I know this has been recommended (by Dingle I think?) and I have got their catalogue through. Their cards seem very reasonable, especially if you buy quite a few, is the card of good quality?

I like the sizing guide in the front, it all made sense!!

Yes, I do use them pootle! I subscribe to their quarterly mag, which gives me vouchers to use, usually a couple with 10% off and one with £2.50 off P&P.

Personally I am happy with them, I like the quality of their card, although now days I tend to fold most of my own and only buy in apertures, or pearlised...etc, the things that I can't make up easily myself.

Now I have quite a lot of basic supplies I tend to buy in bulk as much as possible. I might but 500 envelopes and poly bags one quarter and then not have to buy anymore of that size for a while.
Most of my cards tend to be A5 size anyway so it works out well for me.

Although I haven't used them myself, I have also heard good reports about Ideal Envelopes (UK?) and also PDA, who also offer the same sort of deals I believe.

I think the CC catalogue is a must, a good reference even if you don't use them that often.

Happy spending!

I also tend to "club" together with a few other crafters to maximise the reduced "bulk" prices!

I bought some envelopes and cellophane bags from Ideal and they worked out very reasonable.

Thanks, it was the aperture cards I was looking at, much cheaper than the packs of 5 available normally, and the range of cards is fab. I have seen ideal envelopes too but I like the way CC tells you what envelopes to buy!

Did you get the little pad of samples from them pootle, codes something like CLIP1, free of charge. It good to have, it doesn't have all samples in it, but the marority, and great to colour match and see the card thickness,quality..
