If you are interested in purchasing corks, SHW member Tom Montgomery is facilitating a cork purchase from ACIC Cork and Closures.
Corks are purchased and priced in lots of #1000 however, ACIC is allowing us to split at $4/split. If ACIC does the split, the corks are packaged and gassed in the quantity ordered.
Here’s the pricing (in lots of 1000):
Naturetop (1+1/bi-disc) – $110
Natural cork AC-3 (Solid 45mm) – $265
Natural cork AC-2 (Solid 45mm) – $312
I have used both the Naturetop and AC-3 with good results. I may try the AC-2 this year.
How to order and pay:
Email me your order per cork type in increments of 250, 500, 1000.
I will charge you an additional $2 for any 250 or 500 order.
As an example, if you need:
250 Naturetops, It will cost ($110/4)+$2 = $27.50 plus tax
250 AC-3 will cost you ($265/4)+$2 = $68.25 plus tax
You will pay when you pick up your corks. I like cash.
Last day to order – 1/29/2016
Order Submitted – 2/1/2016
Corks available for pickup from my residence – 2/7/2016
I will bring any corks not picked up to the 2/17 meeting.
All dates and split charges could mildly deviate depending on the number of people and quantity of corks are purchased.
Group buy is available for SHW members only.
