I know this has been discussed before but with Canadians finally getting their 'forges, I thought it’d be a good time to review things. So Canadians, where have you been buying your materials?
I know of Trotec’s site: www.engraving-supplies.ca
Since it’s been discussed before, it’s helpful to link to the other threads you’ve read so that we know what’s come before and don’t spend time rehashing stuff. That’s why we have the forum, to prevent duplicate effort
I know Glowforge isnt shipping internationally yet but some Canadians have their machines ready. For those that don’t know where they are going to get materials I would take a good look at
engraving-supplies.ca. They off a ton of awesome materials.
An account is required but a quick look shows they are cheaper than proofgrade stuff for lots of things. (23.5"x11.75" - 1/8 walnut ply for $15 cad). They also do $15 flat rate shipping and free shipping above $300.

I know there’s the

I was just poking around on that glass coasters site
@chevalier_jeanpaul and @ballewdjr have shared, and discovered a whole bunch of other very interesting items under the Stone Coasters category. For example, they also have 6x12 plaques in three different types of stone, a whole category of slate craft plaques of various shapes and sizes, and black marble coasters that aren’t on the blank coasters page.
Excited I am! Now to find out if they ship to Canada.
