Welkom Framing and packaging business
The businesses are both in the same building, which saves on rent and electricity being shared. Another great benefit is that we both draw different customers, but they invariably end up walking through the other display as well, creating great additional exposure and business.
The business has an office, sales counters for both businesses, a well lit and very neat display area. The workshops where the framing, boxes and candles are made is separated from the display area. We also have installed a deck above the office which enabled us to buy our products in greater quantities and store them in a safe out of the way space. This offered savings in the orders and transport costs due to larger quantities being ordered.
The packaging business deals with household packaging such as cellophane bags, plastic bags, etc. also gift boxes and bags, plastic and glass bottles. We also supply packing boxes, bubble wrap, tubing, packing tape, etc. One of our busy activities is to manufacture custom boxes as per order. We do the decorations on gift boxes to order. We make candles to order for weddings, birthdays, funerals and various other functions for which we do custom decorations and colors with a variety of shapes and sizes of candles.
The framing and art side does standard framing of pictures, photos and paintings. We also do box framing for shirts, jerseys, blazers and sport achievments. We do blocking, stretching and pressing. All the professional machines are included in the sale.
All of the above services offered are manufactured by specialised staff, who will be available to stay with the company. We also have a trained shop assistant who manages the store on day to day basis, which will mean the new owners do no have to be present, in store, to manage the business.
