-- Tim and Lil’s big day was coming up, and the only thing that had not been taken care of yet was the party favors. Because obviously, no wedding is complete without sending your guests off with crunchy almonds or weird homemade soaps. This is clearly the reason why people come to weddings in the first place, right? Because they cannot afford their own Jordan almonds. Tim and Lil vowed that instead of distributing tooth shattering snacks they would make homemade jelly beans just like the ones Tim’s grandma used to make. They would be heart shaped, light blue just like the bridesmaid’s dresses and flowers, and last but not least made from all natural sweeteners and non-GMO products (duh).
The couple searched and searched for the perfect way to distribute these tasty treats. They decided on a Pinterest picture where the candies were in clear poly bags adorned with a beautiful ribbon attached with a ‘thank you’ tag. Lil set off in search of the poly bags, and to her dismay the only ones she found were expensive and poor quality at the craft store. Luckily, Tim and Google shared a pretty close relationship so after a bit of searching on the interwebs, he was able to find an online retailer called PackagingSupplies.com that had a wide variety of poly shipping bags. Although designed for shipping, they could also be used to personal use such as handing out candy on a wedding day. The site had all types of poly shipping bags: lay flat, gussetted (which are perfect for storing bulkier items such as candy), ziplocked, and even anti-static for electric equipment. The duo decided on the gussetted bags, and were able to order 1,000 bags for only $12.85. Take that, Michaels!http://therealproductreviews.com/the-wide-variety-of-poly...
The best part of the site was 98% of their items are in stock and ready to ship. Tim placed the order before 1PM EST, so it actually shipped out the same day. This delighted Lil as they were already scrambling for time and the last thing they needed was to wait on the bags once the heart shaped delights were ready to be packaged. In the end, they ended up being a huge hit, and they received many compliments on the nice quality and aesthetic appeal of their party favors. Should you have any party favor needs, head to PackagingSupplies.com to choose from numerous poly shipping bags (http://www.packagingsupplies.com/poly-bags.html
