Digital Press Products – Additional Fees and Ordering Tidbits
While on the topic of digital press products, we ask that you place one order per product. If you wish to submit various different layouts for a product, please submit the first order and begin a new order session in PROS for the second and third and forth. Failure to do so could cause delays in the production of your order.
Kodak to Discontinue ProShots
If you have not yet transitioned from ProShots to another software solution, we encourage you to place your final orders now. It is also worth mentioning that depending on your use of the ProShots System, the Pounds Automated Sales System (PASS) will be an excellent alternative. For more information regarding PASS, please visit www.poundslabs.com/pass.

Your Ticket to Revitalizing Sales & Profits
New Shipping Option in Place
Please note that this will not be a definite practice. We are fortunate to be able to offer this choice of carriers through the end of the year. Each of the carriers has waved the volume requirements normally in place to get their volume based pricing. What this means is that at this time there is little difference in our costs between the three carriers. This will last until the first of 2008 at which time they will evaluate our pricing based on the volume we have shipped with them through December. We are hoping there will be enough volume for each carrier to justify the continuation of the competitive pricing.
We will have more announcements after the end of the year as we hear from the carriers about what pricing they can maintain.
There are NO early cut off dates for Christmas delivery. All orders will be dated for normal delivery times per our new Products & Services Catalog. If you request a rush or a delivery date shorter than normal, the order will be handled and billed as 100 percent rush. In that case, allow one day per service area.
Each of the following lines represents a separate service area:
No rush service will be available on:
This season, we will have the luxury of being able to ship using any of the three major private small package shippers in the United States: DHL, UPS and FedEx in addition to the United States Postal Service.
It is important that you understand that during the last week or so leading up to Christmas that shipping service time commitments may be curtailed. Here is what we are hearing from each of the three private carriers.
Holiday Service Times for the Three Carriers
At Pounds, we are committed to using a service that will get your orders back to you within two business days of our having shipped them. If you determine that for any given order you need faster delivery than what our standard provides call customer service and we will arrange to ship your order for next day delivery using the service of your choice. Extra charges based on the service requested will apply.
Regardless of the stated service time commitments, we encourage you to allow at least a day or two extra time when you make delivery commitments. Things can happen and if you have allowed a day or two extra to recover, that can make all the difference.
