JNB Try-n-Buy
This new JNB program is available to guilds in the USA. Your members get to try an array of tools, pens, inks, markers, and papers. They then have the chance to order those items - and your guild can earn 10% of those sales!

The details:
  • We send you a box chock-full of supplies. Included also are price sheets for the items, color charts for inks/paints, and order forms.
  • The guild then has a meeting and members try out whichever tools they wish. Most guilds have found success in having several stations: Coliro/Finetec (we send ALL the colors!), Ink, Markers, Fountain Pens, Ruling/Folded pens, etc. We include plenty of sheets of paper for testing.
  • Shipping costs: $20 to ship the tools and for their return (a prepaid UPS tag is provided). We recommend charging around $1 per attendee to cover the shipping cost.
To sign up or get more info about having a Try-n-Buy event, email michael@johnnealbooks.com. We can only accommodate two guilds per month, so contact sooner for better availability.

After the Try-n-Buy event, there are two options for ordering:
  1. Post-event Group order: The guild sends in one order and collects payment from members. The group order then ships all at once, to one address. Shipping charge is actual UPS cost for orders under $500; orders over $500 receive free shipping. The guild earns a 10% commission on this group order. Most guilds distribute the items at the next meeting after the try-and-buy.
  2. Post-event Individual orders: We provide a 10%-discount promo code, and members place their own orders, which are shipped directly to them. Normal shipping charges apply. The guild does not get a commission for these individual orders.
