I'll take a thousand (2 if you need it to make to 26,000). I'll need an
invoice from you; they are getting really picky about paying for things
around here!

Get a quote from American Paper Optics as well if they have the single axis
diffraction gratings available. They are www.*3dglassesonline*.com/
That's where I get my dual axis diffraction gratings in custom printed
frames for about 17 cents apiece when I order 25000 at a time.
