Cost efficient scrapbooking supply; wholesale
As more and more people begin creating scrapbooks, there is not
shortage of places specializing in the various items that make
up scrapbook supply. Wholesale distributors are found easily,
especially as the internet begins catering to the crafster in
each person. But, is scrapbooking supply wholesale distribution
and pricing really worth it?
Pros to Scrapbooking Supply Wholesale Purchases
The positive side of scrapbooking supply wholesale purchases
is the discount you immediately receive. Like anything else bought
wholesale or in bulk, some of the middle man costs and such are
defrayed. Wholesale distribution is about quantity, and the more
you buy the better.
Basic supplies are probably best purchased through some sort
of scrapbooking supply wholesale distributor. A serious scrapbooker
will go through lots of pens, cardstock, glue, tape, adhesive,
scissors, and blank pages. If you can buy these things through
a wholesale distributor, you will save money in the long run,
even if the purchase seems to cost a lot at first.
If you are planning a consistent look throughout your scrapbook,
this could be especially cost-effective for you. With the help
of a scrapbooking supply wholesale distributor, you can get identical
supplies that will help your scrapbook achieve a cohesive look.
Theme packs, such as for a wedding or new baby, are also sometimes
available through a wholesale distributor.
Cons to Scrapbooking Supply Wholesale Purchases
On the other side of every pro is a con, and that is especially
true with scrapbooking supply wholesale purchases. There is a
certain amount of creativity that runs deep within each person
who enjoys creating scrapbooks. A scrapbook is an expression of
individuality and uniqueness.
Consequently scrapbooking supply wholesale purchases are hard
to work into a creative person. If your goal is for each page
in your scrapbook to have a certain amount of individuality, then
wholesale purchases will probably not work for you. Even an over-arching
theme is hard to accomplish if you purchases things through wholesale.
It is much more difficult to find wholesale distributors that
offer things like variety packs.
While it may seem cost-effective at first, it will end up being
a waste of time and money if you do not end up using the supplies.
Even things you think you may use a lot, such as precut scenes
and dies, can be a waste of money if you are not careful.
The Ultimate reason for Scrapbooking Supply Wholesale Purchases
There is one great reason for scrapbooking supply wholesale purchases:
stickers and photo corners. Every person who has ever created
a scrapbook has gone through an inordinate amount of stickers.
Plants, animals, seashells, wedding bells, handprints
name it and a scrapbook creator has probably used them. Stickers,
however, can be expensive, so a wholesale purchase can save money.
And, since most stickers can be used in more than one situation,
you can keep them and use them in many different ways and situations.
Photo corners offer and alternative to pasting pictures directly
on to the page, and this is a great option if you think you may
want to use the pictures in another situation in the future. With
the advent of scanners, you may want to show someone your pictures
that cannot see the whole scrapbook. Therefore, a scrapbooking
supply wholesale purchase of photo corners would never be a waste
No matter what your scrapbook needs are, think carefully before
you go with a scrapbooking supply wholesale distributor. If you
decide to go with a distributor, here are a few places to look
for your supplies:
