Im in the process of starting my own shop and i've realized its going to be a significant cost to start up. Im looking into what I will be shipping in, business cards or post card to include in the package with a coupon code to encourage repeat sales.... Where do you order shipping supplies and other misc shipping related items?? Im trying to find the most cost effective way to go about doing this.

I do have an etsy shop but I do a ton of shipping. Printing postage online is always cheaper. You will need a scale (a kitchen scale works) I got mine off amazon for like $20-25. I order polymailers off amazon too (the thin white plastic bags that are super strong) You can order flat rate boxes for free from USPS. If you want sticky labels for shipping you can either buy those (again amazon) or if you're lazy like I am make a free UPS account and they will send a shit ton for free. They say UPS use only on them but I use them all the time with no issues.

When I was doing my diaper cakes I used vista print for business cards. Best when you can catch a sale!
