Question: I love using chipboard letters. I buy them in sets but find that I’m using alot of the same letters (vowels, r, s, t, and l’s) and have alot of the less common ones leftover all the time. Do you know where I can buy individual chipboard letters?
Answer: A few of my local scrapbooking stores do sell letters alone. It is hard to find single letters smaller than 3 inches online, but I found a few. We carry some 2.75″ single chipboard letters from Two Peas in a Bucket, but these sell quick and I notice that many “important” letters are already gone. A Cherry on Top also sells some single letters.
Since I seem to have the same problem as you, I have also found other ways to help me out with the letters I need. My friends and I get together once a year and “swap” letters (and other supplies) because we all have family members with different names or we use different titles.
Another way I have saved myself a lot of money is I buy sheets of chipboard and make my own letters. No - you don’t have to be an artist or perfectionist. I have several letter stencils, but I also like some of the fonts on my computer, so I print them off the size I want and then lay the sheet of paper over the chipboard and trace over the outline pressing hard. When the paper is removed you can see the outline on the chipboard. Then just cut it out. If you sand the edges a bit, it looks amazing!
