Product Decorating – Custom Work

Product Decorating : Private Label

For your very own brand recognition and high profit structure!

Selling private label cosmetics (like us) as opposed to branded lines has a lot of benefits for growing your business.  For example, you can buy branded lines almost anywhere nowadays.  So if you decide to sell a branded line, your clients do not necessarily have to come back to you for their makeup.  However, if you brand your own line – your clients have no option other than to return to you for their favorite makeup product.  And as such, private label cosmetics brings you constant reorders.

PRODUCT DECORATING – Easy To Do It Yourself!
Our low minimums allow you to start small without a large investment.  You can create your own logo labels on a home or office printer and be up and running in days. Or custom order logo labels through a professional label manufacturer of your choice. They are very inexpensive and easy to apply.
