TCB Tuesday :: Packaging
Whew. Wedding season is slowing down now. I have a few weeks off & in that time will be sending off images to the wonderful planners & vendors who were part of these weddings with me. I've been working on refining my packaging for quite awhile - wanting to find a way to create a pretty package, but keep the costs to a minimum (not easy for me..little spender).
After reading an article in Professional Photographer magazine I was inspired to use these square envelopes by Paper Presentation (thanks Chenin Boutwell!). They are the perfect size for discs & come in so many great colors. I chose two colors that coordinate with my brand, finished it off with baker's twine, a business card and a handwritten note on my custom stationery.
I still remember my first "big girl" purchase (ha. at Banana Republic). I was so enamored with how they wrapped the clothes in tissue paper and sealed it with a little round sticker. Thus began my appreciation for the finer things in life : ) Hopefully this is a mini-version of that experience for my clients.
P.S. I love the idea of "columns" within blogs. Little segments with creative names that are posted on the same day every week. Thinkin' about starting some here, hence TCB Tuesdays. Takin' Care of Business...where I'll share little things about business that I've learned & might be helpful to some of you. Yes? Maybe? Let me know!
