I have submitted my distributor applications to Magazine Exchange and Peach State. I'll let you know what happens and any issues that I run into.
Its kind of odd because I dont have a retail location, nor credit cards or bank accounts in the business name at this point. I don't have trade references either. I talked to someone at Peach State and he basically told me it didn't matter.
Any other distributors that anyone knows of. And I know this much, your card shops are generally robbing you. There are many shops that charge reasonable prices, but others are just gouging. I've seen some sell sheets.
