I, too, love shopping for clothes online. I enjoy putting things into my imaginary shopping cart without ever having to carry them to the cash register or veto them in the dressing room. However, after you press buy, then the waiting game begins. You typically wait about a week and often receive your item in a plastic packaging bag. Once you get through that obstacle then the item is usually in another clear plastic bag with your invoice. All that fun I had shopping online doesn’t really seem to translate into the fun packaging.
So, when we started Awestomy, an e-commerce business, we decided to give our packaging a more personal touch. I wanted to show our customers just how important they are to us. Each item is hand wrapped in yellow tissue paper and closed with an awestomy sticker. We want it to feel like a present! On top of that, you will find a small thank you card that explains how awesome our customers are and shows how much was donated from this purchase to an IBD related charity through our Give A Sh*t program.
We then place it in a box not a bag. It just makes me think of a care package and that’s exactly what I hope we are delivering. Of course, it would be cheaper of us to use bags but, I’d rather go the extra mile to make someone smile. I have always felt like it’s the little things that can make the biggest impact. So my hope is that you too enjoy shopping online and that when you receive a package from awestomy that we can make you smile.
