zazzle and the story of the product tags

When we included apparel in the Thimblecap line, the need for new product tags arose. The ones we use on purses are on the small side; they looked a bit off hanging from the shirts and printed tote bags.

Thank goodness for Zazzle. Zazzle has products that are perfect for handmade sellers looking to improve their approach to packaging. Their sticker labels come in different sizes. They offer post-its, too, for thoughtful sellers who like to write notes to their lovey customers. I was quite taken with their postage stamps but I don’t really have use for them.

The tags I had made are actually business cards. The size, thickness, and the fact that they can be printed on both sides make the cards perfect for use as hang tags too.

The front contains my shop name and relevant websites. The back contains my thimble logo and a blank space for writing the price. The background is this fun pattern I made using my stamps.

Punched a tiny hole by the upper short side, tied with string, and attached to my products using safety pin.

Beautiful!

this was wednesday

  • Woke up at 8:30AM after only 6 hours of sleep. Five if you deduct the hour I woke after a horrible dream and had to be talked back to sleep by the boyfriend.
  • Left the house at 9AM to get a haircut.
  • Came home at 9:45AM to cook and have breakfast.
  • Got ready and waited.
  • Received SMS that driver is ready for us at around 11:20AM.
  • Arrived at one of the local TV studios at around 12:30PM.
  • And at around 1:30PM, I made a fool of myself. Proof:

  •  Driven home at around 3:30PM and had very late lunch.
  • Switched AC on upon arriving home and passed out.

“Acting” is hard work, man.  I don’t have the right amount of gaiety for TV, I think.

The shirt I wore for the feature was our DIY or DIE design. We have posted it up on the SHOP, together with our new items.

The TV feature was for a couple of DIY projects, by the way. It was shown yesterday. I didn’t catch it because I don’t have the energy to process my lack of gaiety in front of the camera. Ha.

DIY or DIE

They’re here! 

Okay, HERE is a little explanation for the excited tone. To say that I am thrilled about these new additions to the shop is an understatement. This time, we are going beyond handmade. We are taking another step to carry the flag of handmade.

Thimblecap celebrates the makers, builders, and washi tape hoarders. We salute those who make their own jewelry, sew their own clothes, make their own shelves, and bind the books to put on said shelves. We raise our flags to those who reuse, recycle, and refashion.

Here’s to crafters of all kinds — people whose days are besieged with pin pricks, paper cuts, perpetually paint-smudged hands, and unfinished stories.

The shoulder bags will be sewn by me. On top of these shirts and bags, prints will be made available, too. Imagine an art print of this design hanging in your craft room. Nice, right?

We shall be launching these print Thimblecap merchandise this weekend, May 31 to June 1 at the HYPERCEBU fair. Here are more info about the event:
