Presenting to new clients...

  1. Hi all,

    When showing your work to new clients, what types of presentation
    books do people out there like? Or do you show raw prints in a
    box? I have a portfolio of 10x10 prints printed on 11x14 paper, and
    can't make up my mind how to show them. I have been using various
    boxes and I think it looks lame and unprofessional.

  2. I show 16x20 and 11x14 prints in cardboard frames. Reason: so that several people can
    see them across the coffee table. Furthermore, I have 8 more albums that I show.
     
  3. I use a showroom that has quite a few framed 20 x 20 prints (approx. 25). In
    addition to that I have about 8 albums of different size pictures..10 x 10, 7 x 7,
    5 x 5, 5 x 7, etc...

    I find that the large prints make more of an impact, and help to get across my
    style to the client even if they only want smaller images.
     
  4. I have found the best sales tool is to show what you deliver at each wedding.For me this is a 4x5 or 4x6 book of 200-300 prints containing a complete wedding.I have 2-3 samples and then I show the "storybook" type albums.These are leather with 12-24 pages containing a mixture of print sizes.I normally show 1-2 of these in a sales meeting.I also have a few 11x14's & 16x20's laying around to give them a feel for print sizes.I like to minimize what I show,so I dont confuse them.
     
  5. In addition to framed work and sample books -- I always have an actual wedding on hand that I'm working on for reprints/albums etc..
    I explain that anyone can show you the best of x number of years .. But here they can actually see 3-4 proof books from one wedding which gives them a real clear idea of what they'll be receiving.
