As we launch into a fresh new calendar, Zookbinders takes the time to evaluate products and services both old and new. In our efforts to provide innovative products and solutions for professional photographers we make annual changes to our catalogs and services. Let’s look at what’s new at Zookbinders in 2021 AND what will stay the same.
New(er) services that go beyond albums!
Our Editing and Culling Services continue to be popular, especially with photographers who experience a backlog of jobs. Using Lightroom Smart Previews it’s easy to transfer preferences and settings to the team at Zook to get the look you like.
Photographers are raving about our S.M.A.R.T Program and a Downloadable Album Brochure that can be edited and shared with clients. In literally three steps, you can increase album sales and generate additional income.
Zookbinders continues to find ways to be a resource for professional photographers. We continue to take on new clients for video editing and website design. If you’re interested in learning more about either the services, please reach out to set up a consultation
Photographers know that selling high-quality professional albums can elevate their customer’s experience and bring in additional income. Zookbinders realizes that 2020 was financially challenging for the photography industry.
In an effort to transition smoothly into a new year and to be supportive of contracts that may have been extended or rescheduled, we have kept our annual modifications small. As a result, we will be freezing 98% of our prices! As we review what’s new at Zookbinders in 2021, we’d like to highlight what will stay the same for our customers.
