Our birthday “Pop Quiz #4” featured a $150.00 gift certificate from Colorvale™ and envi photoshop actions. We invited Stacie Jensen from Colorvale™ to do a guest / vendor post and tell everyone a little bit more about her company and products. She even let us know about an amazing “freebie” that is getting killer reviews – you can see more about it at the download link below!

Why purchase Photoshop Actions from Colorvale™?

The answer to this is very important. Because we are backed by well over 13 years of Photoshop experience. Stacie’s background in Photoshop extended back when Photoshop was in its infancy. Stacie’s graphic design & photography have been published nationally in magazines. Your edits are in the hands of a professional who knows Photoshop inside and out! You have spent tons in gear, choked down a ton of learning and now you need to invest in what will help you save time & product quality products to your clients each and every time!

There is nothing more annoying than uploading your amazing photos onto Facebook just to see them compressed and pixelated.

Colorvale™ is here to make your editing effortless & save you time!

Actions Included:

   or Landscape photos

•  Ultimate Web Sharpening – your photos will look beautifully
   sharp every time

•  Clean white 5 px border for professional matting

•  Action to quickly save your image as PNG before uploading
   to Facebook

•  This action does NOT harm the layers of your edited image
   or resize the original. It will make a duplicate file before
   making the necessary changes for Facebook quality.

button I wanna publish ‘zines

We’re excited to have GO{4}PRO Photos back for another fantastic GIVEAWAY and guest / vendor post! They’re here to debut their new Product Guide Look Book – Paperie readers get a $50 discount, and one lucky Paperie viewer will walk away with a Product Guide Look Book of their very own!

Product Guide Look Book

The Pricing Product Guide
THE PRICING PRODUCT GUIDE is designed to solve two problems that photographers face. The first being that we want to inspire our clients to do something amazing with what we’ve created for them. What we don’t want to see, is them framing an 8×10 and calling it “huge”.

The second struggle that I know many photographer’s face is getting consistent good sales. You have bills to pay and your time is valuable. When one sale rings up at $100.00 and the next rings up at $1,000.00, It’s pretty hard to plan a monthly budget.

Your personal Pricing Product Guide can be shared with clients as an online magazine or a PDF. So you can share a digital version with clients through your email correspondence.

In addition to sharing it as e-magazine, it can also be shared as a book! So when you get into that ordering appointment, you actually hand over this beautiful BOOK for your clients to peruse, and it happens to be identical to what they saw in your online version!

Product Guide Look Book
go4pro product book example

INCLUDED:
   ○ All product photography

   ○ Thirty pages, each can be customized for your brand / pricing
   ○ Fully layered PSD files with simple clipping masks
   ○ Instructions for creating your PDF
   ○ Instructions for preparing Pricing Product Guide as e-magazine
   ○ FAQ for ordering in book, magazine & digital magazine
   ○ Instructions for all fonts used
   ○ Information for all of the vendors showcased
   ○ Grey masks indicate clipping masks to drop your images

PRODUCT COMPATIBILITY:
This product has been designed and developed for professional photographers. A basic understanding of Photoshop clipping masks is expected. Compatible with all version of Photoshop CS.


Product Guide Look Book

Through Tuesday, November 27th all Paperie readers can get $50 off the Product Guide Look Book with the code PAPERIE50.

And scroll below for details on how one lucky Paperie reader can win it all!

We’re excited to have MOO.com back for another guest / vendor post and giveaway! One lucky Paperie winner will win a $75 gift card to MOO! And read ’til the end because we also have FREE Mother’s Day and Father’s Day templates up for download!

Moo business card logo
As blogged about here on Paperie, I recently had the chance to try MOO Luxe Business Cards. “Printed on Mohawk Superfine paper, Luxe Business Cards are the cashmere sweater of Business Cards – they look as good as they feel…At triple the thickness and weight of most ordinary cards, Luxe boasts a rich seam of colour within the layers of paper, and a stunning, tactile quality that you won’t find anywhere else on the web.

I’ve also used MOO standard, recycled and rounded-corner business cards for years. There’s just nothing like thickness and feel! And with MOO’s “Printfinity” you can print a different design or photograph on every single card in the pack! This is perfect for running seasonal promotions or if you shoot different styles of photography – you could print wedding, maternity, and newborn business cards in one pack.

And now Paperie readers in the U.S. have a chance to win $75 from Moo – all you have to do is visit Moo’s site and tell us what your favorite business card design is in the comments! You can find several examples to choose from here:

1. http://us.moo.com/design-templates/luxe/business-cards/
2. http://us.moo.com/design-templates/business-cards/


     Here are a few of my favorites:

Entrants may also get one additional “bonus” entry by posting a photo of your own MOO business cards to your Facebook account (and link to @moo.com in your post) -  or  - post a photo of your own MOO business cards to your Twitter account (and link to @overheardatmoo). Then come back to the comments here and post the link to your Facebook -  or  - Twitter entry so everyone can see. (These must be on a public Facebook or Twitter account so we can verify it’s there – if we have to register to see your entry, it is not public, and the entry will be voided.) Don’t forget to come back here and post the link to your shared post. That’s all there is to it!

This contest is open from Monday, May 7th – Sunday, May 13th (11:59 p.m. EDT) to residents in the U.S. You can enter up to TWO times total. Post that you have met the individual requirements in two separate comments here to have multiple chances to win!

You can enter / post up to two times total – one entry each for each option listed above. (PLEASE NOTE: Comments are held for moderation and may not appear immediately. Please be patient! They will show up eventually.)

You have TWO chances to win, but only one chance PER OPTION – please do not post the same link multiple times. Duplicate links will be removed. Each entry requires its own separate comment to have multiple chances to win! See official rules for more details.

Comments on this entry will be numbered in order of posting. The winning number will be chosen by Random.org, and the winner will be contacted within 48-72 hours of the winner-announcement to claim their prize.

Thanks to MOO.com for such a great contest! Good luck everyone!

Mother’s Day is rapidly approaching. If you need a quick last-minute gift (for clients or your own mum), don’t miss the FREE downloads we posted last year! Here’s an example of one mini-storyboard:

10x5 mom storyboard

And in plenty of time for Father’s Day, here are two FREE templates up for download. Both look the same – but one is designed to print as a 5×7 photograph collage. The other is designed to print as MOO postcards. With MOO’s “Printfinity” you can insert different images in each postcard, and make a customized “Happy Father’s Day” card for each of your clients!

Photoshop Layers
The images you insert should be 300 dpi – pixel dimensions needed are given in a layer you will hide.

button it’s better to give…

We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday! To show you how thankful we are for our Paperie readers, we’re offering up this free baby tee design for use at Zazzle – it would make the perfect client holiday gift!

Buttons and Bows Photography t shirt baby newborn infant Orlando Florida

UPDATE: The design has been updated for the year “2012“. You can now see how the shirts look when you get them from Zazzle here. Try finding a Zazzle coupon code at retailmenot.com before making your purchase!

You can either download the .psd file below and move things around to add your own logo — or if you prefer to just print the design as-is, use the Paperie Zazzle Store and choose between a baby onesie, an infant t-shirt, an infant organic creeper, or a baby long-sleeve tee in sizes 6, 12, 18, and 24 months.

  → download link ← (please note this file was designed in CS2 and you must have Photoshop or Elements and know how to edit a .psd layered file — I do not provide technical support for this download)

You can edit the background color in this .psd file and move layers around. However, you cannot edit the text as-shown or make changes to the graphic. If you choose to print the design with a vendor other than Zazzle please make sure to check the size and crop guidelines first! Paperie is not responsible for mis-prints.

If you prefer to print the shirt without a logo, or do not have the ability to edit .psd layers, you can order it directly from Zazzle here.

PLEASE MAKE SURE when ordering your shirt(s) that you use the Zazzle “Customize It!” tools (as shown below) to correctly place the “Santa baby / camera” graphic on the various designs / styles so the entire graphic appears and is centered! It will change size and placement depending on design selected and it is up to you to confirm proper placement on your item before ordering!

Zazzle customize it

Click the orange “Customize It!” button to get started and use controls shown. Make sure you also select the “Santa baby / camera” image in the “Customize It!” section because it will not move or resize until the image is selected to edit.

Here are the onesies I got from Zazzle for Christmas 2011 and they turned out so cute! I customized them for my Buttons and Bows Photography clients:

I added a smaller version of the Santa-camera with my URL on the t-shirt backs.

And here is a similar onesie that Buttons and Bows Photography gifted to clients in 2008. They were a HUGE hit!

button oh, Mr. Postman

A few days ago I linked FREE Moo holiday sticker and minicard template downloads for the holidays / Christmas. Moo asked me to create new 2011 templates for their sticker labels and round sticker lines. I was happy to oblige and I’m passing them on here as well!

Below you will find two FREE sticker label templates (one is a holiday-themed mailing label, the other a holiday themed gift label) and FREE coordinating round “postmark” stickers.

UPDATE: There are now separate links for U.S. and UK downloads for those of you who prefer the date (“25”) before the month (“12”) in the design postmark. The flag icons will help direct you to the download-version you prefer.
