Labels and packaging are huge deal when selling your soap. Whether it’s a cigar band, shrink wrap with a label, a coffee filter with a label or simply a box with a label…this is sometimes the first thing your customer will see. You definitely want to make a great first impression!
My favorite way to package round soap is to simply use a coffee filter. I use a 2.5” round label from onlinelabels.com to hold it together. http://www.onlinelabels.com/OL350.htm
For my regular bars of soap, I use shrink wrap bands from Wholesales Supplies Plus and then a rounded corner label from onlinelabels.com. I love the kraft colored labels but they have many to choose from including clear and waterproof. http://www.onlinelabels.com/OL775.htm
