100% Recycled, Beautiful and Economical Packaging

Everything in this picture is either 100% recycled or made from 100% natural fibers. Who says eco-friendly has to be boring?

You can create a colorful packaging presentation as simply as adding bright colored tissue to inexpensive brown kraft paper shopping bags. Our 100% recycled shopping bags are still our most popular. I chose 100% recycled gift paper to coordinate with my Kraft bags and used 100% recycled tissue in matching colors to bring my look together.

There are several different recycled ribbons available, but I love the fact that the ones I chose were 100% recycled of all natural fibers as well as being colorful. This presentation is so colorful that your customers might not realize it is recycled. Isn’t it great that we can now be ecology conscious as well as trendy?

The beauty of kraft is that it works with any color and many themes. I chose my gift-wrap and then picked my tissue and ribbon colors to coordinate with my theme. A money-saving tip; the kraft paper I chose is printed on one side and kraft on the other so you have two looks for the price of one.

If you really want to save money, wrap your gifts in plain 100% Recycled Kraft Paper on a roll, tie on a pretty bow and you have a really inexpensive but pretty wrap. Suppose you don’t want to wrap at all. Use a brown kraft gift box with Eco-Friendly Ribbons layered and tied in a simple knot, add your store label and it’s good to go. Saving money is good business now and if you pass your savings on to your customers, you will have many happy repeat sales.

Don’t forget to add your labels to your packaging, and better yet, custom print those kraft bags. It will only add about 12 cents a bag to your cost. You have saved enough on the price of your packaging to pay for printing.
