really?

BBTS is now pre-ordering stickers from reprolabels,.

thats great for reprolabels to get out there and make more money for themselves im all for that. but why would anyone order from bbts when they can order directly for MUCH cheaper?

just something i noticed and wanted to share.

Re: really?

Well, BBTS has better exposure then Repro Label. People on TF fora know about Repro Label but BBTS reaches a much wider audience. More traffic to BBTS means more exposure for Repro Label. It's a win-win for BBTS and repro label.

Re: really?

there's only about ~$3 markup per item which is essentially what repolabels would have charged you for shipping, and adding a 0 weight item to another order from BBTS would incur $0 additional shipping charges, so it kind of even's out (although it would be dumb to purchase only reprolabels from BBTS). Personally I think it's a smart move for reprolabels.

Re: really?

From a business stand point, it is great for Reprolabels to open themselves up to a wider audience.

Re: really?

I like the idea too. I've never ordered any more than one set of Reprolabels at a time, so it always hurts to have to pay the shipping. But if I can just throw in a set here and there when I order something from BBTS, it would hurt a lot less.

Re: really?

they are, you can email them and set up a pick up. They have a shop where they drop off the stickers and you leave the cash with them when you pick them up. Well, thats what they told me at TFCON last summer.
