When around a hundred hours a week are spent putting packages together for mailorder, it’s the little things that keep you going. One of those details are the small labels we’ve been putting on packages* for the past 8 years, which have gone through several dozen iterations. We just got back our latest batch, and our first series, that are by far the most elaborate and fantastic labels yet. We’re quite pleased with them and hope they deliver a small smile with each package—especially since we made 10,000 of them. As of this post they are already beginning to speed out through the shipping systems of the world to doorsteps everywhere.
*Not all packages get labels, sadly. All Priority Mail orders get them, but International orders don’t—hopefully smoothing out their trip through customs. For Media Mail, envelopes and our smallest box already have fancy printing on them, everything bigger gets a label.
