  • Packaging idea???

    Because I have had so many positive comments about the 3D ornaments I have made for myself I decided to cut some for a couple up coming craft fairs. These are the Diane Thomas designs. The designs called for 1 1/2" stock but I reduced them by 1/3 to fit on 1" stock. They are delicate.

    I have no issues getting them to the event. How would you package them for a customer to take away? I do not want them to break.

    How about a picture so we can see what you are dealing with.
    This is an outfit that I buy all of my ornament boxes from. They may have something that fits your needs. We think putting my ornaments in nice boxes made a significant difference in our sales.

          I either use a bit of tissue paper or just a small lunch brown paper bag.

            I agree with Janette. I wrap everything that is fragile in tissue paper I get at the dollar store. The just give them a plastic "T" bag. I save these from my local stores and re-use them, customers appreciate the recycling and a few have said so.

                Thanks for the link Rolf. I usually use a T bag from the supermarket or the clear ones from the veggie department. Recycling is always a plus.

                  I put those on my 20" Dewalt a couple years ago. Big improvement from the one Dewalt had....

                  We need to know what saw you are using, as they have different clamps.

                  When a blade slips out, the tendency is to tighten it more. Make sure you haven't over-tightened the clamp forcing the sides apart. Most OEM clamps are made from soft aluminum so once it starts they will continue spreading and it will be near-impossible to keep the blades in place.

                  Blade slippage is a function of the blade clamp holder and or the set screw and thumb screw with swivel.

                  Tricia what saw do you have? Does the blade slip or it just won’t tighten?
