Psssst .... wanna buy some freezer paper?

Following on from yesterday's post .... if you are in Australia and interested in buying US-branded freezer paper here are some options. Before buying, it might be worthwhile reading through some of the suggestions left in the comments.

Oz Quilts
Reynolds Freezer Paper 12m x 38cm wide ($13.95)
Ricky Tims' Extra-Wide Freezer Paper ($15.95)
Quilter’s Freezer Paper Sheets: 30 Sheets, 8.5 x 11 inch ($12.00)

Punch With Judy
C. Jenkins Freezer Paper Sheets: 50 sheets, 8.5 x 11 inch ($16.95)
Reynolds Freezer Paper - 1m ($1.00)
Reynolds Freezer Paper - 5m ($5.00)
Reynolds Freezer Paper - 12.1m box ($11.00)
Reynolds Freezer Paper - 15.3m box ($14.00)
Reynolds Freezer Paper - 30.7m box ($22.00)

USA Foods
Reynolds Freezer Paper 75 sq feet ($9.99)
Hersheys Milk Chocolate Bar 43g ($2.00)*

Patchwork Quilting & Craft
Quilter’s Freezer Paper Sheets: 30 Sheets, 8 1/2” x 11” ($12.00)
Reynolds Freezer Paper Box 12m x 38cm ($12.95)
Ricky Tims' Extra-Wide Freezer Paper 42" x 42" ($15.95)

All of these prices are exclusive of delivery charges, which do vary. If my imperial-to-metric guestimate is right, it looks like a roll of Reynolds Freezer Paper is probably cheapest through USA Foods. However, they do have a $20 minimum purchase. *Still you could always buy $10 of Hersheys bars, right?

(Never doing anything by half-measures, I have bought a little bit of both Reynolds and C. Jenkins. I have ordered mine through Punch With Judy)

Any other suggestions for brands or places to buy?

  1. I know Calico + Ivy stock it too for about $1 per metre.
    Love your research, particularly the chocolate segue. That's got to be a favourite of mine.

  7. I got a supply of Reynolds paper form my parents when they visited from Canada. It's great for applique and little bits, but when I tried to get larger sheets ready to go through the printer a couple of weeks ago, it just wouldn't stick! Anyone else tried this method? Am I missing something??

  12. Under the counter freezer paper. I'm sorry, that makes me laugh so hard! Do they wrap it up in brown paper and check that you're old enough to buy it, too? (tee hee)
