Minnie always started her skits with, “How-w-w-DEE-E-E-E! I’m jes’ so proud to be here!” That is exactly how we at Nashville Wraps feel about being a Tennessee company. No state income tax and our central location are definite perks of owning a business in the state of Tennessee, not to mention a wonderful quality of life.http://www.nashvillewrapscommunity.com/blog/wp-includes/js/tinymce/plugins/wordpress/img/trans.gif

After watching the Super Bowl, the half time show and even the commercials I came away with one generally overall theme… “A Positive Spin”. Could this be the start of something good?

Almost all of the big dollar commercials were more lessons in how to live together than what they were selling. But then wouldn’t you want to do business with a “nice” company?  I saw many themes and just to name a few were: respect and virtues of women, minorities, fatherhood and senior adults, love instead of hate, eating right, giving, being happy, etc. [read more…]

 DB Chocolate Infusion – Madison, WIValentine’s Day is all about the candy, and nothing says “I Love You” better than a big box of chocolates shaped like a heart. At least that’s what the chocolate industry has led men to believe.

Luckily for us and for all our gourmet customers, we have gorgeous heart-shaped candy boxes in red, pink, chocolate and gold. They come in two sizes with slots in the base so you can attach your own ribbon. We recommend 7/8″ to 1″ double-faced satin, grosgrain or organza ribbon for a beautiful finishing touch. We also offer heart-shaped candy pads and candy cups.

We wanted to showcase three of our candy customers who use these boxes. We know the candy business is not easy, and we’re honored they choose Nashville Wraps for their packaging. All of them have a passion for what they do and their chocolates are truly works of art. [read more…]
