Countdown to launching my new handmade handbags website....steady!

Time for another Handmade Monday.
So, here it is...the most important bit of my new website....my new logo. What do you think?
I also found this fab series of hessian icons to use for my Facebook, Twitter and Flickr links.


I always liked my rubber stamped luggage labels, so I've had the logo made into a new rubber stamp...

....and for that finishing touch I'm having some new cloth labels printed to sew into the seams of each item. But they haven't arrived yet!

I'm still trying to sort out my packaging. I'm thinking brown 'pizza' boxes (obviously without Domino's printed all over it and without the extra balck olives) and duck egg blue tissue paper for wrapping. Now just the dull stuff to go - T&C's, returns etc. - and we'll be ready to launch.

  2. Wow, great logo. Really presents your products.

    The stamp is a great idea. Saves handwriting the same thing over and over.. plus, far more professional.

    Good luck with the launch.

  10. Good luck with the launch of your website - it must be so exiting. The logo is lovely (I would even lose the bag picture from the first line and it would still look great). The hesian twitter birdie is a great idea.

  13. You can't go wrong with duck egg blue ;) Will be a nice mix with the natural brown of the cardboard. You have reminded me that I have a box full of little brown boxes downstairs that I need to print my logo's on! Good luck! Packaging can make all the difference.
