Nicer instructions on the back of the packaging. I'm really happy with these. The original version had white paper that was just really plain and it made everything look cheap despite being laser printed. This printing is partially silvered, so it glows metallically in bright light so you can see every word. When you tilt it, you can see through it, to the clay colors (just like the front label) This just makes it look a little nicer. I'm going to do the same with the labels that say what colors are in each pack.

Thanks for looking. I'm trying to get the packaging up to par with distributors' standards. A retail art store wants to sell this on consignment (to give me a little more money from each sale because he's a nice guy) and he was approached by a distributor who saw a sample I left with him. They want to move this stuff into retail stores all over the U.S., but what's holding that back is the packaging. I need to find a glue that secures the celophane. At the moment, I use packing tape, and it shows. It needs to be an adhesive that is not apparent so that the packaging is professional, pristine, and flawless. It's a shame how much is weighted on the packaging when it comes to a product being sellable, but it is what it is, and I'm willing to adapt to meet those demands.

try sealing the plastic with heat, should be cheaper and looks pro enough

Good idea, Eduardo! Never even considered that! Thanks. :)
