STEREOHYPE | (STBBMP) EDITION GIFT BOXES | BUTTON BADGE MOTIF PRINT SETS
This is the latest FL@33-designed addition to the deluxe gift box range for the studio's sister-company Stereohype – the graphic art label and online boutique. Customers who purchase a set of Stereohype's Button Badge Motif Prints will get a free gift box with their order – while stock lasts. Individual print boxes will also be available to purchase separately.
___ The super-elegant new gift boxes feature a foil-blocked hand-printed Stereohype mascot squirrel in fancy rose-gold. The stereohype.com gift boxes look and feel sophisticated, are sustainable and made of matt black cardboard. They complete the gift box range that already includes three matchbox-style gift boxes in three different sizes for online badge orders.
___ Our trusted UK-based gift box supplier carefully customises our boxes – one by one – using the suitably red hot foil press they kindly took pictures of for us in action, so we can show it to you here.

PRESS CLIPPINGS AND FEEDBACK
(...) B.I.O. undoubtedly makes Stereohype one of the coolest online shopping destinations for button badges. (...) Gavin Lucas, excerpt from his book Badge/Button/Pin
(...) The humble button badge is an unforgiving canvas. Small and designed to be viewed from a distance, great badge designs need to be clear and to the point. To celebrate the best of what's possible on a 25mm round surface, 15 years ago Agathe and Tomi from design studio FL@33 and graphic art label Stereohype created a button design competition, asking artists and designers to submit sets of up to four badges. (...) Neil Bennett, Digital Arts
(...) Stereohype's ... badge design competition ... has become an annual, rather joyous stalwart of the emerging designer community in the UK. (...) Emily Gosling, AIGA Eye on Design
(...) Über die B.I.O.-Initiative (by invitation only) und diverse Button-Wettbewerbe ist so in den vergangenen (...) Jahren eine beachtliche Anzahl an kleinformativen Kunstwerken zusammengekommen. Verblüffend ist dabei immer wieder die kreative Vielfalt, die sich selbst auf so beschränktem Raum (25mm) zu entfalten vermag. (...) Christine Moosmann, Novum
(...) espaces d’expression restreints à 25 mm de diamètre, les objets supportent un art de la présentation qui ne souffre pas l’étalage. Les séries B.I.O. (by invitation only) accessoirisent l’identité personnelle : à exhiber, à afficher, à affirmer. /
(...) The objects – a rather tiny 25mm-wide space for expression – lend themselves to an art of display that can’t be overdone. The B.I.O. (by invitation only) series accessorise personal identity – exhibiting, displaying, asserting it. (...) Caroline Bouige, Étapes: / Étapes: international
(...) I like the prints very much – the paper and print quality are really excellent. That whole project is so interesting – I'm amazed at the number and variety of the badges, and very impressed by the quality of presentation. I'm happy to have been able to take part in it! (...) Dan Fern
