As a small business owner, I am constantly trying to streamline and make things more efficient. The most time consuming thing (other than actually putting banners together by hand) is taking all the photos and moving props around, trying to get the lighting right at the right time of day etc. It can be a nightmare if it’s a week of bad lighting.
Game changer? The HP Sprout. It’s insanely cool.
I consider myself a really tactile person, but I’m on the computer a lot for the blog and business so the HP Sprout really lets you bring the technological and tactile world together in a way that’s conducive for creativity.
One of my favorite features is the Sprout Workspace. I cannot stop scanning things, seriously anytime something catches my eye I’m like “I must scan this now so I can play with it on the Sprout!” and fall over myself going back to the computer because I’m so excited. And it’s so hi-res which is of course, a MUST for bloggers and business owners.
It saves me a ridiculous amount of time because it automatically clips the image without a background and makes putting images together in different ways really easy (my four year old LOVES it and got the hang of it in under a minute: drag and drop)
I played around with some of my favorite confetti from The Confetti Bar (soon to be available at the Bannerie!), scanning it in, resizing and moving the letters around and made a free download for you.
