photo lab newsletter - march 2015

MARCH 2015

Spring is in the air, and so are the winds of change. As we do some spring cleaning around the lab, we have decided to do a little spring cleaning for the look of our newsletter as well. Beginning with the March 2015 issue, we will have a leaner, and cleaner look. Simply scroll through to read more, or link to lengthier articles or blogs. Enjoy! Image above by Ty Fischer

The ultimate press book! This gorgeous photo cover comes in glossy or a soft velvet touch matte finish. Along with your choice of satin, linen, lay-flat, velvet touch or lay-flat glossy interior pages; this book sells itself with its beauty and price. Clients will be knocking at your door to get one!



The quality of our slim wraps will separate you from other photographers. This product utilizes a photographic print, which is then wrapped around a layer of foam board to create the finished, soft and updated look. With our optional stand out mount sizes, you can create a unique and dimensional grouping to offer your clients to display
their prints.


These little books are designed to either stand alone or be a fun companion to your album. We simply use your album design from one of our 3 common aspect ratios; square, 8×10 or 8×12, to create the Companion Mini – so no need to create a new layout. You can also create a design just for the Companion Mini and use it as a stand-alone product.
ALL STUDIO SAMPLE ALBUMS-50% off through March

Our albums and books are handcrafted with attention to detail and quality. Take advantage of this amazing sale. There is no better way to sell more albums to your customers than by having actual album samples on hand for them to touch and feel.

H&H Address Labels

Make each card unique and special. You will find unlimited uses for this product – use them in your studio for marketing and also sell them to your clients as an add-on product. Great for save the date and wedding invitations, Holiday cards, graduation cards, gift tags and bag tags!

Just a reminder, that you may use one coupon code per order, so if placing an order for cards and address labels, you will need to place two separate orders.

ESPN Magazine Competitor Pro Memory Mate-Horizontal





From time to time, we like to refresh our various product lines. We will be making some updates to our Sports templates. H&H has offered ESPN licensed products as part of H&H’s sports program since 2011. We were recently notified by ESPN that in 2015, they will discontinue their personalized photographic product licensing program for all photography labs. To give you the time you need to keep your existing agreements and produce ESPN products through spring season, H&H has worked out an arrangement with ESPN that will allow us to continue to produce ESPN branded products through June 26th, 2015. After that date, H&H will no longer be able to legally produce ESPN branded sports templates.

Our NEW Competitor Pro templates make an excellent choice if you have previously been using the ESPN products.

  • New, larger second-sale marketing and package verification insert
  • Show the student’s image in the product instead of a general sample image – increases sales
  • Encourages customers to go to your hhimagehost site to view and purchase products
  • New free products that will drive parents to your hhimagehost site


  • Because we believe this product will lead to greater sales for you studio on second sale products, we are underwriting a portion of the cost. The insert is available for only $ .27 each – that is only $.07 more than the current 4×10 package id insert
  • Order package inserts on the order screen in hhschools and eZsports. They can be produced for buyers only – or include the non-buyers with a non-buy package and the inserts will be printed for all students you photograph
  • Click “auto post to hhimagehost” to have H&H automatically push the images and passwords from the package order for the online second sale!


We pride ourselves in providing our customers not only with excellent products, but with great educational resources as well. Our blog features articles about equipment, lighting, advice from other professionals and all kinds of great photography tips. This is just one of the many ways that we provide our customers with the tools they need to succeed as professional photographers.
