Custom labels!

It’s been a busy time at the Soap Works!  We have so much news to relate: new products, new tshirts, new venues to purchase Soap Works soaps and more that will take the next few weeks to get through updates on it all!

To start us out, the last couple of months have been shower season!  No, there’s no particular time of the year to prefer showers over baths, and yes, it’s been pretty rainy, but I am speaking specifically of baby and bridal showers!  Thanks to a couple of recent special orders, we’ve now got a pretty good handle on new packaging for folks who want to provide soap to their guests as mementos and favors, and we’re happy to offer custom labeling!

Custom labels!

Custom labels!

We offer bulk pricing on the full range of 100% olive oil soap in the ca. 1 ounce sample size, and we can customize the front of each bar to provide up to three or four lines of text, in addition to the date of of your event!

From simple to elaborate!

Want custom printing for your event?  Just email us for details!

In addition to customizing the labels, we also now offer two packaging upgrades to add a festive bit of color or to coordinate with the color theme for you event.  Choose a tissue paper liner in your custom color (subject to availability) in one of two styles:

The first is a simple slip, placed between the label and the soap so that a bit of color shows to either side of the brown paper label.

In addition to this simple color option, you can also have a more finished version where the sample is wrapped like a package in the tissue before having the label added.

Depending on the size of the order, it could be possible to have two or even three colors, subject to availability of tissue paper in the desired colors, of course.

So, if you are looking for party favors or small gifts to accentuate your special event, just send us an email or visit our Etsy shop to request a custom order!

Sock it to me!

What’s better than a luxurious bar of handmade soap?  A luxurious bar of handmade soap in a nubbly organic cotton sock that makes it easy to hang on to a slippery bar in the shower and provides soft exfoliation!

I’ve been experimenting with little sachets sized for my soap bars that would take even the mildest, softest soap and give it an added texture for superior scrubability!

"Scrubability"?  What, you're just making up words now?

“Scrubability”!?!  What, you’re just making up words now?

I’ve made my prototypes out of a raw organic cotton to avoid fabric allergies and because cotton is one of the few fibers with the magical property of getting stronger when it is wet while still remaining soft and pliable.  Add a bar of soap and the cotton will allow the silky lather through while adding just a little bit of roughness for getting skin clean and smooth.

See those little purl stitch bumps?  THAT'S scrubability.

Once the soap inside is used up, you can just pop the sock in the washer and get it ready for the next full size bar, or you can keep it hanging around to drop in all the slivers and ends of soap bars that are too small to be easily held in the hand, bits that would otherwise clog the bottom of the soap dish and get thrown away next cleaning day.

There you go: an ideal blend of luxury and thrift!

Now that I have my prototype figured out, I’m going into production.  These should be in the shop by the end of the week!
