    Of course it is. So whilst keep on suggesting retailers like DD also suggest any manufacturers you'd like. In fact some of the deals already done are direct with the brands.

    Think if you read my comments in post 2 and 5 of the below thread it should show my comments historically were never negative to matters such as this, quiet the reverse in fact

    I think it would be more then useful to try and seal a deal with manufactures of sundries more then tools. As this stuff would always be in demand more then brushes/ sanders/ rollers etc :scratchhead:

    So say a direct deal with toupret would be ideal

    A caulk brand? I'm not sure on which brand does not have many problems so would let other deccies decide?

    Mirka for standard sandpaper/autonet/abranet etc

    and maybe tesa tapes or something for masking tape? again I'm not sure on best masking tape's available

    Surely with these type of suppliers on the scheme it would follow to more savings in the long run then say Proform for brushes? :scratchhead:

    From what little I know, I would think that getting one big supplier onboard, such as Decorating Direct and letting them know what products we would like to see them stock would be better than trying to get various individual manufacturers involved.
    As one who doesn't need to buy a lot of materials and tools I can struggle to put together a big enough order to avoid postage as one place sells product x that I want but another sells product y - one central supplier who is willing to try stocking various products that we suggest would be of greater benefit to me, and I imagine to the rest of us. It gives them buying power as well as us.

    Hmmmm....

    Well while this is a good idea and I don't mean to be negative, I think you should obviously credit me with the WHOLE idea and rename it the following:

    PPS (as first thought by FreshDecorators) Discount Scheme

    Once this has been corrected I will be fully behind it :winky:

    :notworthy::notworthy::notworthy:

    If you could sort something out with Volkswagen, Lavazza and maybe Subway that would be good too

    You're certainly one of the reasons the idea was brought forward rather than being sat on the shelf being poked at waiting for the right time.

    A timely kick up the arris:thumbsup:

    Any chance of having a word with Lidl? I just luuurve their walnut cake :hysterical:

    Seriously though, what a cracking idea and fair play to the brains behind it :thumbsup:

    A source of Mirka and assorted sundries would be good for me, and maybe a Festool dealer might be dragged kicking and screaming into the scheme?
