Packaging

A while back, my delightful friend Lindsey linked me to a site where I could buy kraft paper boxes. I really liked them and felt I could make the largest one work for my packaging. I placed my order but during the ordering process I got kicked out of the system. So, I sat and waited. I had purchased my previous boxes at Michael’s. They’re not cheap – $2.99 a pop – but I’ve managed to almost keep within my shipping cost parameters and still be able to insure the packages.

Ok…I finally listed those last two necklaces on Thursday along with another I haven’t posted here. The pink & black one sold within a few hours! I journeyed up to Michael’s yesterday in an attempt to buy several boxes while I got off my butt and try to order from Uline. Much to my dismay, they were out of the square boxes. So I kept searching around the shelves until I found this one and fell in love:

I went to the website listed on the bottom of the box http://www.darice.com. Awesome, BUT I have to have a store front in order to purchase from them, as well as a ‘minimum’ yearly purchase amount. http://www.darice.com/ecom/ViewContent.aspx?sectionId=2&cmid=2003. I hit the intarwebs late last night and found them for $2.29 at Create4Less. With shipping, it’s still probably cheaper than Michael’s when you add taxes for the store purchase.

So, I am trying to decide whether to buy some of these and suck up the costs, or go back to Uline and work with their great deals for the smaller rectangular ones.
