The PAGE System Explained

I just returned from the National Order of the Arrow Conference and realized something every important about the product that I sell while there for 10 days. It's not obvious how the PAGE system works to store and protect your patches and other collectibles. I use the acronym PAGE to stand for Plastic Archival Grade Envelope System. The key to this system is that your items go in envelopes that side load into the pages to create an attractive and archival safe way to display and store your collection. I hope this quick video explains the system and how I...

Dallas TOR Report

Dallas TOR Report

The 2nd stop on the Trade-O-Ree circuit for Best Hobby Pages in 2018 was the Dallas TOR which is held at the Grapevine Convention Center.  So far as I know the full BHP inventory had never been to a Dallas Trade-O-Ree so this was a good opportunity to introduce the product to collectors in that region.  Several people did make small purchases to test out the archival envelope and page system.  However one of the best known collectors in that area, Tracy Mesler, made a deal to take home several hundred dollars worth to test out on his extensive Region...
