I’ve gotten a lot of questions over the past few months about Papertrey Ink. If you read my blog or watch my videos (hopefully both!), you know that I love the things that Papertrey Ink releases and love to share what I buy and how I use it all. The problem is, since there are so many pretty things to choose from, a lot of people get lost when trying to figure out what to order for their first order. I’ve put together a video and PDF guide for you and anyone else who is looking to purchase from PTI. I talk about a ton of things in the video, including products, why I like them, cardstock comparisons and even answering questions asked by my bloggy friends. So watch the video first and then continue reading this post. :)
Here’s the PDF that I mention several times on the video. I’m embedding it below, but in case that doesn’t show up in your browser or reader, here’s the link to the document.
Here’s the mock first order that I put together with a price break-down as well so you can see how I made the system work:
P: Cardstock Sampler, Aqua Mist, Simply Chartreuse, Spring Moss and Harvest Gold Cardstock – $21
E: Aqua Mist and Simply Chartreuse satin ribbon, Aqua Mist and Spring Moss buttons, rustic button twine and 1/4” silk ribbon – $22
S: Background Basics : Newsprint, Mat Stack 4 Collection, Fillable Frames #1, Tag-its #1 and Signature Series: Butterfly – $54
D: Mat Stack 4, Signature Series: Butterfly and Edgers #1 – $22
Total: $119 for a full sampling of Papertrey Ink Products
So I hope this helps you out a lot! I answer a ton of questions in the video, so make sure to watch that! If you have further questions, please post them in the comments here and I will reply back with the answer (to the best of my abilities) so that others can see the question and answer. Chances are that if you are wondering about something, lots others are wondering the same thing too!
One more thing. Papertrey Ink’s April release happens at midnight EST tomorrow night (the night of the 14th going into the morning of the 15th). They are usually very good about having everything in stock the day of release, so if you’re planning on making an order, the best time is today or tomorrow (this is also their busiest time of the month). At midnight when the new products are released, a few products are apt to sell out and not be restocked for a couple weeks. So if you really want some basics, make an order before release and then go back for more of the release stuff when it’s release time. This will save you many headaches! You get free shipping on an order of $60 or more. Shop away!
Looking forward to see your hauls of PTI and the amazing things you do with them. Don’t be afraid to just jump in and have fun. See you tomorrow with another fun creation. :)
