Does anyone know a good place to get foam board and card stock or poly styrene sheets in Saskatoon?

i'd suggest walmart nowadays over michaels for foam board; they sell larger sheets for $3/sheet now. they come in 22"x28" (616 square inches) for that price as opposed to Michaels' sheets which are usually 18"x24" (432 square inches), and they vary the price based on the color, not size, which is weird.

or as Samuel L Jackson said as the Octopus, "that is Really damn weird!"

Thing to remember about michaels is that they are a cyclical sale store. Many of their items are overpriced as they expect every large item to sell with a 40 or 50% off coupon from their flyer. You should almost never enter the store unless you have a coupon. some weeks they even put a 25% off entire purchase(including sale items) coupon. the funny thing is that when they print your receipt, it sometimes has a 40-50% coupon printed right on the receipt, so you can walk out and right back in to buy your next item.

seems a wierd way to do business to me, but i guess it gets people in the store.

the foam board comes on sale there pretty regularly too, sometimes for as little as $1.00 each. i bought 6-7 big sheets of it last time.

They don't have much for Plasticard. i had to go to Hobby World for that, on idylwyld. Darren also sells a nice little bag of plasticard, it has some corners and tubing in it as well. little costly though.

actually, you got that only half right;

unless there's a big sale going on, all receipts will have this coupon on the back.

also, it specifically states "this coupon is not good until the following week of the purchase made on the receipt opposite of the coupon. "

the coupon also states its "not applicable for any large items, such as xmas trees, or for items already marked on sale."

that's all read off of the last receipt i have from there, and i know all the others ones i've gotten said the same thing.
