Hi all, does anybody know a good, reasonable paper supplier that has a good variety of product, but uses someone affordable for international postage? I ordered a $7.95 swatchbook from Paper Source, and had intended to order all of my paper stuff from them – for invites, programs, the lot. But I’ve just learned that even for my little swatchbook, the postage fee is over $80!!! This is nuts! I’m so disappointed, anyone got any ideas?

Could some one in the states buy it for you at Paper Source and then ship it to you? It might not be as much.
I had to buy my friends paper for her and then mail it to Hawaii because she couldn’t find paper she liked out there.

Shipping’s a bitch ain’t it? I just got my invitations sent over from the US and it cost me nearly $AUD50 just for shipping! That was a quarter of what I paid for the invites themselves! AND that’s if you can find a seller or company that actually ships outside of the US! I agree with Charmbracelet – if you know someone in the US it might be cheaper if they ship it to you… if not, perhaps trying looking closer to home or shop around online – some companies ship things cheaper than others.

Hey, thanks girls. I didn’t really want to put the mail hassle on anyone else. I did find LCI paper, who use regular USPS and shipping for samples worked out at a totally reasonable $7 or so. Crisis averted…. Flippin weddings, there’s always a nearly-crisis!!
