pH Pens Available In Quantity

In the last three months, several orders have been filled at the Advocate office for two or three hundred pH pens at the price of 70� a pen. I am working with suppliers to assure good pen available in quantity, filled and labelled by the supplier. If this is possible (and it may not be, because the usual minimum for an order is 100,000 pens), then they can be made available through mail-order houses.

Name Of The News

There have been two responses to the call for a shorter name for the Alkaline Paper Advocate. One was a vote for "Alkaline Rag" and one was a vote against.

List Of Alkaline Papers Available

An alphabetical list of alkaline papers is being shaped up in the office. Eventually it should be sent to all the companies involved, to have then check whether their papers are properly listed. Until then, it will not be printed. But we can send copies to readers on receipt of a stamped self-addressed envelope. This is the format:

Artemis & Artemis Text - Mohawk
Artist Drawing Bristol - Rising
Bellbrook Laid & Opaque - Cross Pointe
Blackstone Ledger - Weston
Bookbinders Matte & Reply Card Matte - Northw
Brite-Hue Envelope & Offset - Ward

Although entries have been combined on each line to save space, there are about 300 lines.

The Alkaline Paper Advocate is issued six times a year (1988 had 5 issues), and has about 250 subscribers. Subscriptions (which include a free pH pen) are on a calendar year basis: All start with the first issue of the year, unless requested otherwise, " end on Dec. 31.
