Ever find a new with tag item and get super excited! Like score! Major money maker! Only to find later that it needs to be treated for a minor flaw or the tag falls off. What to do? This is where a tagging gun comes in handy.
There are so many available to choose from. The price levels are not too bad either, mine was about $8. You can easily reattach tags to items that need to be thrown in the dryer, dry cleaned, or just reattach tags that won’t stay.
I mainly use the gun for the gifts I include with most of my sales, which is a cute pair of new socks with my personalized ‘Thank you’ card attached. Picture below shows my gift and the gun I use.

Using custom stickers for your packages adds a personal touch.
There are many companies to choose from where you upload a logo and order custom Thank You stickers. While these stickers are great to seal packages, they are not great to hand out for networking. No one wants a thank you sticker.
I choose the more economical side and went with a versatile stamp that can have more uses.
I ordered my custom stamp from https://www.rubberstamps.com/. I make my own thank you stickers using any old name tag labels I can find at the thrift store (saving money here). I also stamp all my boxes on the outside with my stamp. This came in handy when a package accidentally made it to the Post Office with no mailing label, luckily they knew it was my package!
When shipping Priority mail packages for ebay, Mercari and Poshmark, I try my best to use USPS Boxes. Click on the link, make an account and order your boxes. I reorder often before running out. Shipping times can vary, depending on the time of the year, so plan ahead. Here is a list of the ones I keep in stock.
Every reseller uses tissue paper at some point. We all start off using the cute colors and prints. We package, tuck, fold, tie and marvel at our sale. We gently place it in the box and send it on it’s way. Unfolding those sheets is fun. At first. Then, we learn better.
At this point in my reselling journey, keeping costs low is priority. Don’t get me wrong. I still place my items in a bag, seal, and wrap in tissue. It took some time to find bulk tissue. The most economical way I have found (thanks to my husband), is in a bulk roll. The link and picture is below.
The price tag may scare you at first, but, after you do the math it will make sense. I am on my 3rd roll so far. I simply place the roll on top of a small file cabinet thing, I just turn the roll and rip off what I need. No, it’s not a sharp cut, but it saves time and money.
So, if you get tired of unfolding those sheets and constantly running out of tissue, give the bulk roll a try.
