    Haha.. thanks for taking the trouble!
    Ralph said that it was made available because I was asking so many questions about materials :D

    Also not mentioned is that the holder caps are Dyed Strong and Flexible.
    So you get to see how great the dyed colors work.

    Very nice design! This should be a best seller, especially for only $5 when you count in the gift certificate!

    Do you also get the nice tray shown in the photo? This does not seem to be listed in the items you get???

    I assume you're meaning the holder for the samples? Yep, that's included as well!

    Received my sample kit recently
    but the 25$ coupon did not have a code on it...

    Is there also a glass sample that can be purchased separately
    (I found the 'a' gold sample.. so I assume there is a 'c' glass sample, but I can't find it under the products gallery)

    Hi Eric,

    I'm sorry to hear that. Please contact our Customer Service team at and they'll sort this out for you!

    oops forgot I posted on forum too...
    nevermind Bart, I emailed customer service and Maartje has sorted the coupon out for me.

    oh and for those who are also looking for the glass sample, I'm told it's not available because the size of the glass print shrinks and it is not accurate enough for the sample kit
