I had a new newsletter crop into my inbox. Put in "July15" for 15% off thru July 14th....Not as good as the 25% but better then a poke in the eye.

I bought them on the 12th. It's alright though.TheCollector wrote:It's the 15th today, code expired yesterday.Twice wrote:The "July15" code isn't working.
Yes I always tape the open edge (which is the bottom for me) that insures the DJ stays very snugly in the brodart. If I wind up getting a book with brodart cover that isn't snug, or I mess up badly I just get a new one and re-do it.systemcrashoverride wrote:I bought mine through the link I listed above and after it had gone through on my Visa, I received an e-mail from Brodart telling me I should have ordered through the Canadian version of the site. They ended up charging me extra for the package and extra to ship. But I've received it already and started wrapping my books.
Does anyone tape the top edge once it's been folded over onto the paper on the inside?
Also, I've noticed most of my dust jackets don't want to sit snug into the bottom edge of the Brodart sleeve. They've been wrapped around the books so long that they don't want to lay flat in order to drop all the way in, and I don't really want to flatten them out too much for fear of damaging them. Advice?
No real reason, I just feel like I can see what I'm doing better when I shove the jacket up and then tape closest to me, I suppose I could just flip the DJ upside down and get the same result.systemcrashoverride wrote:Any reason you put the open end on the bottom? I would have thought the joined end would be stronger, and that it should be the end to get more shelf wear. I'll snug mine up and tape the flaps down. The Brodart seems to hide imperfections in the dust jackets as well, everything about them looks nicer once they're wrapped once you get used to the slight sheen.
