Free Foamcore for You and Me

If you read my blog, you will know how excited I get about recycling. It's economical and helps save the environment. My latest thrill involves the arrival of several foamcore sheets last week, all offcuts that Voyt sourced from a Brisbane signwriter.

I can't believe how large these offcuts are at 120 x 60 cm each. It's the perfect material for forming our bolts of printed fabrics and so easy to cut!

This is Jess who did most of the cutting yesterday including for fabric orders and the formcore boards. She is a grade 10 student and will be with us all week for work experience.

Back to the foamcore, it is stronger than cardboard but still lightweight so will be excellent for shipping with our orders.


Rolling, rolling...

Ta-Da!

Our printed hemp/organic cottons are now perfectly stacked. I am slowly getting organised. Joy.

Now for the good news, if you would like some foamcore for art projects, etc; we have plenty of it. It's quite expensive to buy in art stores but we are happy to give it away in the interest of saving it from going to landfill.

You will have to arrange to pick it up from our Capalaba studio. Please contact me if you are interested.

I use foamcore for my fabric too - much lighter to post and easier to cut. Good for you scoring some for nix (and sharing - sharing is nice)!

That's great recycling - and foamcore is expensive.

Doesn't it all look wonderful stacked so neatly? You must be delighted - well done for seizing the opportunity to recycle and keep that stuff out of the landfill!
