Kickin the shop up a notch...DIY style, of course

Let me just say, I've had tons of fun with my Etsy shop.
I never would've guessed this is where life would take me, but I am loving the ride.
I love picking fabrics, coming up with new creations, taking custom orders and working to improve my shop.

And I'm also enjoying figuring out marketing, graphics, branding, etc.

Today, on my day off, I checked off some "wants" I've had for awhile.
Fabric labels, and new packaging.

First, I made fabric labels.
I've wanted to do this for a LONG time.
I looked into having them made by another Etsy seller, but decided to go the DIY route for now to save some $$$.
And I love how they turned out!
They are simple, but add a professional touch.
Super easy.
Doesn't it make this cloth wipe look professional?

Then I worked on making wraps to package my items.
I just put my logo into a Google Doc in landscape, printed it and cut to size.
Easy peasy.

I'm so thrilled with how everything has turned out.

Any other Etsy sellers have any tips of marketing and branding?


  1. I think those look great! Even better that you could make them on your own, but I wouldn't have guessed it from the first look :) Very professional looking like you said!

  2. Thanks Laura! I'm pretty thrilled with how it turned out!


I love comments! Thanks for leaving me one! I read each and everyone one! xoxo Jenny Free
