This past weekend, I had an issue with one of my new Bundle Monster plates. The image I wanted to use just would not transfer to the stamper and/or my nail. So, I emailed customer service and asked them to send me a new plate. I heard back from them today and they suggested I test the other plates in my set to see if any others were faulty.
Hmmm, sounds like fun!

I'm so glad I tested the others! Well, I only tested BM-201 through BM-216... but 12 of the 16 plates had something wrong with them :-/
It was turning into a huge mess and I was wasting a lot of polish, cotton balls, and q-tips. I figured since 75% of the tested plates were faulty, the percentage wouldn't vary too much with the rest of the set. So, I stopped.

I stamped a lot of the images onto this paper. The images with with arrows next to them are the ones I had a problem with. Some plates were visibly defective (parts of the image weren't etched into the plate), while others just wouldn't transfer the image and/or were foggy when stamped. The 3 stars I drew on the page represent the 3 image plates I think are okay, while I'm unsure of BM-214.
If you've got the new Bundle Monster set and have experienced any problems with the plates/images, I suggest you test at least one image from each plate. Also, look closely at each image- some of the defects are clearly visible. Email customer service and explain the situation (unless, of course, you're okay with keeping defective plates). They seem very nice and easy to work with. I'll keep you posted!
Until next time...
