I ordered this on 02/28/16 and was charged $47.93.

After paying $10.05 for USPS Priority shipping it arrived 13 days later in a flexible envelope with no protection and $2.74 worth of 1st Class postage on it in exactly this condition.

It was crumbled up and creased in areas to the point the ink was gone and the white showing through.

Now 26 days later, after numerous emails and promises of a refund, I finally had to file a credit card charge dispute.

I don't want to be unreasonable and try to support cottage industries, so I am seeking the opinions of my peers.

Decide for yourself if you want to order one.

I hope you wear the appropriate star spangled clothing, have a flag attached to the antenna and chant USA, USA, USA while flying. Otherwise people may think you are not a real patriot and that you support ISIS

Sorry to see that you got ripped off big time. I purchased the carbon fiber skin on Amazon for $12 with 2 day shipping.

They don't deserve to be in business IMO.  How difficult would it be to put it in a card backed envelope & post it?  I would expect to pay that much if it was international postage & even then, 5-7 days max.  Also, the postage company should cover it for damage, as in this case.

I couldn't confront the USPS w/any credibility and ask to be compensated for such a poorly packaged product which was clearly not for the intended use.
Who would think a flexible envelope for a flexible vinyl decal would survive the automated mechanical processing for regular mail.
Made no sense to me at all. Especially after paying $10.05 to mail a sticker!

I am looking at Decal Gal for my next purchase.
They seem very professional and communicate well and promptly.

These things are all over eBay for 16 bucks with free shipping, shop around a little. You got robbed.

I didn't care about the price.
I wanted that particular design.
At triple retail, I expected stellar service and quality.
Or at least adequate. I got neither.

Just ordered a new skin from Decal Girl.
I will post a comparison when it arrives.
I am interested in seeing the difference in the quality of how it gets shipped.

And here is the new skin from Decal Girl. Even though the cardboard was bent in transit, the skin was pristine due to proper packaging. Compare it to the original post!

But would look into a full color wrap from decalgirl.
