Hi again Ms. Horst,  For some reason I did not see all the replies from Mr. 
Cooper.  But wait before your order the Superfrost slides.  If you are not 
familiar with them they are good as Mr. Cooper says but they can be pricey.  We 
use a great guy at PathSUPPLY, who is cc'd here, that can get you a comparable 
(if not the same) slide at a lower price point.  Also, we use slides packaged 
for PathSupply that are a good price point and excellent quality esp. the 
Bright White slide is comparable to the Superfrost but at a lower price point.  
Also, sorry I would suggest you heat them before you send them and communicate 
with them like someone else said.  I always ask how they want them treated 
before I send the sections.
E-van
