Marchmeetthemaker , day 24’s prompt is wrapped&packaged .
I apologise now as I am not a pretty packaging artist. My greeting cards giclée prints and original artworks come in cellophane pockets supplied by my printer and mount kit supplier.
In 2021 alongside my other recycled packaging materials I will be investigating and moving to compostable alternative products.
I package items in recycled brown paper bags, smallest size seen here.
These carry my AndyKnillArt stamp (from the local to me English Stamp Company) or the shop’s one for The courtyard studio. When I make a sale I enclose one of my leaflets which includes a 10% discount on a future giclee print purchase.
Framed artworks and giclee prints are wrapped in recycled corrugated paper roll and /or recycled Kraft paper. When posting items in the UK or abroad (furthest to date: Qatar) I use a combination of the above and cardboard boxes which are recycled where possible from deliveries I have received. To date all items have arrived safely and intact to clients.
A short, yet accurate post about how I do things, in fact these days more customers turn down a paper bag than accept one as they are already carrying a bag of their own – a shift in habit already linked to all the campaigns on shopping bags.<div class='sharedaddy sd-block sd-like jetpack-likes-widget-wrapper jetpack-likes-widget-unloaded' id='like-post-wrapper-123416164-5006-651506aef056d' data-src='https://widgets.wp.com/likes/#blog_id=123416164&post_id=5006&origin=andyknillart.com&obj_id=123416164-5006-651506aef056d' data-name='like-post-frame-123416164-5006-651506aef056d' data-title='Like or Reblog'><h3 class="sd-title">Like this:</h3><div class='likes-widget-placeholder post-likes-widget-placeholder' style='height: 55px;'><span class='button'><span>Like</span></span> <span class="loading">Loading...</span></div><span class='sd-text-color'></span><a class='sd-link-color'></a></div>
