Great Paper Find!

Today, Jim and I went to Conklin, NY to see what was left of a going out of business sale. DM Business Products is going out of business and getting rid of all that is left of the business. Let me just say they have a number of broken cards of 23"x35" papers (and some 8/12"x11." cartons). We picked up two broken cartons for $20.00. The stocks we bought are Neenah paper; one Classic Crest the other Environment. Retail price listing on their site is $209.00 and $190.00 (for full cartons of course). I'd say the one carton was 2/3 full the other about 1/2. Only problem is your left cutting these large sheets down to the size you wish. Here is the listing we found on Craigslist I must say this much, the gentleman that helped us out was super nice. He like so many of us have lost our jobs, he has been in the printing business since the age of 12 and is watching the business he's worked for so many years be carried away piece by piece. My sincere thoughts go out to each person and family who is dealing with this same situation.
