How I Packaged and Shipped Hastypearl Eco Dyed Scarves, to a Gallery
Have You read my last blog posting titled, Hastypearl and Art On 8th In Glenwood Springs, Colorado? The one about joining up with a Glenwood Springs, Colorado Art Gallery called, Art on 8th?
I hope you will backtrack and take a look. ( Don’t miss a Hastypearl posting by simply typing your email address in the provided place called, Follow/Subscribe. I hope you do!)
Well, if you did read my last posting, you know that it was agreed that I would send out to Art On 8th, some of Hastypearl’s eco dyed silk scarves and runners.
I do all of my own shipping from home, so I thought that I would do a quick little overview, of how I handled shipping the scarves.
It was really important that they arrived without fold creases, so I came up with the following idea.
First, I ironed everything, nicely.
Normally, I have some extra paper towel rolls, but I couldn’t find any, so I made a couple of my own tubes with something that I ALWAYS have around…brown craft paper.
It was actually nice, because I customized the size of the rolls. I simply made the decision about how tight to roll the paper, and wrapped it with some shipping tape.
Then, I cut it the appropriate length for two loaded rolls.
We have a vintage store display case that we use for our kitchen island.
I don’t know what I would DO without it.
I started rolling up my first scarf, keeping it nice and smooth.
Next, came the second scarf on top of the first….
…and I kept rolling scarves, until I had seven on each tube.
I love to receive mail that someone has done a little extra, to make things pretty, so I added two wide ribbons to hold things in place. The width of the ribbon kept the scarves from wrinkling.
Then, I popped them into a bubble mailer.
I can’t tell you how many times when I was in a hurry, that I got the package all sealed up, only to find that I hadn’t added a thank you note, or something that was important to the transaction. You can always open it back up, but its so much more fun when you don’t have to : )
Well, there you go !
Maybe you already know everything that I just showed you, but I always love seeing how someone else does something that I need to do. I often pick up new ideas from reading how other people do things.
I hope that you can translate this, to something that you need to ship.
It was fun to look up and see a friend looking at me from outside of my kitchen window. There are certainly tons of little crawly creatures for her to feast on and she is very welcome, here!
Make sure that you take a little tour around Hastypearl.com, while you are here.
I have a commerce shop, here, with Hastypearl art for you to take a look at. It’s hard to believe that we are already approaching holiday shopping time and even if you aren’t an early bird shopper, there are always ongoing Birthday, House Warming, Mothers Day and Graduation etc. gifts, needed. Hastypearl doesn’t mind a bit it you find something for YOURSELF, as well!
I have been shopping/giving handmade for a long time and it just feels good to know the person that made the gifts that I give…in other words…consider shopping…Handmade!
When you are ready to make a Hastypearl purchase and you have your item in the cart, simply tap Pay Pal, even if you don’t have a Pay Pal account. It will then give you the option to use your favorite Credit Card. It’s just like shopping anywhere else online. I will get your items packaged and in the mail, often the same day.
I’m so happy that you stopped by to see me!
I’ll be back very soon!
As always…Best to You…Laura aka Hastypearl.
