Photography Products

I am now offering more than just prints! I am offering different photography products for you to display your photos! I will list them along with a description of them and some images.

Gallery Wraps

Gallery Wraps are a way to turn any photo into a work of art. If you’re looking for a quality Gallery Wrap, without anything fancy such as a laminate, or hanging options, our Gallery Wraps are the perfect solution. These Gallery Wraps are finished with saw tooth hangers and corner bumpers without any paper backing.

Float Wraps

Float Wraps are built to grab attention. WHCC takes your photographic or canvas print and wrap it around padded masonite, then coat it with a protective laminate for a sleek, elegant look. It’s black paper backing and thick gatorboard block with holes allows the image to hang extended from the wall, giving the appearance that your image is floating.

Wood Prints

Give your prints a natural look with your image printed on real maple wood. The beauty of the grain comes through on the lighter colors and white areas of your image giving it a soft and warm feel. Clients will love its eco-friendly durability along with the vibrancy of their images. Wood Prints are finished with a protective laminate. These arrive ready to hang with a pre-cut keyhole. Please be aware that the wood printing process is different from WHCC’s photographic printing process. Due to the nature of the maple wood, no two boards will look exactly alike. Each print will be unique and one of a kind. Pair your favorite outdoor, natural light image with the latest trend of printing on wood, from newborn babies to beautiful outdoor weddings. It will make a great addition and conversation piece in your client’s home.

My Etsy Shop! Let’s Get Things Rolling!

etsybanner

Hello everyone! I have been very busy starting an Etsy shop, reading all the tips and tricks I can find, and learning all the stuff I need to know to get a bigger reach and become better. I sold my first print in February and that sale kick started my Etsy obsession of getting everything in place and learning all I possibly can. I am selling my photography prints, mostly the nature and abstract photos. As of now I am offering six different print sizes: 8×10, 11×14, 16×20, 16×24, 20×30, and 30×40. I also offer custom orders which means that if you want a picture of something within reason that you would like to have as wall art in your home or you would think would fit a theme you have going in either a room in your home or your home in general you can contact me and I can try my hardest to get a picture of your vision and create something. I plan to offer digital downloads for all pictures so that customers can print the photo and use it for whatever reason they need. Some of the reasons I have seen customers purchase from other Etsy shops digital downloads is to use them for invitations, cards, etc. I also plan to offer framing for the photos in the near future. I am thinking of offering different types of wood since my Dad makes custom handmade clocks, jewelry boxes, and other items and has knowledge of that type of thing. His Facebook business page is called “The Time is Now”. You should definitely go check it out! He has some items in stock and you can contact him with an idea or even work with him on what you are looking for. If you are good at sketching you can sketch your idea and he can go off of your sketch and sketch something and more than likely bring whatever you are imagining to life. You can also contact him and tell him what you are wanting and he can sketch what you describe to him and try to bring it to life.

Okay so back to what I am doing! Other than offering digital downloads and framing options I will offer other photography products such as gallery wraps, floating wraps, metal prints, etc. The products are endless! It just takes a lot of time to get ALL of that listed on the store.

Just like with my photography businesses there are times that I feel like I won’t ever get anywhere and the one sale I made back in February will the only one I ever make. I seem to be the type of person that wants instant gratification and I just have to remind myself that with my photography businesses I did not book up a month over night. It took a good year and a half to REALLY start booking.

I plan to do more advertising on social media sites once I have gotten my Etsy shop a little more “stocked”. But as always the biggest and best advertising method is word of mouth and when people share my work and help get my Etsy store name and link out there. So now to me asking for your help! =) If you would please share my Etsy store I would greatly appreciate it. I plan to do a contest or giveaway on a social media site I use for my photography businesses (so make sure you are following my photography social media accounts!) to get some more traffic on my Etsy shop. I am also posting all of my photos for purchase or that will be available on my Etsy Shop on a Pinterest Board. The Pinterest Board is Kirsten Ray Photos. Make sure you follow it as I’m still adding photos because it’s going to take me quite a bit of time to upload all I have available. So be sure to share the Pinterest Board or re-pin pins from the board to help me gain some new followers and hopefully soon to be customers as I get it running a bit more. And as always I will give an incentive for helping me out!

You can visit my Etsy Shop, Kirsten Ray Photos . Of course sharing my Etsy shop is encouraged! I will be able to see my followers so again incentives will be given as a thank you!
