Hi Mikailani

I am in the same situation as you are!

I love the silk box invites and they are a must

have for our 08.08.09 wedding. If you have yet

to make a purchase, try ebay there is a seller

by the name of SiamTrader that sell the boxes

for much less than papersource.

Also, I am thinking about making my own. I know

it’s going to be a challenge though! Let me know

If you’ve found yours yet.

Hi ladies, as a suggestion, talk to a stationer. You might be able to make some deals with them if you order invites through them. Thai silk boxes are expensive and a luxury so be prepared to spend a little. Good luck!

<p style=”font: normal normal normal 12px/normal Helvetica; margin: 0px”>The cheapest ones I’ve found are advertised here on WeddingBee, and I’m sure you’ve seen it from Googling. <p style=”font: normal normal normal 12px/normal Helvetica; margin: 0px”>http://www.thaisilkbox.com <p style=”font: normal normal normal 12px/normal Helvetica; margin: 0px”>Depending on which ones you get, they are $8.50, compared to $25 I’ve seen every where else. My fiance, decided that even $8.50 was too much and decided that we can make it ourselves. He has experience in book binding and building things in general, so he built a prototype that very night. Even with the crazy labor and months it will take slaving over, I’m glad he gave into my idea! <p style=”font: normal normal normal 12px/normal Helvetica; min-height: 14px; margin: 0px”>  <p style=”font: normal normal normal 12px/normal Helvetica; margin: 0px”>We are buying our supplies from talasonline.com. We are using Asahi japanese bookcloth and davey board.

Be careful about those thai silk box, make sure that you are getting 100% silk. If it didn’t say 100% silk, it is not 100% silk. It can be claimed “silk”, which is actually a polyester. Before I did an invitation for my client, I bought a sample from a supplier who claimed that it was a silk box. When I got the sample, it was absolutely disappointed. The structure of the box is thin, glue starts to appear and of course, the material is not silk. It is polyester. The supplier thinks she can fool me. I know better than that. Then, i did some digging around and came across Suburban Silk, http://www.suburbansilk.com. I talked to them and found out that they are the one who made boxes for many celebrities and high end clients, which give me some credibility. Well..talk is cheap. So, I decided to buy a start-up kit. Quality is amazing. Structure of the box is exceptional. I showed both samples (“silk” and from Suburban Silk) to my clients. They of course picked the one from Suburban Silk, even though the price is more expensive. It is not expensive when the quality is exceptional and a peace of mind I receive working with them. Their customer service and commitment are far superior. The greatest thing is that Suburban Silk is in the U.S., who I can call if i have questions or claim if there is an issue with the boxes I ordered. All the calls I make are to place orders and thank them for making my life a lot easier. They are so reliable and trustworthy. Hope this helps…good luck!

… it seems like most of these posts would be better suited to the Wedding Bee Pro boards, ladies 🙂

I was wondering if you received your oder yet?

If so, how long did it take for them to arrive?

What kind of import tax did you pay?

Any suggestions as to how to work with customs?

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME!
