Shipping Supplies For Etsy- A List From Sellers


Figuring out where to buy shipping supplies for your online business can be difficult because of all of the choices available. There’s also the possibility that you could be missing out on lower prices or better quality by not knowing what the options are.

I asked the members of the Artisan Shopping Directory to give me their suggestions for where to buy different types of shipping materials. They suggest the following businesses and suppliers. Remember that you should comparison shop, because prices for the same size items can vary wildly between suppliers, and some charge shipping that really adds up!

This is obviously not an exhaustive list, but it’s based on businesses that members have purchased from.
