Recently, we have been picking up hobbies, old or new, like never before. This is most pronounced in younger demographics. From knitting to crochet and painting to pot-making, all rising in popularity since the pandemic. The digital generation finds inspiration online by following tutorials on social media. They buy kits and products through these platforms. Then go on to sell their creations online too. Regardless, if it’s for downtime or side-hustles on Etsy. The way we make and create is increasingly digital. As a result, online retail for arts and crafts is rapidly evolving. This requires creativity from customers and companies alike.
eCommerce fulfilment is invaluable for the arts and crafts industry. Allowing businesses to stay relevant in the ever-growing digital world. Online stores, such as Etsy, soar in popularity. The diversity of hobbies results in equally diverse arts and crafts supplies and merchandise. This requires systematic inventory management and storage solutions, to handle wide product ranges, that are flexible and well-suited for seasonal changes. Speed and consistency are an essential part of arts and crafts fulfilment. Automated processes and experienced fulfilment teams are critical to meeting consumer expectations of fast delivery. This allows customers to be rest assured the correct products will arrive on time. Refine the whole fulfilment process to be more efficient and profitable, by outsourcing arts and crafts fulfilment to third-party logistics partners.
