  • Where Can I Get Flat self-adhesive 2" letters

    A lovely lady has just been in the shop who makes something similar to personalised plaques. She's looking for flat self-adhesive letters in a standard font (they are designed for children learning how to spell their names) with the capitals measuring approx 2" high and the small case letters in proportion. They can be plastic, card, paper or anything else that's pretty much flat - the chipboards I have are too thick.

    She's popping back in a few weeks and I told her that if they exist anywhere then one of you lot would know...so the challenge is on!

      I have seen thin cardboard letters in pretty colours in Tesco, but I dont think they were self-adhesive.

      I imagine what she needs is either a die-cutting machine with alphabet ( The making memories slice looks good, Im planning to get one when Im in America in a couple of weeks time!) OR someone with a die-cutting machine who can supply her. That way she can have exactly the colours etc she wants, and they will be self-adhesive if they are cut from somthing self-adhesive. I know my local craft shop (which has sadly closed) used to die-cut to order, so it is definitely worth asking around.

          I have the round-a-bout Sizzix alphabet die set which cuts upper and lower case and also numbers and I can cut them in what ever you need! Not sure about the self adhesive bit - do you mean you are able to reposition them once they have been used?

            Have you tried b&Q? I know they do adhesive numbers for wheelie bins etc, not sure about letters though.
            Or can't you buy some adhesive paper, print them out and cut them? Or maybe someone with a die cutter and alphabet set could cut you some out???

              Don't forget you'll need a good step down transformer if you do this - they're not allowed to sell the 220v version in the US (something to do with an exclusive European distribution deal with somebody.

              It's worth getting all the bits and pieces there - especially the cartridges - but it might be better to get your machine here, otherwise you won't have a valid warranty if anything goes wrong.

                Ooh I didnt think about that, I knew I would need an adaptor, is a transformer separate or is that what an adaptor does? I cant get one here, they have sold out nearly everywhere and the places that do have them have hiked the prices up ridiculously!!!!!
