Sorry - we do not provide free samples.
We are a small craft scale start-up business and we just can't afford it - regardless of the no doubt huge marketing potential of such an approach.
And we have had quite a few very unconvincing people try to get us to believe that they were the buying arm of a major corporation about to branch out into ecological papers (etc. etc.), and, er, could they have a valentines card for free !!
It is of course possible that someone about to place a very large order doesn't have the budget or the inclination for a very small purchase - but its not probable - well at least that's our best guess anyway!
But, if you think you've got the magic way of asking - you can contact us and explain your special needs for free samples.
