A post of limited interest to knitters today but great interest to me!
I have new postal scales!
Since starting the business I have been weighing things on my trusty kitchen scales. However I decided it was about time I invested in some new digital scales.
This is mainly because I am trying to make my postal charges for mail order sales as economical as possible. The Royal Mail was always my first choice – easy to use and the lady in the post office is very nice. But since Royal Mail have increased their prices, they are just too expensive.
The scales have standy up bit to stop tubes rolling off, not that I have any tubes at the moment, and I can weigh in different units.
I am trying different couriers so I need to be able to weigh parcels accurately. I’m still working on how to send parcels in an affordable way to places other than the UK – if any of you have any ideas, do let me know!
