Interested in Something Else?

We are certainly able to bring in other paper stocks from our suppliers. Should you require a certain colour for your text pages or a little heavier cover stock anything is possible - we'd be happy to help you figure out your options.

Keep in mind, however, that your book cost will increase as we will not be volume purchasing with the distributor.
