Make The Most of Your Holiday Styled Stock


Heyyyyoooo lovelies! With December upon us (how is already the 4th day into this magical month?!), we thought it would be helpful to dish out a bit of handy inspiration on how to make the most of your Styled Stock this holiday season. With the 4th quarter being one of, if not the, highest grossing quarter – and in particular, the month of December – for many of our darling KateMaxStock members (and businesses around the globe!), we know the importance of a well planned and well-executed marketing strategy this time of the year, which is where we’re here to help!



With access to over 3000+ (and growing each month as over 30 new styled stock images are added!) images, our members get instant access as soon as new images hit the Member Library and boy ohhhhh boy have we been busying supplying the Member Library and the Shop with tons of gorgeous new holiday images! We know you’ve got about two extra minutes a day, which is probably spent brushing your teeth or playing with your kiddos, so the wide array of holiday images in both the library and the Shop are here to save the day and make marketing your business a breeze this month! However, we also know the inspiration can be lacking a bit this time of the year (hello holiday stress! go away, you bugger!), so we’ve rounded up a few of our recent favorite examples of how to rock your styled stock photos this holiday season from some of our lovely KateMaxStock members. These businesses are all crushing it marketing their businesses and we’re honored they are each using their membership images to the full potential!

Without further adieu – let’s check out these beautiful examples of how to use your styled stock images this holiday season!

We have a lot of stationery members inside KateMaxStock and try to include a variety of styled stock stationery photos for these members each month. This particular time of the year is always so busy for these members, with holiday cards, gift tags, and more stationery and paper good products to market. das Fräulein Hanse is based in Germany and has been using her KateMaxStock membership BEAUTIFULLY! We are in love with the way she has taken photos from each of our various holiday collections below and customized them to show off her products!



See what we mean?! Gorgeous! The way she used this photo from our new Gingerbread Cookies collection is too good! Totally customized to suit her brand and business!



Aaaand she’s rockin’ her styled stock photos even more in this gorgeous holiday collage mockup!



Another favorite KateMaxStock member using her images to the fullest to market her stationery brand is Cami Monet. Her work is too adorable and makes us want every single piece each time we see it pop up on Instagram! She used this image from a previous holiday collection to create her website’s homepage graphic and we have to say… it looks pretty dang perfect!



How much do you love her illustrations?! We’re pretty honored she’s using KateMaxStock to help market her biz beautifully!



Bridgett Lynette is another KateMaxStock member saving time, hustling less, and marketing more beautifully (her gorgeous design is the one featured up top, yo!) with her styled stock images this December! She’s mixing and matching different holiday collections to feature her calligraphy work and we have to say, her work looks right at home within these images!



While stationery designers love the styled stock this time of year, our other biz owners and bossladies are using their membership images to create graphics, sale announcements, website banners, newsletter & blog content and a whooollleeee lot more!

Take a look at the way these members, from left to right, used the holiday collections to create their own graphics:



Paper & Wit used one of our holiday and winter images to create a shipping notification graphic and an image from our Blush Collection to create the second graphic.

Branding guru Tierra Wilson is the genius behind the bottom two graphics! Aren’t they lovely?!

We’re excited to see how more and more members and customers start to use our new holiday 2017 collections as we get further into December! If you’ve recently joined us inside KateMaxStock as a member or are just in need of a bit of inspiration this holiday season, we hope these examples from some of our fave boss babes out there have inspired you! As always, go make the most of your styled stock photos and we’ll see you on Instagram!
