How do you package and present your work to clients? Does your packaging look professional? Does it represent you and the quality of your work? Does your photo packaging set you apart from your competitors? These are all important questions to consider when evaluating your photo packaging. And believe it or not, your clients will be asking themselves these questions too. They will be forming opinions and evaluating your work based on what you present to them. That’s why packaging your products is key to establishing your brand and developing your reputation as a professional photographer.
Choosing the right packaging for your brand
Your packaging should reflect your brand and represent you—who you are, what you do, and how you do it. You want your clients to see the value in your work… to love what you’ve created… to want it… to keep them coming back to YOU. The right photo packaging can help you do that. Photo packaging enhances the value of your work and takes it to the next level.
There are a wide variety of photo packaging products available to you. Fortunately, companies like Tyndell Photographic make choosing photo packaging easy. Tyndell offers a wide selection of products—in a variety of styles, colors and sizes—as well as several customization options so you can select the perfect photo packaging for your brand.
First, you must make some decisions:
- How do you want to package your prints—whether you prefer portrait folders or cases, portrait boxes, portfolio boxes with matts, folios or albums—there are options for every occasion.
- How will you package digital files? It’s important to choose USB products and packaging that will suit your needs and reflect your brand at the same time.
- Don’t forget about bags—Tyndell offers a variety of customized tote bags and frame bags to fit products of all shapes and sizes.
- Lastly, accessorize! It might not seem like much, but believe it or not a little bit of ribbon and tissue paper go a long way when it comes to impressing clients.
