New Tip of the Day

When shipping your packages out to customers it is best to use a return label that just has your first and last name instead of your shop name.
If your shop name makes reference to what you sell, ex. Jenny's Jewels or Carla's Crystal Creations - you may be targeting your package for theft by revealing what the contents of the package might contain.
Don't get me wrong, I am by no means accusing the Postal Service or any of its employees of stealing, but I know by experience that living on a quiet country road can be a perfect opportunity for someone to take my mail.
It's better to be safe than sorry.

I never would have thought of that, but I always use my name anyway. Thanks for the advice!

I always ship packages that way. I don't want to invite any kind of trouble...Also you may tip someone in the household to a possible gift. So just using your name and address is so much wiser. I would hate to ruin a surprise for someone.
