How did you decide to go into business creating vinyl decals & stickers?
Funny you asked. So my wife and I were expecting our first baby in 2011 and were in the market for nursery decor. The easiest and the simplest way to decorate the nursery seemed to be by using wall stickers and decals available online and at our local retail stores. However when we started looking into it, we were shocked to find steep prices and limited selection of such Wall Stickers. That is when the light bulb went off and we decided to take on the plunge. Due my IT and Sales background and my wife’s creativity, this has been a huge success. We at WallStickersUSA strive to provide extremely affordable wall stickers and decals for not only nurseries and kids’ rooms, but also for the rest of the house.
What’s the most difficult thing about running an online vinyl decal website?
To our surprise, this has been an extremely wonderful and smooth journey. Every business can have its own challenges, but we are lucky to have great employees and partners such as ShipStation around to meet any of these problems. The most difficult thing that we have had to do is to keep up with customer demand and inventory.
How has ShipStation helped you with your business?
Using other online postage services is great when you only ship a few items a day but when you have hundreds of customer orders to fulfill on a daily basis, it becomes a huge challenge. As customer demand grew, one of the biggest challenges we faced was how to streamline our shipping process. We were referred to ShipStation by one of our other partners and could not thank them enough. Due to the product profile option available with ShipStation and the batch processing, it has literally reduced our shipping time by 75%. Also, availability of multiple carriers and extremely competitive rates, not only is it convenient but also helps us save quite a bit of money.
What’s your favorite ShipStation feature?
Our favorite ShipStation feature would have to be Product Profiles. With this option, you can preset product weights so when the orders are imported, they are ready to be shipped. In addition, we also like the fact that ShipStation has the ability to import orders from variety of data sources and shopping carts.
