Our Sources : ULINE

Posted by

While we’re on the subject of organizing this month, I wanted to share one of our favourite sources for helping us stay neat and orderly:  ULINE.  A popular website for shipping supplies, they carry a wide range of products that are not only perfect for keeping our craft materials in order, but are great for using in our crafts too.


Take the paper rolls, for instance.  They come in many different lengths and can be used as table covers, banners, and even gift wrap.  (The paper cutter makes a handy table accessory too.)


I'm partial to the grey bogus paper and the kraft paper is always a classic.


The mobile shelving carts are essential for transporting materials to and from the photo studio, act as moveable workshelves, and may also have a hand in moving LOADS of pumpkins from Marcie’s car to the office every fall.


When I first walked into the crafts studio years ago I was mesmerized by the bins of supplies:  beads, buttons, stamps, ribbon (organized by colour!), yarn, brushes, and paint.


Everything was stacked categorically and it was just so impressive.


Recently I was in a paper shop that had a wall of mailing tubes laying horizontally to store delicate tissue paper sheets as well as longer items like rulers and dowels, which I thought was pretty genius.

There's just something about that ULINE catalog that always makes me happy.
