Fantoosherie Goes Screen Printing

Hello Fancy People! I've been dying to make some funky packaging for all the new Fantoosherie goodies and being a stationary obsessive it took me quite a while to make a definite decision! I wanted everything to reflect the fact that our jewellery is re-cycled and re-worked so I found a fantastic local supplier of 100% recycled boxes and thought I'd screen print all my labels and business cards on re-claimed tweed and denim.

All I had to do was convince the boys at Glasgow Badges to let me come up and screen print my fabric. They screen print t-shirts and merchandise for bands and clubs so my demands weren't what they were used to but they got well stuck in! They suggested I use a hot pink ink with a puff gel in it so the text is slightly raised off the fabric for maximum tactile appeal!

Ooo I love it, thanks boys you are talented! The new packaging will be available with Fantoosherie purchases from our etsy shop and all upcoming crafty events which I will be posting soon.

Until then stay fancy xxx
