Puzzling Over Products (Part 2)
I got another puzzle from a different supplier. It is 8x10 inches and on cardboard. It comes in a cute little box and is the perfect size to slip into a stocking. I love it!
I love it so much that I’m going to put it in my shop even though the margins are not as wonderful as I would like them to be. To get better margins, I will need to go with a third supplier who can give me a cost break for buying more puzzles.
But wouldn’t these make the cutest stocking stuffers? I am willing to have a smaller margin to make these available. The box for the third supplier would be bigger and wouldn’t fit as well in a stocking. So this is what I am thinking. I buy a few of these for the holiday season this year. The puzzle that sells the most this holiday gets an upgrade to the custom printed box with much better margins because I will be buying a larger quantity.
How well these small tester puzzles do will determine if I spend more money to get a larger quantity of puzzles for my shop.
