Yeah, glad to get it back.
That said, I think the issue of uncuts not being fulfilled by major printers is a process issue. USPCC already states +-10% variance in their production run during quotation itself. My hypothesis is that pulling uncuts from the process may be a manual step which is akin to losing dollars. In the same time, they can produce lot many decks so it becomes a tradeoff between fulfilling an order or productivity.
Companies using Taiwan printer states in their quotation that they can't guarantee fulfillment of uncut sheets as well. Now, I hypothesize that considering the fact that Taiwan based printer works for LPCC, EPCC, HCPC etc. it is producing so many decks for all of them. Any issue arising due to manual intervention of pulling the uncuts off the press, may result in the escalation from the client/s. And, if the Taiwan printer hasn't been able to fulfill such orders before, it is much safer to put such a clause in their quotation so that they can stay safe.
MPC should be in a far better position as they use both digital and offset press extensively. My hypothesis here is that even if due to some production issue, uncut sheets are less in number, it can be found easily during reconciliation before shipping. They can go to their digital press then and get the difference done.
This is my understanding and I may be wrong here.
