So many people comment on how much they like my product labels. I believe you should do what you do best, and hire someone to do the rest. Designing isn’t one of my strong points. I was happy to pass that on to Diane and Maria of Digho, because designing is definitely one of theirs. When I first started making soaps, Digho designed my logo and my labels. When I added sugar scrubs to the Alegna Soap® line, I took a trip to visit them.
I love the way the vellum strips look on my soaps and wanted something that would match that. Something similar, in the same family. The problem with vellum is it will get ruined in the shower. Diane is explaining my options for a waterproof label.
Labeling product can be tricky, especially when working with sticky material. We need to decide how long the new label should be. I assumed it would wrap around the entire jar.
Maria thinks if we make them a little shorter I will have an easier time attaching them to the jar. I have to say it’s a good thing we did. Having to match up ends when labeling can be tricky.
Here is my Lavender Lemongrass sugar scrub, all pretty and dressed up in the label. It has the look of the vellum, yet, resists water. Since the label is clear, you can’t tell it doesn’t go all the way around the jar unless you look for it. I’m more than happy with the result.
These two women are each incredibly talented in their own right. Put them together and what a dynamo team! I know their design work have taken the look of my soaps and products up a notch. Don’t you think so too?
Yours in Gratitude,
