I’ve been looking at some of my favourite sites to see if there are any special offers on, and what the situation is with despatch due to Covid 19.
A lot of ScanNCutters use the fabulous greyboard from Funky Pen for their 3D projects.
From their website:
“Funkypen.co.uk is still accepting orders as we are an online only retailer but due to the outbreak of COVID-19 and government restrictions, we are running at reduced capacity. Stock levels and availability of products may be reduced due to the supply chain issues and closures, especially as time passes. We will try to keep our website updated and of course contact you if your order if affected. We also ask that you allow a little longer for your order to arrive”
MDP Supplies – updated Tuesday – 02/06/20
Trade Counters: All trade counters are closed until 15th June 2020 due to the necessary restrictions. Therefore no Collection Orders will currently be processed but you can place an online order for delivery.
We are still despatching online orders as we have implemented changes to staff procedures at our warehouses to ensure social distancing of staff.
These changes, combined with receiving a high volume of orders, means that we have had to temporarily remove our guaranteed next day delivery options. Our teams have been working incredibly hard and have been working overtime to meet the demand. All orders are being picked and packed as quickly as possible but please allow 2-3 working days for delivery.
“As a small family business, we are trying our best to continue to operate as near as normal to ensure our customers are not impacted. Diane (mum) and Garry (dad) are the only two people based in the office processing orders and keeping the shelves stocked. Currently, we are managing to dispatch orders received by 12pm the same day (unless orders contain patterns that can have a 2 working day dispatch time.)
Crafty Cutter offers – they have a few items in their sale section and their £5 and under section.
