New Products, New Labels! | October 2016
many will know I am developing a brand new range of products,
but what many don't realise is how difficult it can be to research packaging and labelling,
finding the best quality while getting value for money so that we don't
need to charge a fortune for a finished item. Jodie at Fast Labels contacted me about our labelling needs and after discussing our requirements she put together a quote which offered
a huge quantity of labels at a great price. The problem we
often have as a small business is that to get good
rates you need to purchase huge quantities which isn't great
for cashflow or storage. I
sent my designs, measurements and material requirements over; I
went with a gloss laminate finish to give the labels a
polished look and I stuck to simple black
print on a white background as I wanted to keep the design clean and crisp. Within
2 days of confirming the specs I received proofs and the labels arrived 3 working days later. They came on rolls which are easy
to store and have been printed perfectly, I'm really pleased with
them. They are also cost effective
which means our customers won't pay a premium price for our products
just to cover the cost of pretty labels!

Happy 1st Birthday to us! | January 2014
What a difference a year makes!
We began our journey in Jan 2013 with 8 scents and 5 product lines. The past year has been a whirlwind with the company growing beyond anything we could imagine! If you had told us that in a years time that we would produce an extra 12 scents, 3 product lines, receive 2 business awards, supply 10 stockists and help to fundraise for several local charities...we would have not have believed you!
Thanks to the support of our customers and stockists, this has become the reality and we continue to grow on a daily basis. This year we hope to recieve a small business grant to assist in the accumulation of tools and supplies which will help us develop new product ranges more quickly and efficiently - meaning more choice for you!
