Tbh you're the one who should be supplying them, if you really believe there's a market, you've already got the use so you can buy bulk with low risk.
I'm just a small retailer, I wouldn't require a pallet. Point is if I were in the UK I could get free shipping on a box of 1000 A4 sheets. But shipping to Ireland is at least €20. I don't have the space or interest in this business, I'm busy enough but all ecommerce, ebay, amazon sellers in Ireland would be wanting to use this product but there is no Irish supplier. Sure, someone is going to have to source the product, invest in stock, setup a website, etc. Just saying I think think there is demand and a gap in the market.
"There's no margin to buy them in and compete with UK suppliers. We buy laser labels from UK for our own use and no one in Ireland can compete on price for <100 boxes, including shipping, nevermind 1000 boxes. Even with sterling as dear as it is now."
I never said a 1000 boxes
A box of 1000 sheets.
