Sometimes it's all about the Packaging - Page 2

post #16 of 20
Late response here...summer icon_rolleyes.gif I'm a Minnesota girl but I think a Phoenix (or anyplace warm) girl at heart. It's been 104 degrees here and I think I'm the only one not complaining icon_razz.gif I think we'd get along well too;o) I love doing amped up parties for my kids (even though I think the inlaws think I'm nuts). Themed decorations, tables, I even had a Navi from Avatar one for my daughter. My kids were a little obsessed for a while. Haa! SoI love your site and I will be checking it often to get ideas! Your low versions are my high versions icon_razz.gif

I would love to learn more about packaging. Thanks for sharing your ideas. I see custom labels on cookie bags all the time. How do they do that?? Is there a program that I can download that prints those?

If you have a flare for graphic design, you can do it yourself! That, unfortunately, is not my skill set. But go to Etsy and search for "printables" and you'll find tons of different party themes with gorgeous graphics you can print out and use. My favorite company is Frog Prince Paperie http://frogprincepaperie.com.

Then all you need to do is print out the graphics on adhesive label paper, cut out, and use! Most printables designers make standard sized graphics that work well with scrapbook punches so you can get perfect, easy cut-outs.

If you don't have a color printer, you can take the files to any print shop (small independent, Staples, etc.) and they'll print them out for you.

If you're looking for a custom label for a business, I'd go to the custom sticker manufacturers. I buy so many stickers for my business (not baking) at a time, that I go years between orders, and never remember who I used before. There are lots of good companies out there, though. Just google around.
