A pleasure, Henry.
Just like to mention that I am quite pleased that even if the printer stated up to 15 days for delivery, all orders were delivered way faster, in time for Christmas.

Happy new year to you all !

Good news ! We are closing in !

wider (9cm vs 4.5 cm)

Still needs some adjusting, a bit too wide. Rings must be moved 0.5 cm.

I am happy with quality of ringbinder and paper.
A few changes (bar code is wrong, printer was not stated) and we are good to go.

Hello all,
I now have most details available to determine prices for the ringbinder.

Regular price (shipping costs not included) will be:
85 GBP (UK)
99€ (EU)
115 USD (US)
(UK & EU price including VAT, US price excl. sales tax if aplicable).

The printer is finishing the first batch of ringbinders, next week I will receive them.

As shipping to the US will be the slowest (weeks!), I will ship most of it there first.
The rest of the batch (28 ringbinders) is available for a "pre-order" special offer.
Which - sadly - excludes the US and RoW. US customers have to wait for the books to arrive at RD Enterprise.
(Unless you are willing to pay 50€ shipping costs ...)

The details of the offer:
80 GBP incl. shipping UK.
95 € incl. shipping to EU countries (no islands)

Conditions are: prepayment, wire transfer or paypal.

Please email to [email protected], you will get a formal email with indications and legal stuff.

The quantity is limited to 28 !
Not because I want you to rush to buy, but because there will be only 28 available.

FIRST COME FIRST SERVED !
PRICE OFFER WILL BE REPEATED AS NEXT BATCH ARRIVES !

UK and EU shipping will be most likely be done on February 18th,
transit time is about 5 to 7 days, depending how far you live from mayor cities.

RoW Customers:
I strongly recommend the softbounded version of the book,
half the weight and volume of the ringbinder.
The printer has locations in UK, US and Australia.

**********************************************
Also, there will be an optional slipcase, same color as book, printed on the outside, custom size to host the ringbinder.
I am not sure when it will be available, details and pictures next week.
It will costs about 16€ to 19€ (depends on VAT clasification), problem is shipping costs.
It is light but voluminous to ship, so if you are interested, you should wait with your ringbinder order.

regards
Guillermo

Hello,
just a quick update:

Susan Miller and Club Lotus UK have received the ringbinders, the shipping to the US is still "intransit".
