Customized Packaging for your photography business


packaging for photographers

Ever wondered, "How do I package a professional photo?"

Why I offer this packaging

When I finally got an identity I liked, I agonized over the packaging.

What do I need?

What would my clients love?

How should I package my albums, prints and boxes?

What do people expect?

A hundred hours later, I created a collection of support materials that any new photographer could use.

While you could go to Marathon Press for beautiful, custom materials, I promise you'll spend five or six times as much. This collateral set lets you customize your core components and, of course, the hang tags and business cards are distinctly yours.

One of the big money-savers in this package is the self-printing stickers.

All you need is a high quality inkjet printer. And what photographer doesn't have two or three of these?

How it works

Choose which packaging route you'd like to go and make the online payment.

Send us your logo.

My designer picks your primary and supporting colors.

We design your hang tags, rubber stamp, stickers, etc.

We'll send you a color strip like the one just below, and your design proofs.

You get to make one design change for free; others cost $35 per change.

Once you're happy, stuff will start arriving within a couple of days of your final approval.

No hidden charges, no hidden ANYTHING


There are no hidden charges, no secret charges, no hidden billing and nothing else that you'll get sucked into that you didn't expect.

In fact, after the first time you order, you are welcome to re-order from the manufacturers directly.
