I debuted my Art Trays a week ago and it was an all out dash to have them available for Open Studios. Needless to say I wasn't able to spend as much time developing the packaging as I would have like so I had a few issues I needed to work out. The one thing I didn't like was that the symbolic meaning of the imagery was printed on a card that had to be including during checkout. So...I have put some time into redesigning the tags. My challenge was how could I get the information attached to the tray itself.
I took some muslin and stamped the image name with some vintage letter stamp that I have had for about fifteen year. Using a tag that I picked up at Staples, I added the symbolic definition and then tied them all together resulting in a great gifting presentation.
It was a little more time consuming that I had hoped, but if you know me, that's no surprise. I think it still needs a few tweaks here and there...but it's real close.
Since right now my studio is open by appointment only, I wanted to let everyone know that you will soon be able to purchase the trays at Art and Light Gallery.
