Bulk Readi-Board (Dollar Tree foamboard) shipped directly to you?
It is apparent that Dollar Tree foamboard (Readi-Board brand) serves a very valuable use to some of us in the foamie scratchbuild community but that it is not accessible or convenient to acquire for all of us.
I have determined from the manufacturer that it may be possible to obtain larger quantities directly from them at a cost that is less than the $1 price at Dollar Tree. Of course the trade-off is the shipping cost and the bulk requirement. Additional benefits are that they manufacture all variety of colors that are not available at Dollar Tree.
I would like to ask the community if there is any interest in placing larger quantities of Readi-Board, shipped to your door, and if so, what would be a fair price per sheet of foamboard.
Please give your opinion on the attached poll.
Vote once for the largest threshold quantity you would order (the most you would order at once).
Vote a second time for your break-even, highest fair per-sheet cost shipped to your door. By comparison, Dollar Tree would be $1-1.12 depending on tax, plus the time, trouble, and fuel to go buy it. Maybe you've got a Dollar Tree in your neighborhood, and $1 is all you would pay. Maybe there's not a Dollar Tree for 500 miles, and $2 a sheet would be good.
If you read this and are not interested, please still vote as such so we'll have more valid poll results.
This is for the standard 20"x30" foamboard sheets. Also assume there would be some additional choices of color, probably mix and match. Samples appear here: http://www.adamsplasticsinc.com/index.php/readi-board
Thanks for your input!

Could they also consider sheets without paper and maybe sheets that are larger, the 36 x 48 used for tri- fold display boards? They would have to charge more for those of course.

Well it looks like Dollar Tree has the market for Readi-Board mostly covered for the time being. Based on the poll not many scratchbuilders want to order the quantities or pay the price needed to support an RC sub-dealer of Readi-Board.
RL Adams did provide some names of alternative sources:
You can find all of our Readi-Board for sales in small quantities at the following web address:
Their prices are very good but they do require a $500 minimum order for shipping purposes. If this doesn’t suit you, GL Wholesale will direct you to the following site where you should be able to buy in smaller quantities:
A tertiary online option for both our white and our black Readi-Board is available on Dollar Tree’s website:
