Paperwhite Designs SarahDIY is not for everyone. Not everyone is crafty or has time to make all the cute ideas on Pinterest. That’s where Sarah Jelgerhuis comes in. In 2011, Sarah started her tissue pom business Paperwhite Designs when she realized there was a demand not being met.

Sarah explains, “Out of college I dabbled in the world of event planning, but eventually got tired of the long hours, so I quit and found myself doing sales for a special event rental company. Part of my job was to keep the showroom up to date with the latest trends. Pom poms were big that year (thanks to Martha Stewart) so I decided to make a few to put over one of the tables. I would have brides asking me all the time if they could rent them, buy them or learn how to make them.” For a few weeks Sarah was holding pom-making sessions with bride after bride, sharing her secrets for the perfect pom.

One Good WomanSpecialty foods retailer One Good Woman has grown from one to two – owners that is. Founded in 1996 by Holly O’Connor, one brave woman with a big dream to provide local clients with the finest and freshest roasted coffee. This was long before the era of our modern coffee craze.

Holly began selling coffee out of the back of her car and delivering to people’s homes. Years later, she opened a brick and mortar location in Camp Hill, PA that quickly became one of the best specialty food stores in the Harrisburg area. They offer fine foods, fresh roasted coffees and loose leaf teas, as well as beautiful custom gift baskets. [read more…]

Nashville Wraps packagingNashville Wraps went toe-to-toe (or should we say bag-to-bag) with some of our competitors. Fit Small Business, which specializes in e-commerce, retail, and product reviews, put our brand to the test. Here’s an excerpt from their analyst Ian Atkins:

You need a shopping bag that can carry you across the finish line. Here’s everything you need to know about buying retail shopping bags wholesale. Even getting them customized to reflect your store’s unique identity is a snap. [read more…]

New Saddle Stitch RibbonI just love how our new Saddle Stitch Ribbon looks paired with printed tissue. This neutral ribbon has a contrasting saddle stitch along the edges which gives it a sweet “homespun” look. Pair it with our high-quality printed tissue – which feels almost like fabric – and you’ve instantly got an inviting gift wrap option with a personal touch.

Wrapping up a smaller, unboxed gift in a sheet of tissue is quick and easy. It’s also a cost-effective way to get extra mileage out of packaging you may already have on hand! And, if you tie a ribbon around it, you might not even need tape.

Birmingham Bake & Cook Co.It’s trade show season here at Nashville Wraps, and we are excited to share our new collections in person. Our customer Susan Green, owner of Birmingham Bake & Cook Company, has been attending the Atlanta Gift Show for years.  She says, “One of the things I love about the Nashville Wraps‘ booth is that the displays and groupings give me such great tools visually to bring back to the shop. It’s exciting! None of us can be creative in a vacuum – we need each other!”

There are so many reasons why attending trade shows is important. “They are critical for re-energizing not only our inventory and offerings, but ourselves,” explains Susan. “I get to talk to reps and other store owners. We talk about what works, what doesn’t, what’s hot and what’s not. Because our shop is small, we must have a consistent influx of new and interesting products to show and be excited about! Also, I love meeting people at market that I have previously only talked to over the phone.” [read more…]
