I've partnered with my sweet friends at the SC Stockshop to create a tutorial detailing how to use styled stock photography to showcase your custom stationery designs. Shay's beautiful desktop images are my absolute favorites to use when displaying my designs. She has such an incredible variety of colors and styles to uniquely fit your brand!

In this tutorial, I show you my step-by-step process of how I use SC Stockshop styled desktop photos to display my stationery designs on my Instagram, in my shop, in my portfolio, and on my blog.

I cover frequently asked questions from what file size and dimensions to use, how to layer and arrange stationery and envelopes to make them look natural, how to add drop shadows to your designs to make them look realistic and blend in seamlessly with the styled stock image, how to save your designs for web, and more.
