McCray Press is Bad

Just in case you ever have the chance to do any business with a company called McCray Press, based in Saginaw Michigan, don't! I will personally no longer call you a friend if you give these people any money whatsoever. After Matt died Christmas morning last year, I received a mailing from McCray Press in Michigan. Basically, what they did was troll the newspapers for obituaries, search for addresses for any relatives listed in the text, and then mail them a laminated poorly reproduced copy of of the obituary. Included with this mailing was an entreaty to purchase more laminated copies. At the top of the order form, they included a checkbox for "I am keeping the Laminated Memorial Newsclipping and I am enclosing $3.00 for it."

Due to the fact that we had to delay the funeral for the holidays and hold a second memorial service in Matt's new home of Sacramento, I even got this before the funeral was held. I took the postage paid business reply envelope they sent with the promotion and stuffed it full of the heaviest crap I could find so they would have to pay extra for it. Returned that with no order.

I suspect they have no other business other than this crappy one. The order form calls the business McCray Press Plastic Laminators. So it's probable they won't ever be bidding on any real printing services. But if they do, and you have anything to do with sending them money, don't tell me. Cause if I find out, I will never speak to you again.

So now I am pulling this from my pile of papers and putting it into the recycling basket. Hopefully, I will never come upon anything to do with them again and I can forget about them.

    I don't plan to delete my LJ (I paid for permanent status, dammit), but this will be the last post. I don't plan to read it anymore, either…

    Turns out my insurance is cut off at midnight tonight, not the end of the month. In a way, that's a good thing. Now I'll move my appointment…

  • Home from the cruise, off to Sunnyvale

    A week off, but tomorrow I head to the home office for a week there.
