When considering the decision of branding, one of the things I had clear was that I wanted a brand that was memorable, simple and clean (In both its image and in its impact on the environment).
I researched eco labelling, packaging, pricing and sustainability. As the logo developed, I realised that I wanted to go back to basics.
I wanted to avoid glue, stickers and products that are not necessarily associated as pollutants, but that in the long term they would have a negative environmental impact.
So I though about how things were done back when I was a kid and I saw the lovely branding of Sarah at https://pipandliloriginal.bigcartel.com/ (Check her out, she does the most amazing reusable wipes and she is always helping out good causes and other creators), and I knew I had to go stamping.
I wanted the wood I work with to be branded with my logo and I wanted to control the production myself.
Normally with any given printed product the more you order the cheaper it gets but with this hand stamping method, yes… I would have to invest a bit more at the beginning but that would be it. I would then be the owner of my future branding.
I started with my wood branding and for that I connected with Simon from https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/SITOENGINEERING.
He can tell you the story on how I ordered the stamp handle without ordering the actual stamp! Inexperienced branding queen I am!
Look at the pictures of my beautiful, eye-catching icon on my wood.
And then I wanted normal ink stamps for my packaging and Eco merchandising and here is a discovery everyone: www.getstamped.co.uk it as all about them. They are greener as greener can be! They plant a tree with every custom stamp they make and so far I have helped them plant 2 trees. All their packaging is plastic free and their stamps are 100% vegan friendly.
They are my dream come true https://getstamped.co.uk/environmental-impact/
And this is what the result is of my Eco branding research and work.
I am so proud of working with these beautiful creators.
So, this is mainly a shout out to all of you! There are people out there that are super Eco friendly and who can make your branding super beautiful too.
