  2. Looking for supplier to be a drop-shipper as follows:
    1. Make + label 5-gal non-food buckets (small runs), 100-500 at a time and ship to me (small lots, no dock) and larger orders to Amazon for distribution
    2. Receive buckets & labels, put labels on buckets (buckets prepped / cleaned of mold-release agents, ready for adhesive).. ship as above
    3. Supply buckets to me, cleaned as noted above so no secondary process is needed.. I will assemble and ship

  3. Hello, I have a U.S. patent for a integrated roller ramp molded to the underside of a five gallon bucket lid that holds paint. I have prototypes and i have attended a local trade show. Every one that seen my booth was amazed and asked me when are the paint stores going to start using the new lids. I said as soon as I can stop getting the run around from bucket manufacturers. I was told when one company starts using thim thin all paint companies will follow. Because successful business doesn’t want to be left behind with outdated materials. If anyone wants to see my invention/patent email me at [email protected]

  4. I would like to offer my submission of the Pale Pal, which is a strap that goes around the bottom of a bucket and provides a second handle. I think it would be a good product for your stores. I presently hold a design patent #US D704,937 S. The description is a polypropylene strap that goes around the bottom of a large bucket or a small pail. It is operated with a cam lock buckle with a handle sewn on the opposite side of the cam lock buckle. It is adjustable to fit any size bucket or any shape container. The list of possible uses is endless. Some examples are; paint, hydraulic oil, food, water, farm, kennels, gardening, construction, factories, grocery stores, etc… This is especially suited for the handicapped and elderly. To view a video of this item please go to YouTube and search “pailpal 720”.
