Custom Labels for Homemade Foods

Chef’s medallions

I’ve always had a major thing for stationery. When I was a child, I would spend a large portion of my allowance at the neighborhood stationery shop, which my family refered to as ta papeterie chérie, and to this day I go weak in the knee for smooth-paged notebooks and well-designed greeting cards. And stickers. Oh, stickers.

So when the good people at Felix Doolittle got in touch and offered to send me samples of their personalized labels, I found it hard to resist.

Oval kitchen labels

Felix Doolittle is a small Massachusetts company that specializes in “extraordinary illustrated papers,” whimsically designed by Hong Kong-born artist Felix Fu. They use premium materials and print, cut, and package everything by hand. Indeed, the quality and attention to detail were evident when I opened each of the incredibly neatly packed boxes.

I am quite smitten with my labels, and I thought I’d share them with you in plenty of time before the holidays. It seems to me that these would make a one-of-a-kind gift for the cooks you love, or you could order your own personalized labels to adorn the homemade edible gifts you’ll be giving out this year.

Word play stickers

Because this is high-quality, handmade stationery, it is not cheap, but I asked for, and was given, a promotion code that C&Z readers can use if they’re interested in placing an order. Enter the code CZSAVES20 and you’ll get 20% off anything in the online store, from now until December 1st.

Note: I accepted the samples with no obligation to write about them, and aside from these (admittedly generous) samples, I won’t receive compensation of any kind for this post. I simply decided to share because I like the company’s style and philosophy, and I am sincerely impressed with the labels they sent.
