Hey folks,

So as you may have read in the newsletter the Bindery that I've been working with went out of business last month with their assets sold at auction. Luckily I was able to have another company get a hold of most of the stamping dies and specialty materials for me. I should get a full inventory next week but it looks like what I'm missing is:
- Digital files (their computers were sold off )
- At least some of the King books they kept for sizing purposes, I won't know which ones until next week.

As much as loosing the books suck, they can be bought again. If I would have lost the stamping dies that would have been a much harder blow. The dies are a couple hundred dollars each to make and I'm not sure how easy it would have been to reverse engineer the fonts/size etc to make identical dies.

The digital files would include the wraparound design for Joyland though, I'm trying to track that down by getting hold of some of the former employees. The new company thinks they can have things up and running by next month for some preliminary sample cases and take over production soon after.

Thanks for the updates Tomas. Sorry to hear about the problems but hopefully things will be back up and running again soon.

Cheers
James
