By now you know I love the details & it's something I want reflected in my photography packaging. I take pride in offering my clients quality products from prestigious NZ suppliers and I want to present these products in a way that showcases them.
I am very lucky to work with a fantastic graphic designer & friend; Carmel of The Avenue Design Studio for my stationery needs. Carmel has great vision and a way of bringing to life exactly what I wanted but didn't know at the time. This season my stationery set has been simplified and unified. Besides my business card I also have square thank you cards so I can handwrite notes to my clients.
I carry my business logo through all my stationery & packaging. And you may wonder why I choose to use a relatively plain font & style for my logo, no fancy swirls or icons. Truthfully I've had a few logos designed but I can just never decide on one. Instead I have grown to love the simplicity of my logo & that while it brands my work, it doesn't detract from it.
Even my USBs are branded and now they also tie in with my new season wedding packaging. Made-to-order custom wooden boxes from The Wooden Box Co in Alexandra. They even set up a branding iron with my logo so each box has it branded into the lid.
My professional prints go to clients in a branded folio with a care-card explaining tips for looking after & getting the maximum enjoyment from these prints.
I love packaging up client orders with care and love. While you may say it's only a bit of packaging, to me it's a reflection of my brand and it's about creating the best experience I can for my clients.
I was recently lucky enough to collaborate with a handful of local wedding vendors to put together a styled bridal shoot and Carmel has made us up some beautiful promo cards with the photos.
As I took these photos the other day a sense of accomplishment washed over me. To think how I first packaged my products for clients, to where I have got to today. It is all thanks to everyone that has supported me and my business as I have grown, so to you I say THANK YOU.xxx
