Stillman and Birn Samples

Hey Guys,

A couple of months ago, someone posted that S&B was giving out
samples of their different journal papers.

I was wondering if anyone knows if that offer is still in effect.
I had sent in a request, and never heard from them. And of course
I lost the link.

Thanks

DougN

Re: Stillman and Birn Samples

The Pack of sample papers come in yesterday>Yowza! This is some nice looking stuff. I'll just stare at it for a while! There was even a little personal note from Michael (owner/bossman?)....Without even trying it yet, I know I'll be getting one or ten of these.

Now I see why they do the sample packs....the stuff sells itself!

Thanks,

DougN

Re: Stillman and Birn Samples

Michael, are you still listening? I heard the exciting news that the Delta/Beta papers will soon be available in hardbound! But I didn't see the official announcement. Any idea when they'll hit the market? I can hardly believe that a heavy paper like that can be stitched, but I'm thrilled to hear it! Will the binding be flexible enough to bend backwards, just like the Alpha/Gamma hardbounds?

Hi Tina,
We actually posted the announcement on our Facebook page here: http://on.fb.me/Knswnv We expect these to be available in July. We showed the first prototypes at the NAMTA trade show two weeks ago and got major thumbs up from everyone. Because the sewing of the signatures has to be in very small batches, the book opens completely flat even without breaking in. Thanks much for your interest.
Michael
