JUNE 2015 – Happy Summer! For many of you with children, this is a chance to regroup and spend a little more time together and relax a bit.

It is also a great time to follow up with clients from your spring sessions to see if they would like to order any additional products using their images. Look for some great specials coming soon as we will be featuring our popular 12 Days of Christmas special during the month of July. Speaking of specials, we are currently showcasing our metals. You have to try them to believe them! From our stand-alone Curved Metals available in three finishes, now including a gorgeous matte finish, to our easel-backed Metal Prints and Framed Metal Float Frames-we promise you will be suitably impressed.  Image above by Karen Goforth

Print on metal! You can select Aluminessence for a transparent, aluminum base that will allow the metal to show through or select Brilliant for a bright, clear, glossy white base that will showcase the image while maintaining true white and brilliant color that pops! We also have a beautiful new matte finish available on select sizes. Try our Designer Metals for fun shapes. Stand out mounts give these great impact in your space. If you truly want to WOW your customers, offer up our Framed Float Metal Prints. They are rich and layered creating a beautiful, dramatic finished piece ready to hang.

Our wraps provide a contemporary alternative to framing and a unique line of product to add to your studio’s collection. Choose our sleek slim wraps or our simple canvas wrapped stretcher frame. Many sizes and finishes available. Our sale is a great opportunity to try our Cluster or Mosaic arrangements too! Offered in both canvas ink jet and photographic pearl paper.

Our image blocks are soft, satin-finished photographic prints wrapped around a wood block base. The tight 90-degree wrapped edges give clean lines for a finished, contemporary look. This system allows you to choose either a single image block or multiple image blocks arranged as a collage and floated on top of the base. Our blocks come finished and ready to hang.

Best of all, our interchangeable block system allows you to easily remove the floating blocks and create a new look or update images. This makes the image block perfect for Baby’s First Year programs, wedding, engagement, senior and children collages.

Competitor Pro Templates

Available for Baseball, Basketball, Field, Football, Golf, Soccer, Softball, Tennis, Track, Volleyball, and Wrestling


Pro series templates feature color and sports picker. This means that you set up your price list packages with the products to sell, then you can select the color and sport for each team. Pro templates keeps your price list simple while offering the flexibilty to have different teams and different sports in the same sports job.




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 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.

We must receive your orders by June 15th for them to be produced by our final production date of June 26th.

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


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.
