Is this right..or wrong to do.. - Page 2

post #16 of 24
I use the small return address labels and only put 2 lines on it - my website and phone #. I put the label on the back of the bag behind the cookie so you can't see it all. No one has ever complained, they are usually happy their guests have my number.

Its smart and savy, I would do it. I have seen that many times, and never thought anything wrong with it at all. Its smart.

Why wouldn't you???? Whenever I see something nice, especially at an event, I WANT to know where it came from and who made it if that is applicable. And in the kosher world - any event that has food will display the name of the caterer, etc....people want to know. On a personal basis, like I said, if I see something really nice, I would like to know where I can find it and order it myself if I want....there's nothing more frustrating than wanting to source something and not being able to get the info....of course, I understand that it is for a more informal occasion, in which case, why not just ask the customer ahead of time? So far, everyone I have done orders for, especially cookies, has been astonished if I don't put some kind of info out, or business cards, etc....it can certainly be done tastefully so as not to offend anyone, and also to benefit from your hard work and creativity and artistry. On that note - has anyone ever tried to put something on the back of a cookie identifiying where it comes from??? I actually saw it on a cookie in a store once - they had baked, I think, the label on the back of the cookie - THAT I found a bit off-putting...but how about a stamp that could ink the company name on the back? Anyone know?

when you buy something from a bakery, they put a sticker with their logo on the box. what's the difference?

Well, the box is usually left in the kitchen and the cupcakes, cake, cookies, etc. have no identifiers on them. The purchaser knows where they came from, but the guests do not.

In some cases, unfortunately, the purchaser chooses to tell guests that she/he MADE the item. That's their option to misrepresent the situation, since they paid for the item--not ethical, but it's been done.

I still think it's necessary to ask the purchaser. If the purchaser wasn't expecting the info to be on every bag, or didn't want it there (for WHATEVER reason), it could be an ugly situation for them having to damage the packaging to remove it.

If you buy your daughter a darling dress at KMart, or Saks 5th Avenue, etc., do you leave the tag hanging off the zipper, or do you simply tell people where you bought it when they ask????????????

I only put the labels on items that's I've donated. I do leave a stack of business cards with the customer, though, so that they can be distributed if someone asks for one.

I have used clear return address labels with my web address and phone number on the back of the bag behind the cookie. I have never put these on wedding favors though. And of course stick a few business cards in the box and a label on the front (I also am required to put an ingredient label on the box which has my contact info).
