Gift Certificates - How do they work?
I recently added a “Gift Certificates” page to my website and I wanted to do a little post about how it works. My session fee (the fee to have me come to your home with a portable studio and take pictures of your pet) is $190. Once the pictures are taken, you have the option to buy all the prints you would like without obligation to purchase a certain amount. My mounted (or matted) prints start at $125 for an 8x10 and go up from there. I also offer framed and canvas prints or customized products we can discuss in your consultation. My packages start at $900 and include matted prints and a canvas (number and size depending on the package you purchase). I do not sell digital files, but you will receive the complimentary digital file corresponding to whichever prints you choose, so you will be able to share them on social media or email to family if you choose.
I tell you all this so you can be aware of what you are purchasing when you buy one of my gift certificates. Each certificate has a face value from $100 to $500. That face value will reduce the ending price of the session fee plus whatever print choices the recipient makes. In other words if you purchase a $500 gift certificate, the recipient will have $190 for the session fee and $310 to spend on prints.
So, if you have someone in your life who would love to have photos of their pet, you have a way of helping them towards the total price or covering it completely. If you are someone who would love to have a photo session and have a birthday, graduation or other occasion on the horizon, consider asking friends and family to pitch in by purchasing a gift certificate towards your session.
Hopefully, I helped answer some of your questions about how my gift certificates work. If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask below or contact me through the contact form.
