Miss Printables - the story so far...

Let me introduce myself, my name is Faye Brown. I've been a designer and animator for 15 years. Since having my own family I wanted to think of a way to design for children and parents - that was fun, useful and easily accessible. Miss Printables was born out of a passion for good design aimed at families.
The first product idea was to design food packaging. I found my son's shop bought ones kept getting squashed and ruined. I thought if I could design our own we could print out any new items as and when we needed them. Whilst this is essentially about a fun and valuable experience playing shops, older kids will also learn from how the boxes are constructed and folded into 3D forms.  
I love to hear feedback from any of the products. One mum who bought the food packaging suggested offering a version with plain boxes so the kids could draw their own designs on the card before folding into shape. I love that idea! (it's coming soon)


Printable food packaging available here



Cut out the templates, fold and stick!


After the food packaging came other ideas for imaginative play - a post office, travel set and a bank. In the making is also a doctors kit and a newsagents!
