Quick Breads - a big Thank'eee for your Comments

After yesterday's post I received many extremely helpful comments on my Quick Breads - Blogger friends can't be beat! I have a lot to think about in terms of packaging - the cello bags idea was great - I will have to check out Dollar Tree, Michaels, and other such stores. If it looks like it might be a regular thing after the holidays, I would see about ordering online from a 'green' supplier. I saw one web page that had actual paper cartons you could bake various breads in, and sell them in the same container after applying an 'over-wrap'. I don't recall the actual price, but the baking cartons looked sort of 'rustic' and 'back-woodsy' (just my style!), and I remember thinking it the cost was reasonable. I will have to do some more research later if this looks like a 'GO'.

Seems the general consensus is that $4 is NOT unreasonable - some thought $5 or even $6 for a final price would not be too much to put on the sticker. Using organic food items justifies the price, I believe. If it were made from ordinary cheap-o Food Club brand flours & sugars, rejected Gerber 'nannas, Spartan brand margarine, and then - powered by "Battery Chicken" eggs, perhaps the cost could go for a mere dollar-fifty per loaf.

Now, any ideas for a NAME that might be used for these baked goods? Amazingly Amish-like is rather long....and if I called it Amish baked goods, (a little light-hearted humor here) the Amish might WHOOP me - I'm a feared of them, as they have FLAILS shaped like WOODEN SPOONS!!! GOOD GOSH! (makes me shiver just thinkin about it!) I like the idea of the horse and buggy insignia, but the Amish have that pretty much on everything they sell!

If you have any ideas at all for me, fire away, please - I'm always ready to listen and learn from others' experiences! Thanks for your assistance thus far!

Maybe you could name it something relating to your blog and the Corgis. It would be real original. And who's going to forget bread that features Corgis? I like what you have at the top of your blog with the Corgis. Maybe use that and something like "From Corgi With Love?" It's early and I'm just getting a few blogs read before I hop over to the dentist. I'll think some more. Hey, you could always come up with a picture of a "Corgi-drawn buggy" with loaves of bread! I may be bordering on silly, but then, all the brand names that usually stick out in my mind are ones that are really different.

Another thought: or just "Expressly Corgi Bread."

I love all breads, especially what the Amish bake. They are such wonderful cooks. Since I do not bake much anymore, I will the baking of the Quick Bread to you.

I think that the use of the word Amish" is too limiting unless you are Amish. I think that something like "Corgibread" or "The Corgi Company" would be good. You don't want anything too long.
If you are going to have a business for a long time what would you call it? How would it look on business cards, brochures and boxes. What sounds like you?...
