What do you expect when you open a package from a handmade shop?
Or perhaps some of you have handmade shops. How do you ship your goods? What do you include?
For me, shopping and selling on Etsy is personal. When I buy something, I imagine what it must be like behind the scenes. I imagine the studio... I wonder how they make what they make. I want to see the process. I am curious about the person who made it. How did they become an artist?
When I sell and ship an item... I want the person who bought it to feel special. When I package up a sale I consider what the buyer will think when they open it. I want them to feel as excited to get their item as I am to send it.
Recently a customer shared a picture with me of her package just opened, which I loved. (I also love getting pictures of cozies in use. It's so nice too see what happens after I drop them off at the PO.)
And now I really really want to hear from you...
If you have a shop, what does your package look like? And when you buy a handmade item what do you expect when you open the package?
