I have been meaning to create this post for the better part of four months now, so I’m so pleased to finally share it with you all!
If you have taken my business tutorial, you will have learned about the importance of branding for your business. I can’t stress this enough! I have gone to great lengths to make sure that the final product I deliver to my clients is on brand and looks great and I wanted to share with you folks the companies I use in my product packaging for weddings! I changed my final delivery to clients about three years ago and it really has made the world of a difference in leaving a good final impression of my work.
First off, lets start with the USB! I use Branded Flash Drives by USB Memory Direct and I have absolutely LOVED them! I have done both the laser and the stamping and I can’t say I have a preference one to the next, but what I can say is that I love how my logo stands out so well with the stamping that USB Memory Direct offers. They’re fast and available in many sizes! (I’ve recently discovered JPEGmini and I think I can probably purchase smaller USB’s because of it, but I have been using the 16GB USB’s now for the better part of three years.) Definitely check them out if you’re in need of purchasing USB’s!
Secondly, I ALWAYS include a few prints of my favourites from the wedding. This just reiterates to your client how important it is to print their images! This little preview gets them excited about what they’re about to view on the USB as well as it gives them something to frame immediately!
Thirdly, I make sure to include printing recommendations (as I don’t offer printing services) as well as a note from me thanking them for allowing me to be a part of their big day. This just keeps things really personal and allows you to tell them how grateful you were for their business.
Fourthly, the box that it all goes into is by the amazing WoodenBanana. They have all sorts of customization available as far as sizes of the box as well as how the box opens (hinge or slide). They’re located in the UK so the exchange is a little brutal, but their product is defiantly worth it!
I put in some random greenery (from Michaels) and tie up the images all nice with twine for the finishing touches and away it goes!
