    No, "I would be pleased if you would send me some samples."

    Although in this context it sounds authoritative and aggressive in tone, I would use "pleased" with "with".

    Paul:
    Do you think "I would be pleased" - despite the lack of the plural 'we' - still sounds a bit royal? - 'lofty' anyway.

    How about something with 'appreciate/appreciative'?

    Over to you.

    Perhaps I should have said a bit;it might be because I would use "I would appreciate it if..." or "I would be grateful". But no, I wouldn't say royal. Trouble is we don't have the whole context.

    I would probably just say, either;

    1) I would be (very/extremely) grateful if you could send me...

    2) I would (really/very much) appreciate (it), if you could send me...
