    Does anyone buy those surprise packages for $4?
    I like to know what I'm getting before buying but there is no way of knowing with those. What if they are patterns that you don't want?

          Hi Diane, I have gotten several of the surprise packs and there are some decent patterns in them. All in all I would have to say that they are worth the four dollars. Steve

              Diane,
              I've got many and I do mean MANY BB patterns and have dowloaded some of the surprise packets. I'll say they're worth the 4 bucks, for sure. Of all the patterns I've acquired from them over the years, I only have a handful that I have doubles of.

              I really like BB...they're clear and concise...and downloadable!

              I was always afraid to try some of the more intricate ones on my 'lil Delta saw, but now , with the Yeller Behemoth, maybe I can be a little braver!

                Hi Diane, I have also purchased lots of BB surprise packs, usually one a month. I agree with John, the patterns are downloadable, clear, and very easy to use. I don't always print them, I save them to a CD and then print them when I want to use them. At $ 4.00 for a pack of 8 pattens, you can't go wrong even if you only use 1 pattern

                  I guess you all have convinced me. You buy one a month Marsha or they come out once a month?

                    Diane, I don't know how often they come out, but once a month I get an email from BB with a new surprise package, I buy that one. I started doing this about 8 months ago and I've never bought a duplicate pattern yet.

                        They send out emails with specials on them, and they usually include a new surprise packet. The email will show one of the patterns from the packet, so you have some idea of what is in it. Sometimes, later in the month, they'll send another email, and show a different pattern from the same pack. I bought my first surprise pack when they showed the "Dad's Shop" pattern that is included in it. I've since received an email showing the Victorian shelves that are also in it.

                        Cheers,

                          Diane,
                          BB also gives you access to their free "pattern of the month" in their emails. Something I didn't mention is that their downloadables are all in PDF format, so you'll need Adobe Reader to open and print them. It's free and easy to use.

                          I also, burn them to a CD and that way, I'll have them whenever I need them, even after my daughter crashes the 'puter!

                            They also sell their previous surprise packages on CD, ten of the surprise packages for $40.00. It ends up the same price. They also put these on sale from time to time. Have gotten some of their CD's on ebay as well.

                              I have never seen their CDs. Will check that out. It probably comes out to more money because you pay for shipping.
                              Thanks

                                None Linda. You need to find the right heat temp so it shrinks but doesn’t put a hole in the wrap but the tape doesn’t shrink or tear.

                                What thickness of film seems to work the best for puzzles?
                                The bags seem easier on the surface.
                                But the film seems like it is more versatile on size variations.

                                Regulations are 150 square feet, this will be 144 square feet so we are good. He’s making it that size Since the sheets are 4’ wide. And the Shelves need to be 4” above my head!! It will be very specific.

                                As a framer, we have a shrinker wrapper at ArtCrafters. Very simple. Film on a roller, sealer attached, just roll off enough film, seal the film, insert object, seal other end and shrink with a heat gum. We also use Uline as a source. Not sure where our unit can from as it was with the shop when...

                                I would make the shed 1" less than the size permits are required for. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH SPACE....
