Most order requests had to be done twice or more to complete the job to my satisfaction.
To make things right? Don't cut corners on materials. Don't try to patch something up - looks worse. Don't circumvent your approval process with the customer.
The turnaround time from order to receiving labels is very long. My last order took over a month to get to me, and the reason given to me was that a larger order took precedence over mine. The order before that was forgotten, and I had to remind the office that I placed it, and it still took several weeks after that.
