Today I want to talk about the role of packaging when ordering and receiving a product and how important it is. You can have a good product but if it is poorly packaged then that will take the shine off receiving it and immediately make it feel less valued than it should be! Presentation is vital and something I’m very interested in. This could be the packaging of my products to the way I present food after cooking! The way something looks really effects the receiving person’s mood and is such a vital piece of the overall feel-good factor of receiving a parcel in the post!
I place great emphasis on it. When putting everything together I always imagine the reaction and joyful face of you the recipient when you open the box! I always keep this in mind. I can also totally relate to the slight feeling of uncertainty when ordering a gift for someone as a present. You might not know the seller or have experience of their products and you can’t actually see your recipients face when they open your gift! I too feel a little apprehension when ordering a gift directly to someone!
Therefore, I want to give you as much reassurance as I can that I will do everything possible to ensure that your gift is packaged and presented with as much love and attention as it deserves.
No matter what gift you choose, it will be wrapped personally by myself with complete care and attention. A personalised message card can also be included upon request. The gift, product instructions and a shop leaflet are all tied by twine string and enclosed in a cardboard box. The box is closed with a black stain ribbon. No invoice, or handwritten note from me.
In addition, we use eco friendly packaging. This includes a bio-degradable bag which will degrade within 24 – 36 months when disposed. This helps to protect from bad weather! Though we are still figuring out the best way to add shipping labels, almost all of the materials are reusable and recycable. This is something I feel very passionate about.
I hope this gives you reassurance when ordering. Every order regardless of volume or cost is very important to me and treated equally. Your feedback and happiness is vital to me and the reason why I continue to design new products. Any suggestions of any kind particularly this time when it comes to the packaging and presentation, please do let me know. I’m keen to listen and share!
