Important Info for Our Wholesale Fam
Wholesaler Love, RRP Changes and Christmas Restocks, Oh My!
I want to express my *HUGE* and heartfelt thanks to you for supporting Taylor Made Bliss with your wholesale orders.
I have found my bliss in bringing the magic of essential oils into others’ lives and creating sustainable, oh-so-pretty storage solutions for them, and I wholeheartedly appreciate you for backing my dream.
Every TMB piece is lovingly handcrafted by me, and my heart skips a beat whenever you place a wholesale order. It means everything to me that you value my creations and the countless hours I’ve dedicated to perfecting my craft.
Back in June, I made the decision to increase the pricing of my Oil Huggy collection, to coincide with the new financial year.
While this was a difficult decision, the price rise was necessary to reflect the premium nature of the materials used to produce and package my creations, which include 100% natural cotton and bamboo fabrics and compostable packaging, mailers, and labels.
This price rise, only our second since the inception of Taylor Made Bliss in 2017, is necessary to protect my wellbeing and keep manufacturing on Aussie soil.
In the early days of TMB, I was so excited to have established a business that allowed me to work around chronic pain and be a present mum to my little loves, that I priced down my pieces. That my beautiful customers wanted something I’d fashioned with my own two hands was payment enough!
But as my beloved Huggy soared, I found myself working around the clock to keep up with demand. My original pricing placed little value on the many thousands of hours I invested into the business.
As a result, my recommended retail pricing is now as follows:
▪ Full-size Oil Huggy $47.00
▪ Huggy Mini $34.00
▪ Kids Huggy Mini $39.00
While I appreciate that this is a significant bump from previous pricing, please know that there will not be any further increases, and that you remain entitled to a wholesale discount of forty percent.
I would kindly ask that you please incrementally increase the pricing of products on your channels to reflect the recommended retail pricing by the end of 2021.
A friendly reminder, also, that resale of the Oil Huggy on third-party websites, such as eBay, Etsy, Amazon, and Facebook Marketplace, is strictly prohibited, per the wholesale T&Cs listed here on the Taylor Made Bliss website.
Now to some important info about future wholesale orders …
Going forward, wholesale orders will be allotted to two-week blocks. What this means is that, when you place an order, it will be custom-sewn and fulfilled within the next available two-week block.
If there is one order block ahead of yours, there will be an approximate four-week wait time until your order is complete. If there are two order blocks ahead of yours, there will be an approximate six-week wait time, and so on. Currently, the next available wholesale order block is in early October and will be sent out mid-October.
Please note that these lead times do not include postage, and with current Australia Post delays expected to balloon in the lead-up to Christmas, amid ongoing lockdowns, I encourage you to restock now for the silly season, as I would hate to let you down.
As it’s only me here, sewing up a storm, I can only accept a limited number of orders within each wholesale block to ensure that each piece is of the highest quality.
When you partner with Taylor Made Bliss, you can feel good about aligning with a sustainable brand that is environmentally conscious and gives back to the community.
Your orders are packaged using only compostable and recyclable materials and I avoid plastic use, where possible – you’ll never find synthetic textiles in an Oil Huggy!
Your orders also help to support First Nations People, with a percentage of sales going to Indigenous Literacy Australia.
And together, we’ve put 991 new trees in Australian ground in the last financial year alone, with $1USD from every Oil Huggy sold going to One Tree Planted.
AfterPay is available if you would like to split the cost of your wholesale orders across four, fortnightly payments.
And you are more than welcome to use any of the professional product images featured across the TMB website and social channels, for your own marketing purposes. I simply ask that you please credit @essentialoilimages for his gorgeous photography.
I am in the process of putting together a DropBox of high-resolution product images to share with you, but feel free to save them direct from TMB’s online platforms for the time being.
Thanks for sticking with me through this ultra-long, yet important, email and thanks again for supporting Taylor Made Bliss. Get those Christmas orders in soon!
