Deciding What to Use
Once a hand crafted artisan has completed making and curing their soap the time comes to package it so it can be sold or gifted. If you allow yourself to listen to all the chatter, you may find yourself stuck. Press Play to hear my thoughts and experiences with packaging. I also include some suggestions if you are just getting started in this episode of Soap Talk Nation.

Packaging Options for Beginners
- Plastic wrap -It's fairly easy to get and simple to use.
- Cigar bands – You can cut a piece of decorative card stock and wrap it around your soap and apply the label
- Shrink Wrap – Requires a bit more of an investment but does create a more polished and consistent look.
Remember it's not just about the packaging, if the quality of the product is no good, it won't matter how you packaged it. I also did a live broadcast and discussed it here. You can see how the bars are shrink wrapped.
How are you planning to package your soap for sale?
Until next time.
