Snap Press From Aussie...

Post by Arna » Fri Mar 03, 2006 9:51 am

Hi there,

I am looking for a snap press, but of course dont want to pay too much, & I'm picking its the postage from overseas thats the killer!
I have found an place in Aussie (appears to be a KAM, I think it has the same symbol) http://www.snapsaustralia.com.au $60AUD for press & $50 Airmail Die set separate @ $28AUD
so is about $155NZD with a die set

Thought I would let you know & ask does it sound like a good price?

Thanks,
Arna :)

I purchased one from them a few months ago. It's great. Nice and sturdy. Mine got here in 7 days. I got size 20 die set and the nappy set of snaps and all up postage included it cost me about $180 NZD. And yes it is a KAM press and the snaps available from Greenbeans fit perfectly.

Hi,

Thanks, I had a look through the thread about the ones from china - I just didnt want to wait a couple of months :oops: as I dont really like velcro/applix that much - especially when DD likes to undo her nappies :roll: .
Kat, thanks I was hoping it would be the same as the Greenbeans ones so I could get the snaps from there!
I'm off to go spend some money now - I can hear DH asking me how much "that" cost me!
Thanks!

I got one from Alex at Snaps Australia too - same reason, no good at waiting. Great service, here in a week.

I think Kat & I both just got the size 20 die set as they're the "nappy" size.

The prices on the snaps are good too as she's just reduced the price - AU$5.50 for a set of 100 (ie 200 caps, 100 sockets & 100 studs) You really should buy some with your press :smt077

Hi Judy,
Thanks, I ordered my press! and went to order a bunch of snap sets & it kept removing postage to NZ :? -appears it got to a certain price & stopped so must have to get a quote for postage-
So I ended up getting just the baby blues since Greenbeans is out & the others I have ordered from GBs. I look forward to playing with my new toy!
If anyone in South Auckland wants a to use when it arrives, just let me know :D

I would think it would have arrived by now. Mine only took 7 days. She is busy playing with it I would imagine.

Oops, sorry for not replying quicker - Been playing with it & wallpapering :wink: (Hubby told me Saturday "No more sewing this weekend!" :cry: ) but yes it arrived quickly - ordered it on the thursday & it was here the following friday, all up it cost me just on $200NZD with the exchange rate (I'm too impatient & could not wait, but I did order some snaps & a size 16 & 20 Die set, I havent even opened the Sz16) I was only charged $50 for postage but it appears to have cost her $80AUD, if you started ordering lots of Snaps, it looks like the price cuts out the NZ postage & she must give you a quote?
PS: Its available if anyone wants to steal it away from me :wink:

I got:
1 Snap Press
1 Sz16 Die Set (which I might sell cause I dont actually need it)
1 Sz20 Die Set
2 Sets of snaps (The rest I got from Sarah, the pale blue was the one colour I wanted but she did not have - so might be worth checking to see what she's got :wink: )
Once I tried adding more than this the postage to NZ dissappeared so that was my $200 spend (- $175AUD I think - & I knew the postage was going to jump big time after checking the Aussie Post's website). I was sneaky - I didnt tell hubby, but I did get a ph call at work to ask "what the heck is this heavy metal thing that cost you $200 freaking dollars!" - I knew I should have gone home @ lunch to see if it had arrived & hide it! #-o

My hubbys still only just coming around to the cloth idea :roll: so that did not help - now I order things, then tell him & make sure there is a good reason, but he always asks How Much?! - he threatens to take to CC off me too :cry: but he knows he cant because we need it to finish the house off :smt041

hehe I actually think dp was really clever coz I love spending with no justification other that I want it =P~ I just emailed aus and they said $203.30 for a snap press and 1 size 20 die set :( so I think that I shall probably have to wait as I would rather pay $200 for what you got :roll: oh well better look at the china deal although I think it probably wont be any better :cry:
