Default Product updates!!

Well, it has been ten days since I last said anything about products from Exotic Blanks, so, there is LOTS to say NOW!!

In the "NOW PLAYING" column, we are pleased to welcome Ron (Brownsfn2) to our community of partners!! Ron labored long and hard to prepare enough different colors of paua blanks to allow you a good choice!! Dawn is still in the process of ADDING product, but we expect these will "Sail" off the shelf (shells don't fly) You can see the Paua shell blanks here: Exotic Blanks :: Guest Artist's Blanks :: Ron's Paua Abalone Shell Blanks

Recently we also added the "Thumb square" from Eric (CNCcutter). Eric has provided us with several color choices, which can be viewed here:
Exotic Blanks :: Tooling & Supplies :: Thumb Square - Choose Color
We are very grateful to Eric for choosing Exotic Blanks as his marketing partner for this unique and VERY useful product. If you don't have one, add it to your next order---they work great on round blanks, too!!

Maj'K blanks have become a GREAT seller!! And Ed D (edicehouse) continues to IMPROVE his offering!! NOW, he is offering a couple "two-color" mix blanks. I will be turning one tonight (it is glued up) to try to show the FANTASTIC color changes. You CAN try them in YOUR shop!! (studio??) Order from this page: Exotic Blanks :: Guest Artist's Blanks :: MAJ'K Color Shifting Blanks!

Hunting season has arrived!! Encourage your customers to give reindeer pens for Christmas!!! (Remember Reindeer--caribou---SHED their antlers---Rudolph was not damaged!!) MANY new blanks have just been posted last week!! You can make your selection here: Exotic Blanks :: Guest Artist's Blanks :: Knik River Wood Works :: Caribou Antler

And we have received NEW Rotacrylic patterns!!! Jeff is continuously adding to these very popular products---if you have not tried them, you should!!! Very interesting pen patterns that appeal to various "special interest" buyers. These are VERY limited edition type pens!! Take your choice here: Exotic Blanks :: Guest Artist's Blanks :: MasterScroller Artworks :: Rotacrylic Blanks

Also in the last ten days, both JohnU and Patty have sent blanks (for those who may NOT be familiar with them, John makes the Fantastic Feathers and has recently added some snake skin blanks, Patty is our resident professional artist who makes a few pen blanks. Both of these come and go within a couple days. So, if you want to purchase blanks from Patty or John, it is best to watch the "Newest Arrivals" (tab on top right of home page) every day.

Thanks to all for keeping us busy!!! A couple dozen orders are placed each day and we continue to ship "same day" for over 90% of our orders!! We thoroughly enjoy supplying your needs from our "pen-making partners"!!!!

Also, our phone number is now prominently displayed on the home page. We are here SEVEN days a week, from 10 AM to 10 PM--the times you actually are turning!! If you have questions, feel free to call!! I am always happy to help you conquer new materials and new challenges!! Been there, done that---now we can help YOU do it!!

Thanks for reading!!

Ed & Dawn

All of Ron's paua shells are now "up"!! We are not thrilled with the pictures, they don't "jump out" like the real blank does. So, I am giving you this link to ONE blank:
Exotic Blanks :: Guest Artist's Blanks :: Ron's Paua Abalone Shell Blanks :: Paua Abalone Shell Blanks - Natural Sierra #61

Use the magnifying tool to inspect this beautiful blank---they ALL are equally, strinkingly colorful--the magnifier makes it a little more "life-like"!! Try this on the blank of your choice--once you get to the "product page", the pictures will be far more impressive---still NOT as impressive as the blank---but order one and you can compare in your own "castle"!!

Thanks for looking and again our thanks to Ron for choosing to bring his artistry to ExoticBlanks!!!!

Ed, thank you for attaching the IAP aliases to the folks supplying the products. I think it helps to promote those people and also show the value of a site like this one.
