Our customer service staff is your support system for business decisions. We not only answer questions about products, we can help you streamline your business. We can give you suggestions and ideas to improve workflow. We can help save you pre-production time. Give us a call and just ask what we can do for you!

Exhibit runs from November 16, 2018 through January 6, 2019
Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art, St. Joseph, Missouri
H&H is honored to be a sponsor for the “Portraits Americana” exhibit. For this exhibition, Guest Curator, Glenn Rand has chosen works that will show how American artists used and are still using the photographic portrait to bring a greater understanding of the subjects, settings, personalities and the artists’ vision. This exhibition is about American artists producing portraits since the turn of the 20th Century. It provides insights into the way these artists used various tools and approaches to reach the essence of their subjects. The common point is that they were all produced as art that will affect the viewers.
