A big question among professional photographers and everyday consumers alike is what lab to trust with their photo processing. There is a drugstore with a mini lab on every corner and dozens of online labs so why choose a local professional lab? The convenience, quality and customer service are what set us apart from the rest!
The convenience offered by a local pro lab is a combination of what drugstore labs and online labs can offer. By choosing a local pro lab you are given a quick turn around time, like you receive from a drugstore, as well as the ability to pick up your order rather than paying shipping fees. We also offer a variety of ways to send your orders, much like online labs, you can send orders through FTP, Dakis, Labtricity, e-mail or hand delivery depending on which method best fits your need. Your orders are then received and immediately printed with any special instructions you may include and are typically available within an hour.
Quality is definitely something that speaks for itself. We work very hard to be proud of every image that leaves our building. We use top grade products to assure that you are happy with your final result. Our Fujicolor Crystal Archive Professional paper often sets us apart from other labs because of its superiority to other paper. Our trained professional lab technicians constantly monitor our equipment to make sure that it is in top condition and produces the best quality possible. The final product is what people see and what they possess and we are determined to make it something that is treasured.
The one major thing that sets a local professional lab apart from any other lab is the customer service. There is a certain comfort that comes from placing your order into the same set of hands you have grown to trust, time and time again. Our lab techs develop relationships with our customers, we become familiar with their work and their likes and dislikes. We carefully look over every order that is received to make sure that it is exactly as the customer wants before printing. We treat each order as though it is our own and with any question that arises, we won’t hesitate to call and clarify. Once an order is printed it is then delicately packaged and you are given a personal call to let you know your order is ready for pickup or shipped, depending on the chosen method. We are also available to assist you in many other ways, whether you have a question about Photoshop, how to design an album or just a second opinion, we are happy to help!
Other labs may have their advantages but a local professional lab has the most to offer. Not only do you get the convenience and quality but also the best customer service available whether you are in need of a print, an album, photo retouching, restoration or a great photo gift. While you may pay a little more, remember you aren’t just paying for a print, you are paying for an experience as well as expertise. So hopefully in making your decision on what type of lab to choose you will take this into consideration and pay us, your local professional lab, a visit!
