When I worked for a hardware distributor back in the 80’s, I had a secret hiding place where I kept my prized possessions…including a small cardboard “book” that contained samples of each of the common finishes used for hardware.  I had to keep it hidden, because people were always trying to steal it or rip out the little metal pieces to send as finish samples.  Once the finished piece was gone it was impossible to replace, and the finish sample books were really difficult to come by.

I just received a package from our AWESOME and accommodating marketing manager, Melany Whalin, and inside the box were 10 of the new Allegion finish sample binders!  I could hide them away, but because of my generous nature I’m going to send them to 10 of you!  All you have to do is leave a comment below telling me something you’d like to see added to iDigHardware.com, or something about the site that helps to make your job a little easier.  I will pick 10 names at random and you can start looking for a secret hiding place to keep your new finish binder.
