While it's free to search for party supplies on Google, note that the suppliers listed are not vetted. Make sure they are a legitimate business before you place a huge order with them to prevent fraud. More on that later.

Check local business listings directory

Of course, you'll be limited to options in your locale. You can, however, go the extra mile to source for one that best suits your need.

Finding trusted suppliers

To avoid fraud, vet every supplier with these four steps:

Contact the supplier and verify their address

True wholesalers will provide their phone number and address on their website. Call them and Google their address to make sure it’s a real business.

Check your supplier’s reputation and track record

Keep an eye out for long-term suppliers who have been in business at least 10 years. As an extra precaution, call their customers to get real reviews.

Purchase and inspect their products

Order samples to assess their product quality, packaging care, and shipping times. This helps you understand how strong a supplier is before you make a bulk purchase.

Call your supplier early and often to make sure they have excellent support. If their service department is lacking, it will hurt your customer service as well.
