Hey Red! My Samples Have Run Amok.

My clients (family/friends/strangers) always ask for my advice and recommendations on much more than just organizing. And the way I’ve seen it, if one has a question, I’m sure many do. Here’s where I’ll share these tips and answers with you!

Hey Red! My Samples Have Run Amok.

Question: It's time to implement some sort of filing system for my samples. Melinda, you're the profesh - should I go file folders or envelopes... And by job, color scheme, or category (business, wedding, etc.)

Answer: Yes. Yes it's definitely time.

Perhaps even just a touch past.

No need to worry though...this will clear up in a moment.

You want to use big binders with plastic sleeves. That way it's easy to flip through and find what you want. Divide first by occasion, then by style (modern, traditional, etc) and/or color scheme.

Alternatively, if they don't fit in one binder then do binder by category and then by style/color in sleeves.

And send me the after photo when it's done!
