Hello, Summer!

May 22nd, 2014 No comments

Spring is nearly over and summer is just around the corner! Our thoughts have been full of summer displays and packaging ideas and our inspiration is coming from our new burlap jewelry display line and the chevron merchandise bags. What lovely items have been your inspiration this year?

The burlap jewelry displays are just dreamy… a grainy, textured surface speckled with brown and beige makes these displays overflow with charm and character. Deep jewel tones really stand out against this background (we’re talking about those purples and greens and blues), although, if we’re really being honest, just about any jewelry style will be complemented by the burlap displays. From shabby chic to indie to rustic elegance, these displays will make your style stand out even more.

And those chevron bags? Can we just say y-u-m? If your head isn’t spinning with thoughts of summertime fun after looking through these bags, we don’t know what’ll get you there. They make us think of warm air, picnics on the beach, and juicy slices of watermelon. Each one of these six different colors makes us think of another summer memory. Pair any of the colorful chevron bags with either tissue paper or raffia for a cheerful summer packaging look.

Creative Gift Packaging

May 1st, 2014 No comments

Packaging the items your customers have just purchased doesn’t have to be expensive or complicated! There are a few ways to package that are simple, pretty, and won’t break your budget.

Drawstring Pouches

Pouches are an attractive and inexpensive way to gift wrap almost any small item. There is a lot of room for creativity or special edition packaging since pouches are available in such a wide range of colors and fabrics. Organza might be great for spring, velvet for winter, and a metallic silver or gold for the holidays. You can also keep packaging consistent by always using an organza pouch, but changing the colors depending on the time of year.

Raffia-wrapped Boxes

Cotton-filled boxes wrapped with raffia (or ribbon) are a great way to package! You can easily customize the colors to complement your branding, the season, product promotions and more.

Tissue Paper, Kraft paper, or Newsprint

Another creative gift packaging idea is to wrap your products in either a colorful tissue paper or in newspaper. Like the cotton-filled boxes, this method of packaging is easily accented with raffia of ribbon. Consider using an accent color or two that will match your logo, as this will help you with branding at a minimal cost.
