There are certain things as a reseller you simply can’t be without…. and finding quality products at good prices can take time and effort – we hope these links save you time and hopefully money too 🙂
As well as packing supplies there are also many time saving tools we have come across over the years that we use daily and we can highly recommend, scroll further down to see those. There is also a section of FBA supplies we use at the end.
Please browse below and click the links to check out any of the products 🙂
We get through so many of these it is crazy, D1 is the size we use the most, it fits 1 x DVD or CD perfectly, will also fit most small paperbacks and countless other small items 🙂
These Larger Size F3 Jiffy bags are perfect to send 2 DVDs side by side (and still qualify as a large letter – perfect for many other items too.
We have had a few tape guns over the years and in our experience it pays to spend a few extra pounds to get a quality one that is reliable and won’t break within a few months.
A tape gun is of no use without tape, it pays to buy in bulk and save on the per roll price – below are 2 options for both brown and clear tape.
‘Poly Mailers’ or ‘Polybags’
Theseare a fantastically versatile product, available in many sizes, we use them primarily for clothing but also for many other items.
I have included several links to cover most useful sizes 🙂
We use this a lot for shipping board games, as long as the box is sturdy enough wrapping it in packing paper does the job. Ideally you need to use at least 90gsm paper (the link is for 90gsm paper)
Bubble wrap & Jiffy Roll:
Perfect for securely wrapping fragile items and providing cushioning during transit, we find the Jiffy Rolls last for ages in comparison with bubble wrap but use both for different items.
Black cling film:
I recently started using this stuff and it is a godsend! so versatile and useful, perfect for wrapping awkward shaped items, cheap and effective, cannot recommend it enough!
Royal Mail Size Guide:
if you are shipping with Royal Mail you need to be able to accurately work out if your items qualify for Large letter or Letter size to avoid over-paying or even worse under-paying and leaving your customer with a fee to pay!
These inexpensive size guides are the perfect solution.
Sticky Label Remover:
We simply LOVE this product… we have all picked up an item with a price sticker on which simply will not budge, so frustrating – well stress no more – one squirt of this stuff – leave it for a few minutes and it will slide off with ease…..
A general purpose scale is essential in the office to weigh items when listing to ensure we are charging enough shipping costs, the Salter one below is small but well built and perfect for items up to 5kg.
The heavy duty scale below we use for anything beyond 5kg (and up to 200kg) including our huge FBA boxes. It has a handy remote digital display which makes it easy to use even with very large boxes.
We use the pictured professional lights, we are really pleased with these and they have helped improve our picture quality immensely. I think these are a great price too, you get 2 x lights with tripods and umbrellas/diffusers, plus 2 powerful bulbs and a handy case.
We find that a size 8-10 female mannequin is the most versatile, you can still display larger sizes on it and also most teen items, these are excellent quality for the price.
Fuzz Off – Clothing Lint & bobble remover:
These are cheap (less than £4 delivered at the time of writing this!) device is simply brilliant – it can transform a bobbly jumper or cardigan in minutes and really add value to your items
Andrea uses these clever plastic devices. They fit inside shoes to give them shape when you are taking pictures.
So for example if you have some strappy sandals that do not hold their shape and look awful in pictures, pop one of these in and you can show your shoes as they are meant to look. Adding value and saleability to your listings with one simple step 🙂
Such a simple idea but so effective and amazingly cheap too.
Barcode labels (for labelling your products before sending in). These labels are super cheap and are the perfect size and work with the Amazon FBA interface – The link below is for a box of 2700 labels on A4 sheets at 27 labels per page
Suffocation warning labels for Amazon FBA
If you are going to send bagged products into Amazon you will need these 🙂 They work out at about 1p each too !!
Large double wall boxes
I tend to ship my stock up in large boxes – I ship up to 15kg at a time and need quality sturdy boxes.
These are not only double walled but large enough to cope with even the largest board game, guitar hero, plush toy or whatever you are sending in.
They come in a pack of 10 – Double Wall – 30″ x 20″ x 20″

Small clear bags
These bags are the ones I tend to use the most, great for media items you need to bag like CDs with a card sleeve, some video games or DVDs etc that may require bagging. This link is to 100 x clear bags 7″ x 9″ 175mm x 225mm

Sealing stickers for media & board games etc
These are amazing – I have tried several methods for sealing media (CD’s DVDs etc), board games and other items and these stickers are by far the best solution I have found.
They do the job quickly, neatly and securely 🙂 And they are super cheap!!!
The link below is for a pack of 102 x 25mm Round Seal Stickers – Transparent.
I use this larger size too particularly on board games, these are 38mm .
Clear self seal poly bags for clothes and FBA:
These poly bags are great for most items of clothing. We use them for T-Shirts, Jumpers, Dresses, Shirts, Trousers etc. You would need a larger size for coats, bedding and any larger items.
They also double up for Amazon FBA as they have a printed suffocation warning on them:
