Looking to create a custom red packet design to help your brand stand out from the flurry of mass-market red packet designs that flood the market every Chinese New Year?

You’ve come to the right place! At Weio, our team of red packet design experts has put together a list of simple customization techniques that can help bring any design to the next level!

Read on to learn which technique would be most applicable for your new design.

3D Pop-Ups Concepts

3D pop up red packet

When our clients ask for eye-popping designs, we take it quite literally – presenting the rare 3D pop-up red packet, that is not only delightful to receive but also makes for a great talking point.

The idea of gifting a red packet is not unlike the customary process of presenting a gift, and that was where we got the inspiration to create these playful iterations of the traditional red packet – so that the recipient will get a fun surprise every time.

Laser-cut to precision and assembled meticulously by hand, the design possibilities are endless with these 3D pop-up customizations – from blooming flowers to birds bursting out of the bushes, what could you think of next?


Embossing With Spot UV

If you have gone through the process of red packet printing or any sort of printing before, you might be familiar with these two techniques – embossing and spot UV.

For the uninitiated, here’s a quick breakdown of these two techniques:


A technique to create raised designs in the material, so that it will pop out from the paper.

Spot UV

A technique that layers on a coat of shine and protection to specific ‘spots’ on the design.

Now, to take things to the next level, our experts layer on these techniques (and in some instances, even add on hot stamping of gold or coloured foil) to create a combination effect that results in your design looking all the more eye-catching!


Embroidery On Paper

Yes, you read that correctly! With needlework coming back into trend, even red packets are now getting that additional textural and visual oomph with sewn-on embroidery designs.

For those curious about how we are able to sew on paper, embroidery is used in conjunction with special types of premium fabric paper which work well with even the most intricate of patterns.

Want to achieve a premium look? Combining elaborate embroidery designs with gold foil is a fool-proof way to get that luxurious effect.

Prefer some fun and modern? Opt to layer on embroidery with modern illustrations for a unique Instagram-worthy look!
