Packaging is something which i feel is important.
I hate wasteful packaging but don't mind if it is
My parcels are always
wrapped in tissue paper ... to look pretty
sealed in sealed bag ... incase outer packet gets damaged
Jiffy bag ... add protection.
However i have recently been giving this alot of thought.
Main reason being the recent postal price changes.
Some of my journals will fit large letter but by time they are packaged they end up as parcel.
Sometimes the air hasn't been squeezed out.
Sometimes it's the little extras bulking things up.
Sometimes the inside packaging is too thick.
My journals vary in size and shape so need the packaging to be adaptable and easily available.
So my options are:
sealable bags used inside aren't cheap and also aren't easy to obtain in various sizes.
Jiffy bags are limiting as my journals can fit large letter but sometimes end up going parcel as the packet is slightly too thick.
Is gift wrapping really needed. Some people charge extra for this service.
At the moment i have alot of jiffy bags as i brought a large quantity from Ebay, the seller made a mistake and sent me exta free so ended up 75 of them! Bonus!
These do add protection for my journals and have yet to hear of any that have actually gotten damaged.
I gift wrap because i was lucky enough to be given a drawer full of tissue paper, that happen to be A3 size.
Hmmmmmm...thinking...thinking...my brain hurts!!
going to do away with the sealable bags inside.
Also going to trial posting bags for my larger journals.
I am a fickle person and this may change by next week though.
Still open to any suggestions.
How do you package your parcels??
