It’s been a long process, but I finally have all my packaging materials as I want them. I think I’ve been through about four or so logos since I started my business, not exactly the most professional thing. Now I understand why photographer’s recommend having your marketing in place before opening the doors, so to speak. In the end, I designed my logo myself. I am so satisfied with how it turned out. I wanted something that looked clean & simple, yet professional. Putting that logo into place with the business cards, discs & final packaging wasn’t necessarily hard, but it was time consuming, mostly because I wasn’t sure exactly how to turn my vision into a reality. Then it all came together.
I ordered the business cards & stickers through my photo printer. The eco-friendly disc sleeves came from another source. I then put those stickers on the sleeves. The discs & ‘permission to print’ cards came from yet another source. I then realized I had the perfect whole punch to finalize the package & tied the business card around with some very thin jute. When I put these packages together, I have to admit I get excited. It’s just such a pretty little piece, holding your photo treasures inside. But the most important part is opening up that (almost) final product & getting your images on your walls!
