Carol Prolonged | Episode 895
This episode is a tiny diverse from something that we have accomplished before. Carol Lengthy would make a lot of operate, sells a whole lot of operate, and therefore ships a ton of perform. When Carol and I had been concluded recording her episode (episode 894), we continued our conversation. The emphasis of our discussion was her shipping and delivery do the job techniques. Mainly because her work has so quite a few breakable parts, she has experienced to be very conscientious with her packing procedures. So we strike the document button once more and talked packing.
The butterfly platter is weighty but the handles are fragile. Stiff buffers are in spots that are not handles to maintain it away from the edges of the box. Soft padding is stuffed around the handles. Then double boxed. 20″x 20″x 12″ box. Charge $100ish to go to CT. As well much $!
I should have taken it all apart and reboxed scaled-down. Vowed to do superior following time.

The dragonfly platter was oriented in the box to relieve pressure on 2 handles but would involve a even larger box to accommodate the 3rd tackle. No!
-cut out side of box for 3rd deal with. Now it has to be taken treatment of in the 2nd box. I wouldn’t suggest degrading the structural integrity of the box, but it worked for this 1.
-lower out house in rigid foam for 3rd manage. The foam has to be secured so it doesn’t shift.
-apparent packing tape on interior box. It’s effortless to use and doesn’t need considerably.
-new packing containers Uline
-foam is recycled.
-black bubble wrap close to the pot is not recycled. It’s tender and much easier to pop so it needs a several levels just in situation. Uline
-blue bubble wrap is recycled. Very rigid. Not good up coming to the pot. Terrific for in between boxes.
fiber packing is Uline. I’m making an attempt to locate superior packing components. It is hefty and sends fiber into the air. I like it but my fav is even now bubble wrap.
-sealed with preprinted bolstered paper tape. Uline
-4″x 6″ label printed right from what the buyer has offered on the site. bluetooth

The tall deer vase has handles that increase alongside the sides. The pot is hefty so the handles want to be secured from effects.
A piece of styrofoam inside the pot that extends to the facet of the box. That keeps the leading of the pot away from the box. That is secured with other styrofoam to keep it from moving side to side.
The foundation is secured from relocating facet to side.
All voids are stuffed to stop shifting.
Given that the pot is so weighty it is double boxed with a couple inches all all around.
