I have placed and received many orders through scrapbook.com and have never had the need to use expedited shipping as the turn-around is surprisingly efficient and fast using the standard method. The items come protectively packaged by them in cello bags to keep small items together and to keep papers flat and in perfect condition upon arrival. Furthermore, the number of brands, the quality of the products, and the demos keep me coming back to this site more times than I should, lol! Scrapbook.com has become my "go-to" online source for the brands I love at a reasonable price. Oh BTW, they are totally awesome in notification by email when an item is back in stock when you click the indicator telling them to do so. The new line of Dark Red stamps sold out quickly, after a very short time, I have acquired all the ones I have been interested in buying.
I am in no way, except a loyal satisfied customer, associated with Scrapbook.com...just in case it is a tad obvious I LOVE this site!
