New packaging!


Display comments as (Linear | Threaded)

I love It ! It's a wonderful finishing touch !
Excellent work !
Got one of these new packagings last week, looks very professional !

It was the Morse ring from the contest, I haven't even dared opening it yet, it is worth more to me still in its original packaging :-)

Btw, why not promote the combinatory manufacturing gallery some more ?

Can't seem to find links to it anywhere except a mention in the comments on that original announcement.
(And yes, I will do my best to promote it myself also :-))

I received my Key holder free print from the contest, and yes, this new packaging looks great ! After two days, I finally dared to open it ;-)

the new packaging is wonderful. I notice that the necklace shown on this page is a
Combinatory manufacturing piece with the neck piece attached via a split-ring. This is not an option according to the guidelines. I think it's a much better choice than making an attachment point with a 3.5mm hole....that's just too big for many necklaces. I hope you'll consider offering this instead, or also.

Good point.
As this is a test run I'll definitely note it down for consideration.

The point is that some time it can be hard to know where to attach the necklace.

I really like this packaging. It looks slick!!

Will there be a point in the future whereby shop owners can design their own graphics for your packaging on their products? That would be so eternally cool.

I would even be willing to pay a monthly fee for this service or pay a fee to have X number of these printed with my logo for your packaging inventory.

Hi Whystler,

Good point... nice feedback also on the live-cast just now.
We have been looking at this and yes this would be "Uber cool"

More people interested in co-branded packaging?

I would definitely like to see co-branded or custom packaging. The main reason that I avoided selling through the Shapeways store for a long time was the inability to include a nice package for my work.
That said, the new packaging is a great step in the right direction :-)

I received some of these new packaging last week, and first thing I though was : "Wow, new packaging ! Nice !"
And then, just in the next minute I had the same idea as Whystler : "It would be great if we could custom these packaging with our shop logo !"

A bit late, but as you know yes, very very very interested in custom designed packaging. Even a blank packaging (well, alright, with a 9 point 'powered by Shapeways' logo in the lower right corner :-) ) could be interesting.

I got mine (second image) the day I left for vacation. I loved it. Was definitely a welcomed surprise to have the ring and necklace added to my pendent.
