Sounds good. Let us know how you get on with these guys. I might want to set up something similar here in Australia.

Well, from what they're telling me, 27"x39" @ 6mm thick would cost about $3.75 / sheet shipped. I have confirmation that it's the real deal as well and not something else. Now if I can figure out how to move sheets in Quantity on a regular basis as well as how long shipping will take to reach me, then I may have a niche business opportunity.

Ok, I'm curious, how many people would be interested in a $5 / sheet plus shipping for 27"x39" @6mm thick Depron sheets an how many?

Obviously, the more sheets that get ordered, the less it'll cost. If I can justify a 600 +/- sheets order, I can get it @ $5 / sheet and would be willing to re-ship packages of it out to people. I can get 2 different sizes but I'm not equipped to cut the 4'x8' sized sheets that they also offer (Yes, you read that right, 4 foot by 8 foot sized sheets of Depron).

So let me know if you'd be interested and the quantity and if it totals out to 600 sheets, I'll place an order and we'll make arrangements from here.

That would also mean I'd have to move the thread to the vendors threads...

I'd probably do 16 sheets or so. Is this something you could order again later on too?

Is that shipped price? And what sort of packaging?

if I set up as a business yes. Right now I'm trying to assess whether or not there's enough demand to meet a minimum delivery. The more sheets I order, the lower the cost of the sheets / shipping will be because of volume discount.

The problem is, if I make that big an order I need to be able to move it because I don't know about you guys but I'm not so sure I have storage space for 500+ sheets of 27" x 39" sheets of Depron.

Are you checking with other forums as well to get as many people lined up as you can?

Hi Argonath,
I sure hope you can pull this off! It would be so nice to have a source of depron here in Canada. One of the LHS in my area carries depron but it is a 45 minute drive one way and $10 a sheet for 5mm.
What is the plan for shipping, UPS, Puralator, Canada Post?
I seem to remember you are near Montreal and I am north of Toronto so it would be interesting to see what the shipping charges might be, what the optimum quantity would be to get the best shipping price.
I'll keep an eye on this thread to see how you are making out. GB.

I'm working on multiple projects right now so it's more a time factor. I'm building an addition to my house right now and I'm doing it alone (Working against the coming foul weather and running out of time) so I'm trying to find out what type of response I'd get as well as how feasible it is.

I'd like to leave IT completely. After 30 years in it, I'm sick of it and think I'd like to open a Comics, cards, hobbies, LAN, Computer repair, RC type place but it's a little on a back burner at the moment because of my house addition.

I'm already seeing Canada geese go south here in Montreal so it tells me winter is coming and it's going to be a lot sooner than we think this year.

I know what you mean. I am 2 years,8 months and 14 days away; but I am not really counting! Please let me know how it is going, as I said, really looking forward to a source of Dapron here. GB.
