Turn Your Portrait Packaging Into A Luxury Experience
Luxury packaging isn't only for the high-end retail stores in Beverly Hills, it's possible to create a luxurious experience in your portrait studio.

Where your portrait studio hand delivers to clients or send the portraits through the mail, the first thing you'll want to consider is how to protect your wedding pictures, family pictures, maternity or newborn pictures.
You'll want to ensure your portrait packaging is sturdy and will properly protect the beautiful artwork you've created.
Impress your portrait clients with a creative and over the top unboxing experience.
#1 Ditch The Box
As photography studios, we receive countless boxes from our vendors. The first thing that can be done is leave the brown box behind (ditch it). Please don't give your clients their beautiful portraits in a brown box that has travel marks and rips. Remember, everything you do and or say is a representation of your brand. You'll want to ensure your packaging is an ambassador of your brand.
#2 Be Strategic
Strategizing your overall packaging look is key. Who does your studio serve? What do you want your packaging to convey to your portrait clients? How can you infuse your studio's brand and mission into the overall look of the packaging? What colors will be used in the packaging? How will different items be packaged?
Excitement is the name of the game! Your packaging design should excite your photography clients. You'll want to think about all the human senses to create packaging that will impact as many senses as possible.
As creatives, sometimes it's hard to reign in our creativity. Our creativity overflows into our logo. However, when it comes to luxury high-end packaging, you'll want to ensure your photography studio logo is timeless and classic. Remember, you'll be putting your logo everywhere. Therefore, you'll want to ensure it is a great representation of your brand, and it will be easy for the different photography vendors to replicate and print on the different packaging used for products and merchandise.
#5 Brand Colors
Brand colors say a lot about a studio. Colors have meanings; you'll want to ensure the colors used for your studio represent the meaning you want to convey and align with your portrait studio's mission.
Bright colors tend to be associated with affordability. Let's think about it; worldwide luxury brands typically have subtle color shades.
Match your packaging colors to the colors on your website and social media platforms. You'll want to look consistent across the board.
