Anyone want to have a guess as to what has  just happened with this job.
Keep in mind I have probably spend over 30hrs of my time trying to figure out a solution on this one.

One of our customers is a HUGE eco firm that does solar panels and clean energy. They're in several states. In the past two weeks, we've thrown out over 5 million envelopes and over 5 million combined preprinted shells because they will no longer be using them.

I called a customer last night about their funky pages and she told me she was actually on the beach in Florida while talking to me.
