Default Re: Christmas Cash

Thanks Phil....I see there's a bunch of companies offering this service so, it is viable.

Now....the way MY mind works is, I like to come up with things that are unique and different AND....potential Clients EAGERLY WANT....HUNGRILY.

So....remembering back to my "Photo Business Card" days (I think it was back in 1985 when Photo Business Cards first came out)...I'd walk into a business, show a few samples, state what my service was, quote a price and "Ask For the Order"...get a deposit, arrange a time to take a Photo...take the photo, send it to my Photo Card supplier and they'd make up the amount I ordered.

So...I'm thinking;
"Why don't we look into "PHOTO GREETING CARDS" with PERSONALIZED Photos in a Frame"

A photo of a Dentist and his staff, a Physician and his staff, a Chiropractor and his staff...a Beauty Salon owner and her insurance agent and his staff...etc.

This would be a PERSONALIZED Card....with a nice greeting and the Name of the Sender.

Now....3 things;
1) Where do I go for 100 or more copies of a Photo?
2) Where do I go for a "Photo Greeting Card Frame" I can slide the photos in?
3) What could I charge for these? (I'm assuming I could get at least $3 ea in lots of 100 or an initial Photo Fee)

So...I'm still doing "research" into this because I REALLY think it is viable, where almost anyone can;
1) Walk into a Dentist or Doctor or Insurance Agents office....
2) Show some Samples, explain what you're doing, quote a price, get an OK for X qty
3) Arrange appt for photo (I do NOT think one has to be a "Pro". Just a decent shot with a Digital would suffice) (I've taken many shots with my digital and they come out ok)
