Some people may celebrate the growth of their business with new shoes and handbags or bottles of champagne but I'm afraid that what I get excited about is being able to afford new packaging.
Since last Christmas we have been wanting to change the way we wrap
our mirrors - we always like to make our parcels look nice, and
everything has always arrived with customers wrapped in tissue and
However the number of people wanting us to wrap everything
individually always increases around Christmas and with some orders
having 20 mirrors in them it was very time consuming and confusing as
they all had to be labelled too.
We also noticed that people, quite understandably, opened the wrapping when it arrived and we just knew that however neatly they put it back together it wouldn't be quite right.
So over the summer we designed these gift pouches - they fit a single mirror and are tied at the top with fine satin ribbon. We can add a gift label if its needed. They can be opened and then put back together . . . we can label them easily (or check if we lose count!)
Earlier this week 12,000 of them arrived.
From next week all mirror orders will be going out in them.
