CurvedMetalsNew Curved Metals

Introducing NEW Additions to our Printed Metals

Our curved metals can be used in so many ways!  Create a collage of sizes and shapes on a shelf or mantle for that perfect display of a small collection of images.  Or, focus on one knockout image that really pops when printed on our brilliant or aluminescence  metal. The gentle curve of these metals allow them to stand alone-creating a unique way to show off your photography!

Offer your school a fun, new look with our comprehensive 2013 Spring Program.  It includes easy instructions, lighting diagrams, prop suggestions, green screen backgrounds, product templates, picture-day posters, and take-home reminders – all coordinated with our 2013 theme.


The time to start preparing for the Spring Program is NOW.  Visit our website for guidelines to make preparations as easy as possible.  Just keep in mind that the setup process can take four weeks or more, depending upon approval times.  We have a program in place for a green screen workflow as well as a jpg workflow program.

H&H is excited about the new sports club that was announced this month!For the past five years, H&H has been working diligently to shape and mold a well-rounded sports photography program to help photographers be successful. This year, we have once again improved our sports program by creating the H&H Sports Club.

The H&H Sports Club is designed to encourage our customers to take advantage of ALL aspects of the H&H’s sports program AND to give discounts on products and services. We believe the sports club program will help photographers better mold their own program which can ultimately help their bottom line. That, of course, is the line that we all pay attention to!
