  • Earring sellers

    Hello

    Due to popular demand I have decided to add earrings to my range, but I was just wondering about how you present/sell them.

    So you all buy those little plastic cards with the holes in? how else can I package them?

    would love to hear all your ideas......

    I always advise to box them, doing this instantly sends a psychological message to the customer that the earings are soemthing on value and you can command a higher price.

      Hi - I designed my business cards so they are portrait and I punch little holes and hang my earrings on the white side, this way they automatically get my contact details.

        very clever idea !!
        to be honest I am earring mad and never really think about the packaging, If I like the earrings I buy them , if I don't like them I don't buy them

          I put mine in boxes and if i was going to put them on card i would put them in an organza bag as well- very cheap but it does give the product more substance i feel.

            i use the little black earring cards
            and if they're made of silver plated/gold plated i put them in a grip seal bag with a printed label on (i design my own price labels with my website printed on them),
            if they're sterling silver or 9ct gold i put them in a box for presentation x

              I also use business cards but ones especially designed for earrings - they have my web addy on , a small logo and also state that they are Sterling Silver Wires

                I have some brown and cream earring display boards/easels (which stack up in a case), which had grey velvet pads with them - but I cut card to fit the slots (in a shade of brown that sets off my earrings nicely), punch holes (using a lacemakers pricking tool - which makes pin-sized holes), and then add a printed label. One day, I intend to print on the cards before I cut them, but need to set up a template on my PC first...

                  I wrap them in tissue paper and put in a pillow box or pouch, to display them i use individual earring trees

                    I like to use a variety of methods, from boxes to my own custom printed cards. Depending on what works best with the earrings.

                    Anything that is personalised to show your own trading name also looks nice I think. I make my own cards on the printer. Earrngs on the front, details about me and my work on the back. I don't have a photo of the cards to hand, but very similar to my buttons packaging here

                    What I don't like to see are self-representing artists using those commercially made little plastic earring cards, because they look so mass-produced and I don't think it sets the work off well.

                    I think the packaging of the work, especially if you sell your work in the physical form at fairs, shops etc (rather than online, in photos) is a golden marketing opportunity. Some people really do make the most of this and others, I think, let it slip them by a little.

                        I do this as well for my earrings that are under £15. I add a note of the stones/silver used in the earrings & the price at the bottom. When they sell, I cut the price off, & wrap in tissue inside an organza bag. For more expensive earrings, I display on individual trees & box them, but I pop the vertical card in with details of the stones and metal used so the buyer has my contact details.

                          Thanks for all your ideas guys, I was looking at the plastic cards, but I think you are right, they just don't fit with handmade stuff.

                          Cheers!

                            we buy small craft display boxes from a company called (I think) box displays. The have a cotton padding and work out at about 20p each depending on how many you buy. We then cut some black foam paper to size and piece to holes in that, placing it on top of the cotton. at fairs we display the items from the boxes making them look well presented (I hope),

                            We also attach our logo to the front of the boxes.

                              A really good idea is a freestanding card made from good quality paper. I'd post a picture of one but don't think I am allowed. They have a pair of little wing sides that you fold back to make them stand up. They can easily be picked up by customers which helps too.

                              You can make them yourself or get a printer to diecut, punch holes in them and add your contact info on them somewhere. I think that a thick WHITE card always shows off jewellery best. Black absorbs too much of the colour.
