individually boxed berries (part 2)

Last time I covered why individually boxed strawberries look better if the final step of putting them in the boxes is done locally. It also gives you more options on box color, ribbon style and interior decoration. Continue reading »

Individually boxed chocolate strawberries

A better way to do individually boxed chocolate strawberries
Occasionally people want to order individually boxed chocolate covered strawberries for weddings or parties. The problem is while they look pretty all sealed up: a lot of packaging has to be used to make sure the berry arrives in perfect condition, and all that packaging does not look as spectacular as it could and only one color box is offered.
Things working against the best possible individually boxed strawberry:
1)Internal packaging: we would have to make sure the berry can’t move in any direction, things can get rough in the UPS/FedEx planes and trucks,  that is a lot of extra packaging & would be most of what the recipient sees when they open the small box.
2)All that extra packaging costs more, foam suppliers actually charge partially by the piece so 12 sets of individual foam pieces cost more than one set of foam for a dozen berries.
3)Shipment size, when berries are individually boxed they actually take up more space than if they are in one common box, since FedEx and UPS charge extra for larger sized shipments: individual berries actually cost more to ship.
There is a very simple solution. Order the berries in bulk and drop them in the little boxes yourself.
This actually ends up being much less expensive, much prettier, and you get to choose a box color.
Another option is to put the berries in individual gift bags, they are a lot quicker to pack than the boxes and can look very pretty.
The box size that works best for a single berry is 3x3x3.. but more on that later.

Bad Bunnies..

I wrote this offline about a month ago and forgot about it…

Easter is coming up and I thought that just for fun I’d review some of the mass produced bunnies available in the local stores. It’s a little bit early but the local drug store already has two rows devoted to Easter candy. Continue reading »

Opps they did it again… and their liability insurance company wants out.

Provide Commerce (parent company of Shari’s Berries, ProFlowers, Red Envelope, Cherry Moon Farms and more) seems have ticked off another group of customers.  Their customers have filed another class action lawsuit for passing credit card information to a company that then bills the customers monthly.

So… you are on the internet…. reading up on some product, diet, trend (fad), celeb…

How much of what you read on the internet is true? Does anyone even know? What percent of an article is true? If they write an article: it must be correct and fact checked right? Continue reading »
