You're welcome. When I left the house for work, they were on their way to the Post Office. Smile

Posted in Dapper Dragon Site News

Our first Contender, Cinnamon Bun, was a pretty big hit. Who doesn't like a cinnamon bun? I'm happy to say that the positive response means that Cinnamon Bun has become our latest regular scent. Full sized pucks are available in the Etsy store now.

That leaves the contender spot open, and I've filled it with Sandalwood. This particular sandalwood fragrance oil also contains hints of vanilla and musk for a robust but soothing version of sandalwood. They have also gone up in the Etsy store.

Finally - you asked for it and we listened. I have been evaluating samples and have arrived at a decision regarding tubs for our soaps. I'm going with a low-profile, black plastic double-walled tub. It fits nicely in the hand, and has a sleek appearance.

SOTD with Tub

I've considered a lot of different options for selling and packing them. I believe I shall make a portion of them available empty. The rest I will fill with soap as its made, rather than selling that soap as individual pucks. At this time, I still plan to sell pucks as refills. The exact percentage of soaps that come as pucks versus filled tubs will probably be fine-tuned as sales data accumulates.

The tubs will add to the price and the cost of shipping, but not overwhelmingly so. I hope you'll agree with me that the convenience and appearance make up for a small increase in price.

I'm pretty excited about the new changes coming. I hope you are, too.

Still considering whether or not to put a band around the body. It's not a very big tub, so any band would be quite small. But it also sort of asks for a bit more ornamentation.

To clear up any confusion:

The new tubs are not yet in house and available. The currently listed stock is just wrapped pucks.

I'll make an announcement when they are available.

I got a couple of communications that made it seem like at least a few people were under the impression that the tubbed soap was already on sale. I didn't want anyone to be disappointed.

Thanks for sharing your art! The new containers look fab. I agree not much room for a band on the containers, but how about a contrasting color racing stripe? Maybe even crossing the cap and stretching to the container below. Something like that, I'm sure you get the idea...

Regards -David

Well, the tubs are here and the vinyl labels are here. Guess it's time to start making some soap!

Look what came in the mail!

Looks pretty good.

I want to test fit some boxes and envelopes and double check my math, but expect to see empty containers up for sale in the next couple of days, and the first tubs of soap as well.

And We're Off!

The tubs are now a real product for Dapper Dragon. For customers that have already bought our soaps, I've put a portion of our stock of tubs up empty (with optional label.) Etsy link.

I made my first batches of tubbed soap last night as well. You can see I have a column mold and tubs set up for each scent. I'll be offering refill pucks as well as soaps in the tubs. These two are Cinnamon Bun (left) and Blood Orange (right).

Those listings should go up tonight.

For the rest of the scents, I have added the option to add a tub when you buy a soap. It will come w/ a sticker on the soap tub so you don't need to worry about fiddling with transferring them. As each scent gets added in tubs, this option will disappear again.

I just purchased a puck/tub of your Ice Wyrm. I'm very excited to give it a try. I love a peppermint and rosemary soap!

The first tubs of soap have been prepared and are now listed on Etsy. Tubs of Cinnamon Bun and Blood Orange are available in our new Shaving Soap Tubs section.

Refill pucks of those scents were also added to the existing listings.

Happy Shaving!
Eric
