Last week, I shared with you some booths at Imaging USA 2013 that overall inspired me. They gave me ideas for design, my business, photography and more. This week, I am sharing with you a few products that I loved and hope to blend into my business in 2013.
Gray and yellow are so striking together. This was my favorite wall at Wild Sorbet. Tana, the owner, said it was her favorite wall too when I posted the picture on Instagram. So stylish.
American Color Imaging
Speaking of frames, these circle frames from ACI that you can print in whatever pattern you want would be so fun to offer. How customized can you get?
Packaging & Product
Rice Paper Supply
On to packaging, I saw two completely distinct looks that stuck out to me. Rice was one. They have developed a complete, gorgeous line of packaging that I would totally love if I were a client. Torn edges, fiber paper. Very tactile and they displayed it in such a fun way with clothes pins and wooden boxes.
The other packaging that I really liked was on the complete other end of the spectrum. Wildcat Packaging offers brightly colored boxes and bags in a rainbow of color with full color printing at a really cheap price and quantities only starting at 25. Decisions, decisions.
Another unique offering for printing is Woodsnap. I love the look of printing on wood, especially for fun signage. Fun idea here for sure.
I also always love the Couture Book line. They are so classy.
White House Custom Color
I’m also always looking for backgrounds that will go with the upcoming trends. Here are a few of my favorite my WHCC. Emerald is Pantone’s color of year so the green vintage background is great. And the retro patterns are also perfect with some of my favorite trends.
Backgrounds by Maheu
These gorgeous blossoms in David Maheu’s new line really jumped out at me, too. He said it’s absolutely brand new so I can’t wait to see how it photographs. Such an artist!
And last, I love the idea of giving back with Fotostrap’s fotolanthropy concept. You can customize your fotostrap with your name imprinted on the leather too.
