how a photographer sells frames to 75% of her clients, the easy way

Gorgeous, modern photography deserves an equally gorgeous, modern display. Design Aglow believes that there is great value–both for your clients’ walls, and your business–in selling a polished final product. We understand that professional wedding and portrait photographers need sleek frames to enhance their clients’ imagery, and simple solutions for selling those frames to their clientele. Our frame shop offers both. We provide affordable, California-made frames to elegantly present your finished work, and support them with resources to help you earn additional revenue on every sale, with minimal work.

Elizabeth of Elizabeth Clark Photography shares, "When Design Aglow debuted their Frame Shop last year, I was immediately intrigued. I knew there was a desire from clients to have me frame their pieces, but I couldn't figure out a financial and time-efficient way to deliver what they wanted. But I had a feeling that these frames would work really well, and I was right!

For my sample walls I used two grab-and-go wall collections - one in Gold Bella and one in Barn Grey Woodworks. I also use the Frame Shop Catalog & Lookbook, which I printed through MagCloud. All the frames along the wall are for two client orders that I am about to fill! Since putting them up on my studio walls and creating a catalog from the downloadable template, I have sold frame collections at 75% of my client sales meetings.

I have also used some for my own home. Selling these has allowed my clients to receive a product ready for the wall, instead of having to do the extra step of going to a framer themselves or settling for mounted prints (most of my clients tend to like the more traditional look of prints matted in frames, which is my personal favorite display option for photographic art as well).

One little sales tactic I use with these frames - I only sell them in sets of three or as the other pre-made wall collections. This way, I don't have extra frames sitting in storage... but even better than that, I get more images up on my clients' walls. All of my sessions are taken with the goal to tell a story, and I mention that putting up frames in a triptych or collection is the best way to do this in a home. It has worked so far!"

I started my career ten years ago, working at a high end photography studio in my early twenties. No college, just hands on experience. While working there for a few years, I was also working on building up a clientele of my own. Once I had established a good amount of clients, I left the company and started my own business. My one hope for my art is that it will withstand the test of time and that further generations can appreciate it.

You’re a busy photographer/cinematographer/creative. You don’t have an extra $150-$10,000 laying around to collect sample products and you definitely don’t have a week to style rooms, hang art on the walls, set up flat lays, collect inspiring props AND THEN photograph everything and edit the images.
