Thunder Grey Portrait Program
As you plan to use one of our spring programs it’s important that you consider all of the variables and allow enough time to be fully prepared on picture day. Not only do you need to make sure you have the background and equipment necessary for the shoot but also that your prepay flyer is printed or your proof plan is set up with our design team.
Once you’ve chosen your capture background and have all of the equipment you’ll need on-hand, testing and flyer design usually takes between 10-15 working days. Look at your calendar and consider if you have the time needed to complete the setup by picture day.
FLYER DESIGN & SETUP
Use the chart below to determine how much additional time is needed for your flyer design, setup and printing.
Service time guarantees are dependent on healthy communication with your studio, the number of flyers you are printing and will vary during peak season. Order early!
