In my last post “A Little Creative Packaging can go Along Way” we looked at the ways of packaging on a budget. Wel, now it’s all about showing off your packaging efforts even before a customer has bought from you. By sharing images of the way you will package your products, is a way of showing your potential customer how special their item will look when they receive it.
Many of you may not stick to the same packaging materials and like to add something a little different every time you package your items. If this is the case you could take an image of the packaging you sent to your last customer. This can be a little tease for that new customer, looking at your listing and thinking of purchasing.
How about turning your parceling fun inside out. By using plain packaging on the outside you could surprise your customer by adding all the colour on the inside, what a surprise that would be.
Jazz up your boring brown cardboard boxes with the use of your stamps, stencils, paints etc. Don’t limit your creativity on your now blank brown canvas.

Many would love to purchase from you again, knowing that they may get a wonderful surprise hidden inside.Even if you stay with the norm for your packaging, you can go that extra mile with your labels that you use. Or you could add beautiful tags to your items if you do remember to add your sites url nice a small.
