When I first started to package these I put two in a ploly bag with a tent card stapled to it. But the poor things alway got broke. Customers are not gentle people. So now I shrink wrap em individually and stick in a basket.
How do you package your bath bombs? Right now, I am putting them in polypro bags, but would like something a little more professional looking.
I have yet to add bath bombs to my line (I wish I had a dependable recipe!).
But, if I did have them ... I like the idea of shrink wrapping them individually. Also, I'm thinking about getting those small boxes used for chocolates and such. Would be nice to display three or so to a box and have it labeled up nice. Clear boxes would be an even nicer alternative!
Is there such a thing as a non stinky shrink wrap? I need some for bubble bars too.
I put mine in zipper bags with cardstock stapled to the top. I usually leave a LOT of air in the bag, so the bath bomb has some cushioning. They've yet to break, and my customers love them! Plus, I like the large amount of label space I have with the hang tag. On the front I have a really elaborate title and such and then I have plenty of space on the back for directions, warnings and ingredients. I DO like the idea of individually shrink wrapping them (which I did when I first started) but if you have round bath bombs, the shrink wrap looks weird, you can't really label them well, and my customers had a really hard time getting the shrink wrap off without ruining the bath bomb. Plus, my customers like the fact that there's always some extra "powder" at the bottom of the bag that they can throw into the bath, too. Just what works for me....find something you're comfortable with and something you like and go for it!

Does anyone leave them naked in baskets...so customers can plop them into bags?
My goal is to figure out to make them hard hard hard & use donut prongie thingies so they can grab one & place it in a waxed deli bag. I'll have one card that lists the ingredients & it goes in there with them. Just my thought.
I just started to make these and I plan, for now, to leave them naked in baskets with little cards stating the indgredients and scent. It's not how I want to do them, but until I can figure out what it is that I really want and how to do it, I will do the baskets for now. I am so packaging challenged!!
Unless your name is Google, stop acting like you know EVERYTHING! People that act like they know everything are highly irritating to those of us that actually do.
I keep coming back to the idea of fun tissue paper with a bow. So wrapping the ones in the basket, and then putting a small tub of unwrapped ones in front of the 'to be purchase' baskets. This way the balls can still breath & be held together all at the same time.
Bumpin for you so maybe Jenn will pipe in here. Her's are so hard they are lethal but oh so good.
I sell mine naked and have 4 & 6 pack clear egg crates sitting next to them in the store. I've found that it has increased sales on my bathbombs because people want to fill these containers up lol
Also, we have little stickers at the register if people want to label their scents so they don't forget them (or are giving them as gifts)
