Wow! I usually put mine in a plastic baggie because I'm paranoid about them getting wet, but that looks so much nicer! You definitely put me to shame!

Cool. Thanks for sharing. I would also love to know how you determine shipping costs.

Thank you for sharing this. Your packaging looks great! I have been fighting with myself on packaging and now I need to place an order with Vista Prints. I wish I would've seen your packaging a week ago before I ordered new business cards Oh well looks like I'll be paying for shipping again

I include a handwritten thank you note, a business card, and a magnetic calendar, along with two free clippies. I got the note pad, business cards and calendars free from Vista Print. The thank you sticker is just an address label that I also got for free on Vista Print. I uploaded my designs and took advantage of all their many free offers they email EVERYDAY.

The order in the picture was an order of four 5" stacked bows. I stuck some crinkled up tissue in the space on the right side of the box to keep the bows from sliding around. The bows are all on bow cards and they all fit perfectly in the box. The size of the box is 8 3/4" x 11 1/2" x 2 1/8" and is a self-locking mailing box by Duck. One day, I will order boxes in bulk from Uline. Hope this helps!

Wow, really nice packing!!!

Where do you get the thank you stickys at?

I am sure packing this way causes your shipping fees to be a little higher?
Thanks for sharing!

On Etsy, I list my shipping as $2.95 and if they order multiple items it's $1.00 for each additional item. I have a scale that connects to my computer and weighs the package for me and tells me the postage. This particular package weighed a little over 10 ounces and shipping was $2.92. I really didn't have a clue on what to charge for shipping. I looked through other Etsy shops to see what others were charging for shipping and I went with the average of what I saw. When someone orders off of Etsy, like out of town friends, I send them a PayPal invoice with the exact shipping on it.

Thanks, Robin! I do wrap each bow individually with every order. It takes half a sheet of tissue to wrap one bow on a bow card.
