Shouldn't really be in the News section, but it would probably be a lot easier to just contact the companies directly and explain your position than to wait around on a forum waiting for other people to say the same. I can't see it being any harder than saying "Hey, I need to be stocked for _______, how much will it cost for you to supply me?". Unless you are in a really awkward location that delivery trucks can't get to, really shouldn't be that difficult at all.

It's real easy just contact the suppliers you want, kee, dye, etc... And they will send you all the paper work you need.

Another thing to look at are Drop Shipments. Most manufacturers, for a fee, can drop ship product directly from the factory to your customer. Your customer would only receive a packing slip, no invoice. With this method, you dont have to worry about stocking as much and can get products to your customers quicker in some cases.
