Back story: I've been trying to make plans for 2019, setting goals, and figuring out what to change/not change - which has led to a lot of talking to customers. One thing that I took away - of the forty or so customers who I talked with most would actually like smaller bars so they could try different soaps more often! So I've been mulling this through my brain a bit and the only thing stopping me is that I only have a multi-bar cutter set to 1-1/4". So before I ask my husband to spend $120 to build me a new cutter, I thought I would try it out rather roughly. My multi-bar cutter is set up so that I have a straight edge to line up the loaf with, and the wires are spaced so that I have a thinner end cut (approx a 1 ounce slice) at each end of the loaf. I was thinking that I could cut my bars as usual, and then cut the end slice off each regular bar - giving me a smaller regular bar and a 1 oz soap slice. I could use those slices as samples, but I think that would be too much loss. The purpose of making the regular soaps smaller is so people can try more soaps, so maybe a soap slice bundle would sell well to those people as well. Labeling shouldn't be hard, I use the same base recipe, it's usually just my liquids that change up so it seems I can easily note that on a label as needed - or if I group my beer soaps into one bundle, etc. My concern with packaging, is 1) I don't want to hide the soaps in wrapping and 2) I'm worried about scents mingling, so I do think I need to each bar "protected" somehow. Does anyone have ideas for packaging? I did a google search and most of them were loose bundles tied with twine - which is totally not going to work for my style. Also, if you have done the soap slice bundles yourself, how well did they sell for you? Any dos or don'ts appreciated!
