button in another dimension

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

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!

button Have a BOO-tiful day!

Happy Halloween! Today we have a treat instead of a trick for you – a giveaway and vendor/guest post by one of our new multi-advertisers Rice Studio Supply!

Good for your prints… Good for the environment!

Rice Studio Supply presents their new Artisan Portrait case.


rice studio supply

While traveling in India, Scott Rice visited a village where the art of paper making has been practiced since 1590. Handmade paper is crafted from 100% recycled cotton fiber. The stock is acid free, archival quality, and simply beautiful. Scott knew this was the answer to your requests for stylish photo packaging that is safe for photos and safe for the environment.

eco chic Rice Studio Supply

The Artisan Portrait Case is an eco-friendly presentation package with natural deckle edges. The paper is handmade one sheet at a time, using natural products, so no two deckle edges are identical. The deep cocoa color is available in 5×7, 8×10, 8×12, 11×14, and 16×20 sizes. Rice Studio Supply will sell these handmade products from eco-friendly paper at the same cost as mass produced wood pulp papers.

eco chic Rice Studio Supply

For one week from the date of this post, Paperie readers can order the new Artisan Portrait Case at the 500-quantity price, regardless of how many you order (that’s a 30% discount off the each price). Shipment will begin the first week of November.

Happy 2nd birthday to Paperie Boutique!
Visit PaperieBirthday.com for all events!

paperie 2nd birthday

paperie two year stats Paperie Boutique started on July 18, 2009, with this simple little post:

“Welcome to the new Paperie Boutique blog. This is an expansion on my popular “Fit to Print” set on Flickr where I have shared 3 years worth of new products, marketing materials, packaging, and how-to assembly demos for professional photographers…”

I never dreamed that in just two short years we’d have crossed the 1-million visitors milestone and have over 10,000 comments. Nevermind that just under a year after launch that we’d be featured in Rangefinder Magazine and I’d start writing for Professional Photographer Magazine (eventually being promoted to technical, then contributing editor and also tapped to write for the “Web Exclusives” section of the website).

There are so many people who have made this all possible – and without them, there never would have been a Paperie Boutique. First and foremost my amazing husband Todd who buckled up in his computer chair and learned his job on the fly. For over a year he has been handling most of the backend of the website communications and advertising. I would never be able to get through the volume of e-mail we receive without him! Stacy for taking this blog design’s code out back, showing it who’s boss, and keeping things afloat over on the technical side. And Hosting Matters, our host of almost 10 years now, for supplying the bandwidth and dedicated server space that makes it possible for us to stay online.

I also need to thank our loyal vendors who have kept the site stocked with amazing content in addition to supplying countless prizes and giveaways. They not only keep you coming back, but wanting “more! more! more!” This has been a place to share, showcase, window-shop, and educate. And then last but certainly not least, our loyal readers who have patiently stood by during the health-hiccups I’ve had along the way, and always came back to help us plow forward. You have always been there to teach and inspire, to “pay it forward” to your fellow peers, and you make this all worth it every day / week / month / year.

We can’t wait to see what the next year has in store!

And many more…
Robyn & Todd

P.S. More giveaways will be posted tonight. Keep refreshing the page!

We have another new advertiser we’re excited to welcome into the Paperie family: Handmade Paper Album Boxes by Leah Gibbons Photography.

All boxes are quality made, sturdy & archival safe (acid and lignin free). Offered in two very versatile colors, they have a gorgeous natural look, and are earth-friendly!

The boxes are made with all handmade and eco-friendly papers, recycled board and organic glues. They are strong, heavy weight and perfect for book & album packaging.

A Little Info On The New Amazon Collection:

A textured handmade paper produced with a mixture of wild grass and hemp materials is the essential element of Amazon. Featuring a hand carved coconut accent that is perfectly woven into the beautiful paper. A hidden tab locks the flap in place to prevent any opening, but also maintain a simplistic look. Amazon features a full faced media tray made from corn starch and water that allows the case to remain light in weight but also secure.

There’s no better feeling than helping someone become successful on the web and grow his or her business. Okay, maybe there are a few things better, like cycling on the American River Bike trail near Sacramento, CA.



Photographer SEO Book I wrote Photographers SEO Book almost 2 years ago now. What started as some informal phone conversations with my photographer friend quickly expanded into ninja tactics that boomed her business from Google in a matter of weeks. Everyone wanted to know her secret, so I turned those conversations into a non-technical how to guide that any level of photographer can follow. It has since helped hundreds of people understand and improve in search results.



Blog SEO Zen Earlier this year I released Photography Blog SEO Zen. It’s an ebook for photographers, designers, or wedding vendors on how to update your blog infrastructure and write blog posts to rank more easily. Blogs typically output many more pages than a traditional website, meaning more chances to rank in search. Blogs are especially helpful in ranking very specific phrases (long-tail SEO) so I would hope you see about 3x the traffic from your blog compared to your photography website. My blogs and ebook help you get there.



Photographers SEO eClass I’m giving away one of each product above for Paperie Boutique readers. Enter to win by commenting on any blog post on either of my websites – photographers-seo.comORphotoblogseo.com – by the end of the day on Saturday. (We’ll notify and announce the winners on Monday.) You’ll learn something new and hopefully share your thoughts about the post, what you learned, or something insightful.

button things are going to start
     happening to me now

A few weeks ago I Tweeted about a very special secret project I was invited to be a part of, and how it was finally underway. Now I can give you a little peek into the end-results! There is a lot more on the way, but for now, a teaser if you will…..

HB Photo Logo

HB Photo Packaging recently launched a packaging design-it-yourself line called “Print Your Own“. They invited me to be a part of a packaging design test project, and I truly believe (*crossing fingers”) it’s going to take off like wildfire as the plans for it continue to develop.

I mean, look at the photos – and the quality – below! How can it not?

The images shown above are of my “Classic Stripes & Solids Collection” — box sizes shown are 11×14, 8×10, and 5×7. The Buttons and Bows Photography logos and button icons on the bottom-right of the boxes are NOT stickers. They are actually printed on the boxes!

These next two photos are of the custom CD / DVD cases in the “Classic Stripes & Solids Collection”. I cannot describe how fantastic these look in person! My clients are going to flip!

These next two photos are of the “Dots and Stripes Collection”. I think these will be great for newborn photography packaging. I can go from ‘classic’ to ‘whimsical’ whenever the mood strikes.

To see larger images of the “Classic Stripes & Solids Collection” and the “Dots and Stripes Collection” head on over to Flickr…

Print Your Own” is now offering a more economical option as well — you can still design custom box tops, but use their regular line of stock box colors instead on the bottom.

You also might remember that a few weeks back HB asked Paperie readers to suggest new colors for their Boutique Color Line.

I’m excited to announce that four five new colors have been added to the lineup – Razzle Berry, Orange Fiz, Lemon Drop, Lime Green, and Titanium. You can also finally purchase the Aqua / Aqua combo! (Check out the Boutique Color Line for more sizes and colors.) And if you don’t see the size of box you want with the new colors, hang tight — more are on the way!

Plans are in the works for coupons and packaging-set giveaways for Paperie readers from HB, so stay tuned!

And don’t forget, just a few more hours to win a $200 gift certificate from Sassy Designs!

Have a great weekend —
Robyn
