July 2015
We are halfway through the year and it is hard to believe! It will soon be time to start taking school pictures, fall families, portraits and planning for the Holiday season. So to kick off “half-time”, we decided to try something different this year – offer our popular 12 Days of Christmas Sale in July! This is a great time to stock up on samples or try a new product you want to offer. Check out all of the details below or on our website. Click here to find out more. H&H will be closed on Friday, July 3rd to celebrate Independence Day and to give our employees time off with their families.  We also want to wish you a very happy 4th of July –  enjoy the time with your family and friends while celebrating our great country’s birthday!

NEW Leather Wrap Album

Watch for our big announcement during the week of July 13th.  Our newest album will be added to hhstudio software and we will let you know as soon as it is available to order.  Click here to view album details

We recently moved the faux leather album cover selections in our ordering software and on our website. You can now find them as a sub-category, Faux Leathers and Suede, within the Leather Covers Section of hhstudio ordering software.

With this move, we have also expanded the faux album covers to include several new options and a new cover selection called full grain leather. This new faux leather has the look of full grain leather and comes in 5 great colors. It is a perfect selection for those who prefer a substitute for real leather – and the price is right!

Check out our full line of faux leathers that includes dark chocolate gator, basket weave, reptile, floral flourish, copper saddle and black checks! All are now available with a cameo option.
