Few retail packaging items are as iconic as Tiffany’s Blue Box. A symbol of elegance, style and admiration, the robin’s egg blue has been making women around the world swoon for generations.

The trademarked Blue Box is as iconic as the Tiffany’s brand itself. In 1845, Charles Lewis Tiffany put out a catalog for his “stationery and fancy goods” store at 259 Broadway in New York City. The shop had been in business just eight years and had made a name for itself by selling fine silver formed in what was called the new American style— a clean, natural look that dared to move away from overly ornate European styles. Once Tiffany’s introduced its diamond engagement ring in 1886, the Blue Box became every bit as desired as the ring itself.

As time went on, the Blue Box became a steadfast figure in Americana, with Paramount Pictures releasing Breakfast at Tiffany’s in 1961, which starred a young Audrey Hepburn. In order to film the movie on location, Tiffany’s opened on a Sunday for the first time but had to bring in 40 armed guards in order to prevent any of the Blue Boxes from “disappearing.” This was perhaps the first time boxes on the movie set were more famous then the actress starring in the film.

Tiffany’s signature blue—officially dubbed as color No. 1837 on the Pantone Matching System chart, evokes “positive thoughts and reactions, and this, combined with the status that Tiffany has assigned to it, makes for perfect packaging,” according to Pantone Color Institute executive director Leatrice Eiseman. The box has even inspired actual pieces of jewelry that Tiffany’s has gone on to sell.

Lets take a look at the famed box and see what makes it so special:

The Box—Pantone makes the blue-coated paper packaging for Tiffany. While the brand’s flagship store sits on bustling Fifth Avenue, New York City, the boxes come from humble Carlstadt, New Jersey, making the box the second most famous thing out of Jersey after Bruce Springsteen.

The Color— The official color of Tiffany’s box is Pantone No. 1837, which is named for the year of the stores founding. Colloquially, it is known as forget-me-not blue or robin’s egg blue. This hue is the most protected color in branding.

The Accent—A white satin ribbon that’s fastened to the box at checkout is the go-to accompaniment to the signature box. During the holidays, a red ribbon is used instead.

The Brand—Tiffany & Co. boxes are embossed with the company name in the font of “Baskerville Old Face.” But in all actuality, the color says all you need to know about the box. Could change be in the works for Tiffany’s and it’s famous retail packaging? According to Vogue UK, Tiffany’s new creative director, Francesca Amfitheatrof, told the September issue that she’s not afraid to make her mark by tweaking the beloved packaging

“I might do limited editions, maybe in a pattern,” she said. “I do love a mixture of patterns.”

It’ll be interesting to see what the future has in store for the iconic Blue Box. It’s amazing how one box and one shade of blue has become such a symbol of elegance and sophistication, and probably will remain that way forever. It goes to show the value of well thought out and well branded packaging.

You can make your mark with packaging of your own from BagsBagsBags.com.

The True Value of Gift Cards

9/18/2014 9:05 AM

Sometimes misinterpreted as a gift given by someone with a lack of thoughtfulness, gift cards don’t get enough love. Gift cards are actually a fantastic option for both customers and retailers alike. When a customer’s search for the “perfect gift” comes up short and a gift card is the only way to go, it’s important to shift their mindset on gift cards from a quick and easy gift to the perfect gift to give.

Why are gift cards such a great option?

They Have Fantastic Up-Sell Potential

According to Retail Category Consultants, the average gift card redemption generates an average of 4.5 times the gift card’s original value. So when someone who has received a gift card comes in to cash it, it is a perfect opportunity to up-sell—the gift card brought them into the store, now it’s time to encourage them to spend some of their own money in addition to the gift card.

New Customer Acquisition

Gift cards are an easy gift giving option and can bring new customers into your store. You can also use gift cards as a promotional tool—give one gift card to an existing customer when they bring in a friend, and that friend will receive the same discount when they make their first purchase at your business. Promotions like this can leverage regular customers to bring new faces into your store.

How can you make your gift cards even more effective? Here are a few tips on how to personalize gift cards in a way that will make them truly thoughtful:

Make your gift cards seasonal by featuring holiday specific graphics

Customers are more likely to purchase a gift card that reflect a specific holiday or give off a seasonal vibe. For example, if a customer is searching for gift card to give during Christmas, it’s a good idea to offer gift cards with snowmen, snowflakes or jolly Ol’ Saint Nick emblazoned on it.

Wrap up your gift cards up in traditional gift wrap paper

Wrapping up a gift card gives it an air of legitimacy that a gift card box alone cannot produce. Color gift wraps attract the eye to the gift and also lend a shade of mystery to the entire process. What’s in the box? An awesome gift is, that’s what.

We offer gift wrap for any celebration, holiday or personality type. Celebrate with holiday prints like Christmas Chevron Reversible Gift Wrap or Gold Star Chanukah Gift Wrap, and birthday prints like Party Balloons Gift Wrap. Our stylish gift wrap patterns are perfect for both men (like Black Diamonds Kraft Gift Wrap) and women (Damselfly Gift Wrap). Gift wraps are available in 15", 18" and 24" widths. Please note that jeweler’s rolls are available in 3 roll increments only.

Let shoppers choose a gift card holder that fits the personality of the one receiving it

We offer countless options for gift card holders at BagsBagsBags.com. Whether it’s a pop-up box, pillow box or a simple card folder, we have a Gift Card Holder for everyone.

Our pop-up boxes, like this Candy Confetti / White Gloss Pop Up Gift Card Box, are 1 piece pop-up construction made from gloss finish recycled board with a white interior. Its interior holds a standard gift card and is printed with: “To,” “From,” and “Amount.”

Gift card folders, like this Cheery Dots Gift Card Folder & Silver Holder Insert, are made from 100% recycled board with a gloss finish. Each folder comes with a silver coordinating gift card holder insert creating a beautiful presentation of your store’s gift card. Like the pop-up boxes, card folder inserts are printed with: “To,” “From,” and “Amount.”

Gift card pillow boxes are another great option for gift card presentation, as well as small accessory and gift items. Pillow boxes are solid color tints on gloss finish board. These are available in 8 popular colors: Black, Blue, Gold, Hot Pink, Leaf, Red, Silver, White.

Pillow Boxes are available for Post Printing. They can be Hot Stamped with custom logos or designs. Post Printing is a manual, hand fed process for short run programs. The printing is done on products that have already been produced and converted such as bags or boxes. Due to the nature of this process, printing quality is limited compared to in-line printing. We can also work with you on customized gift card boxes and packaging options.

Vibrant colors of red, yellow and orange, crisp temperatures, pigskins and back-to-school—it’s that time of year again, fall is upon us. With the beach and summer placed in the rearview mirror, it’s time to set the falling leaves and shoppers in motion with autumn-inspired retail packaging.

Fall elicits images of natural looking items and decorations— things like leaves, pine cones, berries, tree branches, flowers, wicker baskets, feathers, logs, corn cobs, and gourds. Packaging carrying these images will instantly evoke the autumnal spirit in any shopper’s heart.

Our Autumn Leaves Gift Wrap and Kraft Leaves & Berries Gift Wrap options can provide the perfect fall imagery to your retail packaging. Both are available in 15", 18" and 24" widths. Please note that Jewelers rolls are available in 3 roll increments only.

You don’t even necessarily need an image or pattern to arouse that fall feeling— all you really need is color. Retailers know that there are particular colors that exemplify the fall season. All of those classic reds, yellows and oranges are staples of the season. You can take your fall colors further by using these hues in your products while using their accent colors throughout your business and storefront.

Our bold Day Lily/Goldenrod Reversible Gift Wrap can knock out two classic fall colors with one stone and is also available in in 15", 18" and 24" widths. For tissue papers that match the fall themes, check out our Yellow Solid Tissue or Red Gingham Printed Tissue.

If you like a natural autumn look and want to be eco-friendly as well, check out our selection of kraft products made from 100% recycled fibers. Our kraft bags are available for Post Printing as well. Post Printing is a manual, hand fed process for short run programs with printing done on products that have already been produced and converted. Refer to our Post Printing page for more information and upcharges.

Kraft packaging options include Recycled Natural Paper Shopping bags with serrated edges and kraft paper twist handles, or Natural Kraft Pinstripe Tuck-It One-Piece Folding Gift Boxes. These gift boxes are made from recyclable kraft board with kraft interior and may be folded flat for easy storage. Boxes take only seconds to assemble.

The fall means time for new clothes. As the weather gets colder and the kids start getting back to school, everyone’s going to need new threads. Our Natural Kraft Pinstripe Two-Piece Pop-Up Apparel Boxes are made from recyclable kraft board with kraft interior and our Tinted Kraft Black Pinstripe Two-Piece Pop-Up Apparel Boxes are made with heavy recycled kraft board with kraft interior. Along with fall colored Patterns on Recycled White Kraft Shopping Bags, these retail packaging options are all great for apparel sales and are availablle Post Printed.

Never forget that autumn is a full sensory experience. That should be something your business should emulate this upcoming season. Entice customers’ sense of smell with cinnamon, pumpkin and apple pie fragrances or candles in your store. Satisfy their taste buds by serving or selling fall appetizers and desserts with flavors of apple, orange, pumpkin and cinnamon. Play with the colors by experimenting with kraft wrapping paper or create contrast with brightly colored wrapping paper, or go with classic color schemes that are as timeless as the feelings the season arouses.

Enjoy the changing of the seasons and don’t forget that BagsBagsBags.com is your place for all customized retail packaging needs. Feel free to Contact Us for a quote today!

Window Boxes help liven up any residential block or commercial storefront. These beautiful little gardens bring positive attention to a property while being simple to maintain and enjoy. Most flowers are placed into planters that are small enough to change in five minutes and are striking enough to give your business a vibrant look and welcoming feel.

A cool look for the summer, window boxes dress up the front of a property while providing extra gardening space. Most window boxes follow a magic formula for success— the proven "thriller, filler, spiller" recipe puts a tall plant in the center, mounding plants on the sides and trailing plants flowing over the edges. Planting a thriller (something tall, such as a blooming geranium, Japanese iris), a filler (something to add fullness, such as colorful caladium, white snapdragon, violet African daisy, red common geranium) and a spiller (something to trail over the sides, such as purple petunias, pink and red ivy geraniums, dark red calibrachoa, purple Lanai verbena) will help vary the window box and make it interesting.

Have you ever wanted to build a window box of your own to add charm, color and curb appeal to your storefront? This simple woodworking project from HGTV is easy enough for anyone with the material and tools and can be completed in a day.

Much like how window boxes can spruce up a storefront or home, BagsBagsBags.com offers tissue paper by the ream and a staggering array of solid, printed, white, and kraft tissues and shred. These packaging additions come in dozens of colors and patterns, making it easy for you to add style and substance to your packages. We are also veteran packaging specialists who offer Ribbons, Bows, Gift Bows, Gift Ribbon, Pull Bows, Star Bows, Curling Ribbon and Satin Ribbon for any occasion or product.

Think of our Bows and Ribbons as the thrillers of a window box and our Tissue and Shred options as the fillers and spillers. Like the flowers adorning the window boxes in storefronts everywhere, these colorful tissue options are easy to coordinate with other packaging materials (Boxes, Shopping Bags and Gift Wraps) for a beautiful ensemble.

We also offer ready-made Coordinated Packaging Collections that match the perfect combination of bags, boxes, ribbon, bows and tissue. Our collections, like the Make a Splash, Kensington Plaid and Bold Scroll Collection demonstrate how the additional use of bows, tissue and ribbon (as well as other coordinated packaging) enhance bags, boxes and giftwrap paper.

Now you can have awesome retail packaging options to go along with those beautiful new window boxes. A little bit of love and care with your storefront and packaging can go a long way in creating an environment and product that customers feel comfortable with.
