BECOME A DESIGN AGLOW SUCCESS STORY CONTRIBUTOR!

Want to be featured on the Design Aglow blog in all of your creative glory? Well we want to feature you and love to see what you are creating with our products! Please send your 8h x12w @ 72 dpi images of finished products to us here. If you have more than one image, we would like you to put it in a zipped folder before you upload.

The best part? If we use your images on the blog, you will receive a $75 credit.

Here are some great tips for successful product photos:
• use good, natural light, a simple background and avoid glares
• prop up flat pieces, like cards, instead of laying them flat on a table
• use a variety of angles and crops
• sharp, sharp, sharp, sharp. oh, did we say sharp?
• avoid using too many props; some props can add a nice pop of color, but products can get lost very fast with tons of props

We can't wait to see what you have to show us. Get sharing!

In hindsight, flying into Paris would've been much easier, especially after a long flight and jet lag. But easy doesn't make great memories! The train was actually quite convenient and a great way to relax after a long flight. You can buy snacks (and WINE) for your 2 hour trip without even leaving the station.
