My partner, Victor Pleshev, the architect who designed the Fitz Like A Glove™ Ironing Board Cover for his mother. To help her with her ironing when she was recovering from a stroke. Realised we had a dilemma.
How were we going to package the Fitz Like A Glove™ Ironing Board Cover?
We contacted packaging companies. And were flummoxed to discover we could have whatever packaging we liked. So long as we purchased in quantities of 10,000 units.
We didn’t know if we were going to sell 100 Fitz Like A Glove Ironing Board Covers. Let alone 10,000.
Victor discovered that after our sewing company cut out the ironing board covers, there was a panel at the side left over. Just wide enough to make a pocket. To contain the cover.
The result was electrifying. The Fitz Like A Glove™ Ironing Board Cover. When packed. Looked like a handkerchief. Sitting inside the breast pocket of a beautifully tailored suit.
The door that packaging opened for us.
Gifts. For all occasions.
Mother of the bride. For last minute touch ups.
Thank you for letting us spend the weekend with you.
Gifts to adult children leaving home for the first time.
Father’s Day. For the significant number of young family men who now iron.
Grandparents to adult grandchildren.
Aunts and uncles. To nephews. And nieces.
And the quirkiest one of all. Partners. Who iron together. Who have their individual boards. But won’t allow the other to share their ironing board. Or. Their Fitz Like A Glove™ Ironing Board Cover!
It’s been our experience in business. That whenever someone puts a stumbling block in front of us. We jump over it. And are better for it.
