BoxesRUs


Those of you who have purchased soap from me know that I hand wrap each bar in simple white paper with the labels attached (front & back). I like simple.

So as you all know, I will be participating in a few vending events this year and I've been thinking (or more like worrying) about my soaps getting damaged while travelling or while being handled by the millions of customers that will be visiting my table. Yes - I said millions!

I decided to make the big switch to boxes out of love for my bars and concern for their safety. I will continue to hand wrap individual bars that I sell on-line but for the fair/shows - boxesRus!

Here's what I came up with. What do you think?

I know I'm making it seem like a huge big deal but it really is for me.......I know, I need a life right?

I love the box! I find the packaging quite elegant and stunning that you selected.

Loved the plain white tissue wrapped soaps that I got in the mail last week for their simplicity. The boxes will allow for people to see the soap and smell the soap, which is really cool also.

I think the boxes are beautiful and still simple. Great pick on the packaging. It's one of my hardest things to pick.

I like how you can see the soap through the window!

no, I think it makes a lot of sense actually.People can still smell your bars, and see their size, etc. but will hold up much better to rough or multiple handlings.
