How much does it cost to wrap a gift?
There are several factors that will affect the cost of your project, including what materials are chosen, the complexity of design and how many gifts you need wrapped, among other considerations.
For example, a single gift for a VIP celebrity, wrapped in an elaborate custom design using premium materials to suit their personal style, could run anywhere from $450 to $700 and beyond. For, say, a batch of 125 small gifts, all wrapped in the same elegant paper and classic bow, the fee could range from $1250 to $1625 and up (that’s about $10–$13 per gift). Most projects typically run between $30–$80 per gift, which includes all materials and labour (but not shipping/delivery).
When discussing your project, the more details you can provide, the more precise I can be with an estimated budget. You can tell me about your project here.
How long does it take to get a present wrapped?
My typical turnaround time (with some exceptions) is a minimum of four business days for up to 20 items; for every additional 20 items, add one day. For example, 50 gifts would take a minimum of six business days. More elaborate custom designs will take longer.
Turnaround time is calculated from the time I receive items for wrapping.
Depending on availability, I may be able to complete projects more quickly; on rare occasions, I can provide same-day service. (Please contact me to check.) Rush fees will apply.
Please note that although I can work quickly, the more time I have to work on your project, the more design options and materials choices there will be — some options just aren't available when there are only a few days to complete a project. Timing may also affect cost, as more economical wholesale materials often require a few weeks for delivery.
What’s the benefit of using your service versus wrapping my gifts myself?
For some projects, wrapping the gifts yourself or having a teammate or intern do it is sufficient. My services are best suited to projects when presentation really matters — when it’s important that the quality of wrapping and design aligns with your brand. It’s also worth outsourcing your wrapping to me when you and your team just don’t have the time or the inclination: Are your gift-wrapping skills up to par with the other work you do for your clients? Do you really want to spend three days wrapping gifts? (What’s your time worth? What else could you be doing?)
While I always prefer to provide the complete service from design to execution, I am happy to work with your prepurchased supplies. However, please keep in mind that I cannot guarantee the same level of design and craftsmanship — if the materials are of lesser-quality, it may mean lesser-quality results, even in the hands of a pro like myself!
