1 You will notice that the catalog is about 100 pages smaller, but still contains all the products you need from NMC!
We’ve consolidated all signs into a section at the front of the book. Based on your feedback, we found that positioning products throughout the book made it difficult for you to find them.
Finally, notice all signs are now alphabetical by section – again to make it easier for you to find the products you are looking for!
