Holiday gifts, when received are often sorted into two piles: Keep and Toss. I have noticed that over the years the Keep pile is growing while the Toss pile is getting smaller—everyone seems to be getting smarter in their gifting choices—and Shed Labs not only made a good choice, they worked it beautifully.

Project Description

We're always looking for something fun to do and with the holidays upon us and a burning hatred for shiny glittery cellophane wrapping paper we decided to cook up our own gift giving kit. What better way to say you care for your friends, family or drunken neighbor than to wrap their gift in a premium package? Am I right? Anyway, the set consists of your three premium wrapping sheets, four christmas cards and six gift tags all hand-made, hand-crafted and designed by the dudes at Shed Labs. The three assorted rolls of of 2- color silkscreened premium wrapping paper using 19x 25 Speckltone Kraft, Poptone Wild Cherry and Jellybean green 70lb Text . The Greeting cards are printed using Sweet Tooth 100 lb Cover. The greeting cards are Wild Cherry and Jellybean A-6's. Designed and printed by Shed Labs, all of these things and more can be purchased shop.shedlabs.com.

Production Lesson(s)

During the process, just like any project we learned that we didn't know nearly as much as we thought we did. Printing on text weight paper turns out to be a breeze, but getting the flimsy sheet to cooperate while you attempt to slide it in to a 2 inch slot for drying whilst covered in fresh ink is no easy task for mere mortals. With a little Christmas cheer and a few pints of Santa's favorite lager we persisted. We could have also used some elves on our team to string up the gift tags. Hand-work is cool for a season, but once you've done a few hundred that crazy frost giant Mr. Carpal Tunnel starts to rear his ugly head.”
