We’re excited to have Sarah of Parisi Images back for another guest post here at Paperie! This time she’s sharing her in-home gallery space with our readers.

And make sure you read ’til the end because we have new birthday party info!


div line

Parisi Images logo

The actual space is a small (barely over 100 square feet) four-season porch attached to the back of the house. It offers just enough room to do what I love—invite a bride a groom over to share in some wine or coffee and spend the evening sharing our stories. If you meet with me, you’ll soon learn that the reason I photograph weddings is because I love stories…and I want you to see and to know that your story is beautiful, just the way it is. The design of the space is driven by the the idea of generous hospitality—the table—an old farmstand table painted white—holds center stage. Just like so many kitchen tables, it’s at the table where we get to know one another, where the sharing, the giving, the receiving all take place when you come for a visit.

For other photographers out there interested in what went into creating this space, you shouldn’t be surprised to learn that it all stems directly from my brand and packaging materials. One way to know if your branding is working for you is to see how well it translates into a variety of uses, purposes and spaces.

I initially planned to create a “living room” scene with a sofa and large-screen display. After a great deal of trial-and-error, I came to realize the space was just too small to provide ample room for a couch.

“Plan B” evolved into pairing down the furniture to absolute essentials—a table and seating. Using a bench on one side of the table offered enough seating for clients without filling the room with excess chairs and keeps the visual appeal of the space tight and tidy.

The room divider filled with images creates a small entryway, accented by a stool showcasing the circle emblem of my logo. (I personally love this touch!) Most of all, I intentionally filled the space with gallery wraps, large prints and sample albums, giving clients the ability to really envision ways they can make use of their own images.

Paperie is excited to feature an amazing two-part “packaging and presentation” series by Lindsay Alexander Photography! Please help us welcome Lindsay for this “Part II – Wedding Welcome Packetguest post. (You can view Lindsay’s first post “Part I – Packaginghere.)

Lindsay Alexander Photography

Hi, I’m Lindsay – a lifestyle and wedding photographer based in Fort Mill, South Carolina. After four years of business, I knew that I was ready for a change. When you own your own business and YOUR NAME is at the forefront of what you do, you want your product to be TRUE to who YOU are! Yes, I loved my old look . . . it was me THEN. I just wanted my new look to be ME NOW! I wanted everything to speak to the heart of why it is that I have this business in the first place and it took time and development as an artist and business owner to know that.

(Please click on each of the photographs below for a larger pop-up version. And visit Lindsay’s “Welcome Packet” post on her blog for a detailed explanation of each of the photos you see here.)

button stuck like glue

Here’s another bow tutorial – also designed to survive the pack’n’ship process!

You will need to have the following items on hand:

1.   Wide ribbon (1½” or wider)
2.   Thin ribbon (½” or wider – light wiring looks best)
3.   Accent ribbon (½” or wider – optional)
4.   Glue gun
5.   Xyron 150 “X” Create-a-Sticker Machine
6.   Jolee’s Boutique Santa Hats (optional)
7.   Jingle bells (optional)
8.   Christmas buttons (optional)
9.   Holiday floral picks
10. HB Photo Packaging 5×7″ boxes (wedding white & kraft)


holiday giftwrap presentation photography

First, take your widest ribbon and cut at 14″ long for a 5×7 (½” wide) box. Wrap around the box and hot glue the ends together. (I insert a postcard under the ribbon before gluing to make sure the box is not damaged.

holiday giftwrap photography

Next, take the thinner ribbon and also cut a 14″ piece. Run the ribbon, top side facing up, through the Xyron “X” Create-a-Sticker. (The Xyron machine allows you to take any embellishments – ribbon, paper, chipboard, etc. – up to 1½” wide and turn them into “stickers”.)

Once you have run the entire length of ribbon through the Xyron, tear off paper / ribbon / plastic covering from the machine. Before removing the plastic covering, press down on the entire length of ribbon to make sure the adhesive “sticks” to the back of the ribbon. Then carefully peel off the plastic covering. Your ribbon will be adhered to the “sticker paper” and is ready to be removed. Essentially you have just created “ribbon tape”.

holiday giftwrap photography

Determine the center of your ribbon tape and turn the photo box over, starting on the back. Center the ribbon tape from top-to-bottom and place on top of the wider ribbon, slowly and carefully wrapping it around the box. Go slow and keep it even! Turn the photo box back over and seal ends together on the top / center.

holiday giftwrap photography

Now it’s time to start on the bow! Take your thinner ribbon and cut three additional strips – one 8″ long, one 6″ long, and one 4″ long. If using a separate accent ribbon as shown, cut that length 2½” long. You can also opt to make the entire bow with the same ribbon, and you would cut a fourth strip 2½” long.

Use your hot glue gun to join the ends of each individual ribbon strip, making a “ring”. Flatten the ribbon-rings (in the 8″, 6″, and 4″ sizes), seam side down, and put one small dot of hot glue in the inside-center of the ring and press together – essentially forming a “figure 8”.

holiday giftwrap packages photography

Take the 8″ strip (now in a flat-8 shape) and put a dot of hot glue on the top center. Center the 6″ strip (now in a flat-8 shape) and press together. Put a dot of hot glue on the top center. Then center the 4″ strip (now in a flat-8 shape) and press together. Put a dot of hot glue on the top center. You will now press the smallest 2½” ribbon loop on the top-center of the bow.

I chose to hot glue a jingle bell in the center of the top loop on the bow (as shown). You could also use buttons, peppermints, mini candy canes, or scrapbooking embellishments.

Finally run a 2″ line of hot glue along the thin ribbon on the top center of your photo box. Center your bow and press. Remove the postcard once the glue has dried. If using wired ribbon, you can now “fluff” the loops on the bow. Voilà!

holiday giftwrap photography

For this box, I cut the end off of a Jolee’s Boutique Santa Hat, making it into a “planter”. Before I hot glued the bow on, I hot glued a red berry floral pick underneath. I put a couple of pieces of craft-moss in the “planter” with the red berry “tree” attached inside the hat-planter (under the moss) – carefully using hot glue to adhere all of the pieces.

holiday giftwrapping photography presentation

For this box, I hot glued a Christmas button in the bottom right corner, and then attached a Jolee’s Boutique Santa Hat on top. My business name is “Buttons and Bows Photography” so this incorporates both elements of that name.

Check out Shelly’s Buttons and More for more package-decoration inspiration! A few of my favorite items are the gingerbread men, holly buttons, snowflakes, and Christmas lights.

button all this—or a mocha frappuccino?

From Black Friday through Cyber Monday (November 26 at 11:59 p.m. EST) the ENTIRE Fit to Print store is on sale again for just $5 – including templates available exclusively here at Paperie Boutique!

Fit to Print photographer marketing templates
The last time we ran this special sale on Paperie was in December 2011!

-¤- -¤- -¤- -¤- -¤- -¤--¤- -¤- -¤- -¤- -¤- -¤- -¤-

First up, you’ll receive my “Portrait Care Card” and my “Product Guarantee Card” – wording included. These are designed to be printed through WHCC as 5×5 and 4×5 prints.

Included as well are my Referral Program Card, a Referral Program Wallet-Handout, and Referral Program Terms for your website – all with wording included. The first two are designed to be printed through WHCC as 5×5 and wallet prints. The website file is designed to upload to your website so clients and prospective clients can read the full terms of your referral program.

Paperie bonus prizes

referral program

I adhere the 5×5 print to a Paper Source petal envelope, and then adhere a group of wallet-handouts (held together with a bow) to the 5×5 print as shown above. I seal the petal envelope with a 1.5″ circle sticker from Zazzle – you can find a FREE template download for this sticker on Paperie here.

These five layered, editable .psd files are everything you need for a referral and print care / customer satisfaction program. The highly-sought-after templates have never been available for purchase outside of this annual sale!

-¤- -¤- -¤- -¤- -¤- -¤--¤- -¤- -¤- -¤- -¤- -¤- -¤-

This special sale also includes my 10-panel pano Client Welcome Kit.

pano welcome kit

Wording is not included. (I suggest this product from “Wordsmith” for that.) However, section-title suggestions are included (and can be easily altered). Text layout is also carefully structured to flow seamlessly around the images in the design. You will replace the “filler” text with your own words, and when you paste your text into place, it will be auto-formatted to stay in place within the design. (One small section of text is provided in section two of the back panel – it discusses model releases and print credit use. This text can be kept if desired or replaced with your own.)

I will also include the vendor of the envelopes I use for the business card panel – the final panel on the back is designed to have an envelope holding business cards attached to the panel, with your e-mail address to request more business cards printed on the actual card below.

All colors can be changed with a click of the button in Photoshop. (This is a layered .psd design created in Photoshop CS2 and should work in Elements, but I cannot provide technical support for Elements purchases.)

I have my welcome kit cards printed at Miller’s Professional Imaging.

BONUS: The $5 special includes FIVE storyboard template designs that are normally not for sale. Quotes cannot be changed (but layer can be hidden / replaced). The background layer color can be changed for each design.

Three designs are 20×10″ full-storyboard designs, one is a 10×5″ mini-storyboard design, and one storyboard design makes a perfect “grandparent gift” to tuck in orders at 5×3.5″.

BONUS: You will also receive my Press-Printed Card Supplement Packet and press-card print release.

announcement pack

These were designed to compliment the Design Aglow “Essential Birth Announcement Worksheet“. Even if you’re not a newborn photographer, if you sell press-printed cards, this product is for you!

Included here are additional birth announcement quotes and religious phrases I have collected, and the press-card print release form I have created, during my six-plus years of being a newborn photographer.

This makes a stunning presentation to your clients, and also makes their ordering much easier, sparing you both countless time spent back-and-forth during the design process.

This download includes three pages of additional quotes and phrases – plus religious quotes / scriptures – for baby boys, baby girls, and seasonal / holiday-themed birth announcements (Valentine’s, St. Patrick’s, Fourth of July, fall / autumn, Thanksgiving, and Christmas). And a one-page release for your clients (see below) saving you from expensive reprint costs due to their errors, omissions, or typos on press-printed cards.

additional girl boy birth announcement quotes

shown above – Baby Girl Quotes (left) / Baby Boy Quotes (right)

Announcement Card Signoff and Holiday Quotes
shown above – Press Card Release (left) / Holiday & Seasonal Quotes (right)

My “Press Printed Card Release” (shown below) does include the wording.

This is a form I make all of my clients read and sign off on before their cards and announcements go to print. It eliminates reprints at my expense for their misspellings, typos, and failure to include information. Once this form is signed off on, the customer is liable for the cards or announcements as they approved them (unless the error is a print lab defect or I failed to order the cards as they were approved, for instance if I accidentally submitted the lo-res version for print).

Announcement and Press Printed Card Client Signoff Print App

If you’ve ever been burned with the reprint of an expensive card order – this form is for you! And if you haven’t, you need this now before it happens!

This form wording will work for birth announcements and / or any kind of press-printed card you sell (Christmas / holiday card, birthday invitation, wedding announcement, graduation announcement, etc.)

I use the “Press Printed Card Release” text in an online web form that my customers sign off on digitally. You can print and use the text as presented if you do ordering in person, or convert it for online or e-mail use.

These forms are bare-bones to work within the template by Design Aglow (which I highly recommend purchasing). The one .psd file is divided into four folders of text. The only graphic included is a division line. There are no additional graphics or design-elements. Just the text, ma’am! If you choose to use them as a stand-alone product rather than a supplement, space has been left at the top to add your logo / letterhead to each of the pages.
