Many of you shared your excitement for the BIG news that we shared in February regarding the CHA Craft SuperShow that Papertrey will be attending in the end of July!  I mean, who wouldn't be thrilled at experiencing history with Papertrey's first retail venue!

CHA has now released details regarding the event and I thought I would pass them along to you! 

For current up to date information about this event you can go HERE, to the CHA SuperShow webpage.


Friday, July 31st 10:00am-6:00pm
Saturday, August 1st 9:00am-5:00pm


$14.00 2-day pass
$10.00 1-day pass
Children under 10 – FREE

You can go HERE to purchase tickets.

And it looks like they have some discount opportunities HERE.


There will be a few craft celebrities on hand including Mary Engelbreit and Donna Dewberry, not to mention our very own Debbie Olson & Michelle Wooderson as well!

Several vendors will be conducting classes that you can read about HERE.  We will be holding FREE make & take instruction at our booth, that includes two different projects per day!  So be sure to stop by Papertrey both days of the show so you can go home with all four projects!!!

Also, don't forget that we will be offering a limited edition, CHA show only stamp set available to
show attendees!  This unreleased stamp set will have a retail value of
$15 and any customer with a total purchase of $100 or more during the
show will receive this CHA exclusive set for FREE!  This stamp set will
not be available for sale before or after the show!  Now, how's that
for exciting!!!

CHA and Par Avion, the official travel provider of CHA shows, have
arranged travel and lodging discounts for the 2009 CHA Craft SuperShow

We hope to see you there!

    Hi Nichole,
    Is CHA open to the public or for vendors only? I am new to the world of stamping (got my first clear stamp set with PTI!). Thank you.

    CHA has put together this new special show for consumers (general public) that takes place during the two days after their regular (non-public) show. So anyone can attend!!! πŸ™‚

    I am planning to attend CHA, as I live just north of Orlando. I am looking forward to meeting you, Nichole, as well as Debbie Olson and Michelle. I visit their blogs daily, and I admire their work so very much. Will we be able to purchase all PTI projects and take them with us at that time, or will PTI ship them to us?

    Debbie S says:

    To amend above question, I meant to ask if we will be able to purchase PTI “products”, and receive them at the CHA show?

    Thank you.

    The intent of this new Craft SuperShow portion of the event is to sell directly to the general public/consumer. Papertrey will have a booth there to do just that! We will have over 50 of our most popular stamp sets and all of our color collection items, including cardstocks, inks, ribbons & buttons. You can choose to purchase the items there and take them home with you or you can have them shipped from our warehouse directly to your home so they will be waiting when you get back. Either type of purchase (as long as it totals $100 or more) will qualify for the FREE exclusive CHA stamp set we will be revealing. Hope to see you there! πŸ™‚

    Nichole, Will you have new sets coming out for CHA? Ones we have not seen?
    I can’t wait to meet you, Debbie, and Michelle!

    To ammend the above question…new sets other than the CHA exclusive set? Thanks!

    We will just be carrying previously released sets for sale! Nothing new other than the FREE CHA exclusive, I’m afraid!

    I am so excited about attending. Will you be able to purchase the limited edition CHA stamp set if you don’t reach the $100 in purchases (yeah right!), or if you just want to purchase one as a gift for someone else? Also, will the stamp sets purchased at the show count towards earning the anniversary stamp set?

    Unfortunately, the limited edition CHA stamp set will not be available for purchase, just available as a free gift for those who reach the $100 purchase mark. Therefore they will not be available for purchase as gifts either.

    Any stamp sets purchased at CHA will not count towards the anniversary set, since they will be qualifying your for the free exclusive CHA stamp set instead. I hope that clarifies everything! Hope to see you there!!!

    i have spoken with cha organizers and they have informed me that most of the manufacturers who will be at the cha show for the trade only will not be selling directly to the consumer at the consumer show. i think it’s important that people understand this as they may be disappointed to find manufacturers at the show demoing their products but not selling directly. unfortunately this has been a misconception that has not been fully explained. individual retail stores and/or companies will be there selling products. will your company be selling to the trade (i.e. to the retailers)at the cha show prior to the consumer show?

    That is correct. There are two aspects to the overall CHA event. The first few days are for the normal retail/wholesale market, where the SuperShow that takes place the last two days is specifically geared towards the consumer. I believe that the information I provided doesn’t elude to anything other than that, but I apologize if you felt it was misleading. Our company does not sell wholesale, so the SuperShow portion, which is what we are promoting, will be the only aspect we are particpating in. Our products will be for sale to consumers during these two days and we are very much looking forward to the direct interaction we will be having with customers, new and old.

    I have the same efillink cis system and re-fillable cartridges and am plaqued by the red-X problems. Mine won’t clear this time either. Something is wrong. I’m calling Ronnie tonight. He indicates there are known chip problems, and tank fitment issues in the carriage.

    I look forward to your reviews. I’m sitting on the fence until i see get a comparison of these systems to install on my R1900.
