    Smile Where can i buy Wholesale engravable items, glass, metal, plastics

    Hi everyone, I'm new here. I'm opening a personalized gift shop in November and in trying to find wholesale suppliers besides Alibaba and Dh gate with actual wholesale price and variety. Do you guys have any suggestions?

    Thanks for your help

    Glass, if you have a local Dollar Tree, has the best engravable glassware. Will ship free to local store and at a buck a piece, can't be beat.
    Other items, I use JDS Industries, Johnson Plastics (Both have several warehouses across the country, hopefully one is close to you.) And BF Plastics for sheet goods.
    Southeastern Plastics for some sheet goods also.

    Thanks for the information John. I appreciate it. I will definitely be using dollar tree. I've ordered from jds already and I just wanted to have more suppliers. Thanks again!

    and I'll add Marco Awards...

    I friend of one of my kids stopped by, needs 3 each 40-plate perpetual plaques, to match some existing ones. I was surprised to find that neither Johnson nor JDS have a 40-plate plaque, at least that I could find. Marco has 2 versions...

    I also like Marco simply because they have a warehouse 5 miles from me

    Take a look at the Awards and Personalization Association website. It has excellent digital and print resources showing a comprehensive list of wholesale suppliers of many of the items you are seeking.

    Locate your local Restaurant Supply dealer. Glassware and supplies, mine is bargreen.com

    I made a really nice perpetual trophy for the NBRSA using a 2 inch thick cutting board. Engraved the logo and a few words at the top and screwed a bunch of brass name plates to fill the board. Pretty hefty trophy board indeed and looked pretty darn good. The reason I'm posting this is because it was about half the cost....a bit more trouble, but half the cost.
