Methods of Packaging Soap

So you made the soap, de molded it and cut it into beautiful bars! Now what do you do with all of it? First it needs to cure! I use stackable, vented Soap Drying Trays. They really seem to reduce the amount of my cure time. The cool thing about these trays is that you don’t have to turn your bars. The air just flows through and around. You can fit on average, a hundred bars on one tray and they are stackable! Need I say more!

 
Packaging your soap! Now this is the fun part! There are so many options. You have put all this work into making these beautiful bars of soap and now you get to decide the best way to package them! There are boxes and sleeves, raffia and twine, cigar bands and shrink wrap…the list goes on. I have seen some really creative packaging even using simple materials such as coffee filters and parchment paper.

 
Two of the packaging methods I really like are cigar bands made from Seeded Paper and Shrink Wrapping. There is this really cool seeded paper that you can your print cigar bands (or other marketing) on. Rather than your packaging getting tossed in the waste basket, it can be planted in soil to produce a gift of flowers.

I also like using a Shrink Wrap System. This is great when you have a lot of soap to package. You can wrap a whole lot of bars in a short time. I especially love using Shrink Films that allow the scent to pass through.
