This man buttoned up his second button! Things are getting serious 🧐
What size is your IKEA bag?
Practical suggestions. I’m gonna buy some of these things. The sweater shaver would help so much
I learn a lot from your tutorials. However, I print my shipping label out at nearly no cost aside from the electricity. My ink cartridges I bought for $1.00 at the local bins where I pick up a lot of salable items. My paper, I use paper that has already been printed on. O use the side that hasn't been printed on. Yes it takes me approximately 2 minutes to cut out and tape my shipping label. I use the other half of the paper that I cut the shipping label from to supply a note pad. I have a wooden clipboard with a spring clip at the top to hold the paper in place. Short of is I take the few minutes to do this to "Reduce-Reuse-Recycle". You said that the taping of printed shipping labels on the package "looks stupid." Really? I never took you as someone who gave a fuck what people thought. I'll tell you what really looks STUPID. Is the massive amount of trash just tossed around. Like the woman with YouTube video, "Ship with me." She sits there peeling shipping label and producing massive trash. Yeah, that looks stupid. But nothing is going to be done about it so….. Hairy furface tornado said the same thing about cutting and taping shipping labels, "it looks stupid." No, all that trash floating up and down the coast, that looks stupid.
How does that Rollo Printer work with Poshmark labels printing out the mailing label plus the Order information? I use an 8 & 1/2" x 11" paper to print Poshmark labels. It looks like the Rollo is designed to print on 4" x 6" label paper.
My wife taught me that a steamer, in most situations, is unnecessary. I hardly believed her when she told me but I'll be damned if it's not true. It amazed me when I first tried it.
With a spray bottle, spray a fine spritz or two of room temp water over the wrinkly area and let it sit for a moment and that should do it. Use more water if needed, and you might have to gently pull this way or that to help a stubborn spot. It will definitely wet your clothes and they will have to dry a bit but the same with the steamer.
I haven't tried it on every single fabric or every single wrinkle, but it has worked for me in every everyday situations and she
I bought multiple thermal printers and the labels looked great but THEY WOULD NOT SCAN! Every time I took them to the post office they could never scan them. I messed with the settings for weeks to no avail. I went back to my ink jet. Never had an issue getting labels scanned…
How does it feel you got experimented on?
I heard a quasi Clerks quote! Bunch of savages in this town.
We would love to find a good-quality pilling trimmer. Wal-Mart sold us a POS
I used a mono laser jet for years and instead of tape I used the clear packing list holders, it did make it look more professional.
I burned the shit out of my arm with a steamer, but I have the one you have now and it does what it needs
I just use a regular shaving razer to get rid of piling on clothes.
Austin Texas is bag free so the Ikea bags are great for when you check out and when you have to provide your own.
I went 6 years on ink, cutting and taping, without a thermal printer. Then found a used rollo and I can safely say I should have bought it 6 years sooner haha
A cloth tape measure and insole/shoe size guides (if you sell shoes/boots) are also invaluable…
Can you please provide a link to the thermal printer and the roll of labels that you purchase? I am seriously considering switching to this kind of printer. I am just a part-time seller though. Do you think it's still worth it for me? I ship about 20 items a week.
What do you do with clothes that don’t sell? I see all the bins behind you.
Seems like a lot of work. I usually just drop the price lol
Hello! Can you please explain why we need a scale?
For anyone who tries to use the free ups label for a non ups package mail fraud and also theft aren’t fun in court
I want to thank you for the manifesto, bro. Very inspiring if you want to know the truth.
I'm only halfway through this video but I don't think I'm going to hear what I'm waiting to hear…it's something that becomes mandatory quite quickly. Wrinkle Release spray, particularly the Fabreze Extra Strength in the non-aerosol spray bottle. Works wonders and literally turns wrinkled garments smooth in moments. Check it out and let me know what you think!
The box cutter that you paid a dollar for can be shaved into around 1/3 of the price. If you have a harbor freight in your area, or even possibly order them online, they are $.39 each and occasionally on sale for even less. The lint rollers (at the end of the season, not exactly sure which season, I apologize), but at the Dollar General I picked up some of the lint rollers at 75% off, so they were a quarter each and I bought everyone they had. 😃
How important is a YouTube channel for a reseller?
i have a used Zebra 2844 thermal printer that I bought on ebay about 5 years ago. I've printed over 6500 labels. I buy the rolls of label for it but it doesn't cost that much. I love it. Best investment ever.
Whats the name of that printer again?
Love my rollo
Love my Rollo. Also have a Dymo that I use for Amazon. But the Rollo is excellent. I take it on the road with me and beat it to death and it just keeps going. Tailors Tape is a must (tape measure) flexible, small, easy to take a collar to cuff measurement bending it around the shoulder. I use a seam ripper once In a while and I cut out shoulder pads if needed. Needle and thread to tights button holes when needed or to see on a button. And everything goes in a poly bag as soon as it’s listed. So a good supply of clear polybags is a must for me. Also for suits or high end clothes I wrap in tissue paper. It impresses the customer. Especially when I’m selling a ladies evening jacket for $100-200. Presentation is important. Good vid. You do a great service.
What made you choose clothing?
Lol there’s been a fabric shaver at the home ave greedwill for weeks. I might have to pick it up now after watching this video.
Can you d oh V a demo of how to for Rollo printer one day. Ty
Do you have an affiliate link to the printer ? You have convinced me. I have wanted to get one for a long time.
