    I’m looking to start my own DIY juice. Any recommendations for suppliers? I’m in New Jersey, if it makes any difference to know that :)

    All suggestions appreciated.

    That list will get pretty long... I'll start with some of my favs.

    www.bullcityflavors.com (BCF) They have a big selection of flavors, pg, vg, and other supplies. They don't sell nicotine due to nasty taxes in NC. @wllmc, @Roundhouse work there and are active in the forum. This is my favorite flavor source. VU6 code for 6% off
    www.ecigexpress.com (ECX) They have everything and are based in WA. UNDERGROUND10 for 10% off.
    www.nicotineriver.com they have everything and are based in CA
    www.wizardlabs.us they have everything and are based in FL
    www.nudenicotine.com they have nic, pg, vg, and their own line of vg based flavors. They are based in CA
    wholesale.heartlandvapes.com they have everything and are based in OK. They have a good selection of inexpensive empty bottles.

    There are lots of others that I'm not remembering right now. I'm sure others will add to your list.

    Here's a hint for just starting out in DIY. Pick a couple of recipes that sound good to you and just buy the flavors needed. That way you will have some good juice to vape while experimenting.

    Hello Steve, is it just around the country with free shipping when achieving the 50$ total purchase?

    Best advice is check the Website for shipping policies and you could at least take advantage of the Labor Day Sale. I think it is 20% off but I am not sure I got the email the other day.

    If you can get shipping deals at Amazon many flavor companies have an amazon store. TFA, ooo and Cap are a who come to mind.

    I didn't know about shipping deals so far, this is a good news to read. And I just checked it out the prices are doubled or they also do some promos or prices get lower?

    Too bad the shipping is a deal breaker. I am not familiar with International shipping and you are lucky they ship to your country.

    Even at double prices if amazon free shipping applies to your country it is still more cost effective in your case. The glamour flavors you mentioned may be rebranded flavors from TFA for an example. Doesn't hurt to ask.

    I'm lucky on that part but the shipping is really a deal breaker so if I'm desperate enough there is a chance or I'll just travel around PH to seek for treasure cons from CAP, INW, FA, TFA etc.

    Is double post forbidden?

    Rebranded flavors ? What are they or there is a specific brand name for it?

    You should look into if the shipping actually goes up if you were to order a lot more. With the last sale they had I wound up having to add to my order to get the free shipping and by the time I was done I got almost 2 gallons of PG/VG and Nicotine.

    Try to pm hiclass over on ECF, he may be able to help. I don't think he's over here but I could be wrong. Forget it he's from Malaysia. :facepalm: Someone I've chatted with was from the Philippines. If I remember who I'll let you know. Maybe start a thread calling out to your countrymen.

    Some vendors put their label on another company's flavors.

    2 GALLONS!?! Holy cow, that's a big batch you making there. I'll look into this whenever I'm prepared to have my experiments in big batches. Thank you so much for all the suggestions. I'm just a beginner but as much as possible I wanted to have a reliable materials on the way.

    I would be happy if you can remember and tell me his/her name. I already contacted some vaping friends who have good connections but sadly they recommend me some shop where using a different name, what I mean is I don't know if they are using a china or unsafe kind of cons.

    Actually not big batches, my regular mixing sessions is 240 ML's of my Tobacco Blends (4/60) alone so basically 30 batches. I actually am thinking of doing a couple of large bottles, just haven't had to time. Need my tobaccos so it will be in the next few days. I will do a couple of 60's so I can have them ready in a few days.

    I use some flavors from China. They are good, I wouldn't let that stop you from trying them.

    Are you selling them or just for your own experiments etc? Can I have some tips or suggestions when starting diy?

    Can I have some names for these China cons name so I can look into it for consideration and what is your feedback with China cons pg vg?

    I am not an e-Liquid manufacturer and I only make for my own personal use. Start your DIY journey with simple recipes and mix small testers in larger bottles than needed to leave room for corrections.

    China cons? I don't know what you are meaning by cons. They are simple Super Concentrates. I like the pineapple and mandarin very much.

    Don't know, they are just listed asSC on US sites. The bottles are labeled Super Concentrate, no branding really. I've read good things about Dekang flavor, might look into them; they've been around a long time.

    I think the majority of vendors like ECX or vaping zone use the SC name for the "Flavor Express" concentrates from China

    I think if I can order those SC from China it would be easy, instead of getting it from US or wherever it is. My only problem regarding this is the shipping and I also wanted to be assured that the Cons I'll be getting is safe and taste awesome.

    I like the ones I've tried and the pineapple is in my top 3 for pineapple. Bit of a pa junkie.
