True Tales

Accidental Skunk Lamination

The sign company only realized upon opening the cover.




Get the Funk Out of Here

Received a roll of laminate that had hit a skunk at some point. The contact had to have happened at packaging because when the plastic cover was removed, the smell permeated the air like a cloud and I swear it sucked the oxygen from our lungs. Thankfully, it was a sample roll! We left it in the garage overnight in hopes it would “air out,” but we had to trash it. Everything that roll came in contact with had to be left outside and washed. It was really bad.
