A Passion for Papertrey in the UK

Passion for papertrey

Two very dear & dedicated customers, Kate & Steph, recently created an entire blog dedicated to Papertrey fans in the UK & the rest of Europe called A Passion for Papertrey.  It is a wonderful testimony to all of our wonderful customers abroad.  They put a lot of time into the design of the site and update it regularly with Papertrey projects and other chit chat. 

They even have monthly challenges with Papertrey Prizes!

There's also help available for finding someone to share orders with to save on the cost of shipping!

I think any of you that happen to live on that side of the ocean will enjoy the close-knit camaraderie found there! I'm truly honored that Kate & Steph invest so much of their time into the upkeep of the site!  It is truly destined to become an invaluable resource for our foreign friends!

    We have pretty much the same thing here in Canada! 🙂

    We just posted the Loonie Stampers Challenge this morning where we take turns posting PTI color challenges! You might even recognize some of the ladies as some of us have won GSS or honorable mentions!

    Part of our group is out west and they order together and 2 of us are in Ontario and we have a little PTI group and we all order together, ok maybe we push PTI on our friends… tee hee! We have another newbie for next months order!

    Nicole…..yes, this is a great site to have and we are thankful it is there. I am going to ask through this comment facility if you would please consider opening a branch of Papertrey in the United Kingdom. You certainly have dedicated followers here and I would be grateful if you would seriously consider this. I’m sure your fans over here would agree wholeheartedly with this request! The International Shipping cost is prohibitive to a lot of us who would love to order every month. I await with interest hearing from you.

    I am afraid we will not be opening any branches in the UK anytime in the near future. The costs involved in doing something like that along with finding trustworthy individuals to run the facility while upholding our standards would certainly be difficult. Perhaps in a projected forecast of five+ years something along those lines may come into play, we’ll just have to see! Thanks for your suggestion and we certainly appreciate your interest!

    I would like to toot the trumpet for the most wonderful ladies Kate & Steph. Who now I call friends since we have all been brought together through your amazing company and creativity.

    I know they work so hard and have introduced many, many people here in the UK to your wonderful products. I will also let you into a secret, If it wasn’t for the distance I would give up my addiction to Stampin Up and convert to the Papertry side, but shh it’s a secret ..

    I too have been following Kate & Steph’s blog and am thrilled that they’ve had this very worthy mention.

    I organise group PTI orders myself and it’s a lot of effort but well worth it and very rewarding, but to dedicate a blog to Papertrey and especially to keep it updated frequently with new posts, inspiration from the latest sets, and challenges with fantastic blog candy – that’s another level completely and a huge investment of time, dedication and money. Well done girls!

    Keep considering the UK branch, Nichole! We’re still interested…. At the very least, someone you trust to be a stockist – you can be VERY selective (check out The Craft Barn in Lingfield, they’d be my suggestion!) but it would certainly be a worthwhile venture because you would increase your sales tremendously….
