packaging and branding your business

I am so thrilled to have some beautiful new stickers to use for my packaging!

In just a couple weeks, I will be participating in the Deepwood Vintage Market.  I wanted to have something to put on the market bags that was cute and would help my customers remember where their purchase came from. 

My wonderful designer, Megan of Red Pearl Designs, helped me create these:


I love the unique shape, and that it includes my webpage.
(did you also notice that I switched to a dot com?)

 Everything I use now has my logo (branding) on it.  
Business cards, sales tags, even my watermark on all my photos.

With Pinterest and social media, I also watermark all my Etsy photos- you never know where it will end up, and if someone will find you through that source!


The stickers came in this handy little tin. 
 It's great for keeping them safe until I need to use them, and small enough for me to toss in my purse or pricing bag when I am out and about.

I also will use these as my packaging for my Etsy sales:


Much prettier than then invisible tape I was using!

I also started a new board on Pinterest- creative packaging.  

I am always incredibly impressed by Anthropologie's packaging, and the amount of thought, creativity and care that they put into the smallest details.
Cute gift card pouches, invoice envelopes, sales bags.  

I am making more effort to slow down, craft my product, and be proud of each and every aspect.

Thank you once again Megan, for the beautiful job!

If you'd like to see the amazing project Megan has been working on, you can click here to see on her blog. (hint, he's due in September!)
Her work is stunning, and I am so proud to partner with her.

Before another day goes by, and I forget to post the info again, here's the postcard info on the market!
Mark your calendars!  



I will post updates of items I will be taking with me to the market as time allows.  
It is sneaking up fast!!

If you want first dibs on items and a fun night out, 
be sure to purchase your tickets for the evening soiree.  


I will be offering a special coupon to all my Facebook fans shortly before the show.
