Paper Punches - Good Deal and Costco

Paper Punches - Good Deal and Costco

Post by Hebee Jeebe » Tue, 11 Apr 2006 15:12:10



Hi,

I was at my local Costco (Santa Rosa, CA) today and came across a pack of 40
difference paper punches (small ones) for $20 with case. I grabbed one and
have to say they are pretty nice. If you need a good assortment of punches
and don't want to spend $4 or more for each this could be a good way to go.
I don't know if all Costco's have them, but it might be worth a check if
your need them.

Included was a boy and girl, shamrock, butterfly, tulip, lizard, heart, snow
flake, Christmas tree, chili pepper, flower, and much more.

Thanks for the information.  I don't have a costco membership but a BJs
membership and occassionally you can truly find great crafting deals.

I bought a pack of Kodak photo paper (8.5x11) for $9.00 which the pack
had over a 1,000 pages in it.  It lasted me about 9 months.

Yah, I was surprised. I would never have went to Costco looking for paper
punches. It is just too much trouble with parking and everything. But, since
I was there is was kind of like a big thank you for the gods. So of course I
snatched it up.

Sounds good but how well do they punch.  The last time I bought a bargain
punch which was NIP it was a dull as a butter knife.

Well, I don't have a lot of experience with paper punches. But, they work
and the edges seem ok to me. But, then they could be as dull as a butter
knife and I wouldn't know it. :)

You'd know it Robert.  When you punch something it would come out raggedy
looking.  I bought a snowflake punch years ago and instead of a crisp clean
snowflake cut it had rough edges.  I exchanged it and the 2nd was fine.

Sounds like a great deal...especially if they punch good.  I've had
some that you almost have to tear to get the paper back out of the
punch.  I think there's a  Costco in Houston...I'll have to check it
out.  THanks.

I found the in the isle with the paper pads and glue sticks.

They are from Cutting Edge and they are called the Paper Punch set. Besides
the 40 punches they come in a nice case as well.

I just checked the Costco we site. I searched for Paper Punch and Cutting
Edge and nothing came up. Though they did have some scrapbook kit like
things.

It just kind of made my day. I was kind of down as I had been cleaning out
my dads room most of the day (he passed away in 2003) and so it was just a
really nice surprise that screamed out at me to buy them. So I took them
home. Now I have to feed them lots of paper. Pets are so demanding. And, the
lizard keeps giving me the evil eye. I don't know what's up with that! :)

I saw them and I was soooo tempted to buy the box! But I told myself I
didn't need that many specific 'shapes' like the dinosaur etc. Maybe
next time we go :P (we go to costco every couple of months to stock up
on cans and stuff...) They also have boxes of *** stamps in
different themes - DH wanted to buy me one of them but I said I didn't
really 'need' them right then! Really it was because I couldn't decide
which box to get!

That's when you get them all! ;)

My Costco didn't have the stamps. Probably a good thing.
