Subject: [Marbling] Paper & Card Source
Am forwarding this to all the paperholics out there. This is a cardstock source I use & thought this forum would be a good place to let people know of their specialty. They are good to deal with, which is important! Creatively, Pat K. Thomas, seenmymarbles@...

No minimum order as of today!
Yes we mean it!
Back in January we sent out a survey to see if there was interest in us opening the paper site up to small orders again. We were swamped with positive responses and got a lot of good feedback. We immediately began looking at companies that could take over stocking and shipping small orders for us, and quite frankly we just could not find anyone.
We almost gave up. Then we thought that perhaps we could make it work if we trucked supplies up from the LA warehouse a few times a week, and we shipped from our main office in Northern CA. This is what we did last holiday season and it worked out really well- why not do it all the time?!
By choosing this solution it gave us the ability to do a lot of things customers had asked for in the survey including...
1. No minimum order and no small order fee.
2. Priority Mail/Flat Rate Box shipping
3. Budget Shipping ($7.95 any size order)
4. Offering free shipping at $100 (some exclusions)
5. Dropping the pack size on popular items to 25 (from 50)
6. Offering some custom cutting and scoring
7. Allowing customers to order items that we already stock here at the office like: White Matte, White Glossy, Tsumugi and Resealable Bags/Boxes.
8. The ability to offer a Sale Table and free goodies every so often.
What's the catch?
Well there is one but, it isn't so bad. Since the vast majority of items are stocked in LA we will be bringing the items you order up to our office for us to box and ship to you. This time in transit will result in a delay in shipping your order out. The delay could be as short as 2 days or as long as 5 days (due to weekends). If you can deal with this delay then we are happy to take your order and hope you will be pleased with the new service!
Feel free to email or call with questions. CPG@... or (800) 637-6401 We will also talk more about this change in the June e-newsletter that will come out in just a couple of weeks.
We need your help to make this work! Please spread the word that the site minimum has gone away. If you blog, are part of a craft group or have paper crafting friends we would really appreciate any help you can give. As long as there is enough interest we are happy to process small orders.
