Re: [BKARTS] binder's board

I have the aforementioned Gane board in stock and use it for quick
commercial/agency work. It is very lightweight and soft, sanding is near
impossible as it replaces one sheared edge with a rough edge.  Also, because
it is laminated, if you are going to fill in the inner boards, be sure and
cover the other side with the same amount of inner filling paper or it just
warps.  I gave some .098 to a binder who has a small paper cutter and she
said it cut very easy.  My Jacques cuts it like butter.  One plus is that it
is dirt cheap.  It does not come in bundles, you purchase in lots of 25.
