Behind the Scenes: Columbia, MO

12.15.14BLOG > Featured | Holidays

A few days ago, we had an epiphany… although many of you send us your work all season long, you probably don’t know a whole lot about what the lab looks like or how we actually operate during our busiest months.ย The holiday season, or “rush” as we like to call it, begins the day after Thanksgiving and runs all the way through December 23rd (the last possible moment you can place an order in time for Christmas).

While many of our emails boast about our stellar turnaround time and impeccable quality, we often fail to mention one of the most important parts of our formula:ย our people. During rush, we are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to accommodate the increased volume for the holidays. All of the different departments come together to lend a hand with even the smallest tasks. While many could see the long hours and hard work as a burden, it’s these moments that make it truly special to work in a photo lab. Regardless of position, we come together and work side-by-side to make sure that we honor our promise to you.

We are on the homestretch and have a few long nights ahead of us, but we can’t help but smile. We feel so fortunate for the amazing people that work within the walls of our lab and for all of the talented photographers like yourself.

I would like to thank you all for your work all year and the quality product you deliver. Being photographers and knowing how we intend our products to look, makes it hard to find a lab who can read our minds. I am looking forward to another year with you! Merry Christmas to all! PS – most photographers are also working right along with you in the midnight hours trying to please our customers! Thanks for the extra hard work.

John Paquette says:

I am constantly amazed, blessed and sooo very thankful for ALL of your HARD and super FAST work!

We at Debbie Williams photography took a road trip from Baton Rouge LA to visit with Milers . We had a great time with them, we had a tour of the lab every one was very helpful and made us feel very welcome, nothing was too much trouble and we now understand how the whole operation works. Also when we contact them we know who we are speaking to. Milers are our one stop shop who provides us with all our school work, sports, weddings and general photography. Great job guys keep up the good work

These remind me of my years in printing. Good times. Thanks for sharing.

We’ve been with Millers for over 35 years!! They were the best then and continue to get better and better every year!! They go out of their way to guarantee everything is perfect with your work. We consider them to be one of the keys to our success. They are a vendor, yes…but they are so much more to us. We consider them friends, partners and family.

Hi Everyone,

Pretty cool to see the inside of the lab! We want to thank you for a great year and we look forward to many years to come! Happy Holidays!

I really love how Millers has really stepped up. I used WHCC before and their service is great but I appreciate how Millers is on point with over night shipping and the quality of their press print cards! My choice for sure this holiday season!

Love seeing a behind the scenes peek, thanks for sharing! You are AWESOME! Great customer service and beautiful products!

Happy Holidays!
