Shop Smarter -- Is It Really a Bargain? Some Scrapbooking and Papercrafting Products Do Have A Shelf Life!!!

We’ve had a lot of customers balk at the idea of using rub-ons because they had already tried them and it was a disaster. When asked the brand or where they purchased the items, they always reply “from the dollar store or one of the big box stores.” Well, you truly get what you pay for. When you purchase a product, you have to ask yourself: WHY is this item so cheap? Is it because they really are inexpensive to manufacture and that huge company is passing on the savings to me? Or are the items low-priced because they are discontinued or old stock closeouts the manufacturer unloaded to make way for new? And its not just rub-ons, so think twice when you pick up an item that appears to be a bargain – chances are, it could be more of a robbery. Your faith in the product might be stolen.

When you’re out shopping for your papercrafting products, consider how much you’re really paying. Purchasing lower-priced products at a discount outlet might save you a few dollars up front, but it could easily cost you more before the project is complete. It could cost more money to purchase a replacement item from a reputable scrapbook store, or worse, it could ruin your layout or frustrate you into never using a really fantastic product or technique.

We work very hard here at Scrappersaurus to always bring you the highest quality items, of the freshest stock available to us. We never purchase readily consumable clearance items from our manufacturers, simply because we do not want to run the risk of the items not working properly.

We stand behind all our products, and if ever you have a problem with ANYthing you purchase from us, let us know and we’ll make it right.

Until next time, happy scrapping!
