Most 12x24 rectified tile say right on the box to install with at least a 30/70 stagger due to curving of the tile. Customer wants it straight laid. Anybody have any issues with straight lay of 12x24 ?

Randy, I think you might be misreading or misinterpreting that. More likely they're telling you not to offset the tiles by more than 30 percent rather than suggesting they must be offset by at least that much.

Straight laying them helps to eliminate the problem caused by more offset.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Thanks cx. That makes sense. I just installed 600 feet of 12x24 last week on the brick pattern but they were not rectified and the tiles were very straight as I checked a few face to face.
