As many of you know this is our first hardcover annual—another thing that has been ten years in the making— and we only ordered enough to fulfill our original orders. As you can imagine a hardcover costs more than a soft-cover but if there’s any way possible this year we’d like them all to be hardcovers. But since the newsstand sales outlets ask for softcover editions we have to split an order between hardcover and softcover editions which makes each a bit more expensive. So we’ll see. We’ve learned a great deal about the production of hardcovers with No. 10 and will apply that going forward.
Special thanks to Prolific Printers in Winnipeg for an outstanding job!
If you’ve ordered a hardcover annual they will be going in the mail late this week or early next week. Allow seven to ten working days for delivery domestically and two weeks for international deliveries.
And let us hear your feedback. And check out the other item that’s taken us ten years to develop: our medal.
Of course, the softcover edition is ready to mail, same great content!
