I took a few quick snapshots when I packed up Eric and Logan’s wedding photographs to send to them in the mail. We sent them a DVD with a collection of all their images (each one edited) sized for print and Web, two special notes they’d written for each other on their wedding day, some prints, and a few surprise treats from us. I like the way it looks all put together! What do you think?
Believe it or not, the box and the packing material come from Office Max: Caremail Ecopacking and generic corrugated white shipping boxes. Our CD tins are from American Digital. The cards I designed myself using templates from our professional photo and press lab, ProDPI. My favorite wraphia and ribbon and the white envelope enclosure come from Paper Source, which is like crack to me. The chocolates and wrapping paper I picked up at a local stationery shop. There’s some variation in the packaging as far as what gifts we send (It’s a surprise! here it’s photo coasters from Crate and Barrel) and how they’re wrapped. I collect a lot of eclectic high-end papers that strike my fancy and use them when appropriate.

I’d love to hear from you, too!! If you are (or were) a bride, what besides a disc of images would you like to receive from your wedding photographer with your wedding coverage? What would make it feel special for you when you opened the package after getting it in the mail?
