Packaging a $15 cookie. Need Opinions.

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
I normally package my cookies in a cello bag with a white satin ribbon in a brown box with color coordinating tissue paper. For a $15 cookie should I do something special? Will people expect them to be packaged differently than a basic cello baggie? Should they be individually packaged? I need some ideas on how to package more expensive cookies.


TIA

Wow, for $15 a cookie I would expect white glove delivery.

Don't have any advice, just impressed you are getting $15 a cookie

I know that I would have to really be impressed with the package to try a $15 cookie. It would definitely have to be more than a cello bag.

Can you post a pic of a $15 cookie? Just curious! icon_smile.gif (Maybe that will also help to figure out some special looking packaging, becauase it should be in something more expensive looking.)

I am guessing this is for a HUGE cookie? Please give more details?
Thanks

Aww thank you kiddiekakes! you made my day! I'm still new to figuring out how to price some of the 3d designs as I'm not sure how difficult it will be until I do one. The $15 cookies in question are masquerade mask. I'm about to do a photoshoot for them and some other seasonal items (I know i'm late, been very busy with cake orders). Hopefully after editing they will be up on the site tonight.

They are 6"-7" x 2"- 5" in length. Each one varies due the style of the mask.

Well I am in awe of your creativeness..I have done lots of cookies but just don't have the patience for some of the designs you created..Don't even like the RI piping...Your cookies are nothing like I have ever seen before....Love them!!

I think if you want to showcase your cookies, especially for something like the masquerade mask, you don't want so much packaging on the cookie that your work gets lost. I think using the clear cello bags, with corresponding colored ribbons, and perhaps put the cookie up against a colored FDA approved cardboard would make it look lovely. If anything, maybe the box that the cookie arrives in (assuming it's just an individual cookie) could be a fancier box and fill the box with colored tissue that matches the mask. thumbs_up.gif

Really elegant clear boxes, like the lid is clear, the bottom is clear.....everything.

I was thinking the same thing as KimmyKakes -- clear box.

clearbags.com. Good prices and just about everything transparent you can imagine. They are very helpful on the phone too.

If the cookie is $15. that means it is worth that, as soon as you get something other than a cello bag it is going to eat into your profit. I understand you want this cookie to be showcased better but at the same time you need to consider the costs? The smallest boxes here cost $0.85 + tax & it requires a longer ribbon I charge extra for boxes.
