By ordering free IBD bookmarks you have agreed to pass them out instead of, or in addition to, your own bookmarks for the month of April.

All bookmarks contain a small blank spot (2"w x 1.25" t) for store stamps or stickers. 

We encourage all stores to bring in backlist and companion titles by IBD authors (see catalog for suggestions). This helps create context for the IBD items and will enliven your displays.
