Anyone get this in the mailbox this week? I was impressed. Every monthly Rockler catalog is 147 pages long with a simple, stapled binding. This one has a square, glued binding with no staples, and is 195 pages long. Too, every previous catalog I’ve received over the last 3 years is in the company’s blue and maple-ish tan coloring. Sometimes the heading bar and Rockler text inside it are a reverse of these two colors, but usually not. However, this one is all-white, of a much heavier pound stock than the usual cover, and features an embossed and foiled blue and copper text/logo combo at the top. After a couple dozen previous issues, this one made me say “Wow!” out loud when I pulled it out of the mailbox. I always enjoy flipping through them anyway, but this one feels like a trophy version of the usual deal.
