One week and counting and the birthday party is still in full swing! In case you missed the announcement, we’ve received so many prize donations that we’re keeping this thing going ’til the very last giveaway has been awarded – so check back today and all weekend long for more giveaways, pop-quiz instant winners, and flash giveaways on Facebook!

Right now we have an amazing prize pack combo from Prevealthe iPad Sales Tool for Photographers, The Search Engine Cookbook for Photographers by Zach Prez, and a “Full Demo Pack” from “The Shop” at AMSW Photography. This is a prize package worth over $230.00!


preveal

From The Business of Awesomebusinessofawesome.com:

Preveal brings the power of showing your clients their images on their walls to your iPad. With easy step-by-step instructions, your clients gather photographs of the places in their home that they would like wall art (or you go to their home and take the photos for them), and you can then show your clients exactly how the photographs will look in their home. You can show them a variety of wall gallery collections as well as showing them how single large outwork pieces will look. Ever had that client that wondered if an 8×10 print would look great over their fireplace? Now you can show them that it is too small, and what size will be more appropriate.

To go along with Preveal, make sure you get a copy of Design Aglow’s free guide for clients to photograph their home for the wall displays. The educational guide ‘teaches your clients how to take a well composed, properly scaled image of their home’s future wall gallery location‘.”



SEO Cookbook

The Search Engine Cookbook for Photographers
Easy Recipes to Rank Higher” by Zach Prez will help you:

         •  Get more clients
         •  Attract the right clients
         •  Charge the fees you deserve
         •  Scale back paid marketing activities
         •  Look like you’re the best in your area
         •  Build a client base that can generate referral business

“My process for teaching is very much like a chef sharing a recipe. I simple tell you what you need and how to put it all together. So I came up with a cookbook model with tools, ingredients, and recipes to rank you well. You’re going to love it!” –Zach Prez

WOW! This is THE guide to understanding and implementing SEO. My favorite part are the recipes provided. 115 pages of holding my hand and literally spoon-feeding me the information. It was refreshing to be able to sit and learn without having to supplement with other sources. I strongly recommend this for business owners that are lacking on the SEO and web presence. After this book SEO will be a cakewalk!” -Rachel Brenke, The Law Tog



amsw demo pack

“The Shop” at AMSW Photography‘s “Full Demo Pack” includes:

1.  Cloud Overlay in “Puffy Heart”
2.  Color Texture in “Yellow and Orange”
3.  Lightroom Presets 4 & 5 in “Dark Pastels Sampler”

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

   ○ Information for all of the vendors showcased
   ○ Grey masks indicate clipping masks to drop your images

PRODUCT COMPATIBILITY:

There’s a great Q&A going on over at the Paperie Facebook page:

I’m ALWAYS at a loss for packaging LARGE prints and I’ve followed you for a long time but can’t seem to find much highlighted with that…wondered if you could share or ask for people to share how they package wall prints sometime? Every idea I’ve found is really not affordable. Would love help doing that as it’s most of what I sell.

Anyone have ideas or a vendor / product recommendation? Thanks!

Happy 2nd birthday to Paperie Boutique!
Visit PaperieBirthday.com for all events!
paperie 2nd birthday
Winner announcements started on Monday, July 25th…



The title from the last giveaway (#31) is the French translation of “My Way” – I thought the lyrics quite appropriate for what turned out to be an 8-day event! I also have a special connection to the song. It is one of my first memories as a child, and I could not have been more than 4 years old at the time. I remember walking up to the counter at TG&Y with a 45-record of the song, and plopping down my ‘hard-earned’ allowance on the counter. I felt so big and so proud at the time, and now it just makes me giggle (as I’m sure my family did watching me). No Bay City Rollers for me! Even at an early age, it seems I always overshot my mark and did it “my way“! But now that I’ve lost 75% of my audience with Sinatra, Bay City Rollers, TG&Y, and 45-record references…before you can all run off to Google to figure out what in the world I’m rambling on about after a week of sleep-deprivation…I’ll just say, “And now, the end is near“…and we’ll move on to the fun stuff! PRIZES!

In a week that’s seen over $8200 in prizes donated (that averages out to over $1000 / day!), you didn’t think we’d go out any other way than with a “BANG!“, did you? In our final giveaway – #32 – one lucky Paperie reader will win a prize pack from WHCC, HB Photo Packaging, and Kaleidoscope!

WHCC float wrap giveaway Paperie Boutique

WHCC float wrap giveaway Paperie Boutique

WHCC Float Wraps are a new, unique option to display images. Float Wraps are similar to Gallery Wraps or Standout mounted prints in that they add dimension by extending out from the wall. Float wraps are unique in that they appear to be floating on the wall with the main focus on the image! Create a modern display with a Float Wrap wall collage that is ready to hang once removed from the box!”

Included in this prize pack is a 16×20 float wrap with laminate in your choice of lustre or metallic photographic paper, or as a fine art or metallic canvas.

HB Photo Packaging birthday giveaway Paperie Boutique

Also included in this prize pack is a “Boudoir Collection” sampler by HB Photo Packaging. (I recently featured the “Boudoir Collection” products in the June 2011 issue of Professional Photographer Magazine.) You will receive five large “Eco Totes” in black, ten small “Eco Totes” in black, five 8×10 boxes in “Razzle Berry“, five 5×7 boxes in “Razzle Berry“, five 8×10 boxes in “Black Velvet“, five 5×7 boxes in “Black Velvet“, ten 8×10 tissue folds in “(hot) pink”, ten 5×7 tissue folds in “(hot) pink” and “polka dot”, three rolls of “Bella Terra” paper ribbon (Black, Beauty, and Zebra), a “Hot Pink Tiger” ribbon sample, and ten assorted black “stretch bows“.

And last but certainly not least…

Presenting a vendor / guest post and giveaway from Patti Brown Photography, LLC and Kaleidoscope. Up for grabs are FIVE $100 gift cards!

I’m so pleased to announce the arrival of Kaleidoscope‘s two newest digital darlings: “Imagine” & “Eternal“. Each is a mini-texture set, designed with color, glow, movement, grit…and of course, the quality & artistic flair that all Kaleidoscope products are known for! Like all of my products, each texture set is fully compatible with all versions of Photoshop – including Elements. “Imagine” & “Eternal” have been receiving RAVE reviews, and truly have the ability to take your pictures to places that actions alone simply cannot! Check out the amazing Before & After’s in the slideshow found here.

However, the very best part of my latest digital lovelies, is their teeny tiny price! Each set is just $29, bundled together for a limited time for just $49. And, through July 14th, with the coupon code paperie you can get an additional 25% off of your entire cart!

For a quick video demo, click here. (Demo is in CS.) For a fun tutorial on how I achieved the “Angel Glow” method mentioned in Elements, click here.

For all the details, purchase info, and additional Photoshop & photography tutorials, visit my blog at pattibrownblog.com.
