FREE TO BOOKSELLERS – we have 1/3 page flyers and simple B&W bookmarks that you can order from us, to be included with any book order.

RETAIL ITEMS – and we have high-end, full-color bookmarks that retail for $2.50 each, with a minimum order of one set of 4. We have bookplates in the works as well.
