Sorry for the lack of posting this week. My better half was in Vegas and between it being holiday season for my regular business (shoot / edit / shoot some more), flying solo as mommy during a costume-theme week at school every day this week, and our resident college student getting the flu – well this place was the first to give.

But now I’m back with so many goodies they won’t fit in one post! A free download, a couple of sales, and not one — but TWO — vendor / guest posts! One of those is a big giveaway!

button give us dirty laundry

Another fun guest / vendor post and giveaway from Erin Durband and laundrybags.etsy.com

laundry logo

Hi, my name is Erin and laundry bags are handmade by me, a photographer, for other photographers. They were born out of frustration of not finding any stylish or trendy bags in which to carry my canvases and albums when I met with clients.

laundry bag etsy

My style of photography is popularly known as trash-the-dress, or as I call it, dirty laundry…hence the ‘laundry bag‘ name for my photographic art carrying bags.

These bags allow you to stylishly carry around a canvas or framed art sample to show your clients when you meet with them away from your studio. These deluxe bags are all one-of-a-kind, are fully lined in a contrasting fabric, and feature unique, fun handles.

laundry bag  etsy

laundry bag etsy

I’ve also come up with a handmade and affordable packaging bag! These babies are sewn from deconstructed t-shirts and come in many fun solid colors. And, because they are solid, feel free to get creative with them and add your own embellishments to tie them into your current packaging and branding.

You can buy them one at a time, as you need them, and they come in a couple of different sizes. Since they are made of t-shirt material, they have some stretch to them, they are super soft, and they are completely reusable by your clients. (I take mine to the beach!)

You can buy yours at laundrybags.etsy.com and one lucky Paperie reader will win a set of THREE laundrybag packaging bags in either black or white (your choice!)!!

Simply Color Lab has added eight (8) new custom shapes of Sassy Designs Inc.’s to their standard die line. What does this mean for you? A larger, more unique shape selection to offer to your customers, more individuality, and NO ADDITIONAL COST since these shapes are part of their STANDARD line!

button Luxe-ury

We’re very lucky to have Andrea Halsey of The Designer Concept back again today for another guest / vendor post! She’s sharing new designs for Luxe Card line by Miller’s.

The Designer Concept Luxe 08

The 5×5 and 5×7 Luxe Card Templates are now available for all your flat, folded, and die-cut holiday cards! But these cards are not exclusive to the holidays and can also be used for custom birth announcements, graduation announcements, and more! This is probably the most versatile template set there is.

The Designer Concept Luxe 03

The Designer Concept Luxe 06

There is a secret discount code hidden somewhere on the page and it expires on Friday, October 22nd at midnight.

The Designer Concept Luxe 09

The Designer Concept Luxe 07

As with all templates from The Designer Concept they are extremely easy to manipulate to create completely unique designs every time. Two different photographers can have this same template but produce products completely different and unique to their style and branding. You may never need another card template again!

The Designer Concept Luxe 10

So how does this work in real-time with your clients? Simply show them one or two of these template designs as an example and they will have a general idea of how their cards will turn out. Then they choose their favorite photo from the session and their desired text (available as a printout). Now, you have the creative freedom to produce a design that compliments the colors of their photo. Thus, giving them a completely customized experience and yet in turn it streamlines your holiday card design and sales. No more going back and forth, and back and forth with design proofs!

The Designer Concept Luxe 05

Now these templates are just a bit sweeter with the ability to print on Miller’s new Luxe Cards! Die-cut shaped cards are the NEW thing this year that will have your clients picking up their jaw from the floor. Show them one with a nice little bow as a converted ornament and they will want to snag it right out of your hands!

The Designer Concept Luxe 01

The Designer Concept Luxe 02

Thanks for checking these out and don’t forget to hunt down that discount code before it expires!

The newly released Print & Blog Templates {Rounded Basics} are fun, hip and modern! Just the {Basics} set, they include 10 high-resolution storyboard layouts for printing and 10 web-sized replicas for blogging. Just clip your images into the layers, flatten and save-easy as pie! For web use, I always add my logo and sharpen for web. These templates are flexible and can be rotated, resized and backgrounds changed to maximize your options.
