Project Description

We designed packaging for gourmet ginger snap cookies made by Portland-based company, Bunches & Bunches Ltd. The package needed a high-end look suitable for gourmet stores, yet cost had to be considered. We went with a slide-tray construction printed in 3 colors with Soft-Touch matte coating and sculpted embossing for the logo and cookie name. The boxes were finished with 1-color letterpress-printed labels to seal the box and also add another layer of texture.

Production Lesson(s)

Color selection was the most challenging task. We had to dial down the production method of the box to utilize folding paperboard to help keep cost down. The challenge there was maintaining a premium aesthetic suitable for these gourmet cookies, which we achieved through the use of a special Soft-Touch coating (that has a silky rose-petal-like texture) and sculpted embossing. The letterpress-printed labels helped elevate the product's premium aesthetic, too. Little seals add the feel of luxury, kind of like the way they might for a cigar box or fine scotch.”
