We have spent days trying to find a packaging solution matching our brand and also being affordable. We ended up ordering a few types of food safe packaging for our artisan mulling bags from the Tiny Box Company who you might have seen appearing in the Dragons Den.
To brand the packaging, we have ordered some stickers as of yet we are not ready to order big amounts custom printed. This is how we ended up with the Tiny Box guys as they were the only ones offering low quantities and were local. The order arrived very quickly in two days and we dressed up the first few of them with our stickers for the test.
The packaging seems to be good enough quality, and we tend to like it. However, I’m not completely happy, or better not sure about their overall look. As we are targeting Ten Senses to become a premium brand, my gut feeling is that we’ll have to come up with something different, something that really stands out. Anyways, for now, these paper packages will be good to go out and get some feedback for the Ten Senses mulling bags. It’s desirable before we put in a large order and lock us in with the design for thousands of packages to go. Exciting times are ahead, I really hope these packaging will work as they are affordable and would really make our job easier.
I will go with my partner tomorrow to complete a test photography session at creative agency Line Above. I’m very optimistic about it, only a few more hours and we’ll see.
