  • Argos card blanks

    Has anyone ever used them? Are they any good? Decent quality or should I not bother?

    no idea, but maybe you should get some and let us all know,if no one has tried them. If no good, let the kids use the to muck about with.

      Nope never used them either. That's the problem with Argos - its difficult to fondle the product before purchase!

          sorry but i've never tried them. What make are they? does it give a gsm in the description? if it does i would say anything above 270gsm is a good weight for a card blank

            I've tried them, nothing wrong with them that I can tell, although I'm no card making expert!

              I tried answering this earlier when at work but dammed puter went daft (seems to be still wobbling from yesterday) so not impressed

              Anyway, I nearly got some of the Christmassy ones at Christmas but didn't in the end as The Range had some good offers on and I also like to fondle before I buy!!

              How much are they? If you think they'd be ok go for it or you can let the girls dabble! Or, if they are a little naff, you can always double them up or add another layer of card on the front and back thus creating a panel effect (as seen on a recent 'thing' of mine hehehehe!) and making it more sturdy.

              But, if you choose and do decide to go with Argos, let us know - product review please!!!!

                  I thought they were nasty, thin, flimsy and not possible to put anything 3d on the front as they fall over.
                  I came..I saw..I shopped

                    Re card blanks, I would have to say that at the mo I use Liz's crafts and the Range.
