Right out of the gate, our first entry for 2011 is nothing short of amazing! Check out this beautiful Entry #1 by Emily Crump Photography:

Emily Crump Wrap Battle Entry 1

This is my 2011 Holiday Mini Session packaging. I thought it was important this year to do something festive to get my client’s in the Christmas spirit as they received their Christmas cards and prints in the mail. Because everyone wants to feel like they are getting a present in the mail! It is a spinoff of my everyday packaging.

With each mini session the client received a CD with three digital files, three 8×10 prints and 50 custom Christmas cards. I also like to put a little special client gift in with each of my packages, so this year each client received a 3×3 ornament frame from The Organic Bloom with a photo from their session.

Vendors used:
• 8×10 photo boxes: HB Photo Packaging
• Kraft bags and wraphia: Michael’s
• Candy Christmas ornaments: Hobby Lobby
• Tissue paper: Paper Source
• 3×3 ornament frames: The Organic Bloom
• Custom logo sticker: 10 Candles Party Shop

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!

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.

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.
