To order these products from us, just print the order form, fill it out, then mail or fax it to us, or drop it off in our store. The Tim Holtz catalog begins on page 93. Our Order Form is at the back of the catalog on page 154. To print the order form you need to use the Print tab (see the picture to the left) in the left side of the window – it's the middle of the five tabs along the left side of the catalog. Then you can select "Print Left Page" and Print.
