Professionals should always have clean business cards ready to hand out at a moments notice. Unfortunately, business cards in wallets or purses tend to get dog-eared, and don’t show a professional look.
That’s why we now offer these Photo Business Card holders.
Each holder is made of polished stainless steel, and features a 3.4×1.8″ custom image on the front. They hold 15 cards, but are slim enough to put in your pocket.
Here are some ways you can market them:
1. Offer a box of business cards and a holder to graduating seniors as an add-on sale.
2. Fill the holder with “save the date” cards for a bride to put in her purse.
3. Use your logo, and create your own card holder – they make a great conversation starter
Photo Business Card Holders are $17.95. You can order them in JDLab2You under Marketing | Cards | Business Cards.

JD has added several new 8.5×11″ proof photobook page designs for photographers who deliver an “upscale” proof book to their clients.
These page designs, along with the more formal horizontal and vertical image designs, let you create one-of-a-kind proof photobooks that are especially popular with senior photographers.
In addition to the new page designs, 10 new backgrounds selected by our graphic design team are included. Choose from fresh designs like champagne brunch, damask gallery, rushing forest and more.
Every image will have their file name in the corner to make it easy for your clients to order prints.
Standard, custom, hard and soft covers are available options. Books can be classic bound or spiral bound. Prices start as low as $34 each.
These proof photobooks can be ordered in JD Lab 2 You/Proofs/Proof Photobooks/8.5×11 Proof Photobook w/BG Image.

Now available in JDLab2you – an expended selection of our popular Mural Mount option.
Our 1.5 inch classic black foam mural-mount board is now available in 4×5, 5×7, 8×10, 11×14, 10×20, 16×20, 20×24, 20×30, 24×30, 30×40 inch sizes.
Mural mounted photos are frameless and sleek with a light-weight, clean look sure to please you and your clients. Small sizes can stand on their own edge, or look great on an easel. You can use mural mount on several images to make a modern wall grouping.
Want even more “pop?” Try adding mural mount to a metallic paper print, and you can transform any image into a contemporary design.
Note that mural mounting requires that we trim 1/4 inch on all four sides to insure your image is printed on all 4 edges. Simply follow the trim lines during ordering.
You can order mural mount on the finishing page while ordering prints in JDLab2You. See all our print mounting options here.

Pint huggers are $5.95 each, and are available in JDLab2You under Specialty Items – Photo Gifts. While you’re there, check out our insulated wine bottle totes and sleeves too.
