Personalized Name Labels from Minted

The kids are heading back to school, and I know that you’re set for super cool locker decorations, but have you picked up labels for all of those supplies that could use a little personalization, like lunch boxes and bags, notebooks and folders, pencil and art cases, water bottles, and toys?

If you’re looking for some seriously cute labels, then you’ve gotta check out this new collection of personalized name labels from Minted, which includes designs that feature everything from beautiful ballerinas to bouncing basketballs, with a cute kitty cat here and there, too!

Trendspotting : Holographic Foil

I think it’s safe to say that 2015 has been a great year for copper foil, and gold foil is still going very strong, but what’s this? I sense a new contender in the foil stamped stationery and paper goods space, and its name starts with “holo” and ends with “graphic”. There’s lots to love about holographic foil. It has a metallic rainbow finish. Its colors change as you move it. Um, yeah. It’s magic.

Here’s a little holographic eye candy to whet your appetite, and I hope that we’ll be seeing many more craveable, holographic paper goodies this holiday season and into 2016.
