      Glad to know that you care for your customers. I also believe that a seller should ship the products to the customers the way they would expect to receive a product from a buyer. So here are some helpful tips for you to pack clothes for shipping:

      • Ensure that the clothes are free from any dust and dirt. Remember, first impression is the last impression. So shipping products in excellent condition is very important. Don’t forget to check for tear, zipper, missing buttons and so on. Let the customer know about the delay in case you need some time to get another sample.

      • Also, fold the clothing properly. In case there is a logo, it should face outward so that it is clearly visible. You can also wrap the clothing item in a tissue paper or use bubble wrap so as to keep it clean and safe.

      • Put the item inside a poly envelope. Using poly envelopes ensures that the clothes are not affected by water and such envelopes are affordable. You can also use a zip lock bag if possible. Use tape to keep the sides of the poly envelope intact and then put the cloth in the envelope.

      • Cover the poly envelope with paper and seal it. If there is some extra space left between the envelope and the outer paper, you can pad it up with newspaper or tissue.

      • If you are placing the poly envelope inside a box, always use a box which is big enough for your item so that the cloth does not get wrinkled and messy.

      • remember to include your business card, free gift or invoice with your package and use a USPS Priority envelop for some extra protection.

      I’m sure with these simple tips in mind; you can definitely meet your customer’s expectations and build a good relationship as well. Good Luck!!!

      Ya sure there is. You can follow the instructions as follows:

      • Fold the shirt in such a way that the tags on the front and neck design are visible on opening the pack.
      • You can use an A4 sheet of paper or carton to keep the fold intact. Else you can pack the shirt in a poly bag tightly as well.
      • Make sure you choose the correct size of mailing bag so that the shirt is well packed and doesn’t unfold upon shipping.

      Always remember a neat presentation is what matters the most to the customer. So take care of that.

      What if I fold the shirt a couple of times? Is that fine? I mean I can save some money on my shipping. What say?

      I don’t think that’s advisable. Never fold the shirts or T-shirts two or three times. Always go for a standard fold like you see in the shops. I know that increases the postal charges but gives you points for a good packaging and presentation by the customer. If it reaches in wrinkled form, it will require ironing to start with which might irritate your customer as well. Don’t forget that you need repeat customers in business.

      Sure. For pants and jeans, first fold them into half and then again half fold. Depending on the size of your box, you can make two or three second folds as there are less chances of wrinkle in this case. Use a tissue paper or plastic bag to seal it and tape it up well. Pack it in an envelope and itís good to go with your label.
