Getting a new Ting device?
Getting a new Ting portfolio!

Any new or refurbished device from Ting ordered after 4pm pacific today will be sent out in style. By in style, we mean in an original, professionally designed reusable package that encompasses everything you need to activate your phone!
The ordinary “tear-open-and-toss” style of packaging is so five years ago. It’s also the opposite of green (red?)
We envisioned sending our devices in something that’s not only protective but also reusable, practical and, dare we say, fashionable. We worked with Arc & Co Design Collective to make this concept a reality! Robert and Annie (pictured above) conceived this unique shipping portfolio to be a little something extra just for Ting customers.
Once it’s completed its primary task of getting your new or refurbished Ting device to your door safe and sound, this slick portfolio is designed to be reused. It’s the perfect size for carrying around small electronics like tablets and netbooks. The bright felt interior keeps your gadgets safe and sound, while the divider helps to separate and organize your belongings. The shipping portfolio also makes a great report holder, as paper materials and file folders fit snugly inside while the clear plastic window holds a mean personalized cover. Check out multiple views of the brand new portfolio in the gallery below!
As always, we’d love your feedback. If you’d like to see something improved in the next generation Ting shipping portfolio, please let us know.
Aside from being a protective cocoon for your Ting device in transit and a handy reusable portfolio after the fact, there are many more unconventional uses for the Ting portfolio. We shared a photo of one on our Instagram feed, but here are a few more:
- Tiny dog carrier
- Uncomfortable pillow
- Flotation Device
- Awkwardly shaped fan
- Rectangular, largely ineffective frisbee
- Oversized clutch
- Picture frame
- Extremely large pencil case
We genuinely hope you enjoy the new shipping portfolios and the various ways you can use them! As always, if you have any thoughts on how to make these bags more useful (or perhaps your own unconventional use idea), please share!
