    I'm interested in getting some enlargement envelopes to put client's finished work in. I'm not talking about those ugly manila style envelopes with the cardboard inset, but something nice looking, that's made out of a light cardstock. I'm going to eventually be doing portraits on my own and I want something I can use for that as well.

    Right now I use the materials at work, which are the regular enlargement envelopes, not the nice ones. We use a nicer folder-style ones for our portrait enlargements, but I'll get busted if I start using those. I'd like to get some that are different looking anyway so I can further seperate myself from the lab I work at. I would also like to have them printed with the name of my business so (hopefully) customers can contact me directly in the future.

    Anyone have any ideas? Ideally, I'd like to find a place online with lot of samples to choose from. I've checked B&H and Adorama and they don't seem to carry this kind of thing. Loon Photographic has some but I'm not too crazy about the styles. Any leads would be appreciated.

        That was a good start but they don't have what I'm looking for. Actually, I think we order from them at work for our regular packaging. I'm trying to find something nicer. Thanks anyway.

            Hello All,

            I'm interested in any feedback the talented folks here might have. About six months ago, I started a business called "Pictoart" ( With very limited marketing, this business has grown to a point where I can no longer keep up with demand. I've...

            Doug, I don't have any information for you, just another question.
            But it's sort of on the same subject (actually I was going to start a thread when I saw yours).

            Has anyone here done any displays for their work?
            I'm thinking about setting up a booth at a local home show,...

            I'm looking to start retouching, can you help?
            by GlamGuru
            By the end of the year I will be losing my full time job. I've been able to make supplemental income with photography on the weekends. I'd like to take this opportunity to start a career shift and start focusing more on photography and retouching.

            I have extensive knowledge in Photoshop....

            Being too hard on yourself
            by twinkissed
            I used to do photo restoration and retouching as more of a hobby and favor for friends and family. Overtime it came more naturally and everyone would tell me "you should really do this for a living", well... ok.. how else could I stay home with my kids so I decided to give it a go. One problem...

            Advice Please?!
            by Jakaleena
            Hi guys!

            I could really use some advice from those of you who do freelance restoration or have your own businesses.

            I have been doing restoration work as an employee for quite a while. People walk into the lab, see the restoration & retouching samples on the wall,...
