Product Photography – Take Great Photos Of Your Merch With Your Phone

Today, mobile phones are less about making a call and more about everything else. Capturing that Instagrammable moment and getting the content right out there for everyone to see RIGHT NOW!

You’ve got your merch, so let’s jump right in and take some shots using some of the built-in features on (most) smartphones.

7 Creative Ideas For Business Cards

The humble business card has been around for hundreds of years. It the easiest, cheapest and most effective way of sealing that good impression at trade fairs, business meetings, chance encounters. You never know who you might bump into on a plane, or in a pub.

Like most things, it comes down to design. If you have a great design then you’re all set. If you don’t have a great design, then it’s time to get some inspiration here, here, here, here or here. These are our favourites right now anyway…

 

Below are 7 ideas for looking at business cards differently. A lot of these can’t even be categorised as business cards, they are just taking the shape and running with it to create something functional and beautiful while saving money in the process.
