from Octavia?  It has now been three months and I have not received my cards.  My e-mails recently go unanswered when I ask where they are.  This company has even sold my e-mail address to everyone in the world.  Not cool.

I have a custom one-sided b&w card that I want to have printed.  Any suggestions?

Here is a BRITISH firm that does very good work... and moderately fast turnaround.  The prices are fair, and he will work with you if you want special quanities or split orders.

Check them out in the review section. It's pretty much a mixed bag - either the reviews are great or terrible, not much middle ground.

Personally, I wouldn't do business with ANYONE who doesn't answer their emails.

I have.  The cards arrived yesterday via registered mail at the Post Office and I will be picking them up later today.  Regarding the no response of your emails, I had the same situation occur when I tried to correspond with them at sales@octavia.com.  They must not check this box too often.  But I did get quick responses when I emailed info@octavia.com and valery@octavia.com so you may want to try these addresses.  I knew in advance that it would take about 3 months so I was prepared to wait.

Updating my last post, I just picked up the QSL cards from the Post Office and they are absolutely spectacular.  Well worth the wait.

I have been waiting for my cards since Jun 7th. I have been waiting 21 weeks which I expected only 8 to 12, I guess some people just get them faster. I have been getting my mails answered fast within 24 hours, use info@octavia.com. I decided to order from them from their reviews here on eham, but if I knew it was going to take this long I wouldn't have done it. I already gave them a ZERO last week at the 20 week point without receiving the cards. The excuse I got from my last email was because of a slow up from US customs because of our war on terror, which could be true. I was promised to have my card in 10 to 14 days, we will see.

That's the rap on this company. They make really nice cards for a decent price, but have the misfortune of residing in a country with a poor postal system. You will most likely get your cards, but will have to wait. As for passing around your email address around, this really is a poor business practice on their part. For that very reason, I wouldn't do business with them.
