In January, as work continued on my WV map painting,
I was sure I’d found the company
to manufacture the puzzles, so
I ordered a puzzle from them
and it came in this box…
with this very cool paper packaging tape.
I loved that tape (and their puzzle) so much…
I was sure this was the company for me…
until I read “Made in China” on the back of the puzzle box.
“I’ll bet that packaging tape was made in China, too,” I fumed.
Some things are not negotiable:
my puzzles and tape had to be made in the U.S.
Well I found a puzzle manufacturer,
[I wrote about that here.]
and a U.S. company that makes custom paper packaging tape!
I painted more rhododendrons, designed my tape,
and ordered a sample piece.
It came today!
Thanks for following along,
