One of our past members Argha Dutta, has started a photographic business in St. Helens. The following is an email from him to us:
It has been a while since I was a member of South Liverpool Photographic Society. Let me offer you congratulations on being elected as the new President of the club. I am just dropping you an email as it is the beginning of a new season and so competitions and exhibitions will be on every one’s minds. There are a variety of services that my business offers, from photography to printing to framing. I can also supply equipment if so required though specialised and expensive stock is not carried routinely but can be ordered if anyone requires something specific.
With regards to printing and print products, the studio currently has offers on the following:
- Canvas prints by one get one half price (made in house)
- Photo prints from 8p (for those members who use bulk printing options)
- Poster prints from as little as £7.50
- Frames from £3.50
- Albums from £3.99
I can also supply memory cards and flash drives to members in a variety of sizes and class options according to their data transfer needs. I am an authorised distributor of Hama products and so if you require camera cases I can supply these too (though they will need to be ordered from the catalogue as I do not currently carry surplus stock). For those members who also do wedding photography I can supply albums, cd folios and other wedding specific products, but these are special order items and therefore members will need to consider costs for postage before ordering these items from me.
Members can order printer paper from me in different sizes, but if members were to order paper in bulk then it can reduce their postage costs. (To give you an idea if members were to group their order together so it would be a minimum order of £250 then I could get the paper in without charging for delivery). I am also able to supply printer inks if members give me printer specs so I can check supplies before ordering.
I also carry stock of popular battery sizes AA or AAA starting from £1.99.
Frames are made in house and prices start from £45 for a custom frame including glass, mount and backing board and hanging attachments. There are so many products that we can stock, it would be better for members to pop in and talk to me about their requirements. Or like my facebook page
Now with that in mind, I have an offer for members of South Liverpool Photographic Society. If a member brings in their membership card then I will give them a 5% discount off their first order.
