Like clockwork each year, an imaginary switch is flipped the day after Thanksgiving. We hurriedly get to the lab on Friday morning to discover that our photographers have announced the beginning of the holiday busy season. Rush, as we fondly call it in the lab, is the ultimate test of teamwork, communication, time management and training.
We bring on loads of seasonal help to assist with our influx in volume. Veteran employees spend a great deal of time training and assisting new faces with their tasks to insure that each order is properly printed and packaged. When we say “shipping around the clock”, this is not hyperbole. We are here at the lab 24 hours a day, seven days a week until December 23rd so your clients can receive their packages in time for Christmas Day.
Through these late nights and early mornings, our teams bond and grow closer than ever before. We are able to come through with last-minute emergency orders, troubleshoot ordering issues and assist with the many details that come with running a photography business during the holidays. All of these amazing feats are possible for one reason: our people.
We invite you to take a moment to check out the amazing individuals behind the scenes that bring your creations to life. (Columbia, Mo lab)
