*FAQ: “Why don’t you print our manuals for us? How come we have to do it ourselves?”
A. We are responding to feedback from the general population regarding paper-saving acts. Increasingly, workshop attendees are requesting pdf-only resources. We have the technology now to write onto pdfs very efficiently.
Coupled with that are the logistics and costs involved in having manuals printed, especially from overseas. Giving you the option to print or keep the pdf helps us keep our costs down and ultimately helps us keep ticket prices affordable.
We do hope you understand!
