As an artist, photographer, designer or other creative individual it is important to share the work that you create. Have you ever noticed that draining feeling that you have after you have created something but few people know about it? Sometimes it makes you question if the work that you do has value. Of course your creative work is important! You just need to share it. Black River Imaging is a great resource that allows you to showcase your work in the best light.
There are many possibilities for sharing your photographs or artwork. Imagine your work in albums, books, greeting cards or even fun stationary products. That stunning photograph could make for a lovely greeting card that you send to family and loved ones. A photo album could be the perfect gift for your mom. The personal uses for your work are endless.
A wedding may need the help of your creative gifts. Your best friend may be rushing to the altar and she wants you to make the perfect “save the dates” and invitations. Your astute design abilities allow you to design the perfect invite. Perhaps you are a photographer and want to present the happy couple with a special gift. Most newlyweds would highly appreciate a book comprised of the beautiful pictures that you snapped on their special day.
Professionally printed products allow you to put your best foot forwards. Whether you are doing mailings to share a gallery show or are having a book or portfolio made that shows the body of your work, a professional print will make your work stand out. Why let the beauty of your art or photograph suffer just because you wanted to save a few pennies printing it out yourself? There is a level of decorum in the art, photography and design worlds. If you overlook the decorum by thinking an illustration that you printed on card stock from your home printer should satisfy a magazine editor, agent or publisher, think again. Their offices are filled with submissions. Your illustrations could be the most stunning, but the agent or publisher might fail to see them in that light if they are not professionally printed. A professional print allows your work to do the talking.
Many creative professionals are taking their careers into their own hands and selling their work online. You could consider selling greeting cards or stationary that features your work. Many people are beginning to crave unique work from artisans. There are more online marketplaces than ever for people seeking unique handmade gifts crafted by artisans.
Your work has value. Treat your art, photographs and designs as though they are precious. If you showcase your work in a professional way, you will be surprised how favorably friends, family, professionals and consumers will respond.
