    (Mike, I'm not sure if this is the right place-but it's meant for the portrait/wedding photog)

    1. Gallery Wraps- I can't stop selling these things...and they aren't low dollar items. You can even have them turned into a painting. The investment isn't crazy ($50-$300) but the return is usually in the $250-$3500 range. I'm amazed at this!

    2. Engagment Album Guest Sign in Books-I just bought one myself. The cost was $205, but went for $500. This seems to be a new trend too. Or just raise a package price by $500 and include it. These are so cool!

    You can find both items from a variety of sellers. These are selling like hotcakes!

    No problem Cindy, I moved it to 'Shop Talk', which is still part of the 'Business District'. The Wedding & Portrait Gallery...is, well...a Gallery...meant for posting images.

    I've seen the guest sign in books and I've seen Signing Mattes...but I don't know what a Gallery Wrap is. I will have to Google it.

    My albums are selling like crazy also, but that warp idea is awesome. I wonder if I could even make a wedding collage and wrap it how that would look.

    I've done it, and it looks killer. Just remember your "bleed" on this is so much greater. It takes a little working with but these honestly sell like crazy. Best investment ever!

    Elsaspet- have you used BWC? (since we are both local). I have not printed a gallery wrap yet, but the skin tones on there's was not that great and they even pointed it out at the lab, but I only saw the BW version and not color. Do you have a preference on the image quality of the wrap- if color or bw is better on the canvas? Do you have to boost contrast, ect to get good quality?

    Could you post a link or two of where you got yours for those of us who haven't used them?

    Thanks
