Well, after a lot of brainstorming, a lot of research, and a lot of gathering we have finally polished up our blog and I couldn’t be happier! When I started with Adoramapix, I wanted to make sure that we were more than just a photo lab, we were a place to share ideas and see each other’s work. It’s more about being a community. Although, social media is deemed as social, sometimes you never get to meet your virtual friends face to face or see their incredible work. Well this is a place where we showcase you! This is a place where we show your hard work and your amazing talent.
We will also have the most up to date information on the changes and updates at Adoramapix. Along with timely announcements on our incredible sales. No more searching through Facebook or Twitter! Our search features on the blog will help you find what you are looking for in an instant.
Plus, our fancy schmancy (yes, I know that’s not a word) tile bar at the top shows off your amazing panoramics. I want to thank all that have helped me start the blog — Matthew Pugliese, Patrick Smith, Stacey and Kelly Chance, Affinity Studios, Jimmy Phillips, Pak Ki So, Loren Roberts, Beckie Bragga and Beyti Barbaros. You’ll see their stunning work at the top and in our Members of the Week.
The Dark Side of Deadlines….
Most of us know that creating a deadline on a project is generally a good ideas as this gets people to push their limits in order to accomplish their goals. However, in some cases creating a deadline may just create a mess.
I am talking about deadlines in photo labs. Traditionally, photo labs let their clients know by when they must place their orders so as to have them delivered before the holidays. In the past, we also followed that custom. However, over time we discovered that this often did more harm than good when we received a huge surge of orders at the very last minute.. sometiems more than we could handle. When this surge focused us to push back our deadline by a day or two, this left a bad taste in the mouths of some of our best clients.
This year we have decided to try something new. WE ARE NOT announcing any deadlines, instead we have worked hard to add a live, in-house estimator where we show the current processing time based on our current volume. We encourage everyone to keep checking this and to please place your orders sooner, rather than later. The estimator is located on your home page and gives a guideline to times on prints, posters and custom photo books.*
We hope this will eliminate the pressure from our side so we can focus on delivering the best product for the best price!
