What I paid for

Figuring out whether I "got what I paid for" when I purchased something is surprisingly hard when that thing is inexpensive. How low quality should I consider expected?

I bought a group of index cards (because the Hipster PDA concept is actually working quite well for me). They arrived today. As hoped, they are printed with a grid pattern. The printing is imperfect; several of the lines don't go all the way down. The cards are not perfect rectangles, cut slightly too large, are more "heavy paper" than "light cardboard", and came pretty badly curved, with the shrinkwrap apparently on too tightly.

I got 3,600 cards for about $20, though, so how much room do I have to complain about objects that cost less than seven-tenths of a cent?

I sincerely don't know the answer to that.
