Music Folders: Special Deals and Options

How would you like to save 25%, or even 50%, on the world's best choir folders?

We produce tens of thousands of music folders each year - and we wouldn't be known for our quality if we didn't apply stringent standards to the folders we offer. Our quality control inspectors separate "factory second" music folders from our production. Their issues are minor, but they're simply not perfect enough to be called the world's best. These are known as our "Grade A" factory seconds. "Grade B" seconds might have more issues but they're most frequently perfect folders with incorrect foil-stamping (which is easily blacked out with a felt pen!).

We frequently bring these with us to the choral events we attend. They're extremely popular, and "early bird" singers in the know often come straight to our booth to have first pick of what are still super choir folders. Choir directors sometimes purchase full orders of our factory seconds, which allows them to enjoy savings of hundreds of dollars on music folders that still leave their choirs singing joyfully - and more comfortably than ever before.

We are discounting 25% on "Grade A", and 50% on "Grade B" factory second folders. Scroll down down the page for full descriptions. Also note we aim to update this page before Wednesday, weekly, and only activate the "Add to cart" button when there are more than just a few available.

Regular Folder Options:

  • Three-ring adaptor: 3/4 in. (19mm)

    The removable three-ring adaptor is a handy option some times. It comes installed, and attaches using the cords that are already in your folder. You can add one, or two ring adaptors - you might want to hold the first half of a concert program in one, and have the other half ready in your second adaptor ready to quickly swap in at intermission, so you can spend the time chatting about the performance instead of fussing with paper. People who sing in more than one choir can also keep music separate. Attaching the adaptor to the folder with the cords adds security but is not required, you can just drop an adaptor with your set of music into your folder and be ready to go.

  • Three-ring adaptor for Choralex only: 1 inch diameter (25mm)

    The removable three-ring adaptor is a handy option some times. It comes installed, and attaches using the cords that are already in your folder. You can add one, or two ring adaptors - you might want to hold the first half of a concert program in one, and have the other half ready in your second adaptor ready to quickly swap in at intermission, so you can spend the time chatting about the performance instead of fussing with paper. People who sing in more than one choir can also keep music separate. Attaching the adaptor to the folder with the cords adds security but is not required, you can just drop an adaptor with your set of music into your folder and be ready to go.

  • Cord (approx. 2.5 yds/set) to add 10 more lengths in folder

    More Cords: Double the standard number of elastic cords.

    The standard number of cords is 10. You can purchase a cord upgrade to 20, if you think that your usual number of scores in a concert will be more than 10.

  • Clear Leaflet Pocket for The Black Folder (standard or deluxe)

    Clear Leaflet Pockets: Large (9" w x 4" h) clear plastic pocket affixed right on the front of the left inside expandable pocket; and also possible at both left and right using two clear pockets, in The Black Folder.

Description of Factory Seconds:

"Grade A"

These might have minor marks, scratches, or tiny tears on the inside (often from a mis-positioned adhesive pocket), or they don't close perfectly even - at least not to our strict quality standards. Their outsides may have extremely minor markings as well. Sometimes their hand straps have been refurbished or their rivets have been replaced - with a bit of reinforcing, if necessary, applied to the inside.

"Grade B"

The most frequent characteristic of Grade B folders are misprinted foil stamping - which is easily blacked out. Although these folders are perfect folders aside from the foil imprinted on them, they may also have a slightly wider range of quality issues - they might perhaps be a little more marked up on their outer surface. The erroneous imprinting most frequently takes place in only a single location, but it is possible it could appear in up to three locations, such as choir name, singer name, and the music folder number. As previously stated, a felt pen can effectively cover the gold foil so well that it is almost unnoticeable - and certainly not from the audience.

All factory second folders have our regular folder options (removable rings; extra cord; clear pocket) available for addition - but of course these newly added options are at regular price.

I'm so confident that you'll be happy with them that I'm extending our 30-day full merchandise refund policy to all grades of factory seconds this year. In the nearly unthinkable chance that you'd prefer not having any factory seconds once you've seen them, you are welcome to return them according to our RMA shipping instructions for full merchandise refund (exclusive of shipping).
