I have discovered Cards and Pockets! But I can’t find any info on if when they ship across the border taxes and duties get tacked onto them?
Any canadian brides order from them and can enlighten me to whether there will be any extra fees?

shipping DOUBLES the price. it’s AWFUL. That’s why I ultimately decided against using them.
Instead I used a local supplier of http://www.envelopments.com/

@missjewels: I was going to but the shipping was insane. If you are in the grass is can give you thename of a store in Toronto that does bulk orders to get these products from cards and pockets at a discounted rate.

It wasn’t as bad as doubling for me. I think I spent about $200 and it was about $50 more, but it was a while ago, so I could be off.

Yeah, I searched my email and my numbers were about right. I think there was also an additional $10 duty charge that had to be paid when the package arrived.

@takemyhand, what is the store in Toronto?
@bebefly, does envelopments end up being cheaper? they still look expensive. although shipping is ridiculous on cards and pockets, i think it works out to being cheaper..
i’m still in the early stages of shoping around.. paper is soo expensive !!

I didn’t want to deal with duties, and taxes on top of the purchase price, so I went through a Canadian site: Paper Garden
I can’t say enough good things about the owner/operator, Gina. She runs the business with her husband out of their house, which happens to be only 5 minutes from my teeny hometown! To save me from shipping charges, she even allowed my Maid/Matron of Honor to go pick up my items for me, which was truly amazing of her. I highly recommend their services!

@atao: I went with PaperCircle. They are a Canadian company. I was very happy with the quality of the products and the service as well.

@takemyhand: don’t know if you’re still on the Bee – but if you could share the name of the place in the GTA that gets pocket folds it would be amazing!
