Saundra and I are both humbugs when it comes to the holiday merchandizing hype that goes on these days, especially Black Friday, advertizing, and setting up displays earlier and earlier each year. With that in mind, what we are offering may seem just a bit hypocritical, but let me explain:
While we aren’t normally open on weekends, we will make an exception on Saturday, October 25th. We will open from 10:00 until 6:00 to help our customers get a jump on their Christmas imaging needs. Many of the photo products we offer, especially scanning and Christmas card design, take time to produce.
So you see, it’s not that we’re eager to jump on the pre-holiday bandwagon. We’ve been doing this for over 25 years, folks, so we know how crazy it will get closer to Christmas, and we’re trying to make things easier for workers and customers, alike.
Here are some of the options you might consider when giving the gift of photo memories this year:
Many of our customers have been begging for a break on our scanning, so on October 25th, we’re offering a one-day special. For that one day, every scanning order (with the exception of our “Think Inside the Box” promotions) will be discounted by 25%. Our “Think Inside the Box” promotions are already heavily discounted, we’re talking about scanning of heirloom photographs and vintage medium and large format film that take extra TLC. That’s right, those old mounted photos and odd-sized negatives that can only be scanned via our flatbed scanner and copy systems. We have never offered this before, and it is unlikely that we will offer it again any time soon.
In case you’ve missed my previous posts, we’re now partnering with Fuji to offer a line of great photo gifts. From brag books to photo ornaments for the tree to photo magnets and more, there’s something here for everyone in the family. We still print greeting cards, too, from templates or customized to your specifications. And if you have a Jacksonville history enthusiast in your family, we are the official printer for the Jacksonville Historical Society. Scroll down for some examples of these and other offerings.
And of course we always have our traditional photo prints, but consider getting an early start on them, too. Getting your orders in before Thanksgiving is the most sure way to have them finished well before your holiday deadlines.
We hope to see you soon.
