JoJo Co. is a local Fife based company, producing luxury handmade scented soy candles and diffusers. If you haven’t came across her amazing fragrances, you really are missing out!
Jo Mathewson came into our office in March 2017 when she was needing help with the design and print of labels for her candles. Jo just popped in to see if this is something we could do for a small start up business and we wasted no time in getting to work. I sat down with Jo and we discussed what her business was about and what she was needing in the way of design and print, now and in the future.
The first step for JoJo Co. was to create a look for her brand. It was clear from my initial chat with Jo that she was looking for something simple and elegant to compliment her high quality candles and diffusers. As Jos’ products are all handmade and her name is used for the company brand I looked at creating a logo using a handwritten font giving it a more personalised feel. I was pleased that Jo fell in love with it straight away and we could proceed with the design of the labels.
The labels are kept very simple and elegant just like the logo and using the cream background really compliments the gold lid of the candles and the Natural Kraft Manilla packaging. Jo takes great care in packaging up her products, wrapping them in tissue paper before being boxed and tied with sparkly twine, they really do make a lovely gift.
The JoJo Co. labels are all printed on a matt finished self adhesive stock, using our digital press and trimmed down to size. Using the digital press we are able to produce short print runs with a fast turnaround time, sometimes even the same day. Ideal for the personalised candles JoJo Co. have available. This great gift idea from JoJo Co. means you can order a candle in your choice of fragrance with your own message printed on the label.
Along with the labels for the candles and diffusers we also have designed and printed business cards for JoJo Co. These take on the same style as the labels but we chose to print them on Conqueror Oyster Wove giving them a high quality feel and look while keeping the colours of the brand consistant. They are a perfect addition to the packaging, showing off how to order more products and get in touch with the company.
The Finished Product
Jos’ attention to detail in the packaging shows just how much she cares about each candle and diffuser that’s made. You can often find Jo at various markets including Stockbridge and Leith, so make sure you follow her on Instagram to check out where she will be next. You can also visit the website www.jojococandles.com to see the range of products and stockists (some even have their own exclusive fragrances so you may have to visit them all!).
I have really enjoyed working with Jo to create the look she wanted for her company and we all get excited in the office when there is a new scent in the making.
