A few years ago, I remodeled my home office for my photography studio when I accidentally bought a standing desk and this cool packaging station from a photographer friend.
Mary was downsizing her boutique photography studio and was liquidating a lot of her inventory. Ironically, I went looking for a piece of furniture for a spare bedroom, but came out with new furniture for my home office instead.
This triggered an office remodel for my at-home photography studio!
Simple Office Storage Solution:
My photography business has been built DIY on a shoestring budget, and since I pay for my own retirement and healthcare, upgrading office furniture (or even camera gear) hasn’t been a strong priority.
When I saw the modern standing desk and minimalist office storage solution that Mary was selling, I couldn’t pass it up.
My home-office lost FOUR pieces of mismatched furniture! I downsized to just two highly functional desk solutions which include a standing computer desk and a packaging station.
Efficiency has been off the charts ever since, thanks to the standing desk.
Packaging my boutique photography products takes a lot less time because everything that I need is right within reach.

Are you wondering how I organize home photography studio and where I source my boutique photography packaging supplies?
Well, in the packaging station, I keep a variety of sizes of print folders, print boxes, tissue paper, business cards, copyright information, gift certificates, engagement event cards, and USB drive boxes.
Drop shipping photo orders to customers is painless when you have the perfect home office and are set up for efficiency.

Boutique packaging for photographers
Where do I find boutique packaging for photography?
I’ve been using Rice Studio Supply for years and love their large frame bags for schlepping sample canvases to my client’s homes for their in-person sales appointment.
Do you dread self-fulfilling your print orders? It doesn’t have to be time-consuming, and your profit can be MUCH higher if you package and ship yourself.
-->> Here is another hot tip: Batch Process!
- Place all of your print orders on Friday.
- They should arrive from the lab by the following Wednesday.
- Package and ship them all out by Friday.
