Being in the business, I realized something that I've always taken for granted. HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO USE THE RIGHT BOXES! I never though it would be this hard to find the correct size of boxes to post the diaper cakes to customers outside Penang. Once, I used a huge box to post a small size diaper cake, and believe it or not, the postage fee cost almost 1/3 of the diaper cake price, much to my dismay!
When I found the right sizes of boxes, most of the time, the price would be out of budget. Imagine having to use a RM10++ gift box for a diaper cake that falls under the budget of RM60. Totally unacceptable if you ask me!
So yesterday I was in a dire need to find some boxes to post the diaper cakes I'd baked. I couldn't find any at Tesco nor Giant and didn't know where else to go, as those were the two hyper marts that I always went to get my boxes stock . Then, a friend suggested that I should try asking the kedai photocopy for A4 paper boxes, and so I did.
Voila! I was in luck as they were willing to sell them off, and for a good price I would say. I would've bought hundreds of them if not for the limited
cash I had space we had in the car.
So now, I just need to make some makeover to these boxes before delivery. Makeover, I love!!!!!
