Soooo another project I managed to take on just weeks before Christmas was the ordering of 7,500 blanck 4×4 square chipboard coasters. I actually saw some great projects made with these so I went to the company’s website in Ontario and found out that you could order them in cases of 2,500…well what was I going to do with that many coasters? so I posted to my upline’s Yahoo Group…all Stampin’ Up! demo’s in the Calgary area and all of a sudden within a couple of days I had 28 people sign up and 7,500 coasters SOLD…a huge undertaking…all I wanted was to split the shipping as shipping runs around $29 per box…I thought maybe 10 people would sign up! I didn’t know there was such a huge demand for coasters…crazy stampers / scrapbooker’s! always looking for something to alter. The coasters arrived today via UPS…only took 3 days to arrive…3 boxes each with 2,500 coasters in them packaged in packages of 100 thank goodness…makes distributing easier. Each box weighs between 35-40 lbs. I have 5 pick up points around the city…thank you to the ladies that volunteered.

    Could you please tell me the name of the company that you ordered the coasters from? My upline is looking to purchase some of these to do a project for her group.

    Thanks,
