Hello Everyone! I hope it's been a lovely summer and fall for you, I know it's been a wonderfully busy one for me!
I’ve finally done something I wanted to do for a very long time! I’ve now made high quality prints available to my clients. There are several reasons I haven’t, including the time it takes to set up on my end, but at the end of the day I decided I was not doing my work and your families justice by only offering you a disc and letting you go make prints at your own risk.
Now, don’t panic, you can still get discs. The prices on those will vary with the type of session. However, now if you find a picture you are just dying to put up on your wall in all it’s sharp, colorful glory, you can do that and not have the poor quality of a mass-market printer.
I’m sure a lot of you have seen the side by side comparison photographers make where they take a photo and have it printed all over town and then by their choice of pro labs so I’m not going to waste our time with that trick. I’ll be honest, most of my ‘everyday’ printing, including a few on my wall, came from Sam’s Club. As a matter of fact, when my clients ask where to get something printed, I tell them that if it’s just snapshots and smaller photos, Sam’s Club or Costco will be fine. I have personally compared their printing to other local and online printers such as Snapfish and Sam’s Club and Costco will always beat them out on clarity and color. I do NOT recommend anyone but Sam’s or Costco.
However, I have always told my clients if you want something special, a larger print or a canvas let me know and I will order it through the pro lab (you have to be a photographer to use them). To make this even simpler I have started offering password-protected client galleries where you can purchase your prints directly. It’s not that different from online ordering used by places like Sam’s or Wal-Mart except I upload the pictures for you. And the pictures are calibrated for my monitor so they look just like I made them. Now you can get quality prints much easier. (Or if you’re like me, it’s in the middle of the night when you finally get time to make an order)
So as you’re getting ready to start ordering prints, making special framed works for Grandma and Grandpa for Christmas and such, please give ordering through me a try. My print prices are set to an introductory rate, just for the Christmas season-just make sure you order in plenty of time to get them in!
Thanks and Happy Fall!
