One of the biggest perks of my job is the “sneak-peeks”. I’m excited to share what I recently received from Black River Imaging!

black river demos

click photo above for a larger pop-up version


They announce… Black River Imaging just introduced their super-stylish Specialty Shaped Metal Prints in 7 sizes and 30 silhouettes.

Inspired by French flea market mirrors and vintage signs, Specialty Shaped Metal Prints blend the modernity of metal with Old World charm.

You choose the surface type that suits your style: Vibrant produces crisp detail and rich colors; subtle color gradations become dream-like with Metallic Fade. Each print is finished in gloss or matte.

black river demos

Metal prints are lightweight and easy to clean. They are made from 100% recycled aluminum. You can mount them easily with an optional float block (for sizes larger than 5” square) or opt for drill holes to thread your favorite ribbon or chain.

For an eclectic look, try a cluster in various shapes and sizes on a client’s wall or mantlepiece. Or hot-glue atop a fabric-covered clamshell box for an exquisite wedding memory keeper.

Specialty Shaped Metal Prints from Black River Imaging
• 30 designs, 7 sizes from 5” to 45”
• Eco-friendly 100% recycled aluminum
• Two surfaces and finishes: Vibrant or Metallic Fade surface,
  Gloss or Matte finish
• Mounting options: float block; drill holes for your own ribbon or chain
• 3-5 business day turnaround time

For more information, please visit the Black River Imaging website.

button drop it like it’s hot

First up before the big giveaway (yes I said “big giveaway” so read ’til the end), I have a FREE download. To celebrate surviving the year being half-over I recently made mini-calendars for my clients. I had them printed as folded bookmarks from ProDPI, and they look fantastic if I do say so myself.

mini calendar inside

mini calendar inside

You’ll have to come up with the front and back design (I used a business card front/back for mine), but I’ve attached a download for the inside-spread that includes the calendar. I have included the crop-guide layer. You’ll have to add your logo if desired and the month names, calendar dates, and month box background colors are not customizable (unless you delete the layers and add your own in their places) – but the background color and bar-stripe are easily changed with the click of the mouse.

inside calendar example

color change
The white background color can be changed with one click as shown in the Photoshop background color fill layer in the Layers Palette. The text for the month names, the date text, and the box backgrounds for each month cannot be changed. However, the top stripe CAN be changed and your logo can be added using the included lab crop-guide for ProDPI.

And now as promised…the big giveaway by Heather Green of The Drop Shoppe! Heather has stopped by for today’s guest post

The Drop Shoppe

The Drop Shoppe (thedropshoppe.com) sells thick, matte, high quality vinyl backdrops in large sizes that are affordable for photographers. You can use these with studio lighting or natural light. Each image is created in Photoshop or Illustrator to be the absolute sharpest possible when it’s printed in large format. Currently we sell two sizes; 5 feet by 8 feet and 10 feet by 8 feet. The 5’x8′ drops are $90.00 and the 10’x8′ drops are $150.00 All prices include free shipping to the continental United States. If you are out of the country you do have to pay shipping, but we work hard to find you the fastest and most affordable shipping solution. Each backdrop has an extra 1/2″ white border around the outside, which is perfect for you to clamp to your backdrop stand. This way you’re not clamping directly onto the backdrop image.

drop clamp - The Drop Shoppe

Here we have a simple set up of hooks screwed into the wall, a metal pole and three large clamps holding the backdrop.

The Drop Shoppe

There’s a variety of ways to hang these backdrops. You can just clamp them to your horizontal pole on your backdrop stand (with large clamps you can purchase at a hardware store), or you can hang hooks on your wall with a pole and clamp to that. We used the hooks/wall method in our small office since we couldn’t fit my larger backdrop stand in there. A quick Google search will also turn up quite a few do it yourself backdrop stands that you’re able to make at home for very little cash.

We have all sorts of patterns and styles for you to choose from. There’s plenty of grunge, messy paint, realistic background photos, wallpaper, doors, floors and much more. The possibilities for these backdrops are endless. Use them in your studio, use one for the popular ‘photo booth’ set ups at weddings, even hang them outside for big parties or family get togethers. The backdrops arrive in a shipping tube, which we ask you to keep so that you can store your backdrop in it when not in use. The best ways to store these are either rolled up, hanging or laying flat. If you should wrinkle them, usually laying them flat in a hot room or outside in the shade will remove the wrinkles. These also wipe clean with mild soap and water. No worries about that baby or toddler making a mess, just wipe it up!

I’ve also included a size chart for the 5’x8′ drops, showing the size of an adult woman and the size of our backdrops – a good way to show how big these drops really are:

The Drop Shoppe model example

Here’s an example of our backdrops in use! The following photo was taken by Holly McCaig with our Aged Red Doors backdrop.

Another backdrop photo by Chrissy Avila.

Chrissy Avila backdrop

The backdrop I want to give away here on Paperie Boutique today is our Aged Copper Wall, sized 5’x8′. It’s one of my favorites and works well when shooting just about any subject…from kids to women to men.

Aged Copper Wall backdrop

Here’s a few sample photos taken with that Aged Copper Wall backdrop – first by Chrissy Avila Photography:

And one by me using more of a cross processed/vintage technique:

The Drop Shoppe - Aged Copper Wall

Winner will receive one Aged Copper Wall size 5 feet by 8 feet backdrop with additional 1/2″ white border around it. Backdrops do not come with any kind of rods, clamps or pockets to hang them – you must supply your own way to hang it up. Backdrop will be shipped to the winner 3-7 days after the contest ends.

There are three different ways to enter between now and 11:59 p.m. on Friday, July 9th – each entry requires its own separate comment:

1. ‘like’ The Drop Shoppe on Facebook, come back and post here that you did so

2. post on Twitter (then leave the link here):
I entered to win an Aged Copper Wall backdrop at paperieboutique.com by @shutterblog from The Drop Shoppe/ thedropshoppe.com/store

3. leave a comment here on the blog about what your favorite backdrop is from the shop (thedropshoppe.com/store)

UPDATE The winner has now been posted here – check it out!

And last but not least…everyone gets $5 off their purchase from The Drop Shoppe by using the code paperie at checkout!

Huge thanks to Heather and The Drop Shoppe for such a fantastic prize giveaway! Head to Facebook and tell them thanks ‘in person’!

And to celebrate the P2C debut on Paperie Boutique, they are giving away the following prize:

P2C sample set

The “sample set” prize includes…
Gallery Wrap Canvas – Your image is printed on canvas and stretched over deep gallery stretcher bars. These bars have a depth of 1.5 inches and allow the piece to be hung directly on the wall without a frame. Every canvas is covered across the back with Tyvek with hardware to hang the canvas already installed.
Chromaluxe Panel – Custom made panels that have the clean look of a mounted print with no need for a frame.
Aluminum Panel w/ Ice Block Stand – These aren’t metal prints. They’re aluminum panels with a poly-resin coating. The coating is clear, so when it bonds with the ink you can see the metal shine through which gives it a wicked 3-D look. Ice Block Stands give your customer the option to display the metals on a desk or table with a sleek, modern stand – which also allows you to add your logo to the back of the metal and it will be seen. (Check out the P2C blog for more photos!)

Hey, did you notice I said “prizes” up there? As in…plural. You read that correctly! Roxanne reopened the prize vault and is offering a 20×24 Gallery Wrap Canvas to the first person to post her birthday in the comments of this entry. Fire up Google (and please leave a valid e-mail address so I can contact you)!


UPDATE: 20×24 “birthday prize” was gone within minutes of this entry going up. It’s no longer up for grabs. But you still have all weekend to win the “sample set”!
