A Bookbinder’s Black Friday
Welcome to my 9th annual roundup of bookbinding-related Black Friday (and some beyond that) deals!
I did all of my damage during the Guild of Book Workers Standards of Excellence Seminar last month, so there will be no shopping for me. I also have a craft show this weekend and if I go shopping tomorrow, I won’t have enough time to panic the required amount.
There are several bookbinding-related online sales going on starting tomorrow (and some going on right now). Check ’em out:
On 11/29, Hiromi Paper is offering free domestic shipping on orders $100.00+ (after any discounts) with code kinyoobi2019. The offer is not valid on oversize items. On top of that, they’re having their annual sale from December 1 – 31. The sale is only for specific items, but the selection is pretty great. Discounts go as high as 50%.
