Supplies Round-Up

Tuesday, November 03, 2009

The holidays will be here very, very soon. How do I know for sure? Because Target already has it's ornaments & sparkly accoutrement up. Nothing like that to give you a kick in the pants.
One thing I did learn from last year's holiday shopping frenzy is that it's wise to stock up ahead of time (like, now!) on supplies & such so you're not caught at the very last moment needing that oh-so-special ribbon, only to find it's actually on back order.

Thought I'd share my supply sources (and some I'd like to try!):

Ribbon & Tissue Paper- Nashville Wraps they often have specials once you're on their mailing list- I found it easy to order & very quick shipping.

Business Cards: GotPrint I've used them a few times & really love my cards. They're so cute & also use them as my hang tags. I did try other companies before & well, what can I say these just seem better- and very budget friendly!

Notions: Fabric Depot Not only do they have mega sales on fabric (35% off anything!) they also give wholesale pricing for many items bought in bulk (i.e full box of thread)....and you don't even have to be a business owner! I've heard some other major fabric stores do this too..check in your area- it pays off!

Zippers: ZipIt Without a doubt, one of my all time favorite Etsy supply shops. Lightning fast shipping & oh-so-friendly & helpful. Love, love, love it!

Mailing Supplies- Royal Mailers Definitely great for buying in bulk. (hint: before ordering google "royal mailers coupon code" and usually one comes up for 10% off or something. works like a charm ;)

Prong Snaps- SnapSource Oh my, one of the best little companies ever. You can call & talk to someone right away. They ship fast & you can order in bulk for a discount.

Garment Labels- Distinctive Designs Read entire post on my labels here

Fabric- Fabricworm I buy fabric from tons of places & some directly from the company, but I must say I really love shopping at fabricworm- it's run by a woman who knows her stuff. She gets new fabric all the time & has excellent customer service. That's pretty much what I'm looking for. (ps. if you're on her mailing list or follow her blog you might also catch some sales)

Custom Labels/Tags by Whisker Graphics - I adore these! And want to try them soon :)

Custom Stickers: Pixel By Pixel This shop has tons of business (or personal!) products
Leave a comment & share your fabulous supply sources!
