New Year - new packaging


One of the things I've reviewed this year is my packaging. Wrapping every order in tissue had become very time consuming so I decided to have a rethink. I like the ides of an order arriving and the customer having the  anticipation of unwrapping it before giving as a gift. However, the tissue is then discarded and it seemed much more sensible to find a solution which was re-usable so I've had my thinking cap on. (It doesn't really matter with the cards so much as they come complete with an envelope) My vinyl stickers can be reused if removed carefully - so I've started packing in these lovely turquoise blue kraft bags with a little 'with love' sticker. If opened carefully the bag can then be resealed - some ribbon and a tag added if wanted - and the gift is all ready to give. Cards will go in a white bag with a sticker which can be carefully removed and used as an envelope seal if required. I also quite like the idea of red bags and 'with love and kisses' stickers for valentines....
