Wedding cards by default should be affordable. However, the increasing popularity of this hobby and the rising number of craft enthusiasts all over the world gives many craft stores the chance to make a lot of money out of this so-called fad. They are now charging their customers for the amount of effort that they apparently poured in as they search and gather all of these awesome materials under one roof. For many craft stores, everything has a price, and that includes the kind of convenience that these specialty stores bring.
Sadly though, some people failed to see through the cunning intentions of these craft stores. Hobbyists and craft enthusiasts are more or less cloudedÂ and would not realize the idea that the materials that they are buying are actually sold twice or even thrice its normal price. The trick of the craft stores lies on the fact that they are repackaging each product so that each of which bears the name of their store. This would leave its customers with no point for price comparison since there are no other brands sold in that particular craft store. Plus, you would be overshadowed with amusement that finally, after all those years and tiring hunt, you finally found this one thing that you have been looking for.
This should not be the case for all of us. We should enjoy our respective hobbies or make our respective projects without anyone taking advantage of us. Making wedding cards, for instance, should be done without getting a piece of accessory that is more expensive rather than its normal price. We make wedding cards because we are short on cash and would still want to give something that is equally thoughtful and important. We wouldn’t want to end up spending as much money as buying a gift itself in a wedding card, right?
Going to the craft store to buy ornaments for your wedding card would actually defeat the purpose of you trying to save money on your gift through a wedding card, you have to go the extra mile and search for the items that you will be needing to complete your card. The best places to go to in lieu of your favorite craft store are your good old fabric store. Most craft items are also found at the fabric store. The cloth, buttons and other accessories could be bought there for a lower price as compared to the craft store. In the fabric store, you could buy as many buttons and other figures as you want.
