Ive been sitting on for a while now thinking of a great, non-costy packaging for my tees. Any Suggestions? Ideas? weeww..

    poly-mailers?
    aprox. $1 a mailer including 1 color ink print and with self-adhesive

    or a lot less than that without a print on it

    The only thing I will say is that packaging isn't something you need to worry about if you're just starting out. Focus on creating a quality line first and then move on to other branding efforts once you've established a following.

    We've been in business for nearly 3 years now and still don't have any custom packaging and I can easily tell you that we haven't lost a customer because of it. Buttons, cards, stickers, etc. are much more important that something that will end up getting thrown out.

    i love the title of this post :)

    packaging is a luxury, but RARELY is ever a deal breaker with a customer. As long as it arrives alive your good. Everything else is a bonus and furthers your brand image. Most custom packaging that is not a poly mailer is very expensive with high minimums.

    you should talk to Ken from Declaration to see how they did theirs.

    I do polymailers with a print and now hate it when I run out(like the past two weeks) until new ones come in. For some reason after seeing a boatload of packages get dropped off with a logo on them, the plain brown mailer looks like junk. It's like the brown bag vs a sweet lunch box/thermos combo.

    I didn't get mailers until I knew I could burn through st least 400 over a 2-3 month period. Trying a new larger one and ran 500 as a test run. If you mail a lot, it's worth it. If you are moving only 30-40 packages a month, it may not be worth the added expense.

    well thank you alex, im a fan of your blog, watch them a lot.. but yeah,lately,what i did is buy a few meters of raw box material, load them in a printer to have custom print on 'em and assemble them into a shoe box. but shoe boxes are like so last summer. so, im thinking of new ones. As you said, and i quote, all about the experience. Im not a very good designer like greg abott or nicolo nimor or LaFlamme, so I try to reach them in a different way.

    i do door-to-door delivery and meet-ups sir. in our city/country,places are near to each other compared in the US. so mailing things, for us, is unecessary. What im saying is, polymailers for me is not a good idea (peace). But thanks man! I never thought you'd have to like order them in that quantity.
