    There's been a few posts concerning scrapbookers lately. And another by Sonya asking how people got started. This prompted an idea. If there is a relatively new scrapbooking business in your neck of the woods, you might want to talk with the owner. You could get together to make a press release telling about the scrapbooking business, and how they are different from most because they use you , a restoration artist, to copy the valued photos for people who want your services, thereby keeping the original intact. A little background about your business, and what services you provide could be worked into the press release. Local newspapers are glad to get this type of information, and if it's done right, they will often put an article in the paper free of charge. I think it was Sandra who had a bad experience with a scrapbooking business, but that doesn't mean it's not a viable option for you. Or if you don't like that deal, make out a press release for your own business. Just a thought, and the price is right!

    You know, that's a really good idea. And there's a scrapbooking business somewhere around here... I see that darn sign every day, but right now, I can't remember where it is. Silly brain, playing tricks on me...

    At any rate, thanks for that suggestion!

        I've just spent half of the day visiting Australian scrapbooking sites gathering contact emails. My intention is to email most of these sites offering my services to copy and or repair/restore photos for scrapbooking. I thought I might offer them a commission of maybe 10%-15%. Hopefully they see the benefit of saving the originals and using my services. Oh yes, I've also joined most of their user groups and signed up for their newsletters. HOpefully I'll be able to get some ads in the newsletters in time.

          Good thinking Sandra. That just might pay off really well for you.

            Public Display Of Work
            by thomasgeorge
            Has anyone here tried contacting any Businesses like Resturants, Hair dressing salons etc., about displaying before and after pictures of your work and how did you go about it? How often do you rotate the prints, what all do you display? Tom

            Keeping Expenses Down
            by Ed_L
            I thought this might make a good thread for those of you in business, or those of you thinking about starting a business. I don't know how many ways there are to get the most bang for your buck, but I expect most of the money saving tactics would come in the advertising part of business. Feel free to...

            Fair price for your work
            by DJ Dubovsky
            I'm just getting started so things may take a while to get going. So far all my clients have been extremely pleased with their results. I've even had repeat customers.

            My biggest problem is the price. Most people seem the think restoration is too much to pay and I have been really...

            frustrated with new business
            by jenjen
            HI everyone! I started my own business with photo restoration back in the summer. I did some advertising but was limited because i don't have any extra money. I put a ad in the paper and handed out some fliers and posted a post card flier in some convenient stores. I haven't had one call or anything....

            Getting started in Business
            by thomasgeorge
            All too often folks will "take the plunge" into a new Business venture without taking the time to really investigate what all is involved. Even with large amounts of research, there is still a void....namely, advice from those who already are in business, as regards what the minimum skill...
