Happy June! Spring is drawing to a close and I hope you all are not experiencing the kind of seasonal allergies that I am. The daily attacks by nature are getting a little overwhelming.
Unlike all that pollen, however, our imaging specials for June are nothing to sneeze at! Through the end of this month, we’ll be offering our MDF display-ready panels at 20% off the normal price and taking up to $100 off of the price of our popular Gather Box service.
MDF panels are a great way to capture the heft and presence of a framed print without fussing about with an extra step in the process or breakable glass—we call them “display-ready panels” because they’re just as simple as that! Larger sizes feature a chamfered edge for a little extra gravitas; smaller sizes can be hung on the wall or stand on any desk or side table with a convenient built-in easel. Normally starting at $14.99, through June 30th you can get one of the little guys for under $12. Just use coupon code 840, in-store or online.
Pssst… these make sharp-looking, durable awards, too. An 8×10 MDF panel is an excellent option when a sheet of faux-parchment paper isn’t quite substantial enough!
Of all the things we do in our labs, preserving whole archives of family history may be the most gratifying. A disc full of jpegs can be so much more accessible to folks these days than hundreds (or thousands) of prints in shoe boxes, not least because it’s easy to give copies to everyone in the family.
The Gather Box makes the process of digitizing those piles of prints super simple: you buy the box, fill the box, return the box, and voila—a few weeks later your photos will be ready to pick up, accompanied by a disc or USB drive full of digital versions of each image. They never have to leave the building, so you don’t have to worry about your archive getting lost in the mail.
Each Gather Box holds approximately 1,500 4×6 photos, but you might fit more (or fewer) depending on the size of your prints. Each image will be suitable for reproduction at the same size, or you can upgrade to a Gather Box Gold for images that can be enlarged up to four times as large. (I would highly recommend the latter.)
For the month of June only, get one or more Basic Gather Boxes for $199 each, or Gold Gather Boxes for only $249. Click here to learn more, then come on in to load up. There’s no time limit, so if you’re not ready to pack your boxes right away, you can still take advantage of the promotion now. (Hot tip: that also makes a Gather Box a great gift for a historically-minded friend or relative.)
