Default What do you ship your bows in?

What do you ship your bows in? I am about to start making hairbows for an online boutique and shipping will be included in the price the customer pays (which isn't a ton), so I want to cut down on shipping-related costs.

What do you ship your bows in? And where can I buy them?

Thanks!

a small box with lots of padding. If you use usps remember to tell them its not fragile and they should stomp it befpre delivery that way they will treat it as glass and be very careful! You know they only stomp the fragile ones lol. JK

Boxes. I do not like using polymailers at all for my bows because they get smushed. I place a sheet of tissue and then place my bows in the box; cover and then place a business card on top. I like for my customers to open their package and what comes out is what they see in the picture. I do not want for them to have to adjust their bows because they were smooshed during transit. The only way I can see using polymailers are on tuxedo style bows or applique type clips. Presentation of your product is important as it arrives to your customer.

I wrap my bows in tissue paper and mail in cube boxes. I get all my boxes from uline.
