Production Production

We offer tons of product and lots of package options. To make sure your package size and product is ready, we send our stock through production. This is where our bulk inventory is broken down into more manageable pack sizes. There are interesting machines that help us sort and count as well as a dedicated team to do what machines can't. After production, product is stocked in and ready to be pulled for your orders.


These are the friendly folks who actually fill your order. Our warehouse is always advancing in technology, and we use moveable drawers (repurposed dry cleaning racks actually) to make our process as efficient as possible.

Then your order is sorted, counted and packed up. We make sure to put our signature piece of teal tissue paper with a packed with love sticker on top so it's like opening a present when you receive your order. Then our mail carriers pull up and take the boxes away.
