I've never sold packaging or any additional stuff with cupcakes to customers before. Can someone help me with a price per unit for this? Here are the details:
-Cupcake wedding favors for 130 people
-Charging $1.25/ea for cupcakes alone
-Customer asked about crystal clear individual cupcake boxes
-Boxes are $58.00 + $33.00shipping + tax = about $100 total for 100 pieces.
-I'd have to order 200 pieces and be 70 items over if I do it online.
-The retails store is FAR from me (gas $15 and time 2 hours) and they cost $20 for 10 pieces
Hi have you checked out ebay for individual boxes most come in at less than a dollar each with free p&p
Maybe tell the customer you can't provide the packaging but direct her to the site or source which does and let them deal with that aspect.
I have a wedding coming up with 140 individually wrapped cupcakes (clear boxes) with ribbon. I charge $2.25/cupcake, the boxes cost $20 for 10 ($2 each) so I quoted her $4.25 per cupcake and she was fine with that. Maybe just quote them and leave it up to them whether they want to package them themselves or not.
i use big river packaging
their boxes are paper, but they have the cutest cupcake boxes with windows that i love. i especially like the brown eco boxes. they are <$31 for 100 boxes with no additional shipping.
maybe your bride could consider this option if the other becomes too difficult.
