I found shipping costs from SU to be outrageously high and take 10-14 days to arrive.

I have recently found other stamping items online through non-SU sites that are decently priced, made in the US and offer great incentives to purchase the product with no requirement to buy in the future. There also doesn't seem to be continual changes in colors either.
I do agree that SU paper is among the best around. I just hate getting rid of it when they decide it's not one of their colors anymore.
Many people on this thread have spoken of "GinaK", so I will be looking at that site as well.
Thanks Splitcoast for having this forum.
I have been a "demo" for Stampin'Up! multiple times. Why did I put that in quotes? Because what it translates to is: SU! is having one of their fabulous "sign up" offers where you get a lot of product for not a lot of $$. I then get whatever I "need" until I fail to meet the minimums for a couple of quarters (because I am my only customer) and let them drop me as a demo. I've probably done this three or four times over the years. I knew (and the demo I was signing up under knew) that it was a short-term commitment, at best. I had ZERO illusions on my ability to build a customer base (ditto on the desire to do so), and there's only so much I'm willing to spend myself, so it was inevitable. I'm much happier having a demo that I throw an order at every rare once in a while because I "need" something. I try to make it worth the shipping, at least...
