Sponsored Post: Simple, Beautiful, Natural Packaging Solutions from Kraft & Jute

At Design Aglow, we're often approached by brands asking for a feature or to be introduced to our community. We've decided to begin sharing select companies with our readers, in the hope that you'll find their products as useful as we do. While we receive compensation for these posts, we vow never to promote a product just to make a quick buck, but instead align ourselves with companies that share our values of integrity and innovation. 

 

Kraft paper. Cardboard. Burlap. On the face of it, these materials sound hard-working and industrial, but not necessarily...pretty. Which is why Kraft & Jute's collections of packaging solutions, created from these exact materials, register as particularly, unexpectedly lovely: their CD sleeves, corrugated boxes, album covers, print sleeves, and USB packaging elevate ordinary elements into small artisan treasures, objects unto themselves rather than just “wrapping” to discard. Kraft & Jute's stitchwork and attention to detail create products that are worthy of your presentation, and will subtly reinforce your brand presence to your clients. 

 

Making materials traditionally viewed as “crafty” to appear sleek and modern is no small feat; Kraft & Jute's careful designs complement even the most contemporary of studio images. As an example, we paired our Modern Portrait Welcome Packet: Minimalist Edition, with its precise typography and wide open spaces, with Kraft and Jute's natural packaging. The results, we think, are nothing less than stunning: the eco-friendly packaging softens the edges of the Welcome Packet, making it friendly and accessible for a family portrait audience. Replicate this kraft packaging look with the following products: the Presentation Packet, the 11x14” Kraft Print Sleeve, the Corrugated Keepsake Box, and the Burlap USB/Wallet Pouch (check out all its adorable lining options!). We kept our packaging unadorned, but customizing your own products is always a possibility with their online design options. 

 

More about Kraft & Jute: Kraft & Jute creates packaging for photographers, wedding stationery for brides- and grooms-to-be, creative paper and burlap solutions for businesses, and other product lines due to launch in 2013.

This past March, my family and I took a road trip from Marietta, Georgia to Charleston, South Carolina. The trip fell during the first few days of spring, and we all dreamed of warmer weather and a nice change of scenery! Our trip started on a Friday and ended the following Monday, but despite it’s brevity, it was an amazing experience!
