Topic: Valve Bag Supply (11 msgs / 208 lines)
Hi All,
I'm in need of ordering more valved plastic coffee bags than SW will provide for me.  After doing some googling, I found some suppliers that want you to buy 1000 or more bags.  
Does anyone have recommendations for places I can order more than 25 but less than 1000 bags?  
Thanks in advance for all your help!

When I send coffee to people, the zip-lock feature is not important. for 
those occasions, I use a heat sealing bag (which I use my iron to 
close). I'm in Canada, but I use a place that mails to the US as well, 
called Greenbeanery.cahttp://tinyurl.com/hly59I pay $39.95 for 100 bags 10 ounces bags. The bags come in a larger size 
as well (one pound), and you can buy 1 or 100 or 300 of each kind. The 
postage to the US is about the same as the postage from Toronto (where 
the company is located) to my home in Alberta. I have no idea why.
I buy my ziploc bags from SM. If you order each time you get coffee, 
they add up quickly.

Thanks Mike.
I made a distinction here for several reasons:
**  SM does NOT sell the kind of bags I mentioned at all;
**  I clearly stated that I get all my ziploc bags from SM; and,
**  Tom and Maria are pretty clear that they have no desire to be our 
go-to guys for bags, but instead make them available to us, in limited 
quantities, as a courtesy.
That being said, it might be considered as a first step down a slippery 
slope, and, in retrospect, you're right I should have replied off list, 
since they also sell things that SM does supply (though when you look at 
the cost, they certainly are not competitors in my world).
Thanks for speaking up, Mike.

Ahhh, c'mon miKe, place another order for those beautiful valve bags and =
me know when they are available. I am running slightly low again and you
really did a great job on the previous bags you had made. As usual, the
minimum order will be way over the SM max order and all will be off-list =
not to disrupt coffee talk. 
All of the coffee I roast and give away in those bags comes from our =
and hostess, and the more bags of coffee I give away the more green I =
from SweetMarias. That doesn't even count the 1% of the people I give =
to that are so impressed they actually become home roasters and by their
stuff from SM too.

The original question said he wanted more bags than SM was willing to
sell him.  Wouldn't that remove it from the "competitors"

Sheesh, enough!! I was clearly wrong because the commercial website I 
referenced did, in fact, sell products that SM also sells. I am 99% sure 
miKe would not have said anything if I had supplied a reference to a 
place that only sold bulk bags.

Hey Vicki,
The list just gets this way every now and then, and people move on. Please
don't take any of this personally, just consider yourself officially one of
the family. Most of us that have posted here have at one time or another
really appreciated an edit function for our posts, but........

..... but the family edits it for you...  Welcome to the family!
You're one of us...
