New Flysheet Options

The popular translucent flysheet. The new “flysheet same as endsheet” option.
We know most of you and your clients love our translucent flysheets, but occasionally a few customers have told us that you would prefer to have a more traditional flysheet that is the same as the endsheet, or both. Now you have full control over the flysheet. Your flysheet ordering options now include:
  • Translucent flysheet (still the default)
  • Flysheet same as endsheet
  • Double flysheet
The “double flysheet” option has the first flysheet to be the same as the endsheet, and a second translucent flysheet. A truely elegant touch available only from SharedInk. All these options are available with our standard and premium endsheets.

Three new faux-leather colors

 We’ve expanded our popular faux-leather materials to include three new colors in a smooth leather style. The three new colors are a great complement to our well received Ostrich style materials. Our new faux-leathers are available in the following colors:
  • Black
  • Metallic Blue
  • Steel

Black has a very similar look and feel of our glove quality leather material used on our leather books. It is an ideal choice for clients that like the traditional leather appearance but would rather not have an animal hide on their book. It also allows you to offer a leather style book at a lower price point for your cost conscience clients.

Metallic blue gives you a fun alternative to offer your clients. It might not be for everyone, but some clients will surely fall in love with it.

The Steel material is a great alternative if black isn’t quite right.

To order a faux-leather book, select “Leather Hardcover Book” when you start your ordering process. From there you can select the padded or no-padding option.
