Your pictures are in and you have your link to your online gallery. You love your pictures, but now what do you do? Read on to find out!
Your gallery email included a download pin for web-sized images; when you download these there will be no watermark. These web-sized files are specifically optimized for sharing on social media! (We also love it when you tag us on both Facebook and Instagram @views.by.v!)
You are welcome to use your product credit to purchase high-resolution pictures (which come with a print release) or order prints and products through my online store (found by clicking “Print Store” or the little shopping cart at the top right of the page).
It is ideal to place your order with me in person as I can answer any questions you may have; however, this is not always ideal (like right now with COVID-19). I do offer additional products to what is shown online, but I try to keep the store as simple as possible, so if you don’t see something you are interested in, please contact me at email@example.com for assistance!
I also offer Zoom meetings to walk you through placing your order, and will waive your shipping costs when placing your order through a Zoom meeting.
How To Order Your Senior Pictures Step 1:
Select Your Favorites
While I offer complimentary retouching for any image purchased, I do not do these “clean ups” on every image beforehand. If I did, it would take me a lot longer to deliver your gallery due to the time involved!
Little things like stray branches or blemishes will not be easily noticed on web-sized images that are just being seen on Instagram and Facebook, but I know you will want them cleaned up for print. Therefore, go ahead and create a Favorites List (by clicking the Heart button) specifically for any items you would like retouched *before* going through with your purchase, and then I will know which to go back and work on (24-48 hour turnaround time; I will let you know when they are done or you will see the images in the finalized folder).
Inside the favorites list you can leave me any additional comments/requests as needed.
How To Order Your Senior Pictures Step 2: See Available Products
If you’re not ready to order but want to see what products are offered, click the “Print Store” on the top of the page to scroll through the variety of products we offer including graduation cards, framed prints, and albums!
As you click through the products you will be able to read descriptions and see the options for size, frame color, album material, etc. You can also visit my products page here to read more as well as see sample videos!
How To Order Your Senior Pictures Step 3: Ordering
First of all, I highly recommend you do all self-ordering by computer and not by phone or tablet. When ordering by phone some features of the store may be cut off on the screen.
Either on your gallery page or when you open an individual picture, you will see a little shopping cart (“buy”).
Once you click “Buy” a new page will open allowing you to select how to display the image.
Once you select your product you will be able to choose further options inside of the page. Shown below is how to order a framed print – first choose your size, then frame material. There are additional pictures available to click through to aid in your selection.
Do you want to order graduation announcements and/or thank you cards?
Select your design and customize to your heart’s desire! Cards are available both with foil imprinting and without, and the colors and text are fully customizable.
Not in love with any of the designs? Contact me to create something specifically for your family.
How To Order Your Senior Pictures Step 4: Checkout
When you are finished selecting your images, click “Checkout.”
On the left side there is an area for you to Apply Coupon, Apply Gift Card, or Add a Note to the Seller.
**Please note that I cannot refund your order after checkout has been completed if you neglect to enter your coupon or gift card code.**
I will do my best to ship all of your items together; however, if something has an extended delayed shipping time I will notify you and ship as items are available.
