We offer a wide range of services to help to preserve your memories. After all, photography is our passion, but making memories come alive is our mission. Please contact Kelly at 630-659-4081 if you have questions regarding our services. Most of our services have a 1 week or less turn time. Everything is done in my house, so you can trust that your photos will be protected as if they were our own. Remember, we love photos and telling the stories behind the photos, and are here to help you preserve your memories for many years to come!
Here are some other services we offer:
Confused as to what all of these things mean, we were too when Kelly told us about them. So, we created a "in Kelly's words" to what she means by the above bullets:
Do you have a photo that is cracked or water damaged? If so, bring it into the shop and let us take a look. Most likely we will be able to recreate the damaged area and make the photo look almost like it was taken yesterday! Unbelievable, yet true, I know.
Photo Color Correction
Do you have yellow, brown or white photos that are in an album, and still fading? First, get them out of that old album. It's wrecking them! Next, bring them into us. We can color correct them so that they look like they are brand new photos! Amazing, we know. We scan in your originals, color correct them and then print out 4x6 photos and put the digital prints onto a CD for your convenience. Cost is $1.00 per photo with the 4x6 print, .75 cents per photo for just your corrected images on CD, no 4x6 print. We will gladly suggest where you can get your digital photos printed, if you'd like. Just ask us!
Wouldn't it be great to have all of your images, both digital and prints, on a DVD? We can help! Just bring in your photos, pick out some music (you can email us your favorite songs, or we can get them for you for $1.50 each), and we'll do the rest! You can move around the order of your images, you can add more, take some out, etc. We are very interactive and don't like to charge for changes, so long as you're willing to wait for them! We can put your photos to music and words, so that you will have them for generations to come. This photo montage idea is a big hit at special events including: Graduation, Retirement, Bat Mitzvah, Confirmation, Anniversary, Wedding, Wedding Rehearsal, Birthday Party, Bachelorette/Bachelor Parties, Company Picnic, Baby Shower, and any event you can think of! There is no limit to what can be done. Just call us, after all, we are here to help! We even have the projector and slide screen you can rent, seriously, just ask!
Negative & Slide Scanning
Are you sick of all of your negatives being in drawers and in boxes, unorganized and cluttering up your living space? If so, then why not scan them in so that you can preserve them digitally? We offer digital negative scanning. You supply the memories and we create the magic of putting them onto CD. The turn around time is about a week to get these done. The more you have, the less you have to pay, call for price quote, but be sure to have a guesstimate of how many negative strips you have (there is usually about 4 photos per strip). You know that this would make it a lot easier to copy photos, right!?
We offer graphic design services to make your idea come to life! From baby shower announcements and engagement invites to corporate branding (business cards, logo, signage, web site design) we can do it all for you. Take a look at what we have accomplished when you visit our shop. Just ask Kelly for more details.
Baby Announcements, Invitations and More!
We take pride in our originality when it comes to your special occasion. We can use your photos and make them into a piece of art that you can mail! Stop by the shop to see the postcards, invitations, calendars and announcements that we have done for our happy customers. They've been gracious enough to let us borrow a sample of their dream invite or announcement so that you might be inspired to do something similar. The sky's the limit, there is no idea that is too wild for us! Try it!
Photo Scanning and Reprints
We have a Sony Picture Station and a Canon color copier. Both of these machines are conveniences that we offer to our croppers and neighbors alike. If you're cropping and you want a 5x7 or 8x10 of a photo, we can scan it in, enlarge it and print out a new one within 10 minutes! Really, it's awesome! Also, you can bring in your digital card (scan disk, compact flash, all of them really) and print out your images. We have wallet size up to 8.5x11 for now. We're looking at getting a 12x12 printer, now wouldn't that be awesome. If you would use a 12x12 printer, please let Kelly know as she's the one that will eventually have to purchase it! And the more people want it, the more likely she is to go and get it sooner than later. Ya know? Also, we can scan in your photos to save to a CD with a click of a button. Just ask for help, we can be the workers while you browse our stickers and paper, of which is always changing!
SO MANY MORE!
