It’s not about sending $$ overseas. You can read other posts here or articles about AliExpress/Alibaba if interested, but the bottom line is they steal the art and designs from artists, designers and companies that own it. When we buy from them we buy stolen goods, intentionally or not. The end result is that small business owners and artists suffer. Some go out of business or have to stop producing a line. BTW, it’s not just happening in the paper craft industry. Ali has their claws in many fields.

There are some companies that sell great stamps and dies in expensively, too, if SU designs aren’t the only ones that interest you.

Just my take.
