Anyone else have trouble coming up with business names?  

Comment by David Clark on May 18, 2013 at 9:59pm

If any one is looking for cigar boxes, I have a couple of good sources,

dick@chiefcatoonah.com

mark.winstead@gmail.com

If you mention my name they will give you a better deal and combine shipping. Mark has a store on ebay, cigar boxes unlimited. Please, mention my name.

Thanks!

I would go to the school and talk to the Princibal, and take the units with you to show her. It is no big deal....

Any ideas about this would be appreciated. I am working on a way to get some 1 stringers into some grade school kids hands, as a music project or something. I have a couple that I am going to donate and just see what happens. Help, ideas, please. Dave Clark

Thanks for inviting me Ted. I'm just starting my business in cbg building (and effects pedals and tube amps). I live in Holland. I hope we all can share some of the 'business knowledge' we learn along the way.
Cheers,
Servaas

Hey Ted I just tried to order boxes at you link and with shipping they are WAY to expensive they wanted almost $19.00 to ship putting the total to over 40 bucks

Thanks guys! I really appreciate it.

I used to use U-Line for boxes, but recently found these on Amazon.  A better size (36 x 12 x 4) than U-Line, cheaper per unit and you only have to order 20, not 25. Click link.

I dont know of a source to buy only 1 or 2, but you might be able to go to a guitar store and see what they throw out.  A florist may have good size boxes too.  I learned long ago that making my own boxes is a huge waste of time.

Here's where I order bubble wrap:

Large bubbles

Small bubbles

U LINE .COM-has every type, size box and packing materials. I use their box; but get bubble wrap from lowes/home depot loosen up the strings and i normally wrap 3 times--no problems to date
