|New Embergrass Stickers|
|Old-Brand packages ready to post|
I knew that I definitely wanted to get more of those cute little stickers (from moo.com) so I put the new Embergrass logo in the centre and simply added the website address across the bottom. Sorted!
Next the tissue paper... I had been using up tissue paper leftover from items I had sent as gifts to my friends or reusing paper that had wrapped items I had bought or received. The assortment of bright, bold colours fitted in fine with the Carnelion logo but just weren't right for Embergrass. I was running low on tissue paper stocks anyway so I have decided to go for more pastel shades in yellows, browns and pinks to match the circles in my header background.
Inside the Package
I started by designing cards to attach my jewelry to - these can also be used for display if I ever get around to doing any craft shows or selling in stores. You can see them on the right, I'm so pleased with the way they turned out, exactly what I wanted! I will post a tutorial soon explaining how I made them so look out for that if you are interested.
The best thing about these cards is that I can keep the business card out of the package itself without also taking out my branding and website address. I also designed a little Copper Care Card to offer advice to customers unfamiliar with copper on how to look after it best.

your order, neatly attached to cards, and a cute little care card.
Outside the Package
Of course, I still want to be sending business cards out with my orders so people don't forget where they got the jewelry they love so much and maybe even tell someone else about me :) I was running low on business cards anyway so now was the perfect time to reorder. I loved my moo cards last time so I ordered more and this time 2 sets! I've taken advantage of their feature of having an assortment of photos on the back of the cards to showcase some of my best items. The front has the circles and grass logo and, of course, all the information.
My 2nd set of business cards are coupon cards to make it really easy for me to send out discount coupon codes to great customers! They look almost exactly the same as my business cards but, instead of my details on the front, they have space for the coupon code and some information about it as well as my website.
If all those gorgeous contents are going to make it safely to their destination they need to be packaged snug and secure against being bashed around with all those other packages but that doesn't mean it has to be boring or unbranded. I'm using standard, light brown bubble mailers because they've served me well so far and they're just the right size to fit the printed insurance label on the front.
I've simply added a home-printed return address label (with the circles and grass logo) on the back and a branded label to the front, on which I write the recipient's address.
