Hi guys,

I want to know if packaging matters to people. I use durable, not cheap packaging that can be reused. A bag you can open and close multiple times, that seals. Does the presentation trump the quality of the kratom? I came close to giving in and getting flashy packaging. Can't wait to hear from you.


Thanks,

Stephen

I have ordered from you guys and I did not mind the packaging. The sticker was what was important to me. I have several samples and strains that vendors did not label with their name so I can hardly figure out where they came from to order more of strains I liked. My opinion is as long as is it sealed good and labeled as to strain and who it came from I am happy :)

I prefer durable and plain packaging. I'm not a fan of flashy like the headshop kratom bags but plain and durable is great. I don't want the package to make it look like this commercialised young person exciting drug, but rather that it clearly states the strain and weight and name of vendor. I think mmmspeciosa does a great job with their bags if you want to check out their site.

Flashy doesn't matter, but bags need to be high enough quality to reseal repeatedly and easily. Really thin bags tend to irritate me for that reason. Most importantly, each bag needs to be labeled with the strain, company, and/or website. It just shows pride in the product and makes it a much better experience for the customer all the way around. Bottom line? Quality kratom should be the priority.

Just my 2 cents.

I prefer nice simple and usable. I don't like flashy packaging. I like to organize my product, and if the packaging isn't a simple zip bag then I transfer it to one. I especially don't like packaging that looks nice but can't be closed. To me, the perfect package is a nice quality ziplock with a descriptive label with a nice font and color design on the label. I prefer the bag that contains all products ordered to be heat sealed, or each product itself heat sealed, just something that shows it hasn't been tampered with. I like ounces to come in 3x4 zip bags, and 4 ounces to come in 4x6 zip bags. It doesn't matter to me if the zip bag is colored or not. I think the semi opaque uv blocking zip bags look pretty neat though.

I have received a 500 gram sized bag from Top Notch and have received ounce sized bags from Top Notch. The larger bag with the solid white at the zip is a quality bag. The ounce sized bags are cut crooked and look kinda.... Really, for me, if your ounce sized bags were the same quality as your larger bags all would be peachy. Ive seen some just heat seal the very top of the clear zip bags and that works well as long as once you cut the heat sealed part off you can still get a grip on the remaining.
I think simple but quality is the key.

I could care less about the Flashy Packaging. I care about whether or not it seal good when used again & again & is easy to open & close. It has to be Labeled good also. So I the Flashiness doesn't matter at all to me as long as it Keeps The Kratom Nice & Fresh Away From Heat, Air & Humidity. Quality is King when it comes to Kratom Vs. Presentation in my Opinion. You doing the right thing getting Durable Packaging instead of Cheap. ;)

I agree with jerBurnz, and madmax as well. I forgot to mention, being able to get a grip of the lip to open the bag is very important as well, I have received heat sealed bags that i could hardly get open without really trying lol. So i really like the bags you guys use as they are easier to open. :-bd

Flashy, no. Durable with a good seal is appreciated. The bag that I received today which contained 6 oz was fine. Your label is fine. The only thing I could add to the conversation is a recommendation that batch numbers be noted on the sticker. Herbaldom and others do that. Any thoughts? Bye the way, for anyone who didn't know, Stephen is a Vendor who cares and communicates promptly and clearly.

I find that flashy packaging only matters to those who do not know what there looking for. From a business owner standing point, I would look for it above many other things, because people will buy flashy looking packaging for that simple fact.

Take the brand Free River Distributing, they have really good packaging, but it also goes along with a really awesome product.

Here's a couple photos of their packaging, I just love it:





Flashy packaging should not matter to you.

However, product labeling should matter. Look at the ingredients being listed and the manner in which the product is directed to be used. This will tell you almost everything you need to know about the product & manufacturing company.
