What you want:
With over 20 years of experience in the school portrait industry, we invite you to meet with us to share information. We will gladly discuss the best options to suit your clients needs or a package to meet a set budget. Value-added extras are our speciality, we know clients appreciate getting more than expected and we have many ideas we know you can use.
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 a package from Graduations, School plays, Matric Dances, pre-primary schools and primary schools.
Our design team are able to create beyond the existing wide range of 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 photographer’s 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 student cards could be added on to any part of a package in place of other images.
All prints are on genuine Fujifilm Silver Halide paper. We do however reserve the right to print orders on our Drylab system if deemed necessary by our production team.
