Default Re: If you hand deliver orders..

I don't overdo it on packaging because it cuts into profits too much. Like, what you explained is way too much, in my opinion.

I generally do just the clear goodie bags from the dollar store. For larger orders, I use gift boxes I got on mark-down after the holidays. Or, when Hobby Lobby has seasonal items, I get their little gift boxes to use when people order seasonal items. I got some CUTE Valentine's ones for what amounted to a quarter a box. But, I only use the cute boxes if the order is at least 10 dollars. Otherwise, it's not worth the extra expense.

But, I don't make the big fancy bows cause they just don't sell around here. If those are what you're delivering, more packaging would fit into my "at least 10 dollars" thing, anyway!
