Lead Image

Due to the positive reception and feedback of the wrapping paper we designed as part of the identity of the 2016 Brand New Conference in Nashville, we took the plunge in producing 1,500 sets of the six designs to help as many gifts as possible look their best this holiday season… or any other season or reason to celebrate. One of the things we like about them is that the illustrations are opportune for any season and they have a graphic festiveness that’s cheerful for any occasion. The wrapping paper is printed CMYK with a spot dull varnish on the black and spot gloss varnish on all the color so it has a nice, subtle dimension to it. Each set of 6 is $18 and ships in a tube to avoid creases.

Project Description

A set of wrapping paper for all seasons, for any occasion, that avoids typical motifs. Wrap gifts for the holidays without snowflakes, for birthdays without balloons, or for Valentine’s Day without hearts.

Originally designed for the 2016 Brand New Conference in Nashville, TN, and inspired by country singers’ rhinestone-clad suits.

Production Lesson(s)

Not so much a production lesson but a handling one: Sorting, moving, and stacking piles of coated 70-pound paper is way more difficult than we ever considered. It's slippery, fragile, and when you are trying to carry 100 sheets or more at a time, they are unbelievably heavy. Lesson being: have a plan in place for how you might handle 9,000 sheets of paper in your office.”
