Dapper Dragon Blog (6)

Welcome to the Dapper Dragon blog. This is where I make announcements about my projects and keep interested followers up to date. I'll also be posting articles of interest about shaving, soap making, and other personal care subjects.

Shipping Policies

Dapper Dragon soaps ships via United States Postal Service. One- and two-item orders are generally sent in a padded mailer to cut down on costs while protecting the merchandise. At three or more items, I switch to Priority Mail flat-rate boxes.

International Shipping

It is an unfortunate truth that shipping anything over the ocean is extremely expensive, and shipping to Canada or Mexico is only a little bit better. However, I will do my best to keep costs down as much as possible.

International Group Buys

If a group of users in a foreign country are interested in organizing a group buy, I'm open to the idea as well. I think it's the best option for an international order larger than a handful of items, for both you and me. I'll ship to you in the most cost-effective way, and charge you my shipping costs, including packing materials and time.

There are just a few requirements before I'd consider it:

  1. 10+ piece order
  2. No reselling. This is a group buy, not a wholesale agreement.
  3. I will want to see the names and orders of each member of the group buy. 
  4. One member of the group will be designated to make the payment and accept shipment.
  5. You may need to wait for new batches of soap to be made, depending on the number and varieties of soaps requested. Before we agree, I'll provide an estimate for the amount of time required to fill your order.

If you have a group that would like to purchase Dapper Dragon, send me a message through the contact page.

There are some big changes on the way at Dapper Dragon.

Stock is back on all regular scents

Written by

I now have soaps in stock on the Etsy store for all of our regular scents.

Tonight I added 12 pucks of Blood Orange.

Not Enough Vanilla In The Jasmine & Vanilla

Well, the results are in, and they are unanimous. The Jasmine & Vanilla needs more vanilla.

The full size pucks sold out today - but there are still plenty of the smaller ones. The 3.25oz pucks actually cost slightly less per oz, as an apology for messing them up. I'll focus on restocking other lower scents, first.

Delivery!

According to USPS, the first few packages are either delivered, or out for delivery. I'm very excited, but also nervous. I can't wait to hear what (if anything) people have to say about my soap.

Opening Weekend Is In the Books

Wow. It was a great weekend for Dapper Dragon Soaps.

Thanks a lot to everyone that stopped by the store, asked a question or placed an order. I'd been worried that we might only get one or two orders, but we actually saw a pretty nice amount of traffic. Enough for me to feel good about the way things are starting, but not enough to put us in danger of selling out right away.

I also finished up the labels that will go on the soaps. The Basics scents will use the same design as the Dapper Dragon label, which is more or less the default. I may make some unique labels for Basics scents that are clearly popular, as Blood Orange seems like it's going to be.

I will be packing up the orders from this weekend tonight and tomorrow, and they'll go out in the mail tomorrow and Tuesday.

This has been a very exciting weekend! I feel like this whole thing just might work.

Last Minute Productivity Drop

The past few days have been a pretty rotten mix of after hours work and illness on my part. That means that I haven't been able to make any new soap as planned on Thursday and Friday. Never fear, though, we'll still be launching on 3/15! And I intend to make multiple batches this weekend, so even the soaps with fewer bars ready should be available.
