Just as I was scrambling to pack and send off gifts to far-flung friends, a very interesting box, and idea, arrived for me. Artist and dear friend Lisa Morphew’s yearly Christmas box came decorated with trees in red marker and…a poem. It had been printed out and taped on the OUTSIDE, the name of the poet, Sarah Messer, scribbled below.
What a simple, clever piece of guerilla signage that would add no more than 5 minutes to the packing up a gift.
And how wonderful! Who knows how many people who handled that box on its way read the poem, or even a snippet of it?
What poem would you print out to attach to your packages?
