Help Us Choose

We've got a lot going on here in the studio. Finalizing designs, testing product, preparing for the October Release...decisions, decisions, decisions.

Well we can be quite the indecisive bunch sometimes, so we thought it would be fun to get your opinion! So will you help us?

We are trying to finalize the lids for our inks. And...we have narrowed it down to these two. We are torn, completely torn. So what do you think? Design A or B?

We'd love to hear which one you'd choose! And thanks for your input!

  1. I like B! INKS??? Dawn, how fabulous!!! I'm so excited for you.

  2. The B one shouts out Wplus9 design studio the A it gets lost in! :>

    ReplyDelete
  3. I agree - I like the "B" design. How exciting!!

    ReplyDelete
  4. B just jumps right out at you.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Inks? How exciting. I like design A - it's a little more edgy.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Personally, I like design A. And I really like that "made in the USA" is so clear. But for retail, would design B hold its own better? The wording on B pops a bit more. I don't think I'm helping. :)

    ReplyDelete
  7. Your name is very identifiable and focal on B if that's your goal, go wtih B. If you want people to "think ink" got with A.

    ReplyDelete
  8. I have to fall in the B camp although A is nice too! I like how B clearly shouts your name and looks great too!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I love the crisp, clean look of Design B.

    I had no idea you were working on Pigment inks. Soooo excited!!!

    ReplyDelete
  10. First, yay ink! I really, really like the graphic punch of A, but your branding is better on B, so if you want easy brand identity, B is the better choice. But, A is the more eye-catching design. This probably didn't help your decision making.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I like B because it clearly shows the brand of ink. Anything you create just has to be fabulous!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I really like the design of A, but I like how your logo is so prominent on B! Maybe combine the two? Design A with a more visible logo? :-)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Definitely "B"! Dawn, I am beyond thrilled to hear this news!!!!! Yay for Wplus9!!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I like B - because it really showcase the brand of the ink from Wplus9.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Oh, this just makes me sooooo happy!!!! How awesome, Dawn!

    I love "B" too! I love that it has your full logo on it!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  16. A is more pleasing to the creative eye (has a little character)...B has a much cleaner logo look to it! I like them both...sorry, that isn't much help, is it?! :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. "B" -- goes with your cleaner and simpler approach. Bet the ink rocks!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I definitely like "B" the best!

    ReplyDelete
  19. I agree with what others are saying. Choose design A if you want eye-catching and design B if you want to emphasize branding. However, I do think the "made in the USA" notation is a hugh selling point (at least for me). Is there any way to incorporate that into design B?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Well...
    I'm not really going to be any help...
    I like them both...
    but since there's already a crowd here and don't want to be a party pooper...
    let's chose B!! : )
    But let me just say that in my infinite wisdom...
    because well...
    I'm really smart like that...
    ink pads mean colors.
    If you're going to have colored inks then you're going to have colored cardstock...
    right?!!!!
    Can I give a HUGE Sounthern holler of WHOO-HOO!!!!
    Lovin' it!!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I like B! Can't wait to hear more about your inks!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. "B" because your brand is more prominent but I like the edgyness of the "A" design. Maybe if you brought something to the banner on design "B" like those background accents ih the So 80's stamp set it will give it some edge. I am so excited that you are releasing ink. I have yet to commit to big ink pads. One of the big reasons is because I can't make up my mind if I want dye ink or pigment ink...everyone seems to use dye ink but I really like how a lot of my stamping turns out with pigment ink. I will be trying your ink out for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Design B!!! Because Wplus9 is bigger :D And it's less "messy" than Design A.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I like B because of your company logo.

    ReplyDelete
  25. "B"...it has Wplus9 logo on it!!Awesome!
    YAY!!! Wplus9 inks can't wait to try it out!!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I really like design B! So excited:)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Design B. I like the focus on the company name.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I can understand why you are torn between the two designs; each has its own pros and cons. Based on what I've seen of your company - and I haven't been around long to see much - I'd go with design B. The prominence of your well-designed logo stands out and tells people of the brand behind the ink. What a great addition to your product line.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I know I'm not going to be any help as I love the stylish look of A but know B might be more recognizable. Love the idea of ink though. Can't wait for the release!

    ReplyDelete
  30. A all the way! It's distinctive and classy - just like Wplus9. B is Just too predictable. Now I would up the font size just a bit on your name on design A.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Inks?! Huray!!! I would pick the `B` design.

    ReplyDelete
  32. How exciting. I prefer the B design. I like how your company name is highlighted as well as your logo. I think it's better for your brand image.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I agree with the others - B, because it has the full logo on it! How exciting!!

    ReplyDelete
  34. I like Design B...your logo is big and clear.

    ReplyDelete
  35. While A is fun....I think B is the best bet!

    ReplyDelete
  36. A all the way.

    While it seems "edgy" because of the balance and logo bleed, it's really a more mature design. As a bonus, it won't feel dated in 3 years when the shine has worn off that double-banner trend. (And you'll want to fix the kerning if you do go with A. It looks like you've already done B.)

    ReplyDelete

    1. And I think B would be better if it were at your signature angle, larger, and with one end of the banner over the edge.

      Delete
    2. I agree with your insights!

      Delete
    3. I so agree with Sarah here too! I think A would be perfect if your signature WPlus9 could be included in it ... but B just feels predictable and 'safe' the way it is now. YAY on ink!! Looking forward to seeing more!

      Delete
  37. I have to say B because your logo and name stand out and is distinctive. I love the little 'plops' on A but your logo won me over.

    ReplyDelete
  38. B - It just looks more "professional" and more Wplus9-ish.
    Hugs, Karin

    ReplyDelete
  39. Another vote for B and yay for WPlus9 inks!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I like B. I think it is a cleaner look.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I like the design of A, but you have a logo and I really think you should use your logo on your product so my vote is for B.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Another vote for B because the brand name is prominent. I am so excited about your new inks.

    ReplyDelete
  43. I vote for Design B. WPlus9 is kind of lost on Design A, but is very prominent on Design B.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I am of no help! I am completely torn as well! However, my 4 year old son immediately picked A bc the ink splotch looks like blood to him! lol HTH ;o)

    ReplyDelete
  45. INK! How wonderful! I can't wait - if its from you, I know I will love it! So, even though design B has the company name front and center, I think design A is fun, edgy and totally you! Congratulations, Dawn, this is such great news!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Design B looks more professional and is my personal choice.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I like design A best but your logo needs to be added to the lid.

    ReplyDelete
  48. B
    I like it because its a cleaner design.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Design B!!! By leaps & bounds! It's easy to read. It has more visual appeal as well.

  50. B shows off your name better, but I'm drawn towards A.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I like design B better. I like seeing the Wplus9 insignia displayed on the front of the case and I also like the bold presentation of Pure Color in the banner. The overall case design of B catches my eye better than A.

    ReplyDelete
  52. I prefer the design of the first one, but the second one is more recognizable as WPlus9, and in the end that might be more important!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Design B is my favorite!
    Congratulations on introducing ink pads soon!

  54. The B one .....so Wplus9!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I love the edgy design of A (especially the ink splotch!). But also love your logo on design B. I know...I'm no help at all!
    How fun that you're asking for our input :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. B, it is classic, clean and simple. The first one leaves me wondering what those blobs are (yes I know they are ik splotches)...yes first one more trendy, however changing the design after the trendiness wears off may be costly and will create an inconsistent look of your product line over a period of time.

    ReplyDelete
  57. B,B,B,B !!!!! I think most of us have gone for ink lid design B,for me it was the one that I felt looked clean and professional. So nice of you to ask us, it's refreshing to feel like our opinion counts.

    ReplyDelete
  58. So excited to hear about your upcoming ink!!! I like design B!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Give me a B! Love it.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Everyone in my house voted for B! Can't wait to try out the new inks and see what other surprises you have in store for us!

    ReplyDelete
  61. OH EM GEE!! This is so exciting!! I vote for B!

    ReplyDelete
  62. I vote for B. "A" detracts too much from what's important... the brand/your name.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I like the B choice. I can see that it is from your company easily, and I love the banner also.

    ReplyDelete
  64. B is "cute" but I'm afraid the banner might go out of style. A is so timeless. Also I think you are letting the ink speak for itself and I love made in the USA.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I think B shows who it comes from better. The company name stands out more. :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. I definitely think "B" - the ink name and your brand name stand out so much better. "A" is good but you don't know where to look/read first - your eye is drawn to the graphic but that does not define your product.

    ReplyDelete
  67. B hands down. The design is crisp, clean, memorable (which is what all good advertising strives to be), and the banner will not go out of style: it hasn't in several thousand years so why worry about it now?

    ReplyDelete
  68. I like them both, but I think I like Design B the best :) How exciting that you're coming out with inks!

    ReplyDelete
  69. YAY!!! Design B gets my vote! :) Can't wait...

    ReplyDelete
  70. I like 'B' with "Pure Color" in the banner. :)

    ReplyDelete
  71. I think B is the best! So excited for this!!

    ReplyDelete
  72. Definitely B. Branding is important and I had to search for it on design A.

    ReplyDelete
  73. I like A, but I think I am going to be outnumbered LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  74. inks????!!! yay!!! I cant wait!!!
    as far as design...well thats a hard one...i like "B" because the company logo stands out, its nice and clean, but then again I really like "A" too because of it's edginess and spunk!
    how about a combo! well i guess i'm not much help :) :) either way Dawn I look forward to purchasing more of your amazing products!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Love both, but B probably speaks to me a bit more. Congrats with the new addition to the W+9 stable.

    ReplyDelete
  76. I like B! They're both great, but I think B really works too perfectly with your logos!

    ReplyDelete
  77. I'd say B, just because it is more similar to your logo, so that people can quickly make the connection when seeing them that they are Wplus9 products =)

    ReplyDelete
  78. I would have to say B, its more fun and modern looking and it goes along with your logo and badge better then the other one!

    ReplyDelete
  79. B is the cleaner of the 2 and the brand name is more noticeable but I think A would stand out more on shelves in stores as the different design with the off the edge circles draws the eye in first. So I would say it depends on what you're trying to do with them.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Oh, this is exciting. I'm counting down the days to your next release :)
    B gets my vote!

    ReplyDelete
  81. I like both designs, but I think A is more cutting edge. I know B says your name better, but I think A says design better.

    ReplyDelete
  82. oh defintely B as your logo is on it :) x

    ReplyDelete
  83. "B" is the one that I like the best.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Totally lovin' the B design - banners are all the rage, and the design looks so CURRENT and eye-catching! Excited to hear the news of your new ink pads.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Hi
    I loooove the B
    It give a better impact for the eyes
    Really good design

    ReplyDelete
  86. I like B - it has a clean design and is less busy than A

    ReplyDelete
  87. Design B - clean, crisp, perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Definitely design B, since your brand logo stands out and it just looks more polished.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Design B stands out. However, I noticed the Made in the USA isn't on design B and that is kind of cool that it is made here!

    ReplyDelete
  90. i hope you will choose B, it is a great design, my eyes were immediately catched by the clearly design!

    ReplyDelete
  91. B. Logo is bigger, product name is bigger too. Don't hide your identity! You've earned your reputation, now flaunt it!

    ReplyDelete
  92. A lot of work in counting all these votes, hi hi! But I do think I see more B's and that would definitely be my choice as well, love the graphics there and it also shows your company name better and that's something to be proud of as well!!
    Hugs, Wendy

    ReplyDelete
  93. Oh fun little game :)...I choose B! Very clear and professional!

    ReplyDelete
  94. B! :-)

    I can't wait to try out the new inks!

    ReplyDelete
  95. I love A!!!! It's original and really eye-catching! B seems more staid/traditional (read: boring!).

  97. the design on B is like a main TV station in Australia. So when I look at B all I think about is TV, not ink. I like the A ☺

    have a look here http://channelnine.ninemsn.com.au/

    ReplyDelete
  98. I love the look of B! Can't wait to try your inks.

    ReplyDelete
  99. I really like "B" because right away I can tell it is your product!

    ReplyDelete
  100. Design B jumped out at me the most. They are both great though!

    ReplyDelete
  101. I love A. It's so new and trendy. B is too "predictable".

    ReplyDelete
  102. B is predictable -- I gotta go with A! But either way, I am jumping up and down with joy to hear about Wplus9 ink!

    ReplyDelete
  103. I prefer A, but the company name is not visible enough. While B is cleaner and more visibly Wplus9, that double ended banner is a little too trendy to work over the long haul...

    ReplyDelete
  104. B - I might be too late to vote though!

    ReplyDelete
  105. I like B MUCH better, neater, more symmetrical, I am big on symmetry. PSYCHED to hear you are getting INKS - YEAH!

    ReplyDelete
  106. Love the clean, modern look of B. (Matches your "style" of stamps, if you ask me.) But I'll buy them, either way!

    ReplyDelete
  107. I like B better. It showcases your name MUCH more prominently.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Oooh fun. I'll play!

    I like both, too. B is definitely the "safer" route. I like A, except for the fact that the brand/logo is not as distinct or apparent.

    Looks like majority like B though... Either way, I'm buying me some ink! Lol

    ReplyDelete
  109. B gets my VOTE!! =) THANKS for sharing!! How EXCITING!! Have a FABULOUS WEEK!! =)

    ReplyDelete
  110. I like A...but make the company name bigger.

    ReplyDelete
  111. B hands down. Appeals more to my balanced nature.

    ReplyDelete
  112. I personally like A better, but B better showcases your name.

    ReplyDelete
  113. I would vote B. You recognize the company name immediately and the Pure Color brand with the type of ink pad marked clearly underneath. I think it stand out better overall.

    ReplyDelete
  114. "A" looks more arresting so it warrants a second look (or a third, so on..) so my vote's for it (but maybe you can make the other fonts bigger, too, so the company name stands out more..?)
