Running a small business can be tough. But it can be made easier with quality shipping supplies to send out your shop's goodies! Since I am all about small business owners sticking together, I am here to share which shipping supplies we use to ship products to our wonderful customers!
My first recommendation is to get an Amazon Prime account. While you can find shipping supplies at local stores, buying in bulk helps reduce shipping costs. Shopping for bulk shipping supplies on Amazon Prime will also get you free shipping for those supplies, lowering costs even more compared to shopping in stores or buying from websites where a minimum purchase is required for free shipping.
With shipping, there are three parts to each package; Protection, Packaging and Dressing. I've listed my favorite Amazon products for each part of the shipping process.
