2008 Outlook

And The Transition Continues...
Last year, our industry continued to see vast changes in both technologies and capabilities.  Pounds Labs continues its commitment to serving the professional digital photographer by broadening our product and service offerings.

In the next few months, we’ll begin to roll out a new line of digital press products that include coffee table books, table tents, calendars, and more.  We will also perfect our workflow to increase turnaround while maintaining the level of quality you expect.

In addition, our education programs this year will continue to offer you practical and time-saving tips to help you understand and get the most out of digital photography.

Yes, 2008 will be as adventurous as the past several years for both you and us—and we’ll be here to help you every step of the way.  Thanks for choosing Pounds for your professional photo finishing needs.

Tidbits

Stop By!
ImagingUSA in Florida was a huge success this year.  We had many visit our booth to check out what’s new.  We enjoyed meeting all who stopped by.  If you didn’t get a chance to attend ImagingUSA, don’t fret.  We’ll also be at the following trade shows:

  • SWPPA Convention - Arlington, TX – February 16-20
  • PPL Winter Seminar – Kinder, LA – February 24
  • WPPI Convention – Las Vegas – March 17-19

Big Print Special
Save 50 percent now through March 31 on select prints sizes 16x20 through 30x40.

Here’s how it works:  Simply place an order for a big print (16x20 through 30x40) and it automatically gets billed at half price.  No strings attached!  The first print will be billed at half off and additional prints from the same image/size will be regular price.  Finishing services are always available to enhance your print, but at regular pricing.  This limited time offer does not apply to Panorama Prints, Sports Posters, Gallery Wraps, or Fine Art Prints.

The Big Print Special is an ideal way to spruce up your studio with new wall samples.  You can also use the lower prices to create your own studio specials to boost sales and profits.

Sample Prints/Studio Samples Program
Pounds is happy to provide a 30 percent discount on prints from your files or negatives from now through August 31. 

The discount will be applied to prints and finishing services only—art, merchandise or special handling will be invoiced at our regular prices.  The Sample Discount is not available from September 1 through December 31 and may not be used on any promotional priced products. 

Sample orders cannot be rushed and are subject to minimum order charges.  If you have any questions regarding this program, feel free to contact a friendly customer service representative.
