Color Inspirations – Glimmer & Peach

Try out this elegantly glam Glimmer & Peach color scheme on your embroidery designs.

Get warm and glam with this week’s Glimmer & Peach color inspiration. Rustic hues get a pop of sophistication with gold accents, and stay warm and friendly with a bright bold peach. Use your gold accents sparingly to keep them soft and not garish. See how it compares to the original.

Which do you prefer?

What’s your best tip for getting better results out of your store?

Photography is everything in this business. Do some research and see how others are displaying similar products. There are some great “how to” instructions out there for people with absolutely no photography skills and fancy camera equipment is not necessary. Also, do a quick search for free photo editing applications for those pictures you may have taken when it was just a little too dark. Or try as you might, just can’t seem to get the balance correct. When using the photo editors stay true to the product though. People need a clear image of what they are purchasing.
