Are you a regular eBay vendor? If you sell more than a couple things a week then you are running a real business and any real business know it must do all it can to reduce expenses. Here is a way to trim a little bit off of your shipping expenses.
Things You Will NeedItems you will need to implement the b-flute shipping method. By the way this method is the absolute best way of making book mailers inexpensively.
Heavy Gauge Stapler and Staples
Tape Gun and Tape
Step 1This will work for any small item. It is especially good for delicate items as it keeps them secure in the package. I will use a book for the example for simplicity.
Take you book and measure out the b-flute so that it wraps around twice. Take the item or book, wrap it in the plastic wrap (best to buy it at Costco). Wrap the book with your b0flute and cut to size. Clamp it down so that you can apply the tape across the seem. Remove the clamp and staple the ends shut. Use your home PC to print out the address. I use the cutting board for this to give it a nice clean edge. Use the tape gun again to apply the shipping address to the package.Imagine trimming your packaging costs by half. Once you make the initial investment making these corrugated mailers will save you money every time you ship something. It may not always be easy to increase revenue but if you look hard, cutting expenses can be relatively easy.
