Finish Line Stretch Loops Help Bumbleberry Honey Farms Spread the Joy

People love fancy embellishments on their gift items and stretch bows help tie everything together. Last year, Karen Sandusky Mosholder, founder and “Queen Beekeeper” of Bumbleberry Honey Farms in Somerset, PA, began using Finish Line Custom Finishing's stretch bows and elastic hang tag loops on her specialty honey items. Below, Karen discusses her business and the value of dressing up her jars with Finish Line’s products.

Finish Line:

How did you become “Queen Beekeeper” at Bumbleberry Honey Farms?

Karen:

Every year, I make the same New Year’s resolution — to learn something new. About nine years ago, I decided to take a beekeeping class and quite simply fell in love. There is something very satisfying about working with honeybees. A couple of years later, I decided to try and make a go of it as a business, and in 2011, Bumbleberry Farms began its journey.

Finish Line:

What made you decide to enhance your products with stretch bows and hang tags?

Karen:

Because the bees put so much effort into gathering nectar (honeybees visit about 2 million flowers to make just one pound of Bumbleberry Farms honey) I want my products to reflect that. So I go for beautiful embossed, corked jars and lovely packaging. Bows with hang tags lend themselves to that hand-crafted look.

Finish Line:

How has Finish Line helped you do what you want with your products?

Karen:

I recently picked up some large national accounts that hit right at the height of the holiday season and Finish Line came through with very tight deliveries. Originally, we hand-tied the tags on the jar with ribbon. Now with the elastic pre-tied bands, we’ve reduced our production time.

Finish Line:

Our company prides itself on helping customers find the perfect solutions for their products. What were some challenges Finish Line’s customer service representatives helped you solve?

Karen:

Actually, my printer recommended Finish Line. Once I sent Finish Line several jars of honey they came up with the elastic solution.
