    Hi guys

    Just interested to know how much you pay for Gerber 45metre spot colour foils?

    I was shocked at the cost of one spot colour - I won't reveal the price I paid just yet :)

    Cheers

    115 Canadian dollars = 73.8366134 British pounds
    108.24 U.S. dollars = 69.1629393 British pounds

    I recently purchased a 45metre Sunflower foil from Spandex & was charged
    £128.45GBP = $200.69USD or $199 Canadian.

    If ever there's a way to kill off the Gerber, this is it for me.

    Have you looked into third party foils? We bought a used edge about 2 years ago, and to date I have only ever bought 1 spool of gerber brand foils. For example, I pay $80 CAD for a 100 yard refill from duracoat, vs about $125 for 50 yards from gerber.

    A bit pricey for a foil manufactured in Europe and purchased directly by Spandex and Gerber gets $0

    JOhn, that is well over the odds. If you want to drop me an email I'll tell you what we pay. Happy to order on our account if it helps.

    we have been using the zeronine foils for at least 6 years with no issues
    i only order the gerber foil for specialty colors that zeronine doesn't have

    Thanks guys for the replies. It's really interesting to see the variation in the cost of foils.

    I usually buy my foils from PrintONE ut on this occasion I was in such a hurry, I went to Spandex.

    Lesson learned. - I won't be using Spandex again unless i really have to.

    @Jase
    Thanks for the offer - I'll give you a call next time.
