    I use cellophane bags and sheets for my candles but I posted a link a while ago for boxes.

      I thought Id just found a perfect place, great prices and I dint have to buy 200 in one go!
      Investigated further only to find there was a £100 minimum order!!

          PJ minerals are notorious with their posting out. They keep you waiting for upto three weeks and then ony send half your order!
          If you are not in a hurry and are prepared to wait then they are ok!

            Yeah, Ive ordered form them before and they sent the wrong things.
            I think as Im not in a hurry I may get, say, 20 of a couple of sizes(Ive come to the conclusion that a tiny pendant necklace would look silly in a long necklace box)then at least I have a few boxes in advance so I can see how things sell then get larger or smaller(sob sob)quantities of boxes when they reach the end.
            Plus you can get 10%+ dicounts if you buy 10 or more!
            What do you think, a good starting plan or not?

              Hello Seahorse

              I have a few details of packaging suppliers which are at home at the moment. One that springs to mind is Inca am sure you will find it if you put it in your search engine. Will post up a few more later.

                  Dilemma-
                  With sts it needs to be stored in a air tight bag when not being worn and Id like to give the buyer a bag with their purchase.
                  I was going to send the item in the bag.
                  Now with the boxes I may get the shape is all wrong.
                  Do you think its ok to provide the bag but not put the item in it and send it like that?

                    I would say so, it will look better in the box, then you could put a little 'how to look after your jewellery' note in with the air tight bag. I think that will look good, i would be pleased if something i ordered came like that.
                    interesting though, i never knew that about sts, good job all my stuff is silver plated!!
                    Might explain why my own jewellery needs cleaning so much in my jewellery box!!!!

                      Cool, I have found some bags(a bit bigger than necessary) but I can ge them from a place I already need to order from.
                      Ive done a 'looking after your jewellery' write up to give to the customers, Im glad you think its a good idea.Im going to put it in a delightfully coloured envelope with the receipt stapled to it.

                        That sounds perfect to me,
                        i am a firm believer that it's 'all about the packaging daaaaaaarling!!!'

                          Packaging is costing a foooortune.
                          I like the 12p's and the 10p's of some of the things Im using but not the 60p box and the £1.40 postage!!!

                              packing and saving the planet

                              i use whatever packing i can get my hands on, you`d be supprised what you can use for packing around the house, even things like cornflake boxes and reuse jiffybags that come through the post. And doing all this saves on global warming by recycling......ok ok....every little helps dont it,( if we all did it, it`s bound to help abit even if it`s not filling up the landfill site so quick ) and you save a quid or 2 buy not having to buy much packing.
