The Ultimate LuLaRoe Business Supply List

As you may or may not know, I recently launched my LuLaRoe business and I have finally pulled together all of the supplies that I need (want is more accurate sometimes) to get my business rolling!

Now, I do plan to sell online and in person so I have purchased supplies for BOTH options. I'm going to share with you everything that I have pieced together to get ready. Please note, this post does include affiliate links with Amazon.

Here it goes...

Packing Materials

I want my packages to stand out. It's very important to me that I take a few extra minutes to package things up neatly and really put that little extra layer of love into my packages. Perhaps I'm this way because I am a life-long Johnny Cupcakes fans and his personal touches have always inspired me! 

I purchased some Thank You stickers and tissue paper to wrap up items in. Then, I also picked up some super cute pink poly mailers. These mailers were so perfect for my business. The bags say "Keep Calm and Go Shopping." How perfect is that for merging my blogging brand and my clothing business? 


Photography Supplies

Next up, I picked up a few things to make my photography better. Here's what I suggest!

I picked up a backdrop to make my images look prettier. It was a small expense and totally worthwhile. The backdrop is matte which is going to help a lot with reducing glare from my lighting kit and flash. The whitewashed wood looks so clean.

I was happy that I already owned a lighting kit and I'll be using it a lot for my product photos! I have the lighting kit shown below and I've been very happy with it. it's super easy to set up and take down, which is huge for my since I live in an apartment.

Next up is my dress form. Although it takes more time, I seriously prefer images where the clothing is placed on a dress form. I picked one up for a pretty decent price. I wanted to get a solid white one so that all patterns and prints would photograph nicely. This thing was a breeze to build and it's super sturdy.

Lastly, I made some overlay images to make my photos cleaner and easier to navigate for my customers. I posted them up over on my Etsy shop if you're interested in editing yours with them as well! They're a simple PNG file and I have them for all styles and sizes! 

In Home Supplies

Next up, here's the list of things that I purchased for use in my at-home set-up as well as for in-home pop-up parties. All of these things are moved back and forth as needed.

I picked up some sizing rounders for my racks. I got plain white ones. I found that the 100 pack was a decent set for starting out with. Then, I purchased some labels to decorate them with some cute LLR backgrounds. I picked up these labels. The hole wasn't quite as big as my sizing dividers so I had to trim it up some with a craft knife. It was a quick and simple project even with having the extra step.

Other Items

Other than the items mentioned above, I picked up the following:

I think that about sums it up! If I find that I forgot anything, I'll make sure to come back and update the list!!

Please let me know if you have any questions! I'm happy to help you out!
