Re: [BKARTS] page hinging material

My original message referred to "linen" tape. My mistake! The material is
cambric cloth tape, cotton not linen, but strong nevertheless. It is
available from Gaylord, online , or at:


Ungummed White Cambric Tape
Order # CC-WC4T  4" X 25yds        $16.85ea

Good luck,
