GRADE B FACTORY SECONDS WILL ALMOST ALWAYS HAVE MISPRINTED FOIL STAMPING, USUALLY IN GOLD.
While they may have similar issues described in Grade A folders, the most frequent characteristic of Grade B folders is misprinted foil stamping, usually in gold. They may also feature more serious non-conformance such as a crease across the cover or other more visible issues that still leave it a useful folder.
Created nearly 25 years ago, the Standard Black Folder is renowned as a sturdy, lightweight, comfortable music folder. Elegant and durable, its first tactile impressions are of quality and value that will last. While the Standard Black Folder opens wide to an ideal angle for singers, note that both conductors and singers love the similar '‘Deluxe Black Folder'’, which opens flat. This folder can be customized to your needs and is often popular with large ensembles.
