    Discreet Boxes

    UGH! I failed at intercepting the UPS guy.

    I wish that TB had non-branded / more discreet boxes for shipping at Christmas time!

    Ah man...

    Next time: ask us to build the box inside out. That way the logos are on the inside!

    I had no idea this was an option. Brilliant!

    If there's any way to make that an option at checkout...that would be AMAZING for those of us that live in high-theft areas.

    This isn't a problem limited to TB. I ordered a custom item from another company, and in the notes asked for unidentifiable packaging - their logo and full name was on three sides of the box.

    Bummer. Maybe he won't Google it.

    From his "gift-list", I bought a bag for my husband (not TB unfortunately) - and asked for Christmas wrapping. I paid 4.90 EUR for a wrapping box, with written on it: the name of the company (arf!) AND some catchword with the word "bag" on it (re-arf). I mean, seriously guys???

    I'm already thinking of ways to convince my husband to send back the whole thing and get a TB bag instead

    We thought of that too! It's on our to-do list for 2018.

    You can also have UPS ship to any UPS Store and you can just come get it there. That can be useful.

    Having said that, what are the odds that some random person will know a Tom Bihn box is valuable?
