Tiny soaps are so cute. I love checking out how other companies are packaging soap samples. My friends have some creative ways to show them off.
My friend Diane at Peace Soap is a true artist. In a former life, she was a floral designer. Her soap samples look rustic tied up with colorful raffia. And the cardboard gives it a more finished look.
Gilded Olive Apothecary
I’ve never actually met Valerie of Gilded Olive Apothecary, but I can’t wait to. A mutual friend connected us. Valerie presents her samples similar to the way I do mine, in a glassine envelope with a sticker to keep the bag closed. Simple and elegant.
Wisdom Body and Soul
Cassie of Wisdom Body and Soul uses small owl molds for her packaging soap samples. Because an owl is wise. Cassie’s last name is Wisdom, I love how she uses her name in her company. Such a great play on words.
Prairie Sage Soap
I met Tricia in an online class we both took some years ago. Her company is called Prairie Sage Soap. Tricia also uses glassine envelopes like Valerie and I do, but she goes an extra mile and stamps them with her logo too.
Peony Rose Apothecary
Don’t you love the burlap that Jo Anne of Peony Rose Apothecary uses? She attaches her info on a beautifully printed card tied on to the soap. Jo Ann sells her products at Remedies Herb Shop in Brooklyn. P.S. Jo Anne’s natural deodorant is my personal favorite. It’s the best I’ve found.
I’m always interested in creative ways to wrap soaps. I’ve seen some people attach soap samples to brochures, post cards and business cards. Have you seen any unique ways soap samples have been packaged?
Yours in Gratitude,
