michaels is the only place i've found them. they don't always know that they have them, but they do! (micheals employees often get confused!)

they're in one of the scrapbooking aisles, fairly high up on the wall.

i don't think there's a micheals in Burnaby, New West, or Vancouver though. there's one in richmond, one in langley, and one in coquitlam.

Inkjet Shrink Sheets, you mean shrink plastic that can go into the printer?

You can find them in LOOMIS, I saw them once.
I don't have a car, so Loomis is more accessable for me, than Micheal.

You can also find shrink plastic at DAISO, but I don't think you can put them in the printer.

Oooh, they are building a new Micheal at SE Marine drive? GREAT !!

You can use any Number 6 plastic-
Sushi boxes, strawberry boxes..
Anything with the little 6 in the recycling triangle
Just Sharpie your  image and bang it in the oven
Looks great and IS FREEE.

Ooh, thanks!  Yup they're building it around that huge bend, I think they even named the area because of the bend or something like that...They've built a London Drugs, some huge supermarket, Canadian Tire, Tim Hortons and a slew of other things...I think Linens and Things or a similar store is going to be built there too...so that area will get mighty interesting...as soon as they finish building it.  Although constructions been going on since last fall (and they estimated that they'd be done sometime this April, though it's clearly mid-May now) the only ones that went up super quick were Timmy H, Canadian Tire and London Drugs...sooo...it's still a bunch of foundation buildings around that area *sigh*  As for Loomis...Loomis? I haven't been there in ages...I think the only one I know of is the one near Main...But I'll give it a check!

Yeah, I tend to get paranoid without instructions on things I don't experiment with ^^"  I'll probably give it a try once I get the hang of shrink plastic, but thanks!

there's also a loomis on broadway now, between oak and granville (within a few blocks of toys'r'us, easy walking from granville). they closed the one down by granville island, and moved to a new store. broadway might be easier to get to than main, depending where you are.
