security pattern paper bags

I’m a sucker for cute paper products, plain and simple. Last week, Max and I went into the city to photograph Hesta Prynn for At Home With and ended up trekking around town looking for patterned paper we could use in projects. After coming home with our arms full of wallpaper and wrapping paper, I realized I may have a problem. But I think it’s a problem I can live with, so I’m fully embracing my patterned paper fanaticism.

These awesome new paper bags from Present & Correct are definitely going on my wishlist. They combine sweet little bags that would be perfect for gifts or organizing with beautiful envelope security patterns. Each 5″ x 7″ bag comes in packs of 8 (4 designs, 2 of each) and would be such a fun way to organize office supplies, mail gifts or just package little odds and ends. Click here to check them out and order ($6.27 USD) online. Thanks, Neal & Mark! xo, grace

    Génial! Simple et intelligente, j’adore! Merci beaucoup.

  3. I love the contrast of the baby blue with the white on the security pattern paper bags…I only thought this pattern came on check envelopes. Little did I know…I’d repurpose these for a yarn-themed party. Maybe put tiny skeins of yarn in each as a party favor. Knitters would like that, I’d imagine.

  4. Grace, I too have a big weakness for paper goods. These patterned bags are great. Yeah, something about paper makes me weak in knees and probably wallet too. Thank goodness I can design my own too.

  5. So nice! Great for post cards too! I always think of vacation when I see small paper bags because I’m always buying post cards!

    My name is Tania and I too am a paper products/stationery junkie. Love present and correct, I always want to fill my cart with everything. These are a great find, they’d also be wonderful to put part favors in.

    Have you checked out Lost Crates? Its one of those box of the month things and the only one I’ve wanted to subscribe too but unfortunately they don’t deliver to Hawaii. Great little office and paper objects.

  7. Pretty, but I hope they don’t get sued out of existence. #3 is clearly the Chase logo. They probably own usage like this. Which makes me think that any pattern too similar to an existing real world one is probably owned by the printer or bank; they spend some R&D making sure they work as attack technologies change. Yes, even for boring old stuff like paper.

      the chase logo isn’t perforated/dotted like that:

      i have a feeling that’s a large enough of a change for copyright law.
