Packaging

When I send an item to a customer, I like to dress it up with pretty and/or clever packaging. I'll wrap it in tissue to look like a giant candy. Or fold it in an origami envelope. I want it to look nice and be fun to open. And, I always include a thank you note. So, when I receive something from another shop, I'm kind of disappointed when it comes stuffed in a sandwich bag or just loose in the envelope without even a receipt or message.

So, how important is packaging to you? Talk amongst yourselves...

I agree. I like my customers to feel as if they've just shopped at a high-end boutique - but more personal! I'm a bit disappointed too, when I receive something packaged haphazardly...

I need to practice more involved wrapping. I'm guilty of shipping in boring packages but I received a card from my sister's shop in the most beautiful packaging. Even her mailing envelope was appealing.

I try to wrap my items nicely inside the package though i reuse envelopes.. i should probably do better with it though. i usually wrap with tissue paper or ribbon. sometimes i think i get a bit burned out and do just toss things into a package *bad on me there* i do enjoy pretty packages though.
