Emerald Green: Not Just for St. Patrick’s Day
Happy March and happy St. Patrick’s Day from your friends at Prime Line! While we celebrate the month of green, there is a new jewel tone that’s trending for 2022: Emerald Green. Not only is emerald green a great shade for Spring, but it is also Etsy’s newly named color of the year for 2022.
Representing harmony and growth along with royalty and refinement, emerald green is the perfect vibrant hue. It is predicted to gain massive popularity this year. We are already seeing it pop up across runways, home interiors, and our favorite brands.
As a start, emerald green is the perfect hue to transition from Winter to Spring. Considering green is calming and reminiscent of nature, emerald greens, on the other hand, can offer a powerful grounding effect. It’s versatile enough to pair with metallic accents or neutral tones. This bold hue is a perfect continuation of an Earth tones color palette. When fully printed on a shopping bag, it can make a bold, luxurious statement.
Incorporate Emerald Green To Your Packaging
Using any variation of emerald green is an excellent choice when staying on trend. Many shades of emerald and pops of brighter greens are the perfect selections when creating green-inspired packaging. First. adding these hues onto any packaging item is a great way to give your packaging collection a seasonal refresh.
Next, apply emerald green and its trending shades onto any type of material. Whether you are using Earthy kraft papers or reusable materials. Think cotton, pp non-woven, or muslin. There is always a way emerald green can incorporate into your brand. How you pair emerald with other treatments and materials can have your packaging give off a different feel. However, if your brand has a bold identity, you can set emerald green logos or graphics against a white background. This will better highlight the popular hue’s intensity.
Finally, once you select your materials, special treatments can put the finishing touches on any packaging piece. Think foil hot stamping, spot uv, or other trendy embellishments. We will be sure to see this versatile hue pair well with multiple trending color palettes for 2022. Emerald green is the perfect transitional shade for all your packaging designs.
Going (Emerald) Green
When creating green packaging, it’s important to think beyond the color and more about how to make your packaging “greener”. The “greener” your packaging, the better the positive impact will be. With Earth Day only a month away, and with more bag bans going into effect, you can start thinking about how (emerald) green packaging can positively impact the environment. Green isn’t just a color – going green can also mean that your brand is eco-friendly.
Offering eco-friendly packaging items are an ideal way to make a statement. It’s good to let customers know how your company is environmentally conscious. For example, creating paper shopping bags from post-consumer waste materials is a great place to start. Using papers like these mean your bags are made from recyclable materials and is once again recyclable. Your bag’s handles can be made from paper which will then make your bags part of the single-stream recycling process. Meaning, every part of the bag can have a second life.
Along with eco-friendly paper bags, reusable fabric bags are popular in states where more bag bans are in effect. Materials like pp non-wove, pp woven, cotton canvas, and muslin are the perfect choices when creating the perfect reusable bag. Your bags have the option for reuse. Don’t forget to add emerald green to your eco-friendly packaging collection for a look that is completely on trend.
