Cutting out the middle man...

Recently, I discovered some very inexpensive cutting dies for cardmaking on Amazon. I did some research and found that they are shipped directly from China.
I was hesitant because of the price but decided to order one and check out the quality:

When it arrived, I was very pleased with the quality and it cut beautifully. It was very comparable to the high-priced brand dies I have. Can you believe the price includes shipping!
The only drawback is how long it takes to get here from China (on a sloooow boat) lol. Four or five weeks......but heck, I'm not in any hurry and at these prices, I can buy several.
Next, I ordered this one that I had seen selling name brand on Amazon for $14.36.
Again it cuts well! these are sturdy, metal dies...and the direct cost for this one - $3.54.

 The package is only a vinyl envelope which concerned me at first but I have purchased many, many more and nothing has come damaged.

So if your not in a hurry for great dies and stamps this is the way to go!
Any questions?

  1. These are beautiful! I'm very interested, where do I find out more information?

    1. Roz~ just go to Amazon and type "metal dies from china" in search. I probably have 20 or 25 now. Please let me know if this helps.

  2. Thank you Suzy, I found them. WOW, cutting out the middle man is fantastic. I love dies, but I don't always have the cash to fund my habit. Glad you shared your experience. I'll be placing an order.

    1. Good!! On Amazon, If you click on a die.. and then click on the the company that is selling it.. you can see all the dies they sell. And sometimes you we find the same die from different companies @ different prices.So I keep a list of the prices and order from the cheapest one for that certain die.Any other questions, just ask!!

  3. Looking for even better prices you can shop at or same slow boat, probably the same exact dies but even better prices.

    1. Thanks for the info,Janet! I have only bought from Amazon so far because they were so good at dealing with any problems I might have. Are and pretty secure?


Thank you for your comment!
