    You can request a sample swatch book from Rosco or Lee Colors websites, or just buy them for .05 cents each from B&H. (Max 5 per an Order).

    it was actually a form on their website, but the dude actually emailed me 3 or 4 times trying to get me to buy stuff. :rofl: their website is on a sticker on my book, i'll get you a link to it tonight. :mamoru: but i'm not sure a company in kc is going to mail a book to cali. :o

    edit -actually, just go here, find a local dealer to request one from

    You know, I think if these guys got with the program and made the gels to fit the flash perfect, then made the books availiable for like $15 shipped, I think they'd make a killing. That price point seems more than reasonable.

    Wow. I filled out a form and got one in a couple days and then another in a month. I don't know if they forgot that they already sent me one or what, but I got two :rofl:

    I just dropped the 22.50 on the larger swatchbook. There's enough for 4 flash gels per sample.
