    Bostic and Sullivan were the only place. They no longer sell it. I contacted them a couple weeks ago about it. They said they were going to put together a kit but would not be selling the tissue anymore. I was bummed. I wanted to give it a go this holiday break

    Well that sucks! I sent them an email 2 weeks ago enquiring about the tissue and they didn't even have the courtesy of answering me.

    Eric, making your own tissue is easy. My glop is gassing out while I watch the Canucks' game, and I'll be pouring tissues tonight. I'd be happy to help at any time.

    Years ago at the APUG conference I watched Sandy King make "glop". I suppose I will just have to make my own tissues. Bummer.

    Thanks for the offer, I might just take you up on it.

    Yes I would rather watch glop gassing out than the Canucks... Go Leafs Go.

    Haha...the nucks gassed out the hawks 5-1.
    Pouring nicely gassed out tissues as we speak. It's a gas.
    Eric just give us a shout. Join Sandy's Yahoo Carbon group. There's also a facebook page... Hope you take the plunge!

    Carbon printing is something I've always wanted to do. 2018 will be the year!

    I'll have to make an updated version. Some things have changed over the years...

    I have always gotten quick responses from B&S. A few weeks ago their news letter said they were going to be out of town.

    I've been a part of Sandy's yahoo group for some time now and am quite frustrated with it. I do not find it to be a source for learning as a beginner. It is extremely difficult to find anything specific. I could just be unfamiliar with how the group is organized. Tons and tons of advanced technical stuff but the basics seem to be lost. If I was much more advanced maybe that stuff would make sense. I did not know about the Facebook group.

    Mark, I understand where you're coming from. The search there is terrible... You're better off to just pose a question there. It's still a very helpful place. Here's the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/Carbonprinting/
