As Many of you may know, we are in the process of building a new website and store. We want to feature your work on it!
Over the years we’ve received great photos of the projects you have completed with our powders and materials. We often share them and use them to refer customers to you when they call us. It was with this mind that we decided to break the mold of the powder coat store by placing images of what the actual powder looks like on a part, yeti, jewelry… you name it!
We are making a call to you to share your images with us so that we may use them to represent our products. But we do have a few requirements.
We want to feature your work, not the background, your hand or garage. We would ask that you get as much of the sample in the photo as possible. We want to see the color and quality.
MAKE IT SQUARE
We prefer images that are perfectly square, 1200×1200 pixels is ideal. The easiest way to do this is to use the square setting on your phone or edit it in Instagram.
PUT YOUR BUSINESS NAME ON IT
We want to help you advertise so please put your company logo or name on it in a corner. please try not to cover up the piece and keep it a reasonable size. The customers will be able to enlarge it so there it no need to make it huge. Victor at Black Label Coatings has the perfect example of this.
DON’T CHANGE THE COLORS OR EDIT
We all love making our work look better by trying to bring out highlights and color, but most phones and digital cameras will take pretty accurate images. If you have a Dormant, Sparkle, Transparent, Candy… that looks better in the sunlight, take it outside.
NAME THE FILE THE POWDER COLOR
Please name the image file the Powder that it is illustrating. This can be easily done on a computer or tablet. The Format so look like powdername.jpg or using Super Mirror Black as a sample: SuperMirrorBlack.jpg. Please try to keep the pieces to one color or at least have the submission color as majority of the powder used on the piece.
SEND IT TO ME!
We love showing you work online with Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, but for the purposes of the site please send them directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. If the file is large, please use a file sharing service like WeTransfer.com or Google Drive.
When we launch the site if we use your image we will reward you with a coupon! We look forward to seeing your pics and sharing them with us.
BIG THANKS TO VICTOR PATE OF BLACK LABEL COATINGS!
