  • posting boxes

    I have got some lovely cardboard gift boxes for my necklaces but dont want them getting crushed in the post! Do I need to get boxes for my boxes now?! Or will Jiffy bags do the job? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

    why not set up a trial and post them to yourself with different wrapping techniques.
    Different boxes will stand up to different stresses.

      You could always wrap the box in bubble wrap, before putting in the jiffy bag?

        We always put boxes in boxes. Sometimes people send returns back to us just in a jiffy bag and most make it back un-squished but I personaly wouldn't risk it.
        I think the idea of running a trial is a good one, but a lot depends on the individual handling of each parcel and you always get the odd casualty.
        I had a return today that had definatly seen better days but luckily it was just the outer box and the actual product was fine!

          Thanks everyone! My sample box arrived in a jiffy bag and was a bit squished, will have to look into boxes I think unfortunately! More expense! I like the trial idea though! Thanks!

            I've never had a problem with boxes being squished, I put them in a jiffy which is very snug fit - not sure if that helps, but they all get there fine.

              Sorry, can't help with the postage question, but just wanted to say I've just been on your website and I think your product is fantastic, a very good idea and your necklaces are lovely. I'm still at the sourcing gift boxes/packaging stage for my jewellery!

                Thanks everyone, and thanks Nicola for your lovely comments-always a boost to hear nice comments! I cant seem to find the right size postage boxes for my boxes anywhere! Maybe will have to go for bubble wrap and Jiffies after all. Def recommend Tiny box co. for the gift boxes though, am very pleased with mine and good customer service too.

                  Hello

                  I had the same problem! I did have to buy posting boxes, the problem with that, that it meant I could no longer send them as a large letter and the postage costs have gone up too!
                  The boxes I got were great from here http://myworld.ebay.co.uk/jwspackagi...:X:AAQ:GB:1181

                  the best prices I could find.
