Kick Costco's butt!

Pick up one of these, hire a pretty girl to oversee that part the operation, and schedule the Brinks truck pickups!  No problem!

Hi Guys

Just adding to the thread with similar experiences to those above, re the small time wasting orders and costs associated. I've had a lot of new photographers come on board through fellow photographer members talking up my services and the bad prints they've had done at other places. Even though I've yet to implement something similar along the lines of minimum amount orders I decided to make the turn around timer longer to 5 to 7 days as opposed to 2 or 3.

I'd found I was running around doing the small jobs to get them out and leaving the bigger canvas/art works to languish. So far everyone seems happy with the wait and I can use my time and printer more efficiently.

Certainly the 'one size fits all' approach is what I've been doing, offering photo, canvas and art printing. I had looked at going into metallic prints but thought 'will it be more small orders?'. So either have a high price point for the service or minumum order/sizing. Points to ponder...
