I have a word of advice to those of you who ship your work and smoke
cigarettes. Please remember that cardboard and paper are porous and hold
the smell of smoke. I hate receiving an order and opening the box to that
stinky smell. I just received a supply order today and yuck. This seems
to happen most often with smaller companies. Large mail-order companies
most likely have no-smoking-in-the-warehouse policies.
Fortunately this was just a supply order. What if I was a retail store and
an artist had just sent me some of her/his work in cigarette-smelling
I was a smoker for ten years, and haven't smoked for six. No one holier
than a convert, eh? :)
Thanks for listening, soap box mode off.
