Scanner Rental Program

Optican Scanner

Many of our school photographers have that one or two jobs each year during which they have more camera setups than is normal for them.  If you are scanning during school shoots, and need an extra or backup scanner for this situation, we now have a solution for you!

Simply notify customer service that you need an additional backup scanner and give them the date(s) of the shoot.  We will send a scanner (or two, if necessary) and bill your account for the full amount of the scanner, $195 each, plus shipping.  When it is returned, your H&H account will be issued a credit for the scanner cost, less the rental fee.

The cost of a rental scanner is $30 for up to 15 consecutive days, including weekends.  If you rent one scanner, your account will be charged $195 for the scanner, plus $5 for shipping.  When we receive it back within the 15 day period, we will credit your account $165 after deducting the $30 rental fee.

Included with the scanner will be an instruction sheet, a sync slate barcode, usb cable, and a FedEx billable stamp for return shipping.  Scanners will be checked for verification that they are in good working condition before being shipped out, and upon return.

These rental scanners are intended to be used as backups. There is a limit of two rental scanners at a time per account, and at least one scanner must have been purchased prior to renting.  Scanner rentals are subject to availability, and may be reserved in advance through customer service.

Pre-pay &Proof Plan Flyer Design

Prepay Flyer

Pre-pay flyers and proof plans are similar in many ways. They both show packages, package prices, add-on items and studio information. They both have order forms for the end consumer to mark their choices and tear-off envelopes for payment. The main difference between the two types of flyers is whether the images of the student/player being photographed are shown on the flyer or not.

Pre-pay flyers show stock images in the add-on items and do not show actual proofs of the student or player. They are ordered in bulk and handed out before the shoot and returned to the photographer on picture day with the form filled out and payment enclosed.

Proof plans are not printed until after the students or players have been photographed. Each student or player will receive a flyer showing his/her images in both the proofs and add-on items. Many common text fields such as first and last names, teacher, grade, sport, school, and many more can be automated to fill in from data provided in your eZevent job. This helps reduce confusion with reading handwriting and also makes it quicker and easier for parents to fill out the form.

The H&H Design Center can help with your school and sports pre-pay flyer and proof plan design needs. If you would like to request a flyer design, simply fill out our flyer design form.

You can customize as much or as little on each flyer design as you like. There are different fees for design based on how much is customized. If you would like to use the stock packages, prices and add-on items in the flyer designs shown on our site, just enter “Same as Stock” in each package field in the Package Contents area and then choose “Keep all add-on items same as stock design” under the Add-On Items heading.

The service time for pre-pay flyer design is 3 days. Once we receive design approval, we place the initial order for you. The full-resolution files will also be sent to you for placing future orders whenever needed.

Proof plan service times are split into two phases; design and setup. Each phase has its own service time; design is 5 days and setup is 3. Once the final approval for setup is received we send the eZevent files via email so you can place your flyer orders.
