Hi all! I am new to this forum, I am based in the UK and looking to make the venture into honor boxes (Honour in the UK.) After browsing this forum for several weeks I cant seem to see any UK based companies? If you are from the UK and in this business please reach out to me! I have spoken to bhumphreys as everyone will know him, but I just want to get a wider selection of answers too! For those in the business: 1) What is your opinions of using a charity? Do you use charities? I know the laws differ in both countries but is anyone aware of the legal aspect of this? If I went down the route of using a charity would I need to declare some form of legislation or can I simply just donate said amount of profit without and charity licences etc.? 2) In regards to suppliers of boxes I have tried Camerons packaging and Sheridan Systems but the delivery is exceptionally high as you can imagine. I also contacted the Honour Box Guy who was kind enough to give me a quote on his boxes but the same problem occurred. So my question is mainly aimed at UK based people, who are your box suppliers? I think these are my main questions for now as I have done a lot of research on this and im excited to get going. I am aware of several success stories but if anyone would like to share with me their journey or any advice that they did or would do different upon starting their journey, I would love to hear it! Thanks for taking your time to read this! Joe
I placed my first 6 honor boxes yesterday so I am excited to see how they will do. I used the sheridan locator and they are going to locate my ohter 4 boxes too. I do have a few questions and concerns though. 2 of my boxes were placed at waffle houses. And employees in both of the locations pretty much said it may not be a good idea to place the boxes there because their customers like to steal. I figured shortage is a part of owning boxes so I placed them anway and will probably give it a month and see what happens. Another location I placed the box and the guy said last month another lady box of candy got stolen. (Don't think it was a mint honor box). So I am concerned. Has anybody else placed boxes in locations where employees warned them that it may not be a good idea? If so how did it turn out? One more question I put 50 mints in each box would it be best to check the boxes in 2 weeks or 1?
