Staples.com currently has a buy 2 get 1 free deal on Avery labels, including 8160 (1 x 2 5/8, 750 count). Basically 33% off. $11.99 regular price, $23.98 for 3 packs. Pick up in store or deliver. Look on their website under "Deals".

I use these for labeling my BL stock, and these happen to be the right size for FBA too. They say "Inkjet" but I've used them with my laserprinter as well.

I was about to pitch my NES classic but a quick trip to the store is so worth it for $10.  Thanks for the share!


Do not make me come over there and slap you upside your head. :lol:

I wanted to say the same thing. My boys play on my old NES that lives at my parents house.

This might be very old news, but I've been doing this a while now and only just found out. The adhesive envelopes for putting your printer paper labels into, can be ordered for free as a small business customer! Very cool.

Where do you order them for free?

Quick question.

When entering measurements for a box, do you put 16" or 17" for a 16.5" box?

 

Annoys me that I can't put It To the 10th of an inch.

I round up, unless that puts me in the dimensional weight and then I will round one measurement down but only if the actual dimensions work out to fall under the dimensional cutoff. I have one box size this is an issue for. I haven’t found clear guidance on this, but I assume rounding up is the conservative approach.

Whoops! I meant to say for Canadians shipping with Canada Post! Sounds like it's a thing in the USPS too though.

They also give them out for free at the post office if you ask politely. The last time they handed me about a hundred of them from under the counter. :)

Ive been struggling to find small boxes for shipping. My wife has just sorted me out with this lot and has made an arrangement with the manager of a local shoe shop to pick up weekly. Better get selling!!

If Canadian post is the same as USPS (?@gregpj )
Then these are used for customs slips.

The ones from Canada Post fit either a shipping label printed online for domestic shipping or international shipping - they are the same size. The Canada Post shipping labels contain the customs information directly on the shipping label.

If you know someone who sells LuLaRoe, they receive their inventory in double-walled boxes.  The dimensions are 20x16x14 and 20x16x10.  Free double-walled boxes!

The larger fits multiples of everything smaller than the $100+ sets quite well for FBA purposes.
