Round two of my favorite booths and vendors from the show!
Meet :: Finao
I’m always intrigued by Finao’s booth, its usually a lounge style and samples of all their books are strewn about on coffee tables and couches. Their books are also always really cool, lots of textures and styles and covers.
Meet :: moo.com
I’ve been lusting after moo.com for months, and when I saw they were at the show I screamed with glee like a tiny little girl. My over excitement may have freaked out the employees working the booth. It was awesome to finally hold their products in my hand and their booth was pretty fantastic as well.
I try never to purchase anything at a show, even though all the vendors offer great deals, I avoid impulse purchases at all costs (or no costs…teehee). The only exception to the rule is if I know before hand that I was already planning on purchasing a product. So when I heard that their 100% recycled business cards were on sale I said and yes I shall have some.
And yup you guessed it, another change to Diliberto Photo & Design, new business cards, and made of 100% recycled paper too! I’m giddy with excitement!!
Meet :: White House Custom Color
Ok so I failed at this one, the one vendor I use the most, my beloved printer, I forgot to take pictures of their booth. But they did have one of the coolest contests. They give away T-shirts every year, and if you’re wearing one you have the chance to win a camera. Well, this year they stepped it up and they encouraged everyone to go crazy and be creative with their shirts. The most creative won an ipad! Nice. So I took my T-shirt and created a scarf.
With some hand stitched ruching, and some big yellow buttons, it was quite warm. Unfortunately I didn’t win the iPad, but I did win a free 8×8″ book! SCORE!
I’ve got one more new vendor to share with you, but that will have to wait until later.
SO as most of you know my background is in advertising and pr as well as fine art. Basically I’m a hodge podge of creative experience and interests. So when a company does something really cool with say a trade show booth or say…the launch of a new product I have to high five them. So to Miller’s I give a high five, even though you are not my printing company your booth design, phone charging station and Luxe lounge made my design radars tingle.
So you pass a bouncer and go up a large escalator. To your left is this delightful all white desert table. When prices and quality of food in the convention makes you want to just burn money, some decent sugary snacks (free ones I might add) are a welcomed addition to the experience. Miller’s also had an extensive list of speakers showcasing in their Luxe Lounge.
There was also a wall with little sticky notes for photographers to share what inspires them. I loved this!
After all that sugary goodness a bathroom break was necessary. In the stall was the above.
So what was the big release from Miller’s? It was the talk of the show and also a big release for my printer of choice White House. Meet die cut cards! GASP! Cheer! Exclaim! To put it lightly, I’m pumped. Annnnnnndddddd (drum roll) meet Diliberto Photo & Design’s newest new product! Here are 5 samples of the 50 new shapes available. I want an excuse to use the one on the top left, its my favorite, I’m thinking wedding invitation maybe? So my friends, get thinking, lets do party invitations, shower invitations, new address cards, personal stationary, christmas cards, thank you cards…with a photo or without we can design something awesome and completely personalized! Can you tell I’m excited?
I’m a little late in my posts and I truly appologize. As soon as we returned from Imaging USA in San Antonio we took our youth group to south Houston for Teen Mania’s Acquire the Fire Conference (ATF). Then as soon as we got back from ATF Bill and I both got type A flu. I’m told type A is the worst you can have, and from personal experience I can testify to the fact that it is quite awful. We’re still working through some of the symptoms and trying to catch up on the week of work we missed.
And now, here we are. Over the next few days I’ll be posting about some of my favorite things at Imaging USA, as well as some great vendors I got to meet while I was there. We’ve got new products coming out and a whole new look (check out the water marks on the photos for a preview of the new logo).
Meet Apple’s booth. I have no idea what this was all about. Where they planning on attending and then pulled out last minute. Did Imaging USA hold a booth for them in hopes that they’d attend? Curious right?
Stay tuned for more photos, awesome booths, and vendors in upcoming posts this week!
We’re here! Imaging USA has begun!! Registration was kind of nuts but Wilda and Monique were fantastic and got everything straightened out. About to start my first class.
In a few short days I will be at Imaging USA 2011, the mecca conference for photographers. Above is my good, dear friend Andrea from Ethan Avery Photography, we braved last year’s Imaging USA in Nashville together. Boy was it cold…that was when they had that big freeze and the water main broke down town… I’m talking c-o-l-d. This year its going to be in San Antonio, not too far from home and quite a bit warmer, and we’ll be braving the hoards of camera toters together. Seriously, its nuts. But we learn SO much and get to see great new products, props, backdrops, etc and meet really great photographers. Its a great way to kick start a new year.
