I'm pretty sure everyone has heard about the numerous staffing, supply, and shipping issues that has affected nearly every company in the US (if not the world.) Unfortunately, photography studios are also affected. Between labs facing challenges with staffing, running out of supplies, and then shipping companies being severely backlogged, turnaround times have increased. A recent order placed with one of my favorite labs took two weeks from the day I ordered it to the day I received it. In the past, I would have had it in 4 or 5 days.
From everything I've read in the news and from companies, this is only going to get worse with the holidays approaching.
Because of this, my recommendation for people who are planning on family photos as gifts for the holidays, to get your appointments scheduled soon. Any orders with lab products (prints, canvases, cards, etc) placed after Saturday, November 20th will not be guaranteed for Christmas Delivery. I can rush orders on my end, but once I submit it to the lab it is out of my hands, I am completely at my lab's and the shipper's mercy.
That being said, digital orders will have quicker turn around times. As a "thank you" to you for having patience with everything this crazy year, I'd like to send out this special offer. Between now and Friday, December 10th, take 10% off digital product orders of $200 or more. You must mention this promotion at the time you order.
Thank you and happy holidays!
