American Society of Interior Designers
The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) is the oldest and largest professional organization for interior designers with the largest residential and commercial membership. With more than 30,000 members, ASID establishes a common identity for professionals and businesses in the field of interior design. Through education, knowledge sharing, advocacy, community building and outreach, the Society strives to advance the interior design profession and, in the process, to demonstrate and celebrate the power of design to positively change people's lives. The association boasts 48 chapters throughout the United States and Canada. ASID was founded in 1975 with the consolidation of the American Institute of Designers (AID) and the National Society of Interior Designers (NSID).
I used this product in a woodblock printing class. I thought it was fine. Some of the women in the class bemoaned the plastic handle (not wood) but it is very convenient that the spare nibs can be kept inside the handle, and does it really matter if it is plastic? It was sometimes slow-going across the grain of the wood (white pine), but I don't know if that can be helped. The only problem I had was that the motion of carving would sometimes unscrew the cap in the handle, and I'd have to retighten it before it came off and the spare nibs fell out.
