Is there any news?
I approved the proofs for printing on 5th December, and they are dispatching the copies today. (Finished them on Friday, but missed the post.) Assuming they don't work weekends, that's still 6 days: 10 copies per day. :lol:
I see. Maybe because you are a new customer. they do my scores, even large, in 2 days.

My sample copy has just arrived. It's a really nice job. I'm a bit worried about the staple tearing through the block with use. (68pp)

The printing is nice and black and the off-white text paper is lovely. I'll be interested to see what the binding is like for my conductor scores, between 100 - 200 pages -- whether it will lay flat, etc.

I suppose farming out all my printing is an alternative to 'going digital'.

Good to hear!

If you have 200 pages they will be bound with the spiral.

Exactly so is what I do for years.

Good luck!
