Stout hand bills sold.

I've also got the following available if anyone is interested before I stick them on eBay.

Seems like the wrong time for me to try and offload my tat...I mean give others the chance to own some high quality art.

Put it in your trades for a start and we can have a look. So far noone has offered up anything I'm after though in this new year collection purge. :lol:

Good point. I have never used those things. I have always bought to collect for myself, rather than trading up/selling as is the norm here.

It's only recently, having finally framed some stuff, and done a quick calculation that I realise I haven't got space...

Can anyone recommend an online UK shop to buy decent tubes (preferably the same size/diameter as Mondo tubes - certainly no bigger).

I need 10-15 and rather sharpish.

I get mine from Essex Tubes (Essex Windings)… they have an off the shelf selection but you can get them made to spec and they're very cost effective.

10-15 is tricky. I recommend Essex tubes, they're great but I buy 150 at a time.

Cheers guys.

Hmm will have to look into it then, l might have to bite the bullet and buy 25 unless they can work something out with me.

Is it just the 'Postal' tubes you go for? None of them say anything about how thick they are.

I find it's easier to just call them and tell them what you want - there wasn't anything in their off the shelf selection that would do for me.

Yeh I think that's the way it's heading.

I drop them an email - info@essextubes.com

Ask them for a quote giving quantity and size including caps and shipping. They'll get back to you with a price.

I go for 4mm on the tubes I use for Jock. I used 5mm for a commission and they were rock solid.

A tip is to work out what kraft you're getting before choosing a size. For example if you're getting 700mm sheets of kraft paper then order the tubes 720mm long for a tight fit.
