Since July 2011 when Little Creations was conceptualized from the comfort of my study nook, I have pondered about how it will be packaged when sent out to clients. Little Creations started with sandals where I turned matchboxes into shoeboxes. Gradually, my sewing was challenged by requests for gowns and dresses and I had a new dilemma, how to package clothes.
At first I sent out clothes like this…
I find it very bare so I thought of putting a paper background to give more interest to the dress. I scoured the aisles of bookstores and paper stores for the right image for the background. I envision something light and bright, with visual interests on the bottom of the page, a free space on top for me to put a logo/brandname, and the right size for a Sylvanian.
Lo and behold! I found this cute kiosk store inside Alabang Town Center near the activity area on the second floor beside Figaro. The store is Invitation House. They sell a myriad of colorful paper products like notepads, tags, invitations, stationery, cards, notebooks and other little knick knacks for writing. Initially, it looks like another typical cutie store selling cutie stuff. But upon looking at the prints carefully, you will see that the designs are very well thought out. There’s balance and homegenity of the designs. The images are original and you won’t see them at websites or picture galleries.
So I chose some of their notepads and had a sticker label personally made from another store. Here’s the result of this idea.
My favorite design is this yellow background with fuschia pink border on top and with grass, flowers and bugs on the bottom. It looks happy and the cuteness factor is not tacky.
And to make it more personalized and professional looking, I requested from Invitation House to print my label on the top. The order was a minimum of 3 pads and took a week. The result is fantastic!
Lovely! I love how the border around my label is the same color as the green of the grass. How it softens the look of the dark head of hair of the hedgehog icon. The quality of the print is stunning. The colors just pops out. I’m pretty sure any clothes will look gorgeous on this! Here’s Madame C trying it out.
For your paper, stationery or writing needs, check out Invitation House. They have friendly staff at ATC. Weng and Jess who worked with my graphics were prompt and professional. And I like that we all handled the transaction via emails alone. Here’s a shot of their contacts. The envelope behind is their packaging whener you buy from their store. Simply stunning!
