You never get a second chance to make a first impression ...or so runs the old adage. With this in mind photofinishers The Sim Group (comprising Sim Imaging for albums and books, SimLab for prints, SimFrame for frames and mounts, plus SimExpress for cards, compliment slips and business cards) has announced a trio of products for its SimExpress range, said to be ideal for those photographers starting up in business and seeking to make a positive impression. In fact the whole raison d'être of is that these are print products for photographers suitable for use in marketing, with the ability to simply click and create designs to suit.

Under this umbrella it offers a range of greetings-type cards for a mere 40p each (ex VAT), if ordering 500 A6 cards. These could be sent to potential clients as there is the option to include your branding - in doing so, offering excellent marketing potential for your business. Prices for the cards include envelopes to match the quantity of the order.


Another funky option is the marketing folios available via for also showcasing your work. Choose between trifolds, quadfolds and CD trifolds, the latter offering greater flexibility. Prices start from 42p each (ex VAT) if ordering 500 trifold minis. Sim says it developed the trifold range as being an easy-to-order visual showcase for your work.
