Crafters and artisans looking to turn their hobby into a business have flocked online to start their own shops on Etsy. This platform is a great way to introduce your handmade goods to people without any working knowledge of eCommerce or marketing. While Etsy handles a lot of the promotional work for you, there are still aspects of your business that require your attention.
One of the most important factors to consider when running an online business is making sure you have enough supplies to keep up with the increase in sales as your Etsy store successfully grows. To help you maintain quality craft supplies at a wholesale cost, shop with Paper Mart for all of your DIY needs.
Embellish Your Products
Once it’s time to list your goods online, it may be appropriate to give them a professional polish with a finishing product—such as stickers, hang tags, and bows, among other embellishments—to create a sophisticated appearance and business-like aplomb. Whether you need a handful of these additions or want to build a large stock to keep on hand, Paper Mart is your one-stop source for any extras your business requires.
Quality Packing Materials
After you’ve perfected your products and listed them on your Etsy storefront, it’s time to focus on how you’ll be shipping them out. How you will deliver your products to your customers depends on the types of items you are selling.
Among our many packaging supplies, the tissue paper varieties at Paper Mart are a popular choice to carefully wrap and protect items. We also have additional cushioning products like bubble mailers, drawstring bags, and foam roll cushioning. No matter how you are shipping your products, you’ll have all the items your Etsy business needs, thanks to our wholesale craft supply inventory.
Secure Pieces with Tape and Twine
No customer wants to receive their purchase mangled and ruined, so ensuring that your products are secure during shipping is just as important as its presentation. To guarantee safe shipping, Paper Mart’s craft supplies include high grade tapes, twines, and string.
When you need something that will keep your packages protected, choose from a selection of polymer strapping or pallet edge protectors. These items are used on the exterior of a package, and can withstand the rigors of shipping.
Shipping Boxes and Containers
Of course, one of the last things you may consider stockpiling is also one of the most important: shipping boxes and containers. The right packaging can make the initial impression to increase brand awareness and ensure customer loyalty. Guaranteeing that your products arrive intact generates a positive impression on clients, and including your company name, logo, and contact information entrenches your business into their memory.
The Success of Your Business
The success of your online business depends on many factors. While presentation and delivery may be factors overlooked by many other Etsy sellers, you can boost your business with just a little care and attention. Shop with Paper Mart today for all of your wholesale craft supplies!
