K.O, that green you got is a really really nice wrap. and would look great on a Gretsch set from the 60s or 70s.

For your Rogers, I have to agree that Buddy WMP is the way to go.

I was thinking about ordering some of that too. Did she indicate whether it would come back in stock?

It's somewhat unclear about the "in stock" wraps whether they make up batches of good sellers to have in stock or do they only make up extra when someone orders a run of a particular color and then keep some of that to sell?
She was not able to tell me when that wrap would be available, however I may have found another source via ALIBABA. Their cost is about $10.00 per sheet ( at least on their web site) but their minimum is 10 sheet. I would not mind buy the 10 sheets and then sell the 5 extra.

Seems to me I remember something about that site not being all that trustworthy. I have nothing but memory to go on, however. If you do order from them please let us know what happens.

Interesting. I wonder what the "chip" size is like on that? 10 sheets shipped the way mine came would be very pricey but maybe shipped via a (literal) slow boat from China would be reasonable.

Ok got a quote from Vickie at SASA plastic.
10 sheet minimum. But can mix and match
So I chose 4 sheet white pearl with white backing, Black Diamond pearl. 3 sheet and green pearl 3 sheet All big pattern-total $210 + 125 shipping door to door.
Size is 700 mm x 1600 mm. .50 mm

Got some response from the other source SASA Import.
I had asked for the total amount, and a picture of the actual wrap I was buying. Mind you in my previous e-mails I had emphasized the pearl BIG PATTERN.
Was very discouraged today to receive an email with the picture of the wrap I was buying .. does not look like a big pattern to me, plus she mentioned color for the wrap is same front and back meaning Translucent..............
Below the picture Vickie sent me......

I'm bummed...

YOU remember correctly.!!!
SASA is not a trustworthy company

I got a strange response from my inquiry about the big pattern vs the original picture i was getting a quote.
I basically was told that I wanted too much and they tried their best.
That the wrap in the picture was PVC not Celluloid and I asked for celluloid. ( I never did)
That I was not gonna find any place in China that would do small order like I wanted..
So I asked why did you not tell me this the first time i asked ??

In comparison Holly from Jiujiang Juhong New Material, was a much more professional sales lady and was upfront. She gave me option just not what I wanted. I will go back to her and maybe choose a different color not sure yet.
But this is what was advertised on the website... Very deceiving...

Back in the hunt for WMP
