Packaging 2015 Wrap Up

As this year approaches the finish line, giving birth to “New Baby 2016”, take time to reflect on your past year’s business and/or personal experiences. What went well? What didn’t go so well? As you complete your Packaging 2015 Wrap Up, let us know how we can be part of your continuing growth.

First, take a moment to bask in the memories of your victories, and learn from them. For those things that maybe weren’t perfect, this isn’t the time to agonize over them. Instead, it’s a time for constructive assessment, learning, and setting the course for this next year.

Next, document the course you set. A calendar or digital reminder program usually works well. Include a time frame that allows for research, samples if necessary, and timely product delivery. Start with your target “needed-by” date and back up from there, for things such as…”wiggle room” for the unexpected, assembly time, transit time for goods and/or samples, decision time, communication time, and research time.

It’s Not Too Late . . .

New Year’s Eve promises to include celebrations involving wine and spirits! Make it more festive with colorful wine packaging. Selections become more limited as the year draws to a close. Now is the time to be sure you have enough packaging on hand. And remember…Valentine’s Day is not far behind. Red, Silver, Black, White and Gold colors transition between seasons exceptionally well.

Christmas, Hanukkah, Holidays

Wording used online for the upcoming December holiday season can be confusing, and especially controversial this year. As we strive to maintain our own Christian beliefs, we understand that the English language can often be hpnativitydistracting. “Merry Christmas” is seen as a Christian greeting, but is also widely understood by all. We try to use other acceptable wording as well.

While we reach out to all with our various social media posts, it is important to use different wording so you can find us. This is the same with all internet companies, so don’t judge us too harshly for trying. Oh yes… while choosing our words, we must also keep within the allowable media word count! ZR796

Remember too that “Happy Holidays” and “Seasons Greetings” are not always used to avoid the word “Christmas“, but rather to include New Year in the December holiday season too. In summary, we trust  that folks will move through our attempts to find the correct wording, to uncover the intended purpose of our website. Enjoy!

Focus: Halloween Bags & More

It’s that haunting time of the year again!

Focus On Wholesale Gift Packaging Supplies

Tiny ghosts and goblins will soon appear on your doorstep. They will haunt you with eerie costumes while carrying irresistible smiles and contagious giggles. They will proudly display all forms of spooky Halloween bags and containers to attract the most delicious morsels to their overflowing cache. So where do all these bewitching bags come from?

That’s where you step in! As a store or business owner, you can build a ghoulish amount of good will by making them easy for your shoppers to find. School teachers or community leaders might find some help here too.

Halloween Bags … Try these 5 great ideas:

(1) Simply add themed Halloween bags to your shelves or online store for your customers to buy by the piece. Those shown above are ready to go, priced for resale.

(2) Add value by filling the bags with Halloween goodies from your store. Place the bag and contents on a shelf near the checkout, making it easy for your customers to shop. This is especially helpful as the season gets closer and last-minute shoppers make their way to your store. Decorate with curling ribbons to help attract interest.

Halloween Stickers(3) Be creative and decorate solid colored bags, sold in bulk quantities, for Halloween. Add your price to the bag, and use as suggested above. You can apply seasonal stickers, or feature original drawings on matte bags. Use your own artwork or involve neighborhood children or area artists. Matte Orange Euro Bag Sell markers with the bags so your customers can add their own unique touch. You can add cut-outs or buttons, or other art-card materials, to glossy or matte bags too, for an extra special touch! You might even hold a contest, with the winning Halloween bag displayed in your store window or website.

(4) If you sell Halloween costumes, offer a decorative Trick or Treat Bag in ‘witch’ your shoppers can carry Black Ameritote Halloween Bagsthem home. You can also use solid color carry-out bags, in a color appropriate for this ghostly season. This can build loyalty by saving time and steps for your customers. It will provide them with something they may otherwise forget…and turn them into a hero in their child’s eyes!

Halloween Orange Crinkle Shreds(5) Be sure to decorate your store windows and/or website for the season. Halloween bags, boxes, shreds, tissue paper, and ribbons are all great additions to windows and shelves in your store, as well as booths or tables at upcoming fairs and festivals. Color attracts attention. Imagine the possibilities!
