HI again ~ I told you I had more questions.

Does anyone know of any co-ops running for shipping supplies? I'm IDN of tyvek envelopes. I remember one at one point, but now I can't find it.

Thanks!
Meagan

Meagan, I've always gotten mine from a guy on ebay. not tyvek, but lightweight plastic.
They say "fashion" on them but I dont care, they were cheap and they keep out the moisture and dirt

I get Tyvek envelopes from Office Depot or Staples. I don't think they are very expensive, but I also don't know how the price compares to the co-op.

I've been contemplating doing a co-op for tyvek envelopes, but nto sure if I will yet or not.

But, when I do order them I get from http://www.uline.com. WAY cheaper than Office Max and Staples!!

Well, they don't have the plastic envelopes BUt boxes weren't that bad. My customers will be getting boxes from me with other co's printed on the side b/c they are way cheaper than buying the plain boxes :LOL I can get some 12x12x12 for .25 each b/c they say mustard on the side :LOL

I think I will also offer a discount on your next order if you send me the box back empty Think that would work?

hmmm, I wonder if I could get away with making dh's co. pay for them, they pay for everything, I could say I had to ship him a bunch of crap overseas when he goes back to the Netherlands :LOL(ok I wouldn't really do that, but I think it's funny)
