While shopping for seasonal packaging, keep in mind that it’s also a good idea to add some basic year-round supplies to your order. This might include carryout bags, tissue paper or shreds, year-round wrapping papers, ribbons and bows, boxes, etc. By doing this, you’ll often save money with quantity discounts and combined shipping costs. Also, it’ll be easier for you to transition from the seasonal busy-ness to your year-round business, without getting caught short on supplies. Oh yes…remember it can also help you avoid express shipping charges or availability issues that sometimes occur with just-in-time ordering.
Another way to manage your year-round packaging needs is to let us autoship products that you use on a regular basis. Quantities of foodservice tissue paper, for example, can more efficiently be shipped 12 pkg every 3 months, rather than 4 pkg every month. This also helps to assure availability when you need it. Take a look at your buying patterns, and contact us to place some of your gift packaging supplies on auto-pilot. It’s good for the environment, for your pocketbook, and for your sanity!
