Swarovski crystals have a lot of different uses. They can be used to add a little bling to your nails, add sparkle to your shoes or clothing, or you can use them to create unique, stunning jewellery. Whatever you use them for, Swarovski crystals are a beautiful and affordable way to show off your individual style.
When you’re buying Swarovski crystals, you typically have two options – to buy them in single packs or to buy them in wholesale packs. Here, you’ll discover how to choose between the two.
Consider what you’ll be using them for
When trying to determine whether to buy wholesale or single packs, the first thing you should consider is what you plan on using the crystals for. Are you using them as a one-off to add a little glamour to your shoes? Or will you be creating large quantities of Swarovski crystal-embellished products?
The frequency with which you plan on using them will determine whether it’s better to buy in bulk or not. If you won’t get around to using the crystals that often, it’s probably best to opt for single packs instead. That way, the crystals won’t fade or become damaged over time.
Are you selling your Swarovski creations?
Whether you plan on using Swarovski crystals as a hobby, or to sell your creations, will also determine which pack size you should buy. If you’re selling your goods, it’s probably going to make more sense to buy Swarovski crystal wholesale packs. This could save you a small fortune, especially if your business becomes successful.
If you’re just using them for your own purposes, single packs may prove to be more affordable.
How much could you save?
Of course, the best way to determine which size pack you’ll need is to work out how much you’re likely to save. There would be no point buying in bulk if you’re not making much of a saving!
Some Swarovski crystal wholesalers require you to order a certain amount in order to qualify. At Bluestreak Crystals, we offer wholesale packs for our entire crystal collection. We also offer trade accounts for those who buy over £2500 worth of wholesale products each month. The amount you could save with our trade account will depend upon how much you order.
The majority of the time, wholesale Swarovski crystal packs can be the better option in terms of money-saving. However, it's important to keep the above tips in mind when making a decision.
