Ceramix Competition
The Ceramix Competition for the Large Ceramic Bunny Platter was won by Carol du Toit from Saint Helena Bay on the West Coast.
Carol du Toit winner of the First Ceramix Competition

There was great excitement at Ceramix as we packed and shipped the prize.

I have an obsession with Blogs and Forums. On a Forum I frequent I asked them to have a look at the Ceramix site and give me some feedback on what they thought. (If you have some constructive criticism about my site I would love you to contact me as I am sure there are many things I have not thought about. These do it yourself sites can be a bit daunting especially if you do not have any experience.) Anyway they had lots of good things to say about my site and advised me to rectify a few things which I have done. They especially liked the images. Thank you Helen du Plessis for the beautiful photographs. What was quite funny  was that their main concern was that the ware would never arrive at its destination safely. So I thought it would be a good idea to show you how much care I put into packing your orders. I know I am packaging properly because I have had absolutely no comeback and I ship lots of cartons.

I use a 12 Step packaging process and offer a No Risk Guarantee. If your wares do not arrive safely I will replace them with exactly the same items free of charge.

Ceramix Ceramic Bunny Platter is waiting to be packed.

The Ceramix Bunny Platter is waiting to be packed so that we can ship it to Carol du Toit. I am so happy that it is going to such a wonderful lady who makes beanies and scarves for a local helping hand organisation.

Ceramix Bunny Ceramic Platter is wrapped first with unprinted news paper.

Step 1: I wrap the Ceramix Bunny Platter in unprinted paper.

The Ceramix Bunny Ceramic Platter is wrapped with several layers of unprinted paper.

Step 2: Several layers of paper are applied.

The Ceramix Bunny Platter is wrapped with Bubble Pack.

Step 3: I then wrap the ware with many layers of bubble pack. I do not skimp on packaging material. When I pack a box I think about how crazy I would be not to pack the ware properly as this would mean another item, more packaging material and an additional courier cost. Shipping this box to Saint Helena Bay was not cheap so can you imagine having to do it twice. Ceramix offers free shipping so you will only pay once and we will carry any risk. Courier companies do not insure breakable items anyway. They will only insure for the loss of a package.

The Ceramix Platter is then packed in a box.

Step 4: The ware is then packed in a box. The box is then filled with more bubble pack.

The box is then taped closed.

Step 5: The box is then taped closed.

The box is wrapped in more bubble pack.

Step 6: The box is then wrapped in more bubble pack.

The box is then packed into a larger box.

Step 7: The smaller box is then packed into a larger box as we always double box and use double walled thick boxes.

The bos is then filled with more bubble pack.

Step 8: The box is then filled with more bubble pack so that the box inside cannot move.

Free Ceramix Gifting Bag is added.

Step 9: The free Ceramix Gifting Bag is added at the top of your box.

The box is then taped closed.

Step 10: The carton is then securely taped closed.

Fluorescent FRAGILE stickers are then applied.

Step 11: Ten Fluorescent FRAGILE stickers are then applied.

Step 12: The carton is now labeled, the courier collection is arranged and the carton is then collected.

Naturally with all the effort we put into the packaging the Bunny Platter arrived safely.

Carol was very happy with her prize.

We do hope that she will share pictures of it in use so that everyone can get to see how she is enjoying her platter.

Please let me know which Ceramix item you would like to win in our next Ceramix Facebook competition in the comments section below.

Thank you to Helen du Plessis who took the photograph & did the layout for the competition and to Megan Wallace who took the photographs of the packaging process.

Should you require any additional information please do not hesitate to contact me.

Have a great week.
