Ugh, I just typed a whole review & I lost it when I went to save it so here it goes … AGAIN!! (WARNING pic heavy)
A few weeks back I posted looking for reviews on a Canadian paper company & no one had feedback for me so after thinking about it & talking it over with MrN I decided to order them without any feedback (from the Hive or elsewhere) and let me tell you Bee’s, I am SO glad I did!!!
I ordered from http://www.papercircle.ca/ they carry pocket folds, envelopes, japanese paper, pre-cut cardstock and more.
I ordered 60 Metallic Red A7 Envelopes (will fit a 5″ X 7″ invitation), they are $0.40 each, my total with shipping was $37.29
I love them!! The shimmer is perfect, it’s hard to tell based on a website picture if they’ll be too shimmery (is that a word, shimmery?? LoL) but they are perfect!!
(note my ring, finally my Grandmothers ring is sized & I love showing it off)
The shimmer is PERFECT for my shimmer black cardstock that I’ll be using to mount my white invitation on (I don’t have a picture of the black cardstock yet, it’s in my car currently after my recent trip to Michael’s)
I’m so excited to make my invitations now, eventhough I have hours of cutting (did you know you can get 4 pieces of 5X7 from 1 square of 12X12 cardstock??) and then assembling then my favourite part … sealing them, we bought a wax seal (letter N) and GOLD sparkle glue for it!! (our colours are red, black & gold to honour MrN’s favourite hockey team, the Ottawa Senators)
If I wasn’t already thrilled with my envelopes (MrN said he only remembers me being this excited 1 other time, not when he proposed but when Evil Dick returned to Big Brother last season) I found this tucked in the package:
HOW SWEET IS THAT!!!
Vicki sent me 2 emails after my order, 1 to let me know that they’d be shipping the invitations out on Tuesday (I ordered them just before Easter and Canada Post is closed on Easter Monday) and then a follow up email when she had shipped the envelopes, along with my tracking number.
The shipping was fast, the envelopes were packed well (to avoid bending corners) and they are a good weight.
I’m so happy I decided to take the “plunge” and order from a company that I wasn’t sure about and I wanted to let all the other Canadian Bee’s know there is an alternate option to VistaPrint (I’ve heard reviews that are 50/50).
