Shipping Adventures

Shipping materials!

Yesterday and today have been exciting days for me since I just launched Amid frigid temperatures and Texas-sized (in this case not everything is bigger in Texas) snow flurries I have been wrapped up with finding the perfect packaging for my Bags by Jo products. I really like the Kraft look, similar to this gorgeous packaging I found on San Diego-based  Acres of Hope’s  photography blog.

I also like designs with black tones mixed in with the kraft brown- I think it adds elegance and poise. Its almost a little edgy too in some cases. Something about the strong black with the earthy kraft color is just really nice.  This packaging from Cornelia and Co. is spot on.


Black on Kraft

Absolutely love that one.

Armed with design inspirations I set off to find some packaging for my first online sale (YAY!). And I came up with the packaging pictured here. The style will most likely evolve over time, but I rather like it :).

I ended up with a “Thank You” stamp which is just precious, some black washi tape, black and Kraft paper for wrapping, adhesive Kraft logo labels and adorable striped twine. All of it so cute and a joy to use. Looking forward to adding a little special something to many more packages to come.
