DIM Weight and the impact on shipping cost

Dimensional weight and rates have become a hot and not too favorable topic for shippers of all sizes because now size really does matter when it comes to shipping. Delivery services like UPS, FedEx and USPS who used to only consider weight when determining shipping rates, would only penalize … Read More

Elegant Ear Cuffs 8

Fiona Thompson, owner of Elegant Ear Cuffs has found the perfect eco-friendly packaging for her jewelry business. Located in Philadelphia, Elegant Ear Cuffs specializes in custom ear jewelry and markets it online and through in-home party sales.
