Where do you guys recommend to purchase silk in bulk? I was looking for 9inch silks and seeing where the best deals are.

You can buy individual silks from Laflin Magic. Why would anyone want a 9 inch silk, when I blow my nose, I have to use a at least an 18". :rotf:

I was thinking of getting Scott Alexander's effect Apple Jacked, and the give away is a signed silk, so I wanted to see where I could get them in bulk or at a good price.

The problem with buying wholesale, is the minimum required order amount. D. Robbins requires $500 minimum order, Loftus, Magic City, Fun Inc. and others may be a little less, you have check with them. Also Bob Sanders here on the Café is a silk wholesaler, you can contact him as well. But you would have to buy a large quantity with any of them. If you are only going to give them away, you may have to purchase a life time supply.

You may also contact Laflin Magic as they sell to retailers as well, so it would not be a jobber or wholesale price, but you would maybe be able to get a good price for a smaller quantity.

Magic Makers Inc. say on their website they will sell silks by the dozen.

You will have to contact all these wholesalers to see if you qualify.

Michael, then they changed it, because the local magic shop has been doing business since the 1940's, and I was told that an order had to total $500.

You might be surprised at what things have changed since the 1940s. ;)

But you don't get the best discounts for that limit. You pay shipping and don't get other discounts.

I have been making silks for a guy to use for the silk in apple for several years. What I make a 6mm x 6" x 45" silks. They are hemmed on two sides. He then just cuts them to 6" square and used them with the other two sides unheeded. I probably been making them for him for 15 years so it must be working.
