Custom Printing: Hang Tags for Bombshell Bands

We recently just finished a collaboration with Suzanne Martinelli, an entrepreneur owner of Bombshell Bands a custom product within Suzanne's Bombshell Beauty products line. The product Bombshell Bands is unique headband designed female athletes and gym goers. When Suzanne reached out to us, she already had a graphic symbol of a girl with ponytail as a brand image but asked us to further enhance her graphic trademark into a more recognizable logo for her product. After some digital edits to the art we successfully provided a better graphic symbol that connected Suzanne's original logo to her Bombshell Bands brand.

Afterwards we letterpress printed the new graphic symbol on kraft stock paper with a custom die cut hole at the top of each print. These prints have now become tactile product hang tags for Suzanne's products. 

Provided through the following photos are samples of the hang tags we created and packaged for Suzanne.

AIGA Philly: Pop-Up Shop 2014

The end of 2014 brought a wonderful exposure and selling opportunity to the Paprika Letterpress & Design studio. Our studio was featured part of the AIGA Philadelphia chapter's holiday season Pop-Up Shop. The Pop-Up Shop was housed at AIGA Philly’s Old City gallery called SPACE. The event showcased a diverse collection of one-of-kind art and design related goods created by the AIGA Philadelphia chapter members. 

We had a great time meeting other AIGA members at the Pop-Up shop's kick-off party that was part Old City Philadelphia's December First Friday celebration. Last weekend marked the Pop-Up Shop's closing, but we look forward collaborating with AIGA Philly again in the near future. Many thanks to the AIGA Philadelphia chapter and Gaby Heit for letting us be part of such a wonderful event in such great company.
