schools & sports
hhschools studio bridge
our newest software feature
We have built a bridge from hhschools to hhstudio!
Sometimes studios wish to offer higher-end products in volume photography that don’t fit well in the volume production process, packaging and delivery systems. So we have built a bridge!
hhschools studio bridge is a unique feature that allows you to manage your workflow in hhschools and then quickly and easily launch selected images into hhstudio software to order portrait/wedding division products. While this isn’t intended for use with something you sell hundreds of, it allows you to offer your volume clients higher-end products such as gallery wraps, framed prints or jewelry. Orders in hhstudio will ship separately.
Are you looking for a more upscale, high-end look for your print packaging? H&H now offers black linen window envelopes for your volume events like dance schools, proms, graduations, boutique volume sessions and volume senior sessions. Select this option in hhschools or hhsports and receive a beautiful high-end look for your volume event – packaged, labeled and ready to deliver to your clients all at the same price as clear bags!
