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

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.

First up today is a guest post on custom ink stamps by Lizvette Wreath!

lizvette rubber stamps

“After thinking of ways to keep my costs low I came across the idea of custom rubber stamps. I bought these at rubberstamps.net – they have free shipping when you spend $20! What I like the most is that I can stamp almost everything (thank you cards, hello notes, welcome packets, small goodie bags, small canvas totes…). I purchased the stamp ink at Michael’s, they have a great variety of colors that can match almost any type of branding. Cute, right?” –Lizvette Wreath

Recently Karen Leslie told me about a fun “client gift” by Image3D – they sell old-school style view-masters with reels you can customize using your own photos. I recently received a sample to review, and I’m hooked!


Image3D

“If you’ve picked up an original View-Master in the last few decades, chances are the images were shot by one man. Rich Dubnow (a.k.a. the Most Experienced 3D Photographer in the World) was lead photographer at View-Master for twenty years producing work for creative visionaries like Jim Henson and Steven Spielberg.

In 1997, Rich founded Image3D in the picturesque Pacific Northwest. Since then, Image3D has grown from a kitchen table operation to a state-of-the-art facility producing custom-made 3D experiences for everyone from blushing brides to corporate titans.”


image 3D view finder

Building a customized reel super easy. All you have to do is upload your digital photos, edit, then add 3D captions. (You can also use their stereo reel builder if you want to submit 3D images.) Your order will be on your doorstep in just days. One set (reel, viewer and box) runs $24.95, and bulk discounts are available.

So if you’re looking for a unique client holiday gift this year, or just want to add a fun new product to your senior or wedding lines, check out Image3D!
