800 + pages of things I'll never need and never ordered from them.
It must weight 2lbs.

I used to get those, too.
Why they waste so much money on bad mailing lists, I’ll never know.

I used to work in a mailroom. I remember those catalogs and how much everything cost.

I have ordered from them twice. I get those massive catalogs. So wasteful. If I order from you online, I probably don’t need your paper catalog.

I see you the size and weight of the ULine catalog, and raise you the insane frequency of the Oriental Trading catalog. I haven't ordered anything from them since pre-Katrina (I think our son's birthday in 2002) and they still send me multiple catalogs a month.

After Katrina, I had to contact a bunch of companies and etc. to give them my new address -- not Oriental Trading. I got catalogs from them -- with the same odd misspelling of my last name -- within a few months. smiling smiley

If you need more storage bins for your U-Line catalogs, well, you know where to find them.

Likely to get this tossed to the other side, but...

"The company has been noted for COVID-19 pandemic-related controversies and the Uihleins' extensive political spending."

"Liz and Richard Uihlein are megadonors to conservative and Republican causes. The company and its employees have also extensively donated to conservative and Republican-affiliated political action committees; they were among the largest contributors to political campaigns during the 2020 election cycle, contributing over $31 million before June 2020."

"On March 13, 2020, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Liz Uihlein wrote in an email to lawmakers that the severity of the virus was being exaggerated in the media: 'At what point do we go back to our normal lives? This has been a huge disruption.' She reiterated her skepticism about COVID-19 in a September 2020 interview. The company and the Uihlens pushed for a recall against Democratic Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers, citing his response to the pandemic.

"In November 2020, Liz Uihlein sent out a company-wide email in which she said she and Dick Uihlein had contracted COVID-19. In late February 2021, The Guardian reported the company had experienced an infection rate of 14% compared to an overall rate of 8.7% in Kenosha County, Wisconsin, where the company is headquartered"

Yeah, the Uhleins are horrid. Unfortunately, they had the solid wooden dolly I needed. And I looked hard for alternatives.

Yeah, I stopped shopping with them some time back. Discovered we had a Grainger Supply within a short drive and go there instead.

Only familiar with them since I used to occasionally order items from them for work. They were one of the few providers of that kind of mailing and shipping supplies on the state contract list. Another was OfficeMax, they got on the list just before merging with Office Depot. But they did not offer as wide of a supply of various shipping supplies or in the quantities available through U-Line.
