  1. Dear mister Grench, I love your blog!
    I m a beginner, been binding only for to years now, and most of this stuff is not new to me, yet here and there I find surprisingly new things, tips, tricks and stuff that make interracting with other binders, more experienced and more talented, such as yourself, worth while.

    Also, your paring knives are to die for...

    My page is here, but it s in Romanian, sorry about that. Interested in link exchange?

  2. Digital printing is a form of service that can be done with ease and efficiency in the manufacture of printed materials. There are many different forms of media as well as ways to print that have encouraged the consumer to have their own printer in order to make their own products. Of course, the quality of the personal and commercial printers differs immensely.
