Update 31/04/2020.
In these challenging times we are committed to supporting you and will continue to deliver to schools, nurseries and homes.
Please note normal deliveries may take 3 to 5 days.

Some items which are delivered directly to you from our suppliers may be delayed due to some suppliers not being fully operational at this time.

The wellbeing of our team here at Schools Direct Supplies is foremost.
We are proud that we have always been a very family friendly company and have always offered our people flexible working when needed.
Some of our team will be working from home moving forward, with a small team at our warehouse.
We are very much open for business.

We have large stocks of laminating pouches, office paper, gluesticks, and display papers and multiple suppliers for janitorial, printers, ink cartridges and stationery supplies enabling you to keep stocked up and working.
We can also offer a sourcing service for any products that we don’t normally stock but can try and get for you should you be struggling with any other suppliers that you normally use.


A Guide to Marbling
1) Always wear suitable aprons as the inks will cause staining on clothes, stains should be treated immediately with neat washing up liquid. Also protect the working area.
2) Using a tray (or sink) larger than the paper to be marbled, fill to a depth of about 3 cm (1 inch) with water.
3) Prime the surface of the water using a drop of marbling ink, remove this with scrap paper. You are now ready to start.
4) Using the dropper bottles apply one or two drops of colour gently onto the surface of the water. Several colours may be used together, though the best results are usually obtained using between 2 and 5 inks. Allow the colours to spread across the surface of the water, to create your own individual pattern gently blow or comb and swirl the droplets of ink with craft sticks.
5) Lift the print from the water by placing a sheet of paper onto the print and carefully removing. Two or more prints are possible with just one application of ink.
6) Remove the excess ink from the water with scrap paper.
