I getting tired of printing everything in silver filament. I'm looking for a company in Canada for good filament , within the $30 to $35CDN per kg range. I prefer a Canadian store because of shipping and exchange rate.

I found these store ,but don't know the quality of the filament

http://www.filaments.ca/
http://www.reprapwarehouse.com/
http://www.voxelfactory.com/

Has anybody bought from these store or recommend a store?

I just received my order of filaments from http://seacans.com/ and was surprise to see it's look like the same manufacture as rapide filaments

The silver box from Rapide Lite. The blue from Seacan

I order from filaments.ca most of the time, they have the same labels as above - I think most of it comes from the same place.

Filaments.ca has a great selection of filaments and shipping is free in Canada over $125.

Most of PLA filaments at Filamenst.ca is sold out. I'm been checking over month, since I got my printer.

I bought from seacans because the PLA is suppose to be made from "Made with American NatureWorks® PLA". Unless "American NatureWorks®" is a Chinese company;)

I know that filaments.ca gets theirs in large batches. I emailed them and they let me know when it was coming in. It's every 3 weeks or so, I think they sell out quickly.

It's cheaper to buy from seacons, even with paying for ship, but you have to buy in bulk. I bought 5 and it works out to $28 each (includes shipping and taxes to Ontario)

I bought my filaments from Mechestore (https://www.mechestore.com/collections/filaments). Their prices and quality of filaments are better than others. The best thing is that they offer free shipping in Canada over $69.
