Blogs are not really my thing, but it is a fantastic way to pass on information!
I certainly read blogs from other people to learn things, and see what they are up to. So now that we are into 2016 by nearly a week (horror), I have set my goal to try and write a blog once in a while!
And so for my first blog, I would like to announce a new phase to my business now that the December rush of Santa photos is over. I find it amazing how many people love to have Santa photos taken with their pooches (and rats, ducks, cats……) Lol, not all pooches think it a wonderful idea, and hats off to the santas who helped raise over $2500 for animal rescue groups this Dec.
So my news is that I will now be printing a selection of items, one of them being coffee mugs! You can order with whatever wording you would like with your image, and for some events where I can get a logo, I can add that too. You can have one or two pictures on each mug. I also have rock/slate, mousepads, luggage/bag tags,keyrings, water bottles, and other items. Over the last year I have had quite a few people ask me for gifts for their friends, so it is with great pleasure that now I can offer this. An item with their beloved pet/s on it is a very treasured gift!
But the news that is really exciting me is chromaluxe prints! (printing on metal)
I have 3 sizes available for now…. 5x7, 8x10 and 11x14 inch. They are available in gloss, semigloss and matte. The gloss is great for black studio photos. Whilst gloss is lovely though, sometimes the reflections can be annoying, and a Matte might suit better.
I am really excited to be adding these products to my photography services, and soon will be adding an exciting new product that I have to master first. (yep, another blog!) Standard prints are now becoming somewhat old hat, prints can warp and bigger glass frames can be quite heavy (and reflective!) I am about to get rid of a heap, and reprinting in Chromaluxe! If you rent, you can’t hang heavy frames, and the lightweight chromaluxe is just the ticket for hanging with non-damaging hanging systems, or you can stand these on flat surfaces as well. Easy to keep clean, and scratch resistant, bonus for me! Not to mention how awesome they look!
These items are ordered by personal contact for now, and listed in my image pricing menu. Rome was not built in a day, and at some point in the future will create a website that needs to go with this adventure. Exciting times ahead!
Have a fantastic 2016, may your year be filled with good health, good friends, and good times with your furry (or feathered) friends!
