School Packages and Bulk Printing
The Business of School Portraiture
The Business of School Portraiture and Groups is like no other. The client, the subject and the end-user are all so different. The photographer, in the middle, has to make the deal with the school, capture the portrait of the learner and deliver a product for the parent to purchase. All this must also be at a degree of competitiveness and delivered as a quality product. It takes a lots of hard work. It takes a team to scale. Success as a school photographer is a long-game, done right, it can deliver exceptional results.
As the leaders in quality school package design and printing, we are available to discuss changes and improvements. We know how competitive the industry is. Layouts and designs are carefully planned to produce a well rounded final package – for the photographer and end-user.
We’re in this together.
Studio22 is here to be your long-term printing partner – we have been doing this since 1996 after-all. We are here to do our share in keeping the quality with the quantity, so you can keep growing and so we thrive together.

Collaboration and support:
Over time, we offer advice and suggestions for marketing and promotion. Our experience in this industry allows us to offer advice that has been tried and tested to offer increased sales for package from Graduations, School plays, Matric Dances, pre-primanry schools and primary schools.
Our design team are able to create beyond the existing wide range or printing products like bookmarks, student cards and calendars. We design each school border to include the school badge and year of the shoot, as well as the school colours as required. We also make a point of adding the photographers information on each designer border, although we want it to be visible, we do not make it the look like an advert so this is usually small and adapted into the design. The batching of packages entails the electronic building of the package by adding individual images to multiple products and in various combinations. This is included in our package service and includes any combination of prints in your choice of layout. For example, a package can be adapted to include passport or ID size images, or a student cards could be added on to any part of a package in place of other images.
