It’s the season of love, and there is nothing that we love more than our customers. For that reason, our valentine to all of you is our biggest sale of the year – 10% OFF all bags and boxes. You can sign up to get the Valentine’s promo delivered to your inbox here.
While red, white and pink may be the common colors for the season, we wanted to make sure you all knew that 2017 is the year of green according to the Pantone Color Institute. The Pantone color of the year for 2017 is Greenery (Pantone 15-0343), and is described as “a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade.” Here is a sample of it:
Executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, Leatrice Eiseman, says the color stands for more than just green.
“Greenery bursts forth in 2017 to provide us with the reassurance we yearn for amid a tumultuous social and political environment. Satisfying our growing desire to rejuvenate and revitalize, Greenery symbolizes the reconnection we seek with nature, one another and a larger purpose.”
So as you think about your marketing messages, packaging and products this year, you might consider using this fresh shade of green.
Of course, with clear packaging you can showcase anything, so go out there and find some matching colors to put inside.
Though we haven’t released anything with the exact shade of Pantone’s Greenery, we do have a few green accessories you can use to embellish your clear packaging (and good for the upcoming March holiday):
- Kiwi Pre-tied Bow
- Emerald Pre-tied Bow
- Green Metallic Plastic Twist Tie
- White/Green Stripe Twist Tie
- Green Vinyl Stretch Loop
- Metallic Green Stretch Loop
As a sneak peek, we are working on bringing in a green rice paper pouch that is close to the Greenery color, though not an exact match.
Remember, we can do any color of packaging through our custom printing process.
