Nothing is more satisfying than when my work looks clean. I work extremely hard to produce quality items. Now I’m not going to lie, I have made my share of mistakes. Who hasn’t? There is a learning curve to everything. You don’t just wake up one day and know it all. You learn each day, and one of the main ways we learn is through trial and error.
I spend a lot of nights researching. I would love to say mornings, but I am honestly more of a night owl than a morning person. At night I get a little more free time when my husband and daughter are sleep (If they go to sleep). For about 1-2 years I have visualized how I would like my products packaged. I knew that I wanted my products in something that I looked professional.
It is very important to make sure that you check your items thoroughly before shipping them off to clients. You want your work to look as clean as possible.
In addition to the product(s) ordered you should package your business card, thank you cards, coupons/gift certificates, and any other communications such as fliers. This lets clients know how they can contact you for future orders. It lets them know you appreciate their business. It lets them in on any important information you want them to know that they may be interested in.
I ordered mine from Vista Print. They have really good deals. Their products are very professional looking. I have not had any issues with ordering from them. Items have arrived on time and in great condition.
I always think steps ahead. I like to plan for the worst or the “unseen”. What if its raining or snowing and the box that is being delivered gets wet or damaged? There should be extra packaging inside to protect your product. I sew and heat press shirts. So what would be great for this? Cello bags! There is one problem with that. The only cello bags that I found locally were only big enough to put cookies and candy in. I needed to find bags that were big enough to fit shirts and clothing in. I knew I would have to search online. I got 10 X 13 inch self seal poly cello bags from Amazon here. It is one pack containing 100 bags. It’s perfect for what I need, and it gets the job done. I actually started using them immediately and had no issues using them.
