Catalog Advance Sales

In an effort to reduce the number of unsold catalogs, we are asking you to order your catalog in advance through our pre-sales process.
Knowing the number of catalogs required up front will help us to keep the cost of printing to a manageable price.

Advance order cost per catalog:
$18 (pick up at Specialty)
$25 (mailed after the specialty, marked with resuts)
Be sure to use the quantity field to indicate the number of catalogs required and ensure that your mailing address is correct if purchasing mailed catalog(s)
