November 2012

'Tis the Season to be Jolly! And with the Christmas holiday season fully under way, there is quite a bit to be jolly about. Orders are up, people are loosening their wallets, and sentimentality is running high... it's the perfect time to be selling photographs!

So are you prepared for the holiday rush? If not, here are a few pointers to help you make it through all of the Christmas craziness with a minimal number of problems:

Christmas & Holiday Suggestions

There will always be somebody that wants to cause trouble, but by following the suggestions given above, most of the Christmas craziness can be avoided.

What's New?

For those of you that don't follow us on twitter or facebook it may have seemed like there hasn't been a lot of activity around here for the past few months, but we have actually been very busy!

New Storefront

The project taking most of our time lately is the new storefront that we launched just last month. If you haven't already seen it in action, you should definitely take a look at our demo! Some of the benefits of the new storefront include: larger images, simpler navigation, better mobile compatibility, and a cleaner/more modern look.

To enable the new storefront on your account, go into the "preferences" page within the "Setup" tab and select the "Latest and Greatest" option from the "Storefront Style" droplist.

Order Fulfillment

We have also been busy adding on to our fulfillment options (U.S. only), and we have recently added free shipping and multiple types of premium packaging.

Free Shipping
All orders placed through our fulfillment service now receive free ground shipping on orders over $11.00. Orders under $11.00 are rounded up to $11.00 and also have no additional shipping costs.

Elegant Proof Box
We recently added two beautiful packaging options to our fulfillment area. The first option is strictly for 4x6 images and is called an "Elegant Proof Box." Elegant proof boxes come in a variety of colors and can hold up to 300 4x6 images.
