1986 Catalog

In 1986, Royalwood Ltd.'s first "full blown" - printed by a printer - catalog was launched. Before that, we served the local community, a few out of state customers, & had a "typed & mimeographed" price sheet. We did not take credit cards. Everyone had an open account to begin with.

The first catalog was printed on tan paper with brown ink.
