Christmas in July is in full swing and the Hallmark Christmas movies are proof. Which means many family photographers are starting to plan Christmas family portrait sessions. Many are also thinking about how to package their portraits from those sessions. Did you see the Packaging Ideas for Your Photography Studio article? That article is extremely detailed on how to create a luxurious portrait experience for your photography clients.
This article is a continuation on how to give your clients a luxurious Christmas portrait packaging experience. Christmas is a festive time of year, so let's talk about adding a little festivity to your portrait packaging.
Christmas Story Box
With so many families gathering together to get their annual family Christmas picture for their Christmas cards, this is a great time to change your folio box to resemble the season. 3XM Solutions offers two different box colors that would be great the holiday season.
3XM Solutions allows you to have different designs on the top of your folio box. I create a Christmas design to be placed on the top of this box. The family's name could also be added to the top for an additional personalized touch.
The folio boxes from 3XM Solutions also come with a designer bag that matches the box. Do you like the design of this folio box? It's available for purchase along with the information about the fonts used.
Before giving the folio box to the photography client, I wrap it with a elegant black paper and tie it with a black ribbon with silver trim. Then I place a red wax stamp on top sealed with Merry Christmas. Other wax stamps are available and may be used.
Your portrait clients would truly be opening a Christmas gift from your studio filled with portraits of the people that love most.
Branded Tissue Paper
Branded tissue paper is another level of added touch. It can be used throughout the year.
Christmas Mailing Tape (Branded)
Do you have to mail anything to your clients? Let the celebration of Christmas begin before your clients open their packages. Do away with a bland generic tape and try out these festive Christmas tapes. They are a great way to show off your brand with a reminder that it's Christmas season. The different designs are available for purchase.
Thank You Gifts
As professional photographers, we have great clients. The end of the year is a great time to say thank you and send your clients a beautiful thank you for being a supporter of your business. Here are a few ideas you could use as thank you gifts.
Christmas Ornaments are a great way to send the gift of thanks to your clients. It's a yearly reminder of your portrait studio. You can have your studio's logo laser engraved on the ornament. There are several shapes and materials available.
Send your clients a branded scented candle. Did you come up with a branded scent? You can send your clients a reminder of your business through a scent especially if you use this same scent throughout all of your portrait packaging.
Thank You Card
A handwritten thank you card is a great way to show how much you care and appreciate your portrait clients.
Melted wax is an added touch. It's another level of sophistication and elegance. There are so many different holiday messages that are available for wax stamps.
Depending on the overall look of your thank you card, you may be able to continue that same style throughout the year.
Wax is available in multiple colors and various stamps are available as well. You can have a stamp created with your logo or a custom Christmas message.
