Thinking of Mom

February 16th, 2017

holiday-packaging-trioIt’s mid-February and visions of cupid, hearts and flowers are giving way to shamrocks, green beer and hopes of warmer temperatures. While the rest of the world is thinking about next month’s shenanigans, we want to take a moment to focus on Mom. In the retail world, Mothers’ Day is the third largest holiday, next to the Christmas shopping season and Back-to-School time. While flowers and greeting cards make up the majority of the gifts given to mothers, retail products that pamper mom, such as candles, bath bombs and wine, are also very popular and extra thought should be given when planning for your product’s retail packaging for this holiday.

fiat-lux_pkg-and-candleThank you for your kind words, Marlene! It’s customers like you who give our team motivation and make our business a success while helping other small businesses like yours to succeed!

Marlene Stang of Fiat Lux wrote:

Mark Principi has been such a pleasure to work with. He’s knowledgeable, accommodating, answers my questions in a timely manner, and goes that “extra mile.” I have a friend who will be interested in exploring packaging for her candle very shortly, and I will absolutely refer her to Custom Paper Tubes!


…The eagle has landed! I got my canisters today… THANK YOU! And as you can see in the picture I attached, the image will now be on the glass as well.

Best regards,
Marlene

Customer Review – 4 Element Lifestyle

Thank you, Howard, for the kind words regarding our food grade paper cap packaging for your teas.

Howard Walsdorf of 4 Element Lifestyle wrote:

I’ve been wanting to let you guys know how nice the 4 Element Tea canisters came out – got side-tracked along the way.  The tops are perfectly sized – which I was concerned about back yonder.  They seem to remain well sized even after many uses…I figure it’s never too late to say, “good job”; so thanks. I hope to eventually need to order more canisters.  Happy New Years to you and your staff.
