. . . first, a few admin notes of importance . . .

Notice posted to Paperie Boutique’s Facebook late Wednesday night:



We have some bad news for everyone. There’s just no way we’re going to be able to finish up the 4th birthday celebration by the published date of (tomorrow) Thursday, July 25th. There are simply too many vendors and prizes left to be featured / awarded.

So it is with heavy hearts that we announce the party will continue for a few more days until everything has been published and won by our readers.

We know, we know. It’s a horrible situation but there’s just no other way around it. We have no other option but to let the celebration continue and force you to win more items over a longer period of time. First world problems, yo.

Party on, Paperie!

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
   ○ Wall art examples (showcasing canvases, frames & large prints)
   ○ 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!

During our moving hiatus, we’ve had a few new advertisers join Paperie so please check the sidebars! Please help us welcome one – sweetkissesandcakes.com:

We are album designers who are passionate about designing wedding portraits and wedding albums. Recognizing that wedding pictures capture important occasions, full of memories and emotions, nothing gives us more joy than being allowed to use our design talents to add to the happiness of the wedded couples.

Our services are designed to help professional photographers with their design needs. Although our core services revolve around wedding pictures, we would love to be able to help you on other joyous occasions, such as engagement, sweet-sixteen, Bar Mitzvah, boudoir, family, and baby album.

Our commitment is to produce beautiful designs that tailored to your needs, budget, and taste. We are also giving free wedding album Templates for photoshop. They are also perfect for engagement, boudoir, baby and more:

Right out of the gate, our first entry for 2011 is nothing short of amazing! Check out this beautiful Entry #1 by Emily Crump Photography:

Emily Crump Wrap Battle Entry 1

This is my 2011 Holiday Mini Session packaging. I thought it was important this year to do something festive to get my client’s in the Christmas spirit as they received their Christmas cards and prints in the mail. Because everyone wants to feel like they are getting a present in the mail! It is a spinoff of my everyday packaging.

With each mini session the client received a CD with three digital files, three 8×10 prints and 50 custom Christmas cards. I also like to put a little special client gift in with each of my packages, so this year each client received a 3×3 ornament frame from The Organic Bloom with a photo from their session.

Vendors used:
• 8×10 photo boxes: HB Photo Packaging
• Kraft bags and wraphia: Michael’s
• Candy Christmas ornaments: Hobby Lobby
• Tissue paper: Paper Source
• 3×3 ornament frames: The Organic Bloom
• Custom logo sticker: 10 Candles Party Shop
