A Quick Convo With Anjoul Bliss
Tell us about Anjoul Soaps and you! What inspires you to create?
Anjoul Soaps is my dream come true. I grew up in Puebla, Mexico and moved to the US in 2002. After graduating from college, I traveled the world. During my travels, I explored different artistic mediums and techniques. Every one of my soaps is a reflection of this. Its artisanal soap making meets artistry.
Ever since I was little, I knew I wanted to be an artist. My mom and grandma were always working on some sort of art or craft and I knew I was one of them as well. They inspire me so much. Everyone in my family does. My uncle Chucho has this incredible collection of minerals at his house in Mexico that looks like a museum! This is where my passion and admiration for minerals and precious stones really started.
We love your story. It’s like you’ve spent your life prepping for this business. We’re happy to help support this. Could you let our readers in on how Paper Mart helps you and your business?
Paper Mart provides me with one of the most important parts of my product – packaging. I get my beautiful, hot-stamped white boxes from you! After trying many other companies, I came to realize that nobody compares to Paper Mart in quality and price.
Well, we’re happy to help you and your business. For any artist starting out, or for small business owners in general, do you have any words of advice you would like to share?
Hang in there! I’ve found that if you act from the heart, there won’t be any other path but success.
The Beauty Of Custom Packaging
If you are looking to enhance your business and reinforce your brand story, consider custom packaging. For Mariel, she uses her packaging to let her gemstones shine. Her boxes feature the beautiful Anjoul Bliss logo hot stamped against a semi-glossed surface. Its overall sleek finish offers a visually appealing and clean look that accentuates every detail of her handmade gemstones, elevating her soap gemstones to the status it deserves, a handcrafted work of art.
