Great deal on envelopes today... yeah!

Today I went to a place here in El Paso called XPedX... it was awesome. Last week when I went to the Kwik Kopy and the lady cut all the card inserts for me:

When I was there I asked about envelopes and the lady wrote down the address and phone number of this place XpedX... I need to go back and thank her for telling me about it.

When I walked in I seen a bunch of boxes of envelopes on a markdown table, but they were just a tad smaller than what I was looking for. We walked all around and seen some beautiful paper.. ahhh.. such a pretty Mahogany paper. Then we found a section with reams of paper marked down. I picked up one that was only $5.00 and while looking at the others a lady who worked there came over and I asked her about envelopes, etc.. she took me to the boxes of the envelopes.. in a section I missed.. ha ha.. and then I asked about the ones on the table. They were regularly $16.95 a box marked down to $6.95, the lady said I could have them for $5.00 each.. wowzers. I just have to cut my cards to be 4" x 5 1/4".. 1/4" smaller on both sides.. I can do that. I got six boxes for less than two boxes of the ones I went there for. I also got a box of embossed layers for $5.00 and a ream of really heavy card stock/cover for white card bases.. the lady took 15% off of it for military discount, it was the only regularly priced item I had:

then............. the lady was putting the boxes of envelopes and ream of paper into a box.. she pulled a whole bunch of assorted card stock/cover from under the counter and put a whole bunch in my box.. like 5-6" thick of stuff.. I was overwhelmed by her generosity.

I think that the brown paper that was in the bunch she gave me was the beautiful brown I seen when walking the store... I pulled out some and made a card and cut everything to make some more.. I'll post them next.

thanks for looking ~

have a great airborne day!
God Bless All Our Military.. each and every one of them

You did good Pam! I think we have an xpedex. I remember seeing it in the phone book. I guess I will have another look. Your pumpkin cards are pretty cute.

Drooling! I'll have to check St. Louis for Xpedx. I know our print shop at work has bought paper from them before.
