Default How to ship LARGE quantities of bows?

Anyone have advice?

I have an order for 90 bows!!

Half of them are the small bows made with 3/8" ribbon.

The other half are made with 5/8 and 7/8 ribbon.

I really don't want to ship them on bow cards because if you stack them...they are likely to get squished (even if they are starched).

Any ideas?

ANY help is appreciated!!!

I used to ship large orders of sheer bows (super delicate) on clips. I didn't put them on cards. I would just put them in a large ziploc baggie and leave room for them to "move". Don't squeeze out the air ~ it gives a cushion against getting squished.

That's my 2 cents!

if a bow needs to really stay shaped, i put tissue paper in the loops.

I get bubble wrap and put bubble wrap between the layers of bows. If I need to keep flowers shaped (say daffodils) I wrap them in bubble wrap and tape closed.

Wow!
That's a big order! I would probably put them in large ziplock bags, like suggested, and leave the air in the bag.
Good luck with the order!
