Buyer's Notes: Stand out w/ Packaging

How awesome is this packaging?
Bario-Neal boutique jewelry is packaged in 100% recycled glass bottles.

Seen any stand-out packaging lately? I thought it would be fun to point out and share Best Of's - feel free to share any stand-outs that you've seen lately (including your own of course!)

Oh, now that is clever! My packaging is ever-evolving, along with my business cards. I'm constantly changing both. *sigh* So indecisive.

I just got the earrings I ordered from Laurel Denise at the NY gift show, and her packaging is simple and very pretty, with a kraft box, french pastry string (you know what I mean, I can't think of the right word) and a kraft-colored sticker with her logo. As a whole, it's very nice and unobtrusive.

Aww...thanks, Cassie! So glad you like!

That is such a great idea!
My packaging is currently a work in progress, so this was very inspring to see.

Oh, and Laurel--the earrings are *even better* than the packaging ;) They're lovely!

Marichelle said...

oooh Cassie please do a shop+tell!!! please!!

By the way, print sellers: I love the little extra postcards that some of you include in your packages. I think it' a nice touch and I always think of it as a freebie!

valerie: me too! I can't seem to stop tinkering with it!

hi Laurel, Anna, Judit, Tina, Molly, Kaitlyn & Barb - Thanks for saying hello!

My, thanks for sharing your packaging. I love the jewelry boxes!!!

I'm gonna try to keep this going and perhaps look for more accessible examples - as much as I love the bottles, I'm assuming most of us don't have the volume or funds (at least not yet) to provide such a luxurious & lavish presentation. But inspiring nonetheless!

Oooooh i like it, i'd love the bottles as well, they would look good lined up on a windowsill refecting the light. A good place for business cards is www.moo.com they do cute little minicards with funky designs or you can put your own on and they are really good for displaying handmade earrings and putting on packaging as tags.
