Within a few weeks, we were able to speed things up and reduce lost packages. Read this blog to learn more.

Find The Right Container

When shipping cupcakes, you have to use the right packing materials and containers. You have to worry about the cupcakes turning upside down. If this happens, then your customers will end up with a mess instead of pretty cupcakes. It starts with finding a container to put the finished product in.

 You will need clear cupcake containers with compartments and the containers should have attached lids. The cupcakes should fit snug in the box. You do not want them moving around. If so, you may want to put in extra packing materials to make sure the cupcakes do not move around.

Add Ice Packs

Ice packs and overnight shipping make sure that your product arrives fresh to customers. It helps to tape the ice packs to the top of your box. The box with the ice packs is than put inside of a thermal bag and wrapped in bubble wrap. After doing all these things, you can put everything in a mailing box.

There are different aspects to building a business. You have to make your product available. Business owners must always find ways to grow and be better than the competition. Shipping allows your brand to grow outside of your local community. Your cupcakes are not limited to one area when you have the ability to ship the items.
