hhstudio updates

We continue to update our product line, including the recent changes and additions to hhstudio software:

New Album Covers

Albums/Guest Books/Panos
We added cover colors Pearl Pewter-Premium Leather and Charcoal Croc-Embossed Exotic. In our album line, we added multiple cameos to the 11×14 and 14×11 Leather Albums. We also removed Twill and Chevron cover materials from our Album and Photographic Pano Book line up.

Embossed Exotic Charcoal Croc

Pearl Pewter Premium Leather


With jewelry, we have our classic line that contains our standard pewter and sterling silver pendants, charms and necklaces. These are very popular and we maintain these items for longer periods of time – as long as they are requested by customers.

We also carry a “trending” line – because styles and trends change. This gives our customers new and fresh pieces to offer their customers…to help keep their jewelry line current. Examples of the “trending” style of jewelry would be our Leather collections. While these items may be added or retired, we generally offer these “trending” pieces for one or more years, based on demand.

With that, we have retired the Ferggi and Jordan Necklaces as well as the Round Christmas Ornament. We also recently retired our Claire Leather Wrap Bracelet, and the Claire Leather Cuff Bracelet. Our new Teri Trio Bracelet was added to software last month.
