We can hardly believe it’s been 10 years and 500 blog posts since we first launched the Nashville Wraps Blog! It all began February 2008 with a mission to provide our customers with great content they can use. From gift packaging ideas to retail marketing tips, it is truly a decade’s worth of great information for gift and gourmet retailers.
That same year Nashville Wraps announced our newly created Green Way® brand of eco-friendly packaging, another huge milestone for Nashville Wraps. Since then, hundreds of thousands of people have read our posts. We are honored and grateful to be a source for all things packaging for your business.
Carli, Mandi (our newest contributor), Priscilla and myself Buffie, all LOVE sharing helpful content with our readers! We thought it would be fun to share some of our most popular posts, how-tos and contributors. But first, what can you find on our blog? Keep reading…

Most LOVED Post Ever – Creating the Chalkboard Look!
Our graphic designer Priscilla wrote our most popular and shared post, “How to Create a Chalkboard Look” which was even featured on BrightNest’s Four Creative Wrapping Ideas and 30 Creative Gift Wrapping Ideas for Your Inspiration.
Nashville Wraps Customer Spotlights
One of the best parts of our blog is our Featured Customers. These provide the opportunity to learn from our many amazing Nashville Wraps customers – from small, independent gift retailers and gourmet shops, to gift basket businesses, to online businesses like Etsy retailers.
We adore ALL our customers, but one of our favorites is the Goo Goo Shop. It was so much fun to share how they package their yummy candies for Nashville locals and tourists alike. Not only do they use our custom printed shopping bags, they increase Goo Goo Cluster sales by selling them in threes using our clear cello bags tied with raffia ribbon for grab-n-gifts!
You Gotta Have Friends
Another beloved Nashville Wraps customer and blog contributor is Anders Ruff Custom Designs. Maureen Anders and Adria Ruff are party planners extraordinaire. Their boutique-style DIY AR Workshops lets customers make their own custom signs, pillows and more.
Gift wrapping expert Gina Tepper is another great Wraps friend. She has written some creative posts which our customers love. Her designs have appeared on ABC, NBC & FOX affiliates in Washington DC. She’s been a judge for Scotch Brand’s “Most Gifted Wrapper” contest.
She created this fun layered ribbon how-to using Double Faced Satin Ribbon and our Doodle Garden Collection. This exclusive design is perfect for feminine birthdays, get well and thank-you gifts, and perfect for teen girls.
