Now that I am back in the US and have survived the holidays, I am working on book weights again. You may have noticed that this new batch of book weights is a bit different than the original ones. I have switched from glass weights to steel weights. While steel is more expensive, there are numerous advantages to this:
- The weights are now slimmer and more streamlined, while weighing the same as the old ones.
- The weights can now be shipped in bubble mailers, rather than boxes, which will save customers money on shipping. This is particularly important, given the recent large hike in international shipping prices.
- I can source the steel from an American manufacturer, which is more eco-friendly than buying pounds of glass made halfway across the world simply because I cannot find the right size/shape glass weights from a domestic manufacturer.
I hope you like the new and improved book weights. More fabric options will be added in the very near future!
