Amazon Fulfillment

Today we shipped a whole bunch of Snake Sandbags™ to Amazon so they can handle fulfillment for us. What does that mean? Not only are we listed on Amazon, but if you are a Prime Member or purchase qualifying products, including Snake Sandbags™, totaling over $35, you can get free shipping! Sweet deal!

Now that we have converted our inventory to become theirs, our listings have become inactive. It's a strange thing since our products are in transit and Amazon has an exact count of items we shipped, yet out listings are inactive and not searchable within We expect this to be resolved by next week, but if you would like check out the Snake Sandbags™ product page on Amazon, click here.

Since you can't buy them right now, we're planning to give a few away next week. Stay tuned.

Our labels that are sewn on all Snake Sandbags have evolved over time. Today, they are sewn right onto the Snake Sandbags so there is no tag hanging. It is also the case that our printers had challenges with initial runs of printing on canvas, which the labels are made of. Instead of trashing them, we said why throw them out and we used them. Some people got some Snake Sandbags with labels with lettering in colors like green. It doesn't affect functionality of the sandbags and those who have Snake Sandbags with tags or labels with funky colors, you should feel lucky. Those are not around anymore. I do have to say we found a small box of these funky colored labels, but they do not meet our production specs for size. Otherwise, more would be out there.

Another thing about the current labels is they are sewn individually and not by an automated machine, so they are not always perfect. It's a bit quirky, but we go with it. Once again, it doesn't affect functionality of the sandbags, but it's our human touch to it. It's not that we have standards, we do. So, if you look at the labels and it's a bit off, know that someone put their hard work into it even thought it's not perfect.

Orders for the U.S. are now being process by!

Though we enjoyed using our previous shopping cart, it had some limitations that were not going to grow with us. We are sad and excited at the same time.

Our next step is have our products fulfilled by so prime members and qualifying orders over $35 get shipping for free. Yeah! Look for that in the next few weeks.

Hello Snake Sandbags World!

Welcome to the Snake Sandbags™ blog. This is our first post after the re-install. Our previous blog crashed. Bummer. We look forward to get back on track and re-post all the previous entries from the beginning of 2013!
