Default Packaging Cheer Bows

Hi everyone! I have been gaining all sorts of knowledge from you, but I have a question about cheer bows. I am doing my first order and I am wondering how you package these when you give them to the team. For normal bows I just use plastic baggies, but obviously the cheer bows will not fit in those unless I use gallon size ziploc. Any tips would be much appreciated!

Depends on how they will be delivered. Hand delivery, esp to someone I know, gets a cute gift bag with my logo, bow(s) wrapped gently in colored tissue paper with my instruction card, handles tied with matching curly ribbon.
Shipped bows get layered, packed and wrapped in white tissue with those air-filled packing balloons, with film-type wrap lining interior of box, just in case the box gets wet. I use large flat boxes from UPS store or the container store. Baggies will cause the bows to get squished and (horror!!) the loops will get flattened or ends will not stay flat.
But, I don't sell boutique-y type bows, only cheer bows, streamers, headbands, and spankies.

I mailed off 35 sequined cheer bows and I bundled the bows in 10's, wrapped them up in tissue paper and stacked them in a box. I used the bubble pillows to make sure they didn't move around in the box. They arrived perfect. Not sure that would work if they were the boutique style of bow.

These were easy to stagger bundle in the groups of 10.

I agree with Shelleigh....I package my bows loosely stacked with white tissue paper. If you look at the Cheer Bow Care instructions thread, I suggest to my customers storing their bow in a small disposable tupperware container. That way, nothing can happen to the bow once it's out of the hair and in a bag.

Just a suggestion. That and $.25 may by you a cup of coffee.

Thanks for the response! I will be hand delivering them, so I will just wrap them up and give them to the coach. Thanks for the idea of storing them in tupperware also.
