    But the real treat was the artwork on the outside of the box.

    Kudos to the resident artist that works at Ton Bihn our Tootsie thanks you also.

    I think we should have a collection Tom Bihn art display someday. (:

    Beau, I hope that you & the other Bihn-artists realize how much we all enjoy seeing your artwork! (And my dog Maddie approves, too.)

    Your welcome Beau once again a awesome work. I also have a drawing of Kiya on another box. We will keep
    these and use our art boxes to store some of our TB goodies.

    I'm with you here, Grandcache. After a while I started feeling guilty for asking so much, so I stopped. I'll have to live vicariously through the others' boxes!

    gochicken and Grandcache: do you mean you've asked for box artwork but haven't received any yet? Might be that your request came through on a super busy shipping day, but we can check!

    I asked very early on in my TB ordering infancy.. twice for me and once for my mom's birthday Cardinal LS order. After reading more in the forums, it was pointed out that there was just one person boxing, and that they were REALLY busy (which is a good thing), so I left it at that. I am OK with it... it makes it easier to re-use the boxes. I kept them all for a while until it became a fire hazard! I am so blessed by all of you in so many other ways..... box art, while wonderful, is such a small portion of all the amazing things you all create that I get to enjoy, so I hope my reply to Grandcache will be taken as a sympathetic response, NOT in any way a complaint! :)

    I agree with gochicken...I love seeing the artwork and really appreciate the quality of Tom Bihn bags and accessories. My boxes have not gone to waste either...this year they were my "go to" shipping box for mailed holiday gifts. The responses were interesting...some recipients inquired about "Tom Bihn" and others expressed disappointment that the label on the outside did not match the gift on the inside. Lesson learned...next year shop Tom Bihn for holiday gifts... :-)

    DEFINITELY worth posting to the Tom Bihn gallery on Flickr!!

    The drawing of Tootsie is really cute, but what REALLY nails it is that little Tootsie Roll candy on the side!! Awesome beyond words.

    I LOVE the boxes TB uses. If you ever buy one of the bigger travel bags, covet the big boxes and save them. They are bigger than any of the free Priority Mail boxes you can get at the post office, and make GREAT boxes if you ever need to ship a laptop (lots of room for packing material).

    Or if you're like me and you loan your Tom Bihn bags out to your friends to help encourage them to try packing lighter, it's great being able to ship them in a TB box.

    We just received another Tom Bihn box artwork with the order of our medium cafe bag.
    I love the Farman F.121 Jabiru airplane Tom uses as the symbol for the company
    so I requested a picture of it on the box. Below is the great artwork again but if you
    look closely at the one window on the plane you will see a mini surprise. That is our Kiya
    flying first class ha ha. Another one to add to our collection.
