I have found the mesh tape Beulon invisible zipper at zipperstop in cream, white and black. But if I wanted it in a different color I would need to order 50 of the same color. Is there any other site online that sells them? I think my local JoAnn's only sells coats and clarks. I'm looking for lightweight mesh tape invisible zipper to place in very lightweight fabrics.

I thinking I was ordering invisible zippers, I ordered YKK knitted tape from sewinpartsonline.com Although they were lovely and light weight, they were not invisible. I did not read the description right.

Thanks.

According to Amazon, there are some available at zipperstop.

href='href='http://www.amazon.com/dp/B009CEWVJS/ref=asc_df_B009CEWVJS2510275?smid=A3MWNI3RBKPB7G&tag=sdcbing597-20&linkCode=asn&creative=395105&creativeASIN=B009CEWVJS ' target='_blank'>Beulon invisible zips' target='_blank'>Beulon invisible zippers

It looks as if they're available singly (priced per piece), but the shipping could blow your budget if they don't combine shipping.

EDIT: Later this week, I'll have a chance to snoop around a couple of zipper stores in NYC; I'll let you know if I find a good source for the Beulon invisibles.

On the zipperstop website it looks as if you can order any color that appears on the drop down menu in any quantity. Any other color has to be ordered in lots of 50.

I just checked zipperstop and it appears they have only black in
the mesh tape one (Beulon invisible zipper ) . The drop down menu
for colors says (in cart) that minimum order is 50. Pehaps I missed
some info but if anyone finds out different info, please post. Thanks
n advance!

Ah, now I see what's up - two different pages for ordering the Beulon zippers, one for colors and one for black and white. That's what I get for posting at 2 in the morning! Sorry about that.

I found them in white and black at SIL in NYC. If anyone comes up with any other colors I'd love to know too.

At Fabricland in Canada the invisible zippers are all mesh tape. They are the brand Costumakers made by H.A. Kidd http://www.hakidd.com but they are strictly wholesale to retailers.

I just ordered one each of the five colors available on Amazon. Shipping was $4, so 5 zippers cost a total of $9.
