Launching the AIGA New England Network
This winter, the New England chapters are banding together for the holidays to release a limited edition set of gift wrap sheets. 50% of all proceeds will be donated to New England food banks, with the other half supporting your local AIGA chapter. The Boston chapter will be donating half of its proceeds to the Greater Boston Food Bank.
About the gift wrap
The sheets will be sold in sets of five, with designs created by AIGA members. The designs use a combination of metallic gold and black inks, and are printed on Sappi Opus Dull 70lb, with paper donated by Sappi. Printing is provided by Signature Printing in Rhode Island.
With the launch of this annual holiday initiative, we are beginning a New England Network composed of the Boston, Rhode Island, Connecticut, Maine, Vermont, and Brand Central chapters. We hope for this to be the beginning of more collaborations, better showcasing of New England design, and greater resources for designers in the region.
Board members from the different chapters got together in Boston at WeWork to check out samples and work on designs.
The gift wrap sets will be sold beginning in December at different holiday events held by the New England chapters.
