Custom Packaging

Thankfully, when it comes to ordering things online (which we do a lot!), we rarely have issues with packaging (there was one exception a few years ago). The other day I ordered a replacement key for my laptop. Being such a small item, I figured it would arrive in a small padded envelope. It didn’t–it arrived in a standard letter envelope. But the mailer was nice enough to provide some custom packaging to ensure the key’s safe transport and arrival.

To be fair, the key was the right one and it did arrive safely. They get no style points here, though if they gave awards for cheapest packing material, they’d get my nomination for sure!
