. . . first, a few admin notes of importance . . .

Notice posted to Paperie Boutique’s Facebook late Wednesday night:



We have some bad news for everyone. There’s just no way we’re going to be able to finish up the 4th birthday celebration by the published date of (tomorrow) Thursday, July 25th. There are simply too many vendors and prizes left to be featured / awarded.

So it is with heavy hearts that we announce the party will continue for a few more days until everything has been published and won by our readers.

We know, we know. It’s a horrible situation but there’s just no other way around it. We have no other option but to let the celebration continue and force you to win more items over a longer period of time. First world problems, yo.

Party on, Paperie!

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.)

Here’s a product spotlight on one of the albums featured in my November Professional Photographer Magazine column—Little KISSes by KISS Books!

mini KISS album

mini KISS album

While some companies provide “brag books”, or small copies of a larger album, there aren’t many who allow you to purchase just the smaller book. KISS doesn’t limit their photographers! You can order the cute, 4×4″ Little KISSes for any occasion—without needing to order a larger book.

The Little KISSes can be ordered with leather or linen covers, and are photographically printed—which is infinitely superior to the standard, press-printed options most companies offer. They sport the same lay-flat binding, beautiful printing, and top-notch quality as their bigger siblings. Little KISSes are perfect for surprising your clients! What better way to say thanks than sending them a mini copy of their album that they keep in their purse? What better tool can you give her to show all her friends your work? Since Little KISSes are ordered and constructed in sets of 2, there’s a spare copy for mom or a wedding planner to carry as well.

The KISS System is the rejection of our option-obsessed world.

Design:
Create beautiful album layouts in minutes instead of hours with the revolutionary cloud-based Designer. Too busy? We’ll do it for you: Design for $49.

Share:
A click shares your album design on Facebook—or on your client’s wall. You can even share designs made in other apps. Clients can leave comments on each page of the slideshow so their changes are easy to understand.

Order:
After your clients approve their design online, you don’t export, or upload—just click the order button and you’re set.

Deliver:
The fit & finish, leather, printing, and packaging of a KISS Book will reflect your professionalism to your clients for a lifetime.

“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

button fall on me

Long time, no update! I’m still trying to figure out how to best effectively juggle my two boys & husband, my jobs, my health, and our new life in Georgia. Something had to give the last several weeks and unfortunately it’s been Paperie. We still update the Paperie Facebook page almost daily however, so if you’re looking for “Paperie Lite“, make sure to check there! Life is finally starting to find a groove again though and we’ll be back and better than ever as the holiday season approaches so please check back here at paperieboutique.com often as well!
