From Envelope-Sized Cake Slices to Letterbox Sweet Sets

 - Apr 29, 2017
With the rise of online shopping, some forward-thinking e-retailers have adopted specially designed ecommerce packages that cut down on wasted space and the need to use materials like bubble wrap and peanuts.

Many retailers are now turning to the use of letterbox-sized packages, which can be quickly and easily delivered to a consumer's home, whether they are home or not. This is essential for businesses that ship edible goods such as cakes or newly roasted coffee, and want to emphasize freshness.

As well as fitting products into letterbox-sized packaging, many brands are redesigning their goods so that ordered items can get to consumers as quickly as possible. One of the best examples of this comes from Garçon Wines, which created an extremely narrow bottle that can be slotted through a letterbox.
