Release your Inner Child – Captivating candles evoke memories of home and family

July 11th, 2017

Inner Child Home Fragrances (www.innerchildhome.com), founded by mother-daughter pair Beth and Julia Schillaci, was started after Beth had smelled the scent of the eucalyptus trees from a grove while travelling in Maui. She began to reminisce about what other smells reminded her of places she has traveled, triggering happy memories, which she could share through a custom line of fragrant soy candles. Her goal is to inspire customers to take a break, have fun, unleash creativity and connect with their “inner child.” Even the company logo, based on the Hawaiian legend of Kauila, is a Hawaiian sea turtle “Honu” reflecting the playful nature of the brand.

Custom, Full Telescope Package Protects Glass Bottle and Light Sensitive Product, While Differentiating Brand from Competition

May 10th, 2016

mission-possibleBlack Note came to Custom Paper Tubes for a package solution that not only provides protection to a glass 30mL bottle and the product’s integrity from light, but also distinguishes the Black Note brand as a quality, premium line of e-liquids from an ever-growing sea of e-vapor start-up competitors. Black Note knew a custom designed, paper tube package was the key to standing out, as well as providing the protection needed for the product.

Black Note chose a unique take on the 3-piece telescope, also known as a full telescope, package. The long cap tube allows for a reveal of the product inside the package as it is removed from the base tube. A custom printed disc at the top of the curl-and-disc enclosure on the cap shows off the Black Note brand, while a custom printed sticker label is applied around the outside of the cap, over the matte black spiral outer wrap. The custom printed sticker is made and applied in-house by Black Note, with the option for variable data printing to differentiate and customize the labels for the variety of flavors and nicotine levels available. Black Note offers a range of nicotine levels that encourages smokers to move down through the scales of “notes” from a high nicotine content at a high “Soprano” note to no nicotine at the lowest “Bass” note.

Recyclable Shaker Top Containers Allow for Easy Application of All-Natural Dry Pet Shampoo

November 25th, 2013

Holcombe OrganicsHolcombe Organics created FurRefresh out of necessity in an animal rescue environment. The condition of which the animals were arriving was a growing concern, and most were too traumatized to bathe without risking personal harm. Also, a good, chemical-free dry shampoo was nearly impossible to find in retail stores. This lead Holcombe Organics to develop FurRefresh — a dry shampoo made with culinary ingredients that could be licked by the animals without harm. It also cleans, conditions and brightens fur, calms itchy skin and repels insects.

Holcombe Organics came to Custom Paper Tubes to produce cost-effective and eco-friendly shaker top containers that would allow for easy application of the all-natural, dry pet shampoo. Read the rest of this entry »
