RESOURCES FOR LOOKING SUPER LEGIT WHEN YOU'RE JUST GETTING STARTED.
Over the years, I've experimented and researched and DIY-ed a whole lot of elements to my businesses. I've made my own packaging, foil stamped my own hang tags, I've used a terrible custom email server, I've created free websites that sucked hours away with their inefficient interfaces and I've spent a lot of time creating filler imagery when I didn't have the perfect photos. Just a little sampling.
Once I discover a new resource to solve one of these problems, for some reason I immediately assume that everyone else must already know about it and must have been using it all along. But I know that can't possibly be the case. So if you're looking for some really easy to use tools and sources for making your new business (product-based or otherwise) look super legit, even if you're just getting started and it's just you working away behind the scenes, I've culled my 5 favorites. I hope to spare you the hours and hours (and hours) of hacks I've gone through to get here!
