Greetings and salutations.
The smile factory is retooling and restocking and almost ready to hit the road to capture the magic, excitement and smiles in schools from Prince George to Burns Lake.
We are introducing a new program this year, designed to put photos into parents hands faster and direct to your door with expedited service from the good folks at Technicare Imaging in Edmonton, Alberta.
Many schools are welcoming the paper-less proofing program. Basically, this means photos will be available for viewing and ordering from a password-protected gallery within 24 hours of capture, at the latest. There will be 31 backgrounds to choose from, all accessible from your phones, tablets and computers; gallery details and passwords will come home on photo day.
If the gallery details are misplaced, simply contact Lorne @ Clarke Action Photography in Prince George via firstname.lastname@example.org and we will send you the gallery link and your personal password; don't be shy about contacting us after normal business hours - we are happy to serve you morning, noon or night!
Schools participating in the paperless proofing program will not have to fill out any forms and send order details back to school. Once you see your photos online, you can order and photos will be shipped directly to your door from Technicare Imaging in Edmonton; photo orders will take 2-3 days to be processed and shipped in a secure, cardboard envelope that will protect your photos during transport.
If you do receive a paper proof, you can still order online and skip the delays of sending your form back to school and expedite the photo delivery to your door! The online ordering site is safe, secure and accepts visa or mastercard.
