Product Review : House of Jars

I love being apart of the handmade community. There is something about a group of handmade artists coming together to supporting each other that holds a special place in my heart because it's more than just ordering an item or a gift online. Handmade is a special treasure that someone has thought of with you in mind, and created it with their own hands. Special right?! 

So any chance I get , I like to try a new shop and support their dream of sharing their craft. Sometimes the product isn't always what you thought it would be, but sometimes it's more, and this time was one of those instances. 

I came across House of Jars etsy shop, when I saw a product of hers in my Instagram feed. As I was immediately drawn to the southern flair of her products, she had me at mason jars and striped straws. 

A few things I noticed (and was highly impressed with):

Communication on my custom order was really great, and it made me feel comfortable with the product I was getting. She was also very prompt in her responses and made sure I was completely satisfied with my custom jar before shipping.

Julie gave me options of where I wanted my logo placed, how many times, colors, sizes, you name it. As a shop owner myself, giving people too many options can be stressful in production, and in the end I was very grateful for the options she gave me (even thought I wanted every color!!) and she really seemed to want to work with me, if I had something different in mind. 

My jar was a 24oz glass jar with a tight seal lid and a snug fitting straw. I won't lie... I was kind of expecting it to be plastic. It would have been fine either way, but I was pleasantly surprised that it was a thick durable glass. My logo also looked really crisp for a smaller more intricate application.

Note: I dropped my glass the other day on accident and it didn't break. I am not saying if you don't treat it with care that your's won't shatter, but I was pleased to see that it did not seem to be affected by my clumsiness.

Shipping was fast which I loved, because there is nothing worse than being excited about a new purchase and having to wait a long time for it! 

My jar arrived carefully packaged and wrapped in bubble wrap. It also included special care instructions to ensure the longevity of the vinyl on my jar.

As I am sure you know by now, I highly recommend this shop for the cutest mason jars around.
