    Paper proof copyright notice

    For many years, I've used a printed lable (very hard to remove) on the back of all paper proofs... portraits and weddings.

    I tried to re-order today and found that the lable has been discontinued.

    Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!
    -Pete

    What about a stamp? I think a lot of photogs even stamp the front with a special photo paper ink.

    The camera cannot express the human soul. The photographer can.

    Get over it. Thats what keeps people from just taking the proofs, scanning them, screwing the photographer, and comiting a copyright law.

    Most wedding photographers take a big old "PROOF" stamp and stamp the front of them. A nice sticker or stamp for the back stating they are copyrighted is a good idea too. İİİİİ

    UPDATE: The company (Century Marketing) called back with an offer for an alternate lable and said they'd throw in a new dispenser for free. All is well again.

    Thanks for the suggestions.

    Pete, does that company have a website? I'm looking into getting some labes for my photos as well.

    Sure. Actually, I think it's more important that I use these on my finished prints. It makes it really easy for anyone to phone me with a reorder.

    The web page with the labels I use is:

    This is what my label looks like:

    In Photoshop you can water mark your images as well as add a copy right notice on the bottom of the photo.
    Please don't alter photos unless asked to in the post.

    Is it better to stamp or add a label, stamping just seems like it would be far less time consuming. I just got an order for 700ish photographs, but I want to make sure that they come back for reprints, I just dont know if I want to spend half a day adding labels :-?

    They labels go faily quickly using the gun applicator (a second or two). The cost is higher, but they're neater, more ledgible, and won't transfer ink when you stack prints.
