We had wondered about adding labels to the different pockets of our instruction/tool fold out case. For continuity with the rest of the typography of the projects, we stenciled the contents of the pockets onto white cotton hemming tape.
The pen bled a lot more into the cotton tape than was anticipated, and we ended up with quite a messy, blurry label. Before persevering with finding alternatives for the ink pen, we decided to make sure that we were actually happy with the look of the labels.
Pocket label on the fold out case
It was agreed that the labels weren’t a look that we were really happy with. We feel that with so few items in the fold out case that it perhaps wasn’t necessary to label the individual pockets; this would also leave the fold out case uncomplicated, with the instructional drawings clearly standing out.
