Establish an Emotional Margin with Sublimation

Produce products that feed this need.

Marketplace perception has a huge impact on selling price. An item is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it.

That’s because of the emotional connection, what we can call the “emotional margin.” When a customer gets a positive inner feeling from the item (usually the visual aspect), they feel like it has a higher value. Thus, you must make every effort to produce images that feed this need.

Personalized products are a great example, especially when they include a photograph of a family member or pet. Personalization is a powerful marketing word, as it implies the item was made specifically for the recipient.
