Upload & Sell: Off
Well, a good question, and it's tough to know the answer to that. In short, my flush mounted albums are quite a significant investment compared to what people spend on services. For some it's too much. The matted album from the lab I use would work out as almost exactly what they're paying for serviced, and maybe 20-30% more. It just seems unlikely anyone would want that to do that *with me*.
I had a meeting in Oct. After seeing my 'book' she expressed an interest in something quite traditional, meaning the matted albums. I mentioned they're less common these days, and quite costly... I showed her my 'handmade' album and she really loved the quality, the layout. Was very complimentary. So I felt that was that done with... Any other interest has been very casual. But I never heard back from that bride... that could have been just related to overall price, but hard to know.
Maybe next year, if I'm able to move business forward an album of this type might be feasible. But that would require many more bookings for 2013 to start with ;-)
