When you discover J.Crew has been shopping in the SC Stockshop...
Guys, we were just scrolling right along on Pinterest this week when out of the blue we stumbled on a J.Crew fall newsletter and had to do a double take. But seriously, it looked like J.Crew had been shopping for their promotional items in the SC Stockshop!
We couldn't believe the similarity! This led us down the rabbit hole to discover more examples of J.Crew newsletters that are on par with SC Stockshop images.
Do you know what this means for you, the Stockshop customer? It means that you and your shop/blog/brand have access to images that rival a brand like J.Crew. And the best part is, you can get these high quality promotional images for a fraction of what it would cost you to hire a commercial photographer!
Are you excited yet?
Think about what you expect when you open a well known brand like J.Crew's emails. Think about their catalogs, Instagram feed, when you walk into a store - the whole brand experience. Then imagine your customers feeling the same way when they encounter your brand. The SC Stockshop aims to give you the opportunity to build the same high quality, highly recognizable brand for a fraction of the cost.
Take a look at these image examples pulled straight from J.Crew's marketing campaigns next to the similar SC images so that you can get an idea of the types of promotional images you can create with your images.
Are you ready to get started?!
We know a lot of customers use Photoshop or InDesign for creating their promotional images with our styled stock but if you are a design novice, have no fear! We highly recommend trying out Canva if you're feeling overwhelmed. You can choose from preformatted sizes and just drag and drop. Plus you can try it for free!
We also have lots of tutorials for using our images over on the website as well as great examples, instructions and videos here on the blog! So be sure to click around our site and dive into all of the resources we have available.
We know that your business deserves show-stopping marketing material and we completely have you covered!

These images have been designed to become a part of your branding just like a logo or font choice.
As an entrepreneur yourself, you know how frustrating and discouraging it can be when people misuse, steal, giveaway or alter your work. With that in mind, please don't change the colors or move the props around - it just doesn't look as good (and infringes on the usage terms)!
Feel free to crop the image any way that you want and overlay it with text or designs to help you to promote your brand and sell more products!
By purchasing the image you are agreeing not to give the image (or a part of the image) away to anyone else in ANY way even if you turned it into a beautiful free e-book cover, or snazzy desktop screen savor.
It would also be just plain wrong to re-sell the image in any form such as turning it into an art print or including it in a website or other template design.
Lastly, using an SC Stockshop image to sell your styling course, webinar or other styling related training is sort of false advertising. Show them the styling that YOU have done so that they know exactly what they are in for and can get excited! This is not meant to scare you.
