    I love the ceramicshop.com I can usually find the best prices on supplies there. No free shipping though. But by the time I driver 40 miles each way, plus paying city & county taxes, I still usually come out good!

    A group that has some of the best underglaze transfers in a variety of colors is elantransfers.com . A lot of the bigger online stores are sourcing theirs directly from elan. Some unique, modern designs. If you like it, but it! They sell out quickly with re-stocking & new designs. They also have a newsletter and some free video tutorials for their customers.
