I just saw these amazing labels over on The Ministry of Type. I’m not a drinker, but I would buy Marisco just for the calligraphy on the labels. Each name in The King Series is preceded by the words “The Kings” and by it’s neatly crafted name of Bastard, Thorn, Wrath, Favour, and Sticky End. A great story to go with wine, intriguing and smart.
I am completely and utterly inspired by the work of Keegan Meegan. It’s been a short five months since I last visited the site, but man-oh-man is it chock-full of goodness! From hand-lettered packaging for handmade tattoo guns, to Save the Dates featuring an anchor design, to an amazingly beautiful letterpress birth announcement. What a talent, seriously.

Over at A Field Journal, author Livy created a very victorian packaging suite for her loved one to open on his birthday. How sweet, right?! But it’s all in the details as they say. Just look at how it’s all put together including the tag. Love it!
I found this lovely while looking at a WordPress gallery. The Brooklyn Slate Company is the work of two Brooklynites who are obssessed with food which then turned into their slate product company. They produce and package their slate products by hand in their studio, located in (you guessed it) Brooklyn. Isn’t it amazing how simple and attractive packaging can be?
“Envelopes and other materials are printed by hand, and burlap bags are hand sewn too. Every single piece of packaging that comes with our products can be repurposed for other uses.”
I wasn’t sure how to title this post exactly but this is one amazing invitation. Created by Jordan Gray Creative for the musician Denison Witmer and his wife, who loves to knit. The all encompassed self-mailing invitation has two fold-outs for directions and the rsvp. Nicely done. View the high-res photos on Flickr.
