Posting Day - Our First Orders

On Tuesday 23rd of March, a week after opening our online shop - we posted out our first four orders! We just had to write a blog post about posting our orders due to both of us bursting with excitement. If you own a small business, you'll know how exciting a trip to the post office is.

Sharing Our Journey

We decided to set up a business blog, to make our small business more personal - and also to take you with us every step of the way while growing our small business. We really appreciate every follow, like, share and order from our business, and we hope to inspire other aspiring small business owners to join the small business world! It won't always be triumphs and sales, but there is the most supportive community around you to help you grow and engage with your socials.

Preparing to Post

The night before posting day, we spent the evening carefully packaging our four orders and putting as much love and attention into them as we could. We wanted to be proud of our products, packaging and overall letterbox gifts - so we definitely took our time to try and get it right.

We chose to post our orders via Royal Mail Click and Drop: a little gem for small businesses like us. Our first orders are “in the post” we are so happy, and can’t thank everyone enough for the support we have already received!

It was such an exciting experience to lovingly package up the first orders and take them to the post office to send them to our very first customers. We've just added a review section to our website in the hope of some positive reviews from our first orders. We hope that those receiving their box will feel the same levels of excitement as we did building them.

If you have any questions about our packaging and postage process, let us know. We've also popped some packaging videos up on TikTok so be sure to check them out.


Thank you for reading! We'd love to hear more about your small business, or your aspirations for starting one. Connect with us on Instagram, Facebook or TikTok. We'd love to hear from you!
