Shipment is a big part of selling jewellery online. No matter if you run a large online store, or if you are just getting started, it is important to make a decision regarding packaging for shipment.
Turn your shipment into an experience
Don't think of packaging as a necessary evil. Think of the branding value that you can get from your packaging and the content of the box, envelope or bag.
First impressions are important! That is why you should think about how you ship your products - and packaging is an integral part of that. Why not give your customer a special experience, that they will definitely remember? For example, you could wrap the content nicely and neatly. Or you could enclose a small greeting or a small gift. Give your customers an unboxing experience, they didn't see coming!
5 Tips on packaging for shipment
Choose the right size of postal box, bag or envelope
There is no need to ship empty air, so make sure to find a packaging solution that suits your needs. See packaging items and sizes here >
Avoid unnecessary waste and overuse
Void fill and protection for your packaging is important, but make sure that you don't overuse it - your customers will be thankful, and the planet will be better off. Read our article about void fill here >
Use your packaging to stand out
Use beautiful adhesive labels, stickers, tape or ribbon with your logo or a message. Your customers will get a great impression, when they collect the package! Think about whether you want a fixed theme, or if you want seasonal themes like Christmas, Mother's Day, Valentine's Day, etc.
Focus on using recycled and eco-friendly materials
Customers demand eco-friendliness - also when it comes to transport and packaging.
Make it easy to return the package
A quick and easy return of the package is important for you and your customer. You may want to encourage your customer to recycle the packaging, if they want to return the products - you could even attach a return label as an extra service.
