In need of some good luck this year? Year of the Dog 2018 belong to the Earth element so it is more favourable for those born in Earth, Fire and Metal years, as compared to those born in Water and Wood years. The luckiest colours to wear in 2018 are: earthy tones, brown, yellow, beige, but also green and blue. In feng shui, this applies to both the colours you are wearing, as well as the colours of your home interior design and even business packaging. Here are the colours that will bring you luck in Earth Dog Year 2018, according to Feng Shui experts.


Earthy Brown and Beige
Brown and beige are the colours of earth. They represent stability, safety and loyalty. Brown can be used by those who have a scattered or volatile attention, but used excessively, it can become restrictive and constraining. Using these colours in your packaging this year may help with building brand loyalty and trust with your customers. Warm or cold tones of beige can induce a state of relaxation, but also of boredom. So, luckily for you, we have introduced our metal collection just in time.

If you’re looking for an earthy colour, with a hint of luxury, ourcopper andbronze collection of boxes will make a fabulous choice. Using our signature pearl lustre paper it will definitely bring that touch of sophistication and class to your luxury gift product packaging. If you don’t want to use it excessively, we suggest combining it withshades of green ribbon. TheNatural Kraft collection also fits into the earthy team quite nicely with it’seco-friendly packaging options. It is also ideal for linen and natural fibre clothing and point of sale gift packaging.


Delightful Yellow
Yellow is the color of joy, happiness and creativity. It’s energizing, stimulative and it brings forward optimism, clarity in ideas, intelligence. It keeps at bay depression and anxiety. It is recommended for people lacking energy and finding it difficult to concentrate. It will be a great colour to keep your brand on the top of customers minds and ensure they keep coming back for more!


If you’re not too keen on bright yellow boxes, we definitely recommend our high qualityLemon Yellow grosgrain ribbon to fit our range of slot gift boxes with changeable ribbon. A bright, vibrant and very pretty colour to add to white or black gift boxes. Ideal for cupcake bakery boxes or baby gift hampers. We have 56 new ribbon colours launching in March, so the opportunity to create your own inspiring and lucky packaging colour combinations will be almost endless!

From everyone at Foldabox, we wish you a very happy, healthy and prosperous 2018. Happy Chinese New Year!
