Creating Memories – Selling Wholesale Scrap Booking Supplies


Over the past several years there has been an increase in scrap booking. Basically, the old scrap book with just pictures has taken on a new, creative and fun look as individuals create stories and themes throughout the scrap book. Scrap booking requires more than just tape and pictures. The variety of supplies used to create a truly one-of-a-kind memory book can be found in hobby shops, flea markets, or just about anywhere.

If you are interested in starting a business that caters to scrap bookers or other creative artists, you can find the supplies you must carry from a variety of wholesale suppliers, both online and locally. You may decide to sell your wares in person or online. If you decide to sell in person, the wholesale supplier can send large quantities of the supplies for you to have in stock. While this is convenient for your customers to stop in and buy immediately, this can have an impact on your cash flow. You need to pay for the products up front. If the supplies do not sell, you may not be able to return them and you will have lost that money.

If you sell over the internet, you will want to look for a supplier who will drop ship the order directly to the customer. In this type of relationship, the customer makes the order and pays you. The wholesaler ships the supplies directly to the customer and then you pay for the products. In other words, you do not need to pay anything up front. In addition, you are not stuck with any unsold inventory.

When working with a wholesaler who drop ships, be sure that they are reputable and have a good track record for on-time delivery and accuracy in the orders. While they are the ones shipping the product, it is your company’s image that the customer sees. In other words, it is your reputation that could suffer from poor customer service on the part of the wholesale company.

Scrap books are special gifts. A lot of care, thought and design goes into creating these masterpieces. Your business can be a part of the magic that is created.
