A huge reason I'm scared of shipping is because I don't have the boxes etc on hand to make sure the products fit to offer a quote to a potential buyer.
Now that I actually took the time to sit down, I realized you can get express mail and priority mail boxes/envelopes shipped to your house for free! Now I'll have the envelopes on hand and can guarantee a shipping price accurately! (I got priority mail flat rate boxes and envelopes, as well as matching address labels.)
So I got...
- 1 pack of 25 priority mail large flat rate box
- 100 priority mail address labels
- 2 packs of 25 of priority mail small flat rate box
- 1 pack of 25 priority mail medium flate rate box-o-FRB2
- 1 pack of 25 priority mail medium flate rate box-o-FRB1
- 1 pack of 15 priority mail flat rate padded envelopes
They should be here within a week, maybe a few days more.
It requires an account but that's it--didn't ask for cc info, etc. Registered as a business account~
My brand/'company' is Bunny Blushies now I guess???
So I just changed my etsy to match. I'll be putting up a banner, announcement, and new products very soon.
Ooo and I got a heat sealer, a hand-held one from ebay for like $3.38. It'll work for small objects.
