Got a call Monday @ 5:00 saying there were not enough prints of Duplex and they were pulling it. So 2 papers in Canada had the ad with Duplex but we could not pull it as they went to print already. Anyone else get this call? What do you bookers do when you get a call like this?

I thank God,because I hear its a real turkey.
Seriously,if I really need it,I tell them my ads are in,and cannot be changed.Other times,I either holdover something,or scramble to replace it.
Miramax is the biggest offender of this stuff.Last week they were begging for dates,and Monday they cut back on prints.They do this on a regular basis,and you can not count on a Miramax booking to be good.Its not the local salespeople-its NY that keeps changing their minds.Remember CHICAGO?

Charlie is so right. Miramax does this often. I lost two bookings of Duplex, but it was around noon that I was informed. They said that it was tracking poorly and that they had decided to cut their loses. I also hear it's pretty bad.

We just held over what we had. Thank goodness it was before the ad deadline.
