Pampered Chef: Lap Boards

    I have been looking at the Lap Boards that you can buy from Town and Country Printing. I was wondering if anyone is using them and if you are pleased with your purchase. Your comments would be appreciated.

    Thank you in advance, :)

    I have the lapboards and my guests LOVED using them. The appreciated that they had something to write on. I would put the Super Starter flier on the back pocket so I could talk about it.

    I must admit that I haven't taken them with me to shows in the last year. ONLY because I was trying to minimize how much I carried to shows. Now that you've brought it up, maybe I should start using them again.

    I, too, have the lapboards and I love them. I do have to be careful when I stack them that I don't tear off the plastic piece that holds my business card. They can get heavy, but it's easier to "re-stuff" because I don't have to open everyone (like I did the folders and catalogs).

    Thank you ladies for your input about the lap boards. My current folders are looking very "used" :eek: and I want/need to do something by the Fall/Winter season. I've been curious about the lap boards since I started PC. I didn't want to invest that much on the "unknown"! ;) I'll be placing my order soon!

    Thank you again,

  5. I went to a party the other day and the consultant had cut the sides of three ring binders. Leaving her with two lap boards. If you get the kind with the clear plastic covering in the front you will have a place to display a flyer. and on the other side is a pouch to put catolog and order forms and what ever else you give your guests for your shows. With school starting and school supplies being on sale it is an inexpensive way to get lap boards. :cool:

    How many?

    How many lap boards do you take to shows? I'm new and just starting my shows and I doing want to take too many, but neither do I want to have too few.

    I would think it depends on each show. Make sure you get a general idea of how many people are coming from the host a couple days before the show. If she asks why (I can't imagine she would) simply say that you need to know in order to make the right amount of food (true). I bring about 3-5 extras because you don't know if anyone unexpected might show up. I think that town and country gives you a free carrier for the lap boards if you order 12 or more, but I would souble check to be sure.
