TapeSwell - The Easy Package Design Solution for Small Business Owners

Packaging solutions can be very costly for small-business owners. They involve ordering large quantities that go out of style long before they are depleted. Using decorative packing tape solves two problems at once
  • Firstly, since you have to use carton sealing tape when shipping to clients, why not use decorative shipping tape, and make your clients feel special. 
  • Secondly, there is no need for double wrapping and one box can be reused multiple times because the pretty patterns are great at covering up old labels and other box imperfections. 
Here's how some very smart businesses are making a great impression with their clients in a cost-effective and low-impact way: just launched a brilliant new line of "fashion-forward tshirts using eco-friendly fabrics with a soft vintage feel and flawless fit." The line was inspired by the documentary “Go Further” with Woody Harrelson and Laura Louie. Their mission is to inspire people to leave the world a better place. Their customers can choose a packaging tape pattern in which they would like to get their package shipped with. 

Marsha Mifsud, founder and editor of one of our favorite photography blogs The Savvy Photographer and the owner of Sweet Bliss Studios, uses TapeSwell to wrap holiday cards and other prints for her clients. 
"I desperately wanted a fun way to dress up my boxes to mail them...then I discovered TapeSwell," Marsha blogs. See her other photography packaging ideas.
Another great photographer, Jess McDaniel of, posted a Twitpic of her packaging of photo prints. "Ooh, @TapeSwell - my packaging is finally complete, after 7 years of not-so-funky packaging. Gorge!" she tweets.

I'm sure you all remember the brilliant Damask Wedding that event planner Keren from Free Pretty Things For You styled not long ago.
