One of the keys to making your design come alive is choosing just the right colour combination. Whether you’re attempting to evoke the feelings associated with a breathtaking landscape, a romantic sunset or a dynamic scene bursting with colour, it takes a trained eye to bring together the perfect hues to drive your message home. Using the right colours and matching them perfectly can be a deal maker.


Choosing the perfect colour for your packaging is what sets your brand apart. And, that’s why colour and its theories continue to be the pivot for not just clothes, but everything else like interiors, hair, makeup, and much more.


The best way to know which colours to pair is to take a look at the colour wheel. The colour wheel was first invented by Sir Isaac Newton in the 18th century when he tried to condense the colour spectrum into a wheel and visually represent the relationship between them. The wheel has been segregated into the various categories. While we will focus on using it for clothing and outfits, this theory is universal and applies to just about anything that deals with colours.



One fundamental principle for matching anything, is combining colours that work in harmony. Red and green, violet and yellow, blue and orange – complementary colours, as the name goes, work best when put together. These are exactly opposite to each other on the colour wheel. They might seem bold to look at, but the outputs will be perfect. If you observe carefully, your spring and summer clothing is mostly designed using complementary colours. While some might argue against this concept, it is actually a matter of choice as some like making bold statements. But what does this mean for your brand and it’s packaging? We advise that you play around with our slot gift boxes with changeable ribbon to really take advantage of the colour combos.

The name “garnet” originates from the medieval Latin granatus, meaning “pomegranate,” in reference to the similarity of the red color and intricate appearance. Necklaces adorned with red garnets graced the pharaohs of ancient Egypt. Signet rings in ancient Rome featured garnet intaglios that were used to stamp the wax that private and secured important documents.
