We have new packaging for our bar soap!
We began selling soap with a simple cigar band label printed at home on white cardstock. We cut these bands ourselves and attached them to the soap with a white sticker. The sticker had a hand drawing (by Caroline) of Simon and Caroline’s face and the words We make soap together. These labels served us well and we both have a fondness for its simple message.
But this year we wanted to freshen our look and packaging. We worked with a graphic designer to find a family of eye-catching colours and a design that highlights the unique swirl that Simon creates in our bar soap.
We’ve asked our printer to add score lines. These lines, similar to what you would find in a greeting card, create a clean and crisp fold. Using a guide like a ruler, Simon is able to fold the labels consistently.
We’ve included our business story on the inner wrap so people who a little more about who made the soap and why we make soap together.
The process took a lot of time and work, but it was worth it!
