Just to put a data point out there, I have some d'Ancap cups and have found the design nice but the quality control concerning. Out of 18 cups (across 3 different styles) I found 3 to have defects beyond normal. The vendor agreed with me on 1 of the 3. Interestingly, they advised that the defect I saw on the remain 2 were typical of that model cup.
Not trying to bash, just putting some data out there. I may be more picky than the average consumer but when purchasing a "premium" product I do expect that it delivers.

Well, at ACF cups you'd find defects on at least 10 out of 18. Ancap and IPA make the best quality looking at the big Italian cup factories. Inker are ok, but not too well known, most people want Italian cups (a friend of mine distributes cups in Germany).

Good feedback and thanks. To me I could give two poops about the ocasional blemish in the glaze on the out side of the cup, color etc ;@) If the handle falls of well then that is an issue for me. i have a poured terazzo floor in that part of the house and it kills everything that gets dropped except ACF. Even correl dishes dont stand a chance but ACF cups were better than 50/50. I want the heaviest, thickest darn things I can find to hold the heat with no printing on them. I prefer the act classic shape but can live with tulip.
Yes i have a reason for leaving SCG off my list, yes it is my opinion, yes it is subjective as opinions are by definition, no don't start a flame war because you disagree.
