Get a scale that will weigh more than you think you need also. In the beginning I had a little scale & then I ended up branching out & selling ribbon so I had to go buy a new scale. I think I got mine on ebay for about $30 & it goes up to I think about 200 lbs.
I would also suggest once you get into this & are shipping more to get a thermal label printer. I was spending a fortune on paper, ink & tape to attach my labels to the packages. With the thermal printers you don't have ink to deal with & only have to get labels (which you can get for free with ups)
