Looking for a Nielsen

Rick Granick

I recently got a new set of samples for Nielsen profile 24 to replace my old ones which had faded. It included a sample I never had before, so I assumed it was new. Well, apparently it existed for a while but has since been discontinued, because none of my suppliers seem to have it. It did appear in the 2017 Nielsen catalog.
What I'm looking for is #24-428 Bright Brushed Silver, a chop 23 x 29-1/4.

Thanks.

To give you a smile, it's mixed metaphor time. :D

After following a rabbit trail, here's the scoop: Bottom line is , you can order it directly from Nielsen Bainbridge. This might involve setting up an account. Back story is, it was made as a specially item for one customer. It wasn't sent to regional suppliers and/or framers in general. Nielsen has no idea how a sample ended up in your box. I wished Joe at NB some extra sprinkles on his next cupcake, for finding out. What a great guy.

Wow, thanks for researching that. I will give them a call. I do have an account, although I haven't used it in a while since my local International distributor carries the whole NurreCaxton line now.

Thanks again for the info, Shayla. I was able to order the chop today. I told the person in customer service your story, and she said it looks like the "special customer" is Artistree, but apparently they do not have an exclusive on it. I don't understand why Nielsen doesn't just offer it to everyone through their distributors, because it is very cool looking.
