Something New in Gift Wrap!

I developed the concept for my paper ribbon because I'd always loved the look of a label and ribbon combination in packaging. However labels don't stick well on fabric ribbon and I could never find strips of long narrow decorative paper (cutting long strips accurately by hand was nearly impossible). 

After thoroughly searching the internet I realized no one offered such a thing (this was before washi tape). The closest thing at the time was transparent decorative packing tape. But I was going for a simple yet charming packaging and gift wrap concept that I felt sticky packing tape just wouldn't provide. Even with washi tape now available, I still think paper ribbon is much better for wrapping gifts because it's not sticky and it is opaque (the same texture as scrapbook paper).

After attending a Country Living Women Entrepreneur's workshop in Chicago, I decided to plow forward making my idea of "paper ribbon" a reality. I found a printer in the USA who would work with me to make my concept a reality. 

I designed the patterns and decided on colors and then it was off to print.

Almost immediately after my paper ribbons came off the press, I realized I needed to make gift labels to go with them. Designing labels is one of my favorite parts of the job because there are so many possibilities and you can go from idea to finished product in the same day. 

Ultimately, I had so many requests for wrapping paper that I decided to design that too!

Now, Paperjacks offers the "complete package" for gift wrapping with wrapping paper, paper ribbon and labels that all coordinate!

Thanks for stopping by PaperJacks.
My premiere product is Paper Ribbon. If you love creating with paper or cute and clever packaging, I think you'll love working with paper ribbon.
Paper Ribbon is one of those things I wanted but couldn't find in stores or online so I designed it and had it made myself. It is fun to work with and has multiple uses. Best of all, it makes great packaging quick and easy. Just add a tag, small card or label. It even looks good with a business card or name tag label. I also offer wrapping paper and labels in colors that coordinate with the paper ribbons.
