    Question How do you all package your Silver pieces?

    Hi all!
    I'm thinking of changing my packaging and wondered how you all package your Silver Jewellery?
    I normally put my Silver Pieces in a little Zip loc Bag and then place it in a little gift box.

    The sealed Zip loc bag is used to stop any tarnishing (and especially when items are being shipped abroad, i make sure to use a Zip loc bag). As when i first started shipping Silver, i'd just place the item in a Box only for overseas customers to tell me their item had arrived tarnish. :/
    Is there a way of ensuring the Silver doesn't reach my customers tarnished, but without using zip loc bags?
    Was also thinking of buying some Necklace and Earring cards (as they look so cute) Click image for larger version.

    I box mine, but include an anti-tarnish tab somewhere in there.

    I am a box person too. Depending on the occasion, customers can upgrade to a wooden box, or some in between with the plastic, erm, I mean leatherette boxes.

    If you are sending abroad, cardboard boxes will be the best for economy, but again, ask the customer and have the options available. Carded items have never been requested by my customers. I do the occasional giveaway and will send things off in a velvet bag, but a purchased item gets a box.

    Anti-tarnish pads are great, I also have the anti-tarnish spray from Towntalk, it is really good. Prefer their tabs as the customer gets a clear message about it rather than not and it is recyclable when no longer needed.

    What came out of a recent conversation Adam, and I think is quite important, is that our customers/recipients would not necessarily recognise anti tarnish tabs and bags and discard them.
    Some, such as Town Talk, actually explain on them what they are and this is a big plus in emphasising the care taken by the seller and even in pointing out in a subtle way, that silver does tarnish.

    Regards, Dennis.

    I always box everything and enclose an anti-tarnish tab. I also send a small leaflet advising how to care for the piece.

    Adam,
    I emailed Cookies but got no response. I order the town talk polishing cloths to go in some orders, but not enough to warrant the trade size packs. However, when they come, they have had the sticky order labels stuck directly on them, which can't be removed without wrecking the packaging. Is there any way to request this isn't done?
