Prime Line’s Favorite 2019 Projects
As we make our way towards the end of the decade, we have come together to reflect on this past year to create a list of our top 10 favorite 2019 projects. We are proud to continue to work with our customers to create modern and innovative packaging for their needs. Below are our favorite 2019 projects:
OUR FAVORITE 2019 PROJECTS: Jet Black audio box + mailer
First on the list of our favorite 2019 projects is Jet Black's audio box and bubble mailer. Jet Black is a lifestyle brand with an assortment of high-quality packaging. This year, the brand did something completely different in creating a video box as a welcome to their newest customers. The construction of the box itself is from rigid materials with foam inserts and a unique video display. The video inside features a message from their CEO. Certainly, designing a video box like this creates a personal connection with the customer and therefore, builds a relationship with their product needs.
Along with the video box to welcome new customers, we continue to work with the brand to create bubble mailers as the newest addition to their e-commerce packaging collection. Bubble mailers are a great addition to any packaging collection and can safely ship fragile items with extra interior padding. For Jet Black, we have further customized their mailers with black matte varnish and a repeated “J” logo pattern; mimicking their shopping bags. With the combination of matte varnish, spot uv, and custom printing, we were able to tie the look of the brand together.
FREE PEOPLE MALIBU + PARK CITY: CANVAS TOTES
Free People is known for their soft muslin tote bags with boho inspired repeat-patterns. This time, for their Malibu and Park City stores, the brand took a different approach to their promotional packaging. Instead of using soft muslin to create their bags, the brand chose a thicker cotton canvas material to custom print their logos and graphics. The bag designs reflect each store’s location, making it a unique promotional piece to add into any collection. The bags themselves are reusable and perfect to use as beach bags, gym bags, or a simple everyday tote bag.
APPARIS: GARMENT BAGS
The holographic trend has been especially popular in recent years and seems to continue to rise in trend for 2020, which is also featured on Apparis' new garment bag. The bag’s biggest feature is the completely holographic material. The garment bag itself also features black accent handles on both ends for easy carry. A hanger hole at the top makes for simple hanging on any hook or door.
Finally, the Apparis logo is boldly printed on the back, matching the handles and simple zipper front. With many different types of hologram ranging from deep yellows and bold purples to lighter pastel blues and pinks; there is a unique hologram for any brand’s packaging.
WANTABLE: SOFT MICROFIBER POUCH
Designer pouches make a great alternative to add on to typical packaging elements like shopping bags or gift boxes. Creating unique designer pouches like Wantable are visually appealing with a luxurious feel. The pouch features super soft microfiber suede material along with a snap closure to secure the contents inside. The front of the pouch is simply printed with the company’s logo, with the art and slogan continuing to the backside for a unique look.
MIGNONNE GAVIGAN: JEWELRY BOXES + EARRING CARDS
Unique packaging speaks volumes about a brand. The Mignonne Gavigan packaging collection consists of two earring boxes, one necklace box as well as an earring card. Each piece is made using premium quality paperboard with a kraft paper texture. The earring cards are also made with the same high-quality paper with a soft touch lamination. The smooth velvet flocking interior presents the item inside in an elegant way while keeping it secure.
The soft blush shade of the Mignonne Gavigan jewelry boxes and earring card set a classy and chic backdrop for their eclectic collection of accessories. Soft blush shades are popular hues to add to any packaging piece. They give off a fashionable vibe while still catching the eye of the customer. Adding the finishing touches like rose gold foil stamping give the collection a stylish monochromatic look. Above all, the quality and nature of their packaging collection creates an inviting brand identity which keeps their customer base growing. We love to create such unique packaging for our customers.
DARIEN SPORTS: PP NON WOVEN SHOPPING BAGS
In 2020, the New York bag ban will go into full effect. As a result, many companies like Darien Sports, who is based in New York have found an eco-friendlier alternative. This year, the company has fully converted their paper shopping bags into reusable pp-non woven shopping bags for all of their stores. When converting the bags, the company kept the same construction, artwork and handles for a smooth eco-friendly transition.
PRIME LINE PACKAGING: MAILERS + E-COMMERCE BOXES
Paper mailers and e-commerce shipping boxes are practical and useful packaging items for online businesses and stores alike. Many companies use custom made paper mailer and shipping boxes to mail out any type of product to their customers. This year, we are excited to work together as a team to rebrand our mailers and boxes. Using our brand's colors of black and lime green, we were able to design two items with a sleek and modern feel; using black matte with a black spot UV on top, as well as making sure the lime green accent pops and stand out. 2019 was our first year creating our own e-commerce mailer and box that is completely branded to our company. We are so excited with the outcome that we also used these corrugated boxes as our holiday gift this year!
E-commerce items are such a great investment for your company; no matter if you have a storefront or are an e-commerce business. Not only do these mailers advertise your brand, but it also shows that your brand pays attention to details. Customizable corrugated boxes and paper mailers add value to the products inside.
ALTAR’D STATE: BLACK FRIDAY TOTE BAG
This year, we worked with Altar’d State to create a unique tote bag for Black Friday. It’s proof that holiday packaging doesn’t always have to be specific to the season. From their neutral tones with pops of light blue to the delicate brand exclusive butterfly designs on the side gussets and handles, this tote bag is perfect to use year-round. We love this bag for the unique materials and how it incorporates the coming year’s fashion trends with patchwork-like and tapestry-esque patterns. The unique material has a soft texture and adds a hint of shimmer to the design. Definitely an unusual fabric we haven’t seen much of in the marketplace yet.
JAIS: PAPER SHOPPING BAGS
When choosing the perfect colors and materials for their shopping bags, Jais chose a rich orange and gold color combination with a subtle texture on the paper. Therefore, the warm tones complement each other well with matching shimmery gold handles to match the bold foil stamped logo.
CLAD + CLOTH: PAPER SHOPPING BAGS
When designing their paper shopping bags, the brand Clad and Cloth went for a simple approach of bold florals. The waterpaper like embossing compliments the florals on the artwork and adds subtle texture. Finally, adding delicate florals are always a classic when creating a paper shopping bag collection your customers will love and use again.
In short, we had so much fun working on our favorite 2019 projects throughout the year and can’t wait to see what 2020 has in store for us!
