Chippy's Popcorn Basket BoxMaking your gift basket POP is important when you are in the gourmet food business, but when you’re in the popcorn business it’s essential! Linda Chipman, Owner & POPerator of Chippy’s Popcorn Creations says, “Our guests love the Intricut Boxes from Nashville Wraps! The designs are whimsical and unique, something customers are not going to get at the local big box store. And for us, the bling is in the box, so a simple basket bag and a bow or ribbon makes a fabulous impression for the receiver.”

Located in Beaver Dam, Wisconsin, Chippy’s also uses our gift basket boxes and market trays. “We love using the basket boxes,” explains Linda. “With a couple of quick folds, we have a high-quality container for our gift selections. The basket benches are great for lifting product, and we find that we can mix and match depending on what is going in the box. For example, sometimes we might use a small bench in a large box since we need a smaller rise in the box. I love the variety of solid colors and designs offered by Nashville Wraps. It actually becomes hard to choose and not over-order because there are so many nice designs, particularly at Christmas!” [read more…]
