The way in which I package my items for Poshmark has become incredibly important to me. On the one hand, I want my customer to feel special opening their purchase! On the other, my small business needs to find every way to save money and I try my best to be frugal. If I could have each package spray confetti when someone opens it, I would! But that might get costly...
I've been very happy with the way in which I have been packaging my sales and the feedback I have gotten about them, plus I have found it only costs me 26 cents per item to ensure a cute and fun package! Keep scrolling to see my process and links to pick up these items too!
My tools: tissue paper, thank you stickers, business card, twine, and a cute polymailer!
Once I had committed to bulk purchase of tissue paper when I first started my business, I wasn't sure if I loved it so much and I found the clear plastic polymailers to look more professional. However, I like the "gift" effect tissue paper gives to my sales, plus it is better for the environment than adding more plastic people will just throw away.
**pro tip** if the item is too bulky for one piece of tissue paper tape two together!
After I fold up the package in tissue paper I secure the ends with a thank you sticker and my business card, which directs them to all my social media and this blog! I highly recommend a business card because there are really so many ways for an entrepreneur to make money these days and the more followers you have across your social media platforms the better! I got mine through Vistaprint, and bulk ordered them to save money. You can order yours here! Make sure to search around for codes on the site because they always have them going on!
The twine bow is something I've recently started adding to my purchases. I have a background in consumer psychology, and the more you can make a customer's purchase like a gift the better! This is why so many stores wrap up purchases nicely at the store. The more you see your purchase as a gift, the less likely you are to see the money you spent and request a return. Interesting!
Once my package is tied up with string, I slip it into a cute polymailer and off it goes! Currently loving these gingham ones for this time of year. You can purchase all my packaging tools through the Amazon links below, plus they are prime so free ship!
