With the world of retail looming over Riley G, we decided to look into hang tags and packaging for our straps. We looked at custom tags, custom labels, designer packaging and gorgeous letterpress products. The only problem, these shiny things cost big $$$$! I realized, this was going to add several dollars per strap to our cost basis. I found a generic shipping catalog on my desk and began sifting through their products and found the perfect solution: drawstring burlap bags for $.30 each and generic manila shipping tags for pennies. We have amazing, designer camera straps and I believe our customers will be happy to save a few dollars on their purchase and skip the high-gloss packaging. We are all about value here and we would rather invest those dollars back into the craftsmen of our community. That’s where Sean and his team at FWD Screen Printing came into play. He took the time to print our small batch of 200 bags and did an amazing job. I had called him Friday of last week and he had these babies finished in one day. When you purchase a Riley G camera strap, you are supporting small American businesses and people like Sean. Above, a few shots of our burlap bags, hang tags and our new friends at FWD Screen Printing.
