USPS Resumes Accepting Mail to Canada

Now that the Canada Post strikes are over, the United States Post Office is accepting mail to Canada again. However, according to their service update page:

"Due to the large volumes of mail held by countries, customers may experience slightly longer transit times. USPS is working closely with the Canadian Postal Service to hold delays to a minimum."

We can't know how long the delays will be but conservatively, we recommend expecting a 3 week or more delay over normal transit times. There is also a larger possibility that more packages will be lost in transit due to this influx of mail. For this reason, will resume USPS Priority shipping but will delay First Class shipping until further notice. That means our free shipping to Canada program will be suspended for a while until we are more confident packages to Canada will reach their destinations without long delays or mishaps. But you can take advantage of our already reduced Priority shipping rates to Canada of as low as $5 on most packages, regardless of how large your order is.

We still recommend waiting to place your order to Canada if you can to give the inevitable chaos a chance to die down.

A Note about Size 16/14 Sockets & Studs

Many people who are unfamiliar with size 16 or 14 snaps confuse the studs and sockets for the same piece because they look so similar. Before you assume you received the wrong pieces, please look very closely. You may refer to the picture below for reference. You can also just snap the 2 pieces together to confirm that they fit.

Custom Color Sample Bags Now Available

Along with the color card showing all 60 of the original KAM plastic snap color line (B1-B60), you can now purchase sample bags of our custom color snaps, starting at just 50 cents for each custom color group. Limited availability. Available at

KAM Color Card

A KAM color card displays the complete original KAM color line (B1-B60) of plastic snaps. Available with matte caps or glossy caps. Custom colors are not included on color cards. Note: It is unnecessary to purchase both a glossy and a matte card since both display the identical colors--only the finish is different.

Custom Color Bags

For a limited time, you can also purchase sample bags of our custom colors (not part of the original KAM color line). Each bag will contain 1 cap per color in each available color group, listed below. Individual snap colors will not be labeled.

1-Day Sale to Come: 25% off KAM Snaps

For 1 day only, will be offering certain snaps (to be decided by our customers!) at a whopping 25% discount. Visit for complete details.

Help Support 2 Great Causes currently offers 2 awareness ribbon engraved snaps--in yellow and pink. The yellow is to show support of our soldiers, and the pink to support the fight against breast cancer. They're available for purchase at

Through the end of 2011, we will donate $5 to either Susan G. Komen for the Cure or The Wounded Warrior Project (or other similar charitable organizations) for every person who makes a qualifying finished project using the engraved ribbon snaps, up to $500. Feel free to send us your suggestion for another organization helping to fight breast cancer or support our soldiers.

We are really interested in seeing how creatively you incorporate these snaps into your project, whether it be a purse, a shirt, or whatever you can think of.

Here are the rules to qualify:
  • Your project must use at least 5 of the engraved ribbon snaps.
  • You must submit at least the following 2 photos of your finished project: one photo showing your project as a whole, and one photo of a close-up of the engraved ribbon snaps on your project. You're of course welcome to send more than just those 2 photos if you'd like. Each photo should be no larger than 600 pixels wide or long. Photos should be clear. Email photos to sales @ (remove the spaces).
  • A $5 donation will be made to one of the 2 causes above (or send us your suggestion for other organizations) for every person/household/group that makes a project using the snaps and submits photos of that project. You can submit as many photos of as many projects using the engraved ribbon snaps as you want, but there is a limit of one $5 donation per person/household/group no matter how many projects you make/submit.
  • The same project cannot be submitted by multiple people.
  • may post your photos on our website or other web pages (ie. Facebook, Blogger, Twitter, etc). You may request that we include a link to your site if desired.
  • Rules are subject to change without notice. This is a first for us so we're learning as we go. We don't want to focus on what's not allowed, but there are rules and limitations that we hope are already implied and that we need not have to spell out.
We know that one or both of these causes are dear to many of your hearts. This is our way of showing our support, and we hope you'll have some fun with it in the process.
