YaY and 'DO'h!

I just got a HUGE album order from a client - Allie and I did their engagement photos and they are having their wedding in Bali.


The YAY comes from the fact that they ordered two top of the line leather bound guest sign-in books, cover embossed, different photos in each (ie, two different designs), for their 350+ guest wedding, plus two very large prints to display at the reception.  Biggest album/print order I've ever gotten - it feels REALLY good!

The 'DO'h!' comes from the fact that they just now placed the order. . .and the wedding is in roughly 5 weeks. . .in Indonesia. . .


 


*Blink Blink. . .Cough. . .Stare. . .*


 


I'm smelling a MAJOR super sized rush fee here folks. . .!   By my best estimate here based on lab turnaround, etc. I'm going to have to get the spreads to the lab by Wednesday of this week to feel even remotely comfortable with this arrangement, and then once I get my grubby paws on them here for QC I would then need to rush ship them to his family in the U.S., hopefully getting to them before they fly to Bali for the wedding.  


Looks like I have my work cut out for me this week. . .holy crap.   


LOL!  Wish me luck ladies. . .!

There are several album companies that can do tat in two weeks. Kiss, Zook, and Pictage.  I would just get them printed by who ever you choose to bind - this will save you so much time.  I don't have prints shipped to me first - just upload, print & bind.


Good luck AND congrats!

Wooooot ladies would you believe I got it DONE! ! ! !!   Knocked out two albums in a day!  


I sat my toosh in a chair today and worked until my eyeballs nearly popped out :~)


Sent the proofs to my client and gave them a 12 hour deadline to sign off that they accept the design, and these babies are off to the lab hopefully first thing tomorrow morning. . .


Shari - YUP!   I use the same lab to print and bind. . .they are getting shipped here first, fully finished, and I found out that he has family here in Denver I can meet with on the 22nd or 23rd and give up the goods. . .no need to ship out again, whooo!  That gives my lab exactly 19-20 days to print, bind, and ship here which is several days within their estimated time frame, still tight but I think it's going to work.  I'm going to cough up a few bucks for rush shipping, just so I can sleep at night. . .lol!
