Knowing how many here prefer Tallys to Bicycles, but find the price a touch prohbitive, I stumbled on what appears to be a good cheap source.
I haven't bought from them to verify, but if anyone wants Tally-Hos's in quantity (they only sell by case, I believe - 12 packs a case),

http://www.filmart.com/cgi-bin/filmart/TALHPC.html

is selling them for $1.50 a pack/12, which comes to only $18.
I also can't tell if they're circle back or fan back, but you could always call and ask I guess.
If anyone buys from them, let us know ?

Also, I apologize if anyone feels this post belongs in the dealers forum, but it is card specific, so I posted here.

I think you need a resale or state tax ID to order from here, but the price is great.
I will try to give them a call this week to find out. I don't need any cards right now but its nice to know the opportunity is there.
Thanks Cyberhagen - by the way, what exit are you from? Pike or Parkway?

Shipping seems to be a lot too, $10 for 12 decks.
So it comes to $28 for 12 decks. that's $2.33 for each deck.

But if you buy 24 decks, the shipping is still $10, and $46 for 24 decks. Which ends up coming to $1.92 per deck.

And if you buy 36 decks, with $10 shipping, $64 for 36 decks, so 1.77 per deck.

So Im thinking about getting 24 decks, which would come to $46.

Just don't want them all to be the same back design Smile

I sent an email to ask about the shipping and the backs on the cards, as well as whether or not you need a tax id, but I have not gotten a reply yet. When I do, I will be sure to post. Further bulletins as events warrant.

Neither, actually. I live near Delran, south Jersey. I'm about 15 minutes from Philly, by the Delaware River and the Rancocas Creek. I guess Pike-wise, I'd be exit 5 or 6, but still miles away.
I didn't notice anything about dealers only here, I apologize if they're not open to the general public and I got anyone's hopes up. I think even with shipping (cards get heavy to ship !)one case is an awesome deal.

Why do you think they want a tax ID ? Just wondering. On the site, they're for professional and amateur photographers, I poked around a bit and didn't see anything that led me to believe they didn't sell to the general public, although I'm sure they'll take a Tax ID if you have one to submit.

Sounds like a good deal I need to give them a call, but I guess it just sucks to throw 10 dollars for shipping.

I don't know - just assumed (I know I know)
Everytime I have ever found a good price, it was only for wholesalers. They never emailed back, by the way.

So just curious where do we stand on the issue?
I'm just wondering whether it is a bargain or not. I mean I love the cards its just the 10 dollar shipping. I know I'm going to end up getting them its just X-mas killed me.

Well on kardwell the shipping is even more than that. and 10 bucks shipping for a few dozen decks is actually really good.

$10 for shipping a case of cards is not bad at all. Cards get heavy fast, as you stack them up.
Also, don't forget to think in terms of sales tax saved: 6% (or whatever your state would hit you up for) isn't much, but it's something. I would deduct it from the shipping as the true amount of overhead cost. [ .94 x $10 = $9.40. ]
Simply put, I haven't seen a cheaper source yet, shipping or no shipping.

BTW, why are circle backs preferred over fan backs ? I'm kinda partial to the fanbacks myself. I have one deck I won on eBay, just to see what all the hubbub was about.

I have circle backs and I wanted fan backs. What is the difference anyways? Also only 6% slaes tax, wow. Here in Tennessee it is like 9.5948372 (okay, yes, those are random digits at the end.) Still that is almost and extra 10% on purchases!

The difference between fan backs and circle backs are of course the back design.LOL j/k! I've been asking many people that and they just seem to think that fan backs are ugly from a poll that I took off 10 people. I like both but since I like doing fan, I prefer to use fan backs because they look better. I don't think there's a real signigicant difference, I just think it has to do with personal preference.
I use http://www.pokerchips.com but I'm trying to find a cheaper source.

I like the look of fan backs, myself. They look mysterious. Circle backs just look common and cliche'd, IMHO of course.
