Please send me a sample of the board as well as your list of other current
offerings. I used to be on your mailing list, but having moved twice in the
past two years haven't seen anything. The sample should be sent to Peter
Verheyen, 107 King St, Ithaca, NY 14850

On a different note, are their any plans to produce a thiner board, in say
the 60pt range. This would be really desirable, especially for smaller,
more elegant bindings. There is nothing more annoying than a small book say
6x9 and less than an inch thick bound in thick boards with hugh squares.
It's an aesthetic thing as well as structural. What would also be really
nice are sheets of good quality (acid-free) pressboard in say 20, 40, and 60
pt thicknesses. Cutting up "Gaylord" binders get's expensive.
