A Bookbinder’s Black Friday

Another year, another Black Friday.

There is no big box shopping for me this year. My plan is to go into downtown Montpelier for Flannel Friday, our snuggly local version of this shopping day.

If you love making books like I do, then you might be interested in the fantastic online sales that are happening today (and throughout the weekend):


As part of their November sale, Oak Knoll Books is offering 20% off a selection of their books about bookbinding. No special code is needed – just click on the link and the discount is already applied to the book prices.

Pergamena, producer of stunning fine leathers and parchment, is offering 50% on all sheep parchment, full skins, and cut sheets. From 11/27 through 11/30, use code PERGSHEEP50 to get the discount.

Starting at midnight on 11/27 and ending at 11:59 p.m. on 11/28, John Neal, Bookseller is offering free standard shipping within the U.S. on all orders of $100 or more. Use code freeship at checkout for the discount.

And then there’s Paper Source – the origin of my bookbinding powers. As I’ve mentioned before, I learned how to make books while working there during my grad school days. Now through 11/30, get free standard shipping on online orders over $50.00 with code SHIP50.

Volcano Arts has a selection of overstock and clearance items marked 50% off – no code is needed, just visit their sale page and prices are as marked.

From now through 12/31/15, Arnold Grummer is offering a 20% discount on all paper and book presses. And on top of that, you can save an additional 10% by using code SHOPSMALL10. The coupon can be used on sale items and is good through Sunday, November 29th.

Oh my goodness…and I thought I was immune to all this shopping frenzy. I feel my defenses crumbling! Thanks (I think) for the awesome round-up of deals. Temptation calls…

Heather –

It just got worse. I caught wind of two more sales and added them to the list (Volcano Arts & The Paper Place).
