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!

The business is 100% YOU. Then there are the not so obvious obstacles to being your own boss. You control your own schedule. You decide what direction you want your business to go in. You deal with your clients directly. The business is 100% YOU! Everything is on your shoulders.
