Description of Factory Seconds:
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.
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).
