About a month ago I set up a store front on the Etsy Website to sell the digital photo books that I design.  Go to PhotoBookDesigns.  I hope that everyone will take a look at it and let me know what you think.  If there are ways that you think I could improve it just send me an email or text.  I love hearing the comments.  Also you might want to check out my testimonials under look who’s talking.

captureGraduation time is here again!

It is time to be thinking of a great personalized gift for your special graduate.  Graduation is an important milestone in life’s journey.  Why not show them how far they have come in just a few short years by giving them a photo book of their life this far.  They can enjoy the photos, articles, and adventures that have happened since they came into this world. It is a good way of keeping family and friends close when the graduate leaves the nest and starts the next phase of their life.  This is a one of a kind gift that they will cherish for years to come.

You can make this gift, however when will you have the time?   All you have to do is get the photos and articles to me.  The book will take about a month to create and mail to you (if you are in Lubbock you can pick it up).  Get your photos and articles together now, then call me and schedule a time to talk.

Please check out my website for all the pricing information https://photobookdesigns.com/  There you will find all kinds of interesting ideas and don’t forget Mother’s Day is also coming up soon.  If you reference this article you will receive free scanning on 20 of your paper photos or articles.

Sharing Photos through iCloud

telephone-cartoon

How far we have come from the 1800’s type of phone to the cell phone.  With the invention of the cell phone we started a new revolution of people taking more and more photos.  One of the problem for many is: how do I share those photos with the ones I love?  If you are using an iPhone you could use iCloud and most of the newer android phones have a share program.  If you can’t find it you should check where you purchased your phone and get them to help you.

One of Photo Book Designs clients used the iCloud to make a journal album and then is all she had to do was send me the link and I was able to make her a beautiful 11 X 14 coffee table book of her and her son’s four month trip across the US.  She had over 900 photos in her journal making it a fabulous book.  Here is the link to the iCloud website so you can check this out to see if it would be a good fit for you in sharing your photos  http://www.apple.com/icloud/photos/

The iCloud Photo Library stores every photo and video you take, and keeps them up to date on all your devices. Any edits you make are automatically updated everywhere. iCloud Photo Sharing makes it easy to share photos and videos with exactly the people you want to see them. Create a shared album and invite friends and family to add their photos and video clips as often as they want. And you can even take your entire photo collection everywhere without using up all the storage space on your iPhone. Read More

Accepting Payments and Selling Online

by barkingdogwebdesigns

If you sell a product or service, you’d be crazy not to at least consider selling online.  For some businesses, this is as simple as using a PayPal button to accept deposits or fees online; for others it means implementing a comprehensive e-commerce platform complete with shopping cart, tax, shipping, and inventory management features.

There are numerous options for processing online payments.  Here I’m going to talk about PayPal, Square, and Weebly …. read more
