In today’s post, I’m sharing with you the Star Wars Rebels Party bundle that I made over a year ago and recently sold out of. Plus, I’ll tell you about the company that I’m now using for my image editing.
This is a 5-piece Star Wars Rebels party kit made up of plates, napkins and decorations. I bought all of the supplies at Walmart.
When I first made the bundle, I sent five into Amazon and they sold pretty fast at $29.95 each. Right after that, I went back to Walmart and bought the supplies for three more party kits. Unfortunately, only one sold.
I’ve been sitting on the last two for over a year so I lowered the price and ran a free sponsored ad for 2 days with my promotional credits. They finally sold and now I won’t be paying any Long Term Storage Fees on them. 🙂
Star Wars Rebels Party Bundle – 5 Items: 9 Plates, 7 Plates, Napkins, Birthday Banner and Swirl Decorations
Buy Cost: $13.15
Selling Price: $22.25
Net Profit after Fees: $22.25 (sale price) – $7.40 (fees) – $13.15 (buy cost) = $1.70
I’m not too excited about my profit, but at least a 13% ROI is better than the .01% that I earn in interest from my savings account. Also, at least now I have $30 more to purchase better inventory with.
Unless I find the bundle pieces at a lower price, I’m not planning on selling this bundle again. However, I hope that maybe a few of you can find the supplies at a low price and keep the bundle going.
The bundle hasn’t gone away yet though because there are two other Sellers on the listing. They are both selling it at very high prices:
After doing that Star Wars bundle, I made a sponge bundle and then I quit doing bundles up until recently.
Image Files for Bundles: If you don’t like making them, then outsource it!
This month, I made a couple of Back to School bundles. As you may know, whenever you create your own bundle or create a new product listing, you have to provide product images that have a pure white background. I know how to do that and even wrote a blog post on how to do that using Photoshop Elements, but I can’t stand doing that task at all.
I like them because they did a great job, they have a turnaround time of 24 hours or less and their $1.45 per-image price is well worth the 10 to 30 minutes per-image time that I saved from not having to process them myself.
In my first order with them, I submitted 6 images and paid $4.35 for all of them. Believe me, that was the BEST $4.35 that I spent in a long time!
*The first three were free, the last three were $1.45 each.
I highly recommend giving Pixelx a try if creating the white background isn’t your favorite task to do either. They have an “Amazon” option so you don’t even have to give them Amazon’s specifications. There’s no charge to test them out as your first 3 images are free!

Now that I don’t have to worry about creating the image files, I’m planning on getting into bundles again. If you’re interested in learning more about bundles, here are a few blog posts that should help you with getting started:
