Hey all...

I love packaging...some of the most successful retailers and brands have greatly helped themself get to that place with witty, beautiful, chic, edgy (the list could go on and on) packaging!

My question to all of you lovely Etsians is this...

where are you getting your labels/packaging printed and also who are your suppliers? I'd really like to start a little collection of really wonderfully packaging suppliers and printers as I am trying to revamp my packaging!

Lets talk about it!

Can you try to post the link again... it does not work :(

hmmm may threads about this and from what I gather:
People make their labels themselves... go to Staples/Office Depot/etc and buy the sticky labels, and just take the time to figure out the right look on your computer...

Otherwise:
People buy from other Etsy sellers. There are a ton who do "business packages" that could probably help?

And I've seen website links to places like scrapbooksupply.com that might have paper for you to buy...


hope this helps

OK, you're going to love this one -- not the cheapest, but definitely unique. They do sell wholesale, too.

OH, also forgot to say, they do offer a sample pack -- you can choose what you'd like to see and they send it!
