Hi There

Thank you for your question and congratulations on starting your new business venture! I am a big crystal fan and so I know I’ll definitely be a customer at some point!

In terms of setting up a website – Shopify is the best platform to go with. It is simple to use, easy to navigate and you can connect everything to it e.g. shipping label printing, email marketing, and then that way you can have control over your packaging!

I actually specialise in building Shopify websites so if you’re needing some help/have any further questions, don’t hesitate to contact me via annabellelindberg30@gmail.com
