PeachyPics.net Posted March 9, 2011 Report Share Posted March 9, 2011 Hi, I'll introduce myself before I ask a question as I'm new here. I'm Andrea Lane and I have a photography studio in Aylesbury. I started the business last May and I run it with my 3 daughters. I work full time, while the girls each do 3 days a week and I have two college girls who come in to help at the weekends. My studio is in a shopping mall with a fair footfall although not as much as some might think. I follow New Photo Digest on Twitter and they suggested I might like to post some questions here. We often have people pop into our studio asking if we print photographs and so far we have just sent them to Jessops. (They are outside in the high street). We are trying to make up our minds whether to get a Kodak Kiosk in our reception so that people can print their own photographs. I went to Focus on Imaging on Monday and Kodak had a stand there with a number of kiosks and when I gulped at the price he suggested I might like to think about a refurbished kiosk. It works out at about £3000 with four sets of media (paper and ribbon). I was quite interested in the fact that people could log on to their facebook, flikr or picasa account and print off too. I would probably use it to print my own 6 x 4 images rather than send to the lab (we offer free 6x4s of images if they buy over a certain amount). We hope that it will be another way of getting people into the studio. Are there any other photographers with studios that have a kiosk? How do you find it? Did it take you long to make your money back? Any advice of any sort will be valuable! Thanking you in anticipation..... ;D Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
