For many years, we have wrapped our wood box puzzles in black kraft paper before shipping them out.
We do this to keep them protected from dust and during transit.
Recently we got some feedback in a survey asking if we really need it:
I appreciate that the boxes were carefully wrapped, but I feel most people would have no use of this black paper. It is such a waste to throw them away or recycle them because they are in very good quality. So can you stop using them?
It's a great question, do we need that extra layer of protection? We worry the puzzles might not arrive in as-good-shape if we don't, especially in places where boxes might get rained on. But maybe we are being over-protective.
Also, we are considering switching to a plain brown kraft paper (a lot like the material paper grocery bags were made of.
What do you guys think?
