Are you actually in Vancouver?  I buy stuff online and then have it shipped to Blaine and then just pop across and grab it.  There’s various shipping/receiving companies that usually charge about $2.50 per package.  Lots of companies have free/cheap shipping within the continental US so it works. 

I ordered my stuff from papersource, but they don’t have free shipping most of the time.  But I ordered enough that it was still worth it.

Hey! Just thought I’d add that Paper Circle isn’t too bad when it comes to shipping costs. they’re Canadian, located in BC I think.


Check out their FAQ page for shipping costs.

If you’re sending to Blaine we use The Letter Carrier. You save so much money that way on shipping and it’s pretty convenient. Just need to register your info ahead of time.

Essential Packaging has a website http://www.essentialpackaging.com with a lot of their products. It’s definitely an option we are considering as well although Cloverdale is a little bit far for us…

Where are you guys getting your stuff printed? So far we are going to try diy and screen print our own invitations (my fiance is really good at that kind of thing) but just in case it somehow goes wrong, I wouldn’t mind a backup… I wish letterpress wasn’t so expensive!

I just wanted to follow-up and say that we ended up buying our cardstock online straight from the source! The store Essential Packaging uses a brand called Envelopments and their website http://www.envelopments.com is really easy to navigate plus the prices are slightly better. We ended up ordering from the site and shipping across the border to save on s/h fees. We also did it this way to save on time as Essential Packaging orders for this brand are almost always special order and they quoted me 4-5 weeks for arrival and we didn’t have that much time to spare!
