The good news is I have an order for prints! Yeah! The bad news is that I don't have a good way to deliver them. I will be hand delivering to the customer

I'm not looking for an album (that's an extra charge), but I want to put the photos in something a bit more professional than a manilla envelope.

Ideas? What do you use?

Thanks!

Greg

I actually use a colored folder in a manila envelope that is stamped with my company information and a big DO NOT BEND. However I do one thing that usually helps show the client that I really care -- I provide a white cotton glove for them to handle the photos with and keep. They are inexpensive and they go a long way in saying that you care about the images you produce.

I use thin paper bags from albumsinc.com. They've got an antiqued photo look to them. They work for me.

I include a small 8x10 album with 10 pages in the reprint charge. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] (disguised as a handling fee)

This doesn't look very professional, but here's a tip - when mailing prints, save the pack the paper comes in. The manufacturer spent a lot of money designing that package to be as strong and light as possible. That's what I always do when mailing them.

As far as hand-delivering, I always just put them in a big manila envelope, frankly, but then nobody's usually paying me. I think I'd have to go with the suggestion to sneak the cost of an inexpensive portfolio/binder into the print price at that point. I picked up several at Calumet Photo the other day on sale. You can also get inexpensive ones at Hobby Lobby.

I print my invoice (from Quicken) on white envelopes.
