10 ways to creatively package your goods

photo-4One of my business goals this year was to more creatively package my orders to ship out. I don’t have any employees to help me, so it has to be something quick and easy (while also being cute). For now, this is how I package my items, but I also wanted to share 9 other ways to creatively package your goodies so that when your customer receives them, they’ll feel like they’re receiving a gift from a treasured friend.

My good friend Courtney is co-owner of a vintage shop called Belle Wesley Vintage. I’ve ordered a few items from her and her packaging is super cute and fun with vintage findings and goodies. I asked her to come up with a few packaging examples for me and love what she came up with! BWV-packaging BWV-packaging3 BWV-packaging4

You can’t go wrong with wash, pom-pom trim and vintage cards – can you? I didn’t think so! Thanks Courtney (much love!!).

PACKAGING RESOURCES: My go-to resource for all things packaging is PaperMart. Their prices are outstanding when you buy in bulk. I love their paper bags (what?! They didn’t have these the last time I ordered!!), doilies and used to order their jewelry boxes before I started having them printed with my logo. Their website is antiquated but I have never once had a problem with a product from them.

What is your favorite way to package your items (or how do you like to receive them)? Any favorite resources we should know about? Do tell by leaving a comment!

    Love this! Fun ideas. Somehow, recieving an item with fun packaging is way more exciting then plain. I know people who have wanted to visit certain places just because of the bags or packeges they see people walking around with!!
