Yay!!! and Ney!

Yay for:

I placed my very first order with Papertrey Ink late Friday night and got my package today at noon! I am not only impressed with how quickly my order was shipped - but such fair prices and super quality paper - now I know why they say - once you try their papers - you will be back! Wow, great stuff! The 3 packages of cardstock are : Stampers Select White, Paper Basics Kraft and the Paper Basics Rustic (off white color with specks) I also got the Bakers Twine in Pure Poppy and New Leaf and also four lovely yards of Leaf Ribbon.  I am looking forward to crafting with my new papers, ribbons and twine. I will definitly be ordering from them again!

On another note.....a big NEY to Custom Crops. I placed an order with them for the Pink Scotch ATG on June 16. Yes, this was pre-order - but it should have originally shipped first week of July. I just got it on August 10th. That is a total of 56 days from order placement to delivery. I sorta feel like i never should have ordered it. Too much money and took forever to get here. Also it was mailed in a bubble envelope in which the corner was smashed in. I also got a few email "updates" claiming warehouse issues and adhesive issues? I wonder about that. This is not my first order with them - i think maybe my fourth? but the last before this also took very long to get. The web page states "orders ship in 3-5 business days". That being said along with the fact it was a pre-order - i figured I would have to wait a little extra for it to ship out, but 56 days? I am not sure how i feel about ordering from them again anytime soon. How do you girls feel about delayed shipping???

I seriously debated getting that pink ATG. One of the sites I just visited has it for $29.99 (there were 8 in stock at the time)....and shipping would have been a little over $7. Not a bad deal....but do I really need another ATG just cuz it's pink? Aaack.

I am with you! I had an order in through custom crops that had a back-ordered item and it also took forever--good I didn't need a new cricut cutting pad right away!
